-Salt Lake Tribune, SEptember 2, 1944, transcribed by Rhonda Holton
Sarah Ellen Winterton was born the eldest child to William and Ellen (Nellie) Widdison Winterton on December 10, 1870, at Charleston, Utah.

She was a beautiful woman with dark brown hair. Her ready smile drew many to her. She had a pleasant alto singing voice, like her mother, who sang in the Nottingham choir in England.

In her hand writing, she tells of her childhood, living in a log cabin on the Jed Casper property in Charleston. Her father later homesteaded the property in upper Charleston and all the rest of her brothers and sisters were born and reared there. She states that she attended the district school in Charleston, probably in the old town hall. Her teachers were Lottie Murdock, better known as "Aunt Lottie Wright," J. R. Murdock, William C. Hanks and J. R. Terry. She tells how they emphasized sounding the "H" because her parents were English and often omitted that letter.

A song her mother often sang to her was, "My School Mates were all Changed to Men. They were all beloved by me. The teachers now in silence lie beneath the spreading tree. My village home, my village home, how dear thou art to me."

She further tells of going to dances once in a while and occasionally to a three-act play. There was always a lot of good home talent and neighbors often came to play in the evening. Her mother was interesting and loved by all. Yes, she had a happy home.

Her dear mother's health failed and when Sarah was only 18 years old, her mother died. When she died, it left the father with eight children, the baby only seven months old and Fred was two years, thus the load of cooking, caring, sewing and cleaning was left to Sarah and her sister Eliza.

She told of how when she and John were courting, she had taken the baby with them, which raised eyebrows, until they learned the story. Sarah married John H. Price February 22, 1893, in the Manti Temple. Seven children were born to them. Three of her children died in infancy with diphtheria, small pox and appendicitis. This brought much sadness into her life. Her children were: Heber Frederick, Nellie Ann, Montesse, Florence Ella, Earl W., Rula Lavina and Vernon Washington.

Sarah was a compassionate lady. Her life was spent helping and carrying food to neighbors and shut-ins. Each Decoration Day she placed a flower on nearly every grave in Charleston Cemetery.

An unfortunate fall on the icy road left her with an impairment of her speech. She died September 1, 1944. Her posterity is 21 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.
