Like Hester Ann (Kilpatrick) Potts, Sarah was widowed young with a large family and a farm to manage.
When her youngest daughter Caroline Emery died and Caroline's husband, John T. "Jock" Potts abandoned his family the raising of the two boys ( Arthur Michael and Robert Alvin) fell to Sarah. Sarah managed until the two wouldn't stay out of the lake, so they were shipped off to their other grandmother in Nebraska.
What a grand pair of ladies were Sarah (Royce) Sheldon and Hester Ann (Kilpatrick) Potts!
