Early life


After their mother's death in 1818, Sarah was in charge of taking care of the house while their father Thomas went off to look for a wife.

In August 1826, Sarah Lincoln married Aaron Grigsby (1801–1831). She died on January 20, 1828, while giving birth to a boy, who also died that day. Her brother, Abraham, blamed the death of his sister on the failure of the Grigsbys to send for a doctor.
