About Sarah Lewis

Biographical Summary:

Sarah Wilde (1843-1876) was born in Southampton, Hampshire, England to Henry Brown Wilde and Sarah (Hewlett) Wilde. She was christened in St. Mary Parish, Southampton, Hampshire, England 3 Dec 1843.

Sarah joined the LDS Church in 1849 and came to America in 1851 with her parents, settling in Coalville, Summit, Utah.

She married John Staley, son of Conrad Staley and Hannah Elizabeth (Johnson) Huffman Wheaton Staley, 7 Dec 1862 in Coalville. They had 5 children.

After John Staley died, Sarah became a plural wife of John Moss Lewis, son of Benjamin Franklin Lewis and Joannah (Ryon) Lewis. They were married in the Salt Lake Endowment House 2 Jun 1873. They had one child, but Sarah Wilde Staley Lewis died about 2 years afterward.

There is conflicting stories on where Sarah died. A history of John Moss Lewis says that she died on the way to Arizona with her new husband and his families. My family records say that she died in Coalville. Anyhow, we do know that she was buried in Coalville 14 Nov 1876 at the age of 33.
