Sarah and Elisha were married on 25 May 1880. They had three children.

In 1900, Sarah and Elisha had been married for 20 years and living on a farm in Polk Twp, Benton County, Iowa. They were buying the farm and had a mortgage. All three children were living with them.

By 1915 they were living in Center Point, Iowa and owned their home valued at $900. Elisha was retired and Sarah a housewife. This census had a separate card for each individual: under the remarks section of Elisha's card it said, "not well, weak mind."

In 1920 they were renting a home on East Gran(sp?) in Center Point, Iowa. Their son, Arden, is living with them and son, Archie, lives next door with his children. By 1925 they had moved to Summit Street in Center Point and were renting a home with both sons and grandchildren.  The rent on the home was $10 per month. This was an education census which indicates Elisha completed the 5th Reader in a Rural school and Sarah completed the 6th Reader.

The 1930 census shows them renting a farm in Washington Twp, Linn County, Iowa. Both sons were living with them and working on the farm.
