Currently living in central Arkansas & willing to take photos in nearby cemeteries. I have been working on my family tree since 2000. Family names I am searching for: Tomlinson, Welsh, Niver, (Del.,Wis.,N. Dakota, Calif. & N.Y.); Bell, Davis, Roper, Cooper (Ark., Tn., Ky)McPhail, Wemple, Cones (Kansas, Ohio, Missouri). Sorry, I wont list my email because I have gotten too much spam, etc. from this site.
She is buried in Nelson Cemetery,Georgetown, White, Arkansas. She was married to George Akers. There are notes on her record where you listed her parents and siblings, but I don't believe they are correct.
Sadora is in the 1880 census in Greenfield, Craighead, Arkansas with her father and mother and younger brother, John T. Her father was John W. Pesterfield, but not the one who married Mollie Madden. Pesterfield is a rare surname. These Pesterfields were originally from Germany and changed their surname sometime before 1800 in Virginia. Many of the descendants have the same given name and middle name. There are multiple John and James Pesterfield.
My sister and I have done Ancestry DNA and match to Sadora's descendant. Our ancestor was James Pesterfield, who was born in TN, married in OH and died in IL.
The other John W. Pesterfield in Arkansas is a descendant of David Pesterfield from TN. For whatever reason, we do not match DNA to David's descendants.
Sadora's great granddaughter's husband said that they have scarcely any info on her or her family as she died when her son, his wife's grandfather, Lee Akers was only a small child and his dad remarried and history was lost.
I believe that Sadora is named for Saidora Illinois, a town very close to where the Pesterfields lived in Bath Illinois on the Illinois river.
Sadora B Pesterfield I believe that Sadora is not the daughter of the John W. Pesterfield and his wife Mollie shown on this record. There were two John W. Pesterfields in Arkansas around the time of Sadora's birth. The 1880 census shows Sadora [transcribed as Ladora] as the daughter of the John W. Pesterfield born in Illinois, with a father born in Tennessee and a mother born in W Va. That matches my relative who was born in Ohio, but lived in Illinois. He was a civil war soldier and is listed in the 1880 Census in Arkansas. John W's father, James, was born in TN, and would be a distant relative to the father of the other John W. Pesterfield who was born in Texas and was the son of James H. Pesterfield born in TN as well.
I have DNA matches to Sadora's decendents. I have submitted an edit to remove the link to the other John W. Pesterfield and Mollie Madden. Would be happy to answer any questions. Thanks much, Diana Mann Goldenberg
