Augusta was born in Augusta, Maine. Her mother died when she was very young. Her father Reuben Sawtelle brought her to Keithsburg on a River Boat and left her with the John Day family. Augusta married Oliver Mays on April 4, 1861. Her father Reuben Sawtelle signed for her when she married Oliver. Oliver died in 1870 leaving Augusta with five small children. Finding it impossible to raise all of the children, she allowed neighbors to adopt four of the children. She did keep in touch with the children and the families who raised her children. Augusta is buried next to Oliver.
