Death of Mrs. Anthony.

Mrs. Sarah A. Anthony, wife of Elihu Anthony, died this morning at the family home on School street. From the History of Santa Cruz County we learn: In 1845 at Fort Wayne, Indiana, Mr. Anthony married Sarah A. Van Anda who was of a Maryland family that moved to Ohio in 1831 and from there to Indiana. She came across the plains with her husband the trip taking six months when they reached Fort Hall just south of the Oregon line. They then joined a party of emigrants and first settled in the Santa Clara Valley where they remained three months.

In 1848 she arrived in Santa Cruz where she has since resided. She was a charter member of the Methodist church which was the first Protestant church organized in California.
