History -

"Sarah Ann's mother, Ann, met and fell in love with James Sanderson, a widower born in Lancaster, England. They were married 15 April 1857. The family lived in San Bernardino part of a year when persecution of the Mormons forced them to leave. In November 1857, they, with other Saints, began the long journey to Utah.

When en route, Ann was accidentally hurt, and being with child, her condition was grave. They had to let their company go on without them and they stopped in Las Vegas, New Mexico (now Nevada). That night, 25 December 1857, her baby girl was born, a month prematurely. They named her Sarah Ann.

They were camped near an Indian tribe. Ann hung the baby clothes out at night and in the morning they were gone. The second day the Indian chief and some of his braves came and wanted to see the baby.

She was held up for them to see and the chief asked, "How much?"

Grandfather Arnold jokingly said, "100 horses."

That afternoon, the white man in charge of the camp told them to leave in a hurry as the Indians had gone to gather 100 horses and would be back to demand the baby. So they packed and left early the following morning.

They traveled constantly to overtake the company they had dropped out of. Sarah Ann was only three days old, but her mother walked and carried her up the steep grades because the roads were so bad and too steep for the oxen to pull."
