Were it not for this needlepoint, lovingly made by her mother as a memorial, we would not know today that Sarah ever lived. The second of Absalom and Nancy's five children, Sarah was named for one of her mother's older sisters. In the many papers we have discovered so far, her name is mentioned only once, in a letter written by Mabel Row Wakeman. Sarah is almost without a doubt buried in one of the unmarked graves of Greenfield, laid to rest near her parents. Many thanks to cousin Linda for preserving this piece of our history.
