The 1810 census is ambiguous, with one woman each in the 26-45 and over 45 categories, so it is difficult to narrow down further [Andrew Yeagley, 3M<10, 1M10-16, 1M>45, 3F<10, 2F16-26, 1F26-45, 1F>45, 1810 cen., Dunbar tp., Fayette co., PA, 110].

Place of death: Unknown.
She was living when her husband wrote his will.

Spouses:
The History of the Lincoln Family states that Andrew Yeagley's wife was Sarah Miller, with the source given as "Records of Mrs. Edmund Dunn" (a granddaughter of Andrew and Sarah Yeagley) [Hist. Lincoln Fam., 218]. Coming as it does from a granddaughter, this is good evidence for the maiden name of Andrew Yeagley's wife. This is supported by her husband's appearance among the heirs of the Miller estate [see the page of Agnes _____].

(2) Amwell tp., Hunterdon co., NJ, 5 April 1787, Andrew Yeagley, b. 17605, d. Fayette co., PA, 6 October 1832 7 November 1833.
