Sarah Ann Ashcraft Campbell
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1834
Gloucester County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Mar. 5, 1868
Trenton
Mercer County
New Jersey, USA

Sarah was born in Franklin Twp. (in or near Glassboro), Gloucester Co., NJ, the daughter of William B. and Louisa (Ledden) Ashcraft. Census records indicate that she was born about 1832, though her birth year is given as 1834 on the monument. Her parents moved to the Southwark Ward of Philadelphia, PA, by 1840, where her father was a tavern keeper. She married David M. Campbell on 2 June 1851 in Philadelphia.

Sarah died from suffocation after taking medication prescribed for a goiter. She left behind five young children and her husband, who never remarried. She was buried first in Mercer Cemetery, Trenton. In 1907, her (and her mother's) remains were relocated to her husband's plot in Riverview Cemetery following her husband's death.

According to family tradition, an oil portrait of Sarah was rolled up and put in the casket of a daughter-in-law (d. 1938), who never knew her but had left instructions for this to be done as an act of spite toward the Campbell family.
