Sarah Jacoby Abraham, wife of Morris Abraham, was born in Russia (modern Belarus), and arrived via a couple of years in England in 1875, with a young daughter and infant son. Eventually, the brood included 10 children: Dena, David, Peyser, Samuel, Eva, Ida, Rosa, Aaron, Daisy, and Annie.

The original family name was Abrahams (plural). Sometime after 1880, Morris and Sarah began using the shorter "Abrams", while their eldest three children kept the Abraham name. Even though Sarah's death certificate reads Abrams, she was buried under the name Abraham.

Morris is buried in the adjoining Chevra Thilim Cemetery.
