Wife of the Dr. Nathaniel Smith. Sarah was his second wife, and she was the step-mother of the children born to his first wife.
In 1844, Mrs. Smith found in her barn in South Creek, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, four runaway slaves who had walked 300 miles in their escape of slavery. For one week, Mrs. Smith brought them food morning and evening as they recovered from their journey. One of those runaway slaves was John W. Jones.
Fresh flowers appeared on Mrs. Smith's grave regularly until John Jones died.
