From The Emigrant Tribes: Wyandot, Delaware & Shawnee, A Chronology by Larry Hancks:
August 19; the new Wyandot Tribal Council requests that the Wyandott Commissioners make modifications in the treaty lists: to strike out Eudora Fish and Leander J. Fish (children of Paschal and Hester Zane Fish), and Sarah Zane, and to add Sarah Barbee (formerly Sarah Sarrahess), Rosanna Stone and her daughter Martha Driver, and all infants born between March 1 and December 8, 1855. The case of Noah E. Zane is to be reexamined.
Contradictory information about her birth year.
One source says she died in 1877 at the age of 29 (probably most reliable), which means she was born about 1848. However, she was listed in the 1854 Indian Census as age 12 (i.e., b. in 1842 or 1843.)
