Sarah Ann Thompson, wife of James Gale, was born in Norfolk England. She had traveled to Snowflake Arizona to see George. Father and Annie went with her---they left April 26th. George met them in Rice with team and wagon and took them on from there. Sarah had made a point of taking her burial clothing with her. Her daughter, Carrie Mae Gale Wilkins recorded that she had helped her mother finish her apron before she left. Upon leaving Sarah made a point of kissing everyone and saying "goodbye". Her children adored her and the lasting tribute at the base of her head stone reads as follows: "A mother thou has been to us, All honor to thy name. The Gospel Plan thou taught us, that salvation we may gain." On August 21, 1931, seventeen years after her mother passed away, Carrie recorded her first visit to the grave site, saying. "It was such a consolation to me, she always seemed so far away, and now to be near the spot where she was lying I surely appreciated it."

Sarah Ann Thompson, wife of James Gale, was born in Norfolk England to her parents William Thompson and Ann Mariah Fellows.

Sarah's parents joined the church in England and moved to the Utah territory and settled in Beaver.

She married James Gale in Beaver on the 5th of March 1868 and in November got recommends to go to the Endowment house in Salt Lake City, Utah to be sealed on the 8th of December 1868 along with James 2nd wife Elizabeth Ann Moyes. With one yoke of cattle they made the trip in eight days of 220 miles.

In the Spring of 1873 she entered into the United Order in Beaver, Utah and shared all they previously owned with their neighbors.

On the 12th of November 1877 she & James left Beaver, Utah for Arizona with William Flake's family. Her wagon was loaded with all their possessions and her 4 children. They arrived in Sunset Camp by New Years Day 1878.

Within a few months the Stinson Ranch was purchased and they moved to what became Snowflake, Arizona.

She moved her family to Franklin, AZ and on to the Colonies in Mexico until it was safe to return.

Needing to be seen by a doctor in Snowflake, Arizona she went with her husband and Annie. They left April 26th.

George Gale met them in Rice with team and wagon and took them on from there. Sarah had made a point of taking her burial clothing with her. Her daughter, Carrie Mae Gale Wilkins recorded that she had helped her mother finish her apron before she left.

Upon leaving Sarah made a point of kissing everyone and saying "goodbye". Her children adored her and the lasting tribute at the base of her head stone reads as follows:

"A mother thou has been to us, All honor to thy name. The Gospel Plan thou taught us, that salvation we may gain."

Sarah died after her operation and was buried in the Kartchner family plot in Snowflake, Arizona. Her husband James Gale and his 2nd wife Elizabeth continued to live in Franklin, Arizona.

Sarah knew the Lord and accepted every challenge given to her no matter how difficult it was to accept. She lived her beliefs and welcomes all to do the same.
