From The Emigrant Tribes: Wyandot, Delaware & Shawnee, A Chronology by Larry Hancks:
1856
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.

  Birth Notes:

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 1847 or 1848. Her age on the 1867 Wyandot Tribal Roll was 6, making her born in 1848 or 1849. She was considered an "orphan" in 1855.

However, she was listed in the 1854 Indian Census as age 9 (i.e., born in 1844 or 1845.) The census data may have been inaccurate, as suggested by the incorrect age of her brother Leander, which was off by 5+ years as compared to his actual birth date. The 1854 census also gave her father Paschal's age as 50, also 5 years too little.
