  9.   Origianal Marriage Certificate of Alexander Taber and Sarah Elizabeth Hall, The Berean Baptist Church.

    The Berean Baptist Church of the City of New York, an offshoot of the North Berian Baptist Church, was organized in 1838. "Its first house of worship was a small brick meeting-house in Kings Street, Near Varick. Its constituent members were only twenty-one in number. Doctor Perkins served the church six years, and was succeeded by John Dowling, D.D.. The church now moved to a new meeting-house with parsonage adjoining." It became The Memorial Church of Christ, Washington Square South, which, in turn, became the Judson Memorial Church in Washington Square South. Source: The First Church, and Other Churches P. 156 - 157. Although Alexander Taber and Sarah Elizabeth Hall are not listed as church members in Berean Church Registers.

  10.   Death Notice: Mrs. S.E. Somerville, or "Grandma" Somerville, as she was called, who passed out of this life on Monday last, was a faithfull member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and will be greatly missed by them. As her birthday fell on September 18, it was usually celebrated in connection with that of Miss Willard, which occurs on the 28th of this month. The Women's Christian Temperance Union members clad in white attended her funeral in a body and provided a beautiful floral piece in token of their love and esteem.

  11. 11.0 11.1 Newspaper Announcement: LOVED WOMEN PASSES TO WORLD BEYOND: Mrs. Sarah Somerville, formerly of this city, died Monday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Lufkin, in Los Angeles. The funeral service was held here at the Finch Chapel on Wednesday afternoon, under the auspices of the Burnside Women's Relief Corps of which order whe was a loved member. She had served a number of terms as chaplain of Burnside W.R.C. and she was also a member of the Appomattox Circle. The deceased was 88 years old last Saturday, and she had her daughter prepare the usual birthday entertainment, and remembered all her Sawtelle friends on that day. The deceased came to Sawtelle 18 years ago with her husband Dr. Somerville, and had resided in Sawtelle until recently. Her husband preceded her to the world beyond a few years ago, and her remains were laid to rest beside him in the widow's plot, Soldier's Home Cemetery. Rev. E.W. Mecum, former pastor of the Baptist Church, delivered a fitting tribute to the fine character of the departed, and many beautiful flowers attested the love and esteem in which Mrs. Somerville was held by Sawtelle people.

  12.   Samuel Hall, father of Sarah Elizabeth, in his Will dated June 3, 1874, "Eighth: From and after the termination of my said wife's interest in and occupancy of said house and three lots of land on South Tenth Street, Newark, New Jersey, I give and bequeath the same and every part and parcel thereof to my daughter Sarah Elizabeth widow of Alexander Tabor (deceased) residing in the City of Brooklyn, and in the State of New York, if she be there living, as a special bequest in fee simple and over and above all her other interests in my other property outside of the State of New Jersey, but should she not there be living, the said house and lot shall be sold, and the proceeds thereof be divided equally among her heirs ..." "Tenth: I will and direct my Executors herinafter named to pay to my daughter Sarah Elizabeth, widow of Alexander Tabor, deceased, an annuity of fifty dollars per month as long as she remains a widow." Sarah Elizabeth did move her family into the house on South Tenth Street, Newark. She took in James Somerville and his children, first as lodgers. Then she married James. He sold the property. Sarah Elizabeth forfeited her annuity and they moved to Dakota Territory to homestead.
  13. As Alexander Taber's mother was a confectioner and her other children, James and William apparently learned that skill from her, the assumption is that Sarah learned that skill from the Taber family when she married Alexander.
