Sarah Meglone of Paris KY

Sarah Meglone was the daughter of Lewis Meglone and Susie Cromwell of Paris.

She appeared on the honor roll for grammar school in 1906 (fifth grade), 1908 for sixth, and in 1909 and 1910 for seventh and eighth grade, right alongside her brother Lewis.

Sarah was apparently a librarian in Paris, KY, according to this report in the Lexington Herald of 10 August 1916:
"LIBRARY CLOSES WHILE LIBRARIANS TAKE VACATION.
PARIS, Ky., Aug. 9-- The Paris public library will close after the regular hours Saturday and remain closed for two weeks while the librarians, Miss Imogene Redmon and assistant librarian Miss Sarah Meglone, are on their vacation. All books that have a return date of August 12 or before will have to be in on that date or the persons having them out will be charged for every day during the vacation."

Her obituary appeared in the Lexington Herald-Leader, 22 Nov 1990:
"PARIS-- Sarah Meglone, 94, of 121 Woodmont Drive, a retired Kentucky Utilities Co. employee, died Tuesday at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Cynthiana. Services 10 a.m. Saturday at Hinton-Turner Funeral Home. Visitation 4 to 8 p.m. Friday."
