About Sarah Sheldon

The Other Grand Lady

Added by Truefactsearcher on 30 Mar 2009

Originally submitted by northernrustic to Skinner_Potts on 5 Mar 2007

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!
