Sarah was born in 1873. She is the daughter of Elvis Brizendine and Emeline Clark. [1]

From a newspaper clipping found in her sister's Bible: Sni Mills Another marriage. Who now? Why Mr. John Shepherd and Miss Sarah Brizendine. On last Thursday the 8th inst., the handsome couple drove to the home of Dr. Horn and dismounted from their neat buggy, tied up their steeds, and marched in. The NOT [sic] was soon tied and the cheerful party were made happy as man and wife the remainder of life. Only a few attendants accompanied the bride and groom to their rural home, among whom we mention the right gallant Mr. Finley, Miss Hammon and Miss Mary Alley, the accomplished school marm. Mr. Finley behaved with becoming dignity as he drove off, with cigar in mouth, reins in hand, and sweet-heat [sic] on either side.
