Lucy Sara Miller Chenoweth
Birth: Sep. 23, 1879
Saint Joseph
Buchanan County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jan. 10, 1903
Saint Joseph
Buchanan County
Missouri, USA

Lucy Sara Miller was born in 1879 in St. Joseph, Missouri, daughter of John Miller (Johann Meuller) and Mary E. O'Rourke, the fifth of their seven children and the younger of their two daughters. Her father died in St. Joseph when she was eight years old.

She married at 14 to Francis Otis Chenoweth. They had four daughters and a son. Her son died in 1901 at the age of two, and she died at 23 of what was then described as "lung fever" and is generally thought to have been either tuberculosis or pneumonia, when her four daughters ranged in age from nine months to seven years.

She was born to a poor family, had little at the time of her death, and was buried without a grave marker. The last known photograph of her was lost in Kansas City's 1951 flood. Descendants placed a new marker on her grave in 1980.
