About Sarah Collins Gillette

"GILLETT ~ In this city, September 19, 1883, Sarah Collins Moore Gillett, relict of Horace Gillett, deceased. Born in Sullivan County, New York, July 5, 1805, where she resided until April, 1854, when, with her family, she came to Utah (her husband dying enroute), arriving at Salt Lake city on September 19 of the year, and since which she resided at her late home. She was the mother of two daughters and seven sons, the daughters and three of the sons surviving her. She was among the early converts to the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and never thereafter wavered in her perfect faith in them. Her life was that of the true Christian woman, wife, and mother, her whole aim being to do good in this world and receive the glorious reward hereafter that is vouchsafed the pure in heart and the just in action. Funeral from residence, corner of Fourth East and Fourth South streets, at 10 o'clock this morning." ("Salt Lake Herald", Utah, 20 Sept 1883 issue, p. 8)
