      From recollections of Ray Leidinger, Jr. 25 May, 1998, "let me tell you a little about my great-grandmother, Sarah Ann (McKenzie) McKenzie. She married her cousin, James Sebastian McKenzie and was in the Catholic line of the McKenzies. James Sebastian converted to Catholicism several days before their marriage in the Catholic Church. That church building is still in use. Sarah was a mid-wife, and she delivered many of the McKenzie babies. Catherine McKenzie Kelly, a cousin, now deceased, told me that "Aunt Sally" delivered her and all her brothers ansd sisters. Sarah had a small book which she kept in which she listed all of the deliveries she made, and usually the amount that was owed her for her services, which she usually did not receive. When she died, the state took her book because it was, in many cases, the only record that the state had of the births. She lived with my grandparents until her death on December 18, 1933.

      Also per Ray Leidinger: George, Susannah, Sarah Ann and her husband, James Sebastian are buried on the same plot in St. Patrick Cemetery, Cumberland, Maryland.

      Sarah Ann was christianed on 18 May 1857 at St. Patrick Church, Cumberland, Maryland by Rev. M. O"Reilly.

      Mrs. Sarah A. McKenzie, aged 77 years, widow of James McKenzie, died this morning at 6:25 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Bernadette Hoenicka, wife of Reid C. Hoenicka, Chief of the Cumberland Fire Department, 46 Bedford street, with whom she resided for years. Mrs. McKenzie had been seriously ill for the past month. She was a lifelong resident and was known by many as kindly, charitable and helpful. For the past 50 years she has been engaged as a practical nurse, and her name appears on the birth certificates of scores of well known persons here. Many will remember her for untiring aid and ever willing helpfulness during time of illness or trouble. She is survived by the following daughters: Mrs. Grover Zink, Mrs. John Nimick, Mrs. Susan Wickard, and Mrs. Hoenicka. Funeral arrangements are being made by Stein's.
