Death Certificate

History of Sarah Anderson
3rd Great Grandmother of Halley David Allred

Birth: 4 Dec 1828
Place: Murfreesboro, Tennessee
Married: Willson Gates Nowers, 23 Jun, 1855
Death: 17 May 1922, Beaver, Utah
Parents: Miles Anderson and Nancy Pace

Sarah, "Sally", was 12 years old when her parents met the Latter-day Saint missionaries in Tennessee and were baptized in 1836. They left for Nauvoo in the spring of 1842. Sally was baptized at Nauvoo, by her father, in the Mississippi River in 1845.

Soon after her baptism the family was expelled from Nauvoo with the rest of the Saints. The family traveled to Kanesville, Iowa where Sally met Willson Gates Nowers, a convert from Kent, England. Sally and Willson were in the same company traveling across the plains and became well acquainted, however fate separated them for four years.

Sally and her family arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1851 and traveled on to Parowan, where they settled. Willson remained in Salt Lake until he was advised to go to Parowan. Sally's history states that Willson went to Parowan in 1853, where they met again. They were married two years later in 1855. He was twenty-seven, she was twenty-six.

Their first child, Willson Edward, was born in Parowan in 1856. A year later Willson was called to begin a settlement in Beaver. Sally was expecting a second child when the call came. She gave birth to their little girl, Nancy Kathleen, in the spring of 1857 the first white child to be born in Beaver. Because the streets in Beaver were re-aligned, the little log home where Nancy Kathleen was born ended up in the middle of Main Street, so it no longer exists.

Of the eight children Sally bore, five lived to maturity. Willson Edward died when he was just four years old. Tragedy and sorrow struck again when she lost her two youngest children: Joseph, just eight days old, then Edward Lorenzo, nearly three, only one year later.

Sally was a very systematic, good manager. She was loved and highly respected by her family, friends and acquaintances.
