Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 19, 1844, Portugal
Death: Nov. 29, 1934
Westchester County
New York, USA

Sarah's father (Abraham Rencher) was a staunch Confederate supporter. At the end of his appointed term (1861) in New Mexico, he was delayed in returning to his home in North Carolina by President Abraham Lincoln because of his Confederate sympathies.

In 1866 Sarah married Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General Allen Latham Anderson. He was the son of Charles Anderson, a one time governor of Ohio, and a most loyal Union sympathizer.

Latham and Sarah had one daughter, Mary Louisa. She was born in 1870.

Part of the will of Latham's father states that Latham and his family are living in North Carolina in 1895.

Sarah is mentioned in several newspaper articles as living with her parents in Pittsboro, NC. through the 1880's. Daughter Mary Louisa attended Chapel Hill University in the late 1890's.

Lawsuits between Allen Latham Anderson and the brother of Sarah, William Rencher show up around this same time.

1905 Census for Manhattan show Latham, Sarah, and their daughter Mary L living at 438 W. 116th st. in Manhattan

Sarah and Mary lived on Park Avenue in Manhattan in 1920

Sarah died in 1934 in Westchester County at the age of 90.

Her remains were cremated and shipped to North Carolina to be interred in the family plot.
