Biography

Sarah was born 19 June 1830 at Rodman, Jefferson, New York, the daughter of Josiah Wright and Sally Boynton. She married Levi Samson Weed 18 December 1852.

There do not appear to be many legal records documenting Sarah's life but she does appear regularly in the US Federal Census. By 1850 her mother had died and Sarah was 20 years old, living in Richland, Oswego, New York with her father Josiah Wright and her siblings Hollis, Harriet, Alvira, Laura, and Luther.[1]

In 1860 we find her still in Richland, Oswego but now she is living with her husband Levi Weed and their children Emma M. Weed, Oscar W. Weed, and Valmore B. Weed.[2] By 1870 there is one additional family member, daughter Laura (9 yrs old). Sarah's occupation now is listed as 'keeping house.'[3]

The family is still in Richland, Oswego in 1880. Levi is a farmer, and their son 'Wood Oscar' is a farm laborer. He probably reversed his first and middle names to avoid being confused with Oscar Wright, one of Sarah's brothers, who was also living with the family in 1880. Daughters Laura and Emma were still living with their parents as well.[4]

By 1900 Sarah and Levi have moved to Sandy Creek, Oswego, New York and are living alone.[5] In 1910 Sarah is a widow and living in Sandy Creek with her daughter Emma and Emma's husband Clare Sampon on their farm.[6]

Sarah Weed died 1 November 1911 at Oswego, New York.[7]
