Birth: Sep. 14, 1811
Rappahannock County
Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 4, 1870
Hardin County
Kentucky, USA

Sarah was the daughter of John Dabney Strother, Jr. and Helen Piper Strother of "Wadefield", Rappahannock [now Culpeper], Virginia. She married Thomas Barbour, son of Supreme Court Justice, Philip Pendleton Barbour, on April 12, 1832 in Culpeper County, Virginia.

Her husband was a physician and professor of medicine and they moved frequently -- to Pulaski, Tennessee; LaGrange, Alabama; and St. Louis, Missouri. In 1849, her husband died of Cholera and she moved to Audrain County, Missouri and then, after the Civil War, to Hardin County, Kentucky where she died just a few days before her 59th birthday.

Sarah was brought from Kentucky to Bellefontaine Cemetery in St. Louis, MO to be buried with her husband and her daughter Helen Adele. At the time of her interment on September 7, 1870 her son Thomas Chalmers Barbour and her grandson John Gamble Barbour and granddaughter, Sarah Catherine Barbour (Children of Thomas P. Barbour and Jane Rogers Gamble Barbour) were re-interred with her. There is no marker on her grave.

She was the mother of seven children but only three survived her.

Your great-great granddaughter knows how brave and perservering you were -- especially given the times of your life.
