Sarah Ann Stainfield was born in 1855 in Tutbury, Staffordshire, England.

Frank and Sarah only had two children. This was likely due to Sarah's poor health. Sarah suffered from phthisis, more commonly called consumption at that time - what is known today as tuberculosis. Cramped living conditions, inadequate nutrition and poor air quality from living in the industrialized city of Boston probably contributed to Sarah's failing health. Fanny most likely cared for her sick mother, and younger sister, Martha, while Frank worked as a coal merchants labourer. Just before Christmas on December 16, 1890, Sarah finally succumbed to the disease that was wasting away her body. She died at the age of 34 years from phthisis pneumonalis and exhaustion .[1]
