Sarah Ada Adair Mangum was the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Adair and Rebecca Brown. She was born in Pickensville (or possibly Tuscaloosa County), Alabama. She was married to William Mangum in Pickensville, Alabama. They were married sometime "about 1833."
She bore him six children: Armelia Caroline (b. March 21, 1834), Thomas Jefferson (b. December 8, 1835), Sarah Frances (b. September 11, 1838), Cyrus Franklin (b. September 29, 1840), William Young (b. October 5, 1845), and Marinda Elizabeth (b October 7, 1850).
She died on the Loup Fork river crossing in Nebraska and was buried there on the Mormon Trail while crossing the Great Plains. Her husband had no wood to construct a coffin, so he wrapped her body in tree bark and buried her in an unmarked grave alongside the trail. He then covered it with brush and rocks to protect it from animals.
