Birth: 1835
Gettysburg
Adams County

Death: 1871
Spartansburg
Crawford County
Pennsylvania, USA

Sarah was the daughter of Benjamin and Maria Schriver of Adams County, PA. Her grandfather, John Schriver, and her uncle, Jacob C. Schriver, were German weavers of Adams County whose woven coverlets can still be found today. She married Edward Morgan Warren in May of 1853 in Gettysburg, PA. Her first child, Murray Heller Warren, was born in Gettysburg in 1854 when she was 19. Shortly before the outbreak of the Civil War the family moved to Knoxville, Illinois. At the age of 25 she watched as her husband joined the Union forces enlisting as a Corporal in Company A 59th Infantry on 17 Jul 1861. Around the end of 1862 or shortly after the start of 1863 she welcomed home her broken husband after he was discharged for wounds he received at the battle of Perryville, KY. That same year she also welcomed another child named Earnest into the world. In total she was the mother of seven known children. She suffered through the deaths of three of them (Clayton, Emma, and Frankie). She died at the age of 36 when her oldest son was only 17. A statue of a woman holding an anchor stands atop her headstone, no doubt to symbolize the strength and tenderness with which this woman anchored her family in life. She was deeply loved and still to this day dearly remembered.
