Birth: 1854

Death: May 16, 1870

Texas, USA

Sarah Lucinda Williams was born in the Woods community of Panola County, Texas, and named for her Cherokee grandmother, Sarah Lucinda Issacs Williams. She was young when she married James Wooten Keating, a veteran of the Civil War. Sarah's father was deceased and the young couple lived next to the household of her widowed mother. When Sarah's baby, a boy, arrived, they named him William Savage Keating. Sarah was never well after the birth of her baby and died a few months later. She was laid to rest in the family burial ground on the Taylor Plantation of her grandparents, near the grave of her father. Sarah's mother helped care for the baby, "little Willie" as he was called, until his father remarried. The second wife, Nancy Helen Bridwell, had been a friend of Sarah's and had even attended the wedding of Willie's parents. Nancy loved and cared for her little stepson, the son of her friend, as though he were her own. She made sure Willie knew how special his birth mother, Sarah, had been.
