      ! IGI shows birth places of Mass., Quebec, Canada, and Connecticut. "Who's Which" lists her as Sarah Ada "Kinsella", wife of Rev. E.A. Wanless, born at Lowell, Mass. 4 Aug 1845, died 18 March 1871 in "Rustomuk", Turkey.

      Obituary and portrait on file. Listed as Ada Sarah in obit. Obit says she is buried on the banks of the Danube in Turkey/Bulgaria, so the tombstone in Argenteuil may not actually indicate her grave.

      From descendant Melinda Wilson: "I have one of the two campaign chests that Sarah Ada and Edward used to transport their clothes and then use them as dressers when they were missionaries in Turkey. My sister has the other one. "
