I would like to find out more information about Saphire MILLER listed in the 1880 census of Clay, Wayne County, Iowa. She was born in Canada in 1811 and living in the household of Henry McVAY (b.1825 IN) and his wife, Mary McVAY (b.1840, IL). She appears to have been Saphire's daughter.
Does anyone have access to an earlier census of Clay, or cemetery records of the area which might give more details about Saphire? I suspect she might have been my Saphirra LaRose, born in Ontario in c1812, but I need to prove or disprove this theory.
Any help or suggestions most welcome!

Looking for information on Sears families who moved from Kentucky to Wayne
Co, IA. In particular descendents of Jesse and Margaret Ellen Cox Sears.
I am also interested in knowing if greatgrandparents James Leander "Lee"
and Sarah Stewart Sears were living in Wayne County in 1870. Their oldest
child Alonzo Tullis Sears was said to have been born there in 1869.
