This is a photograph of Sarah Ellen Sumpter Mosier taken at the "Little" Tom Pratt farm. She was born May 8, 1844, in Martinsville, Missouri, and died October 30, 1926. Sarah is buried at Studley Cemetery, Studley, Kansas. At age 15, Sarah married Franklin Allensworth on September 8, 1859, and, a year later, a daughter Lucinda was born. Sarah's marriage to Allensworth ended and she married Mr. Johnson. That marriage ended and she married John Henry Mosier in Sarpy County, Nebraska, in 1867. Four children were born to this union - Mary E., John D., Jacob Henry, and Elizabeth (who married Tom Pratt). John Henry Mosier died and Sarah married Morris Leek in July 1885. He died and she married her brother-in-law John Hart. Again, that marriage ended and Sarah married Royal Dimond in Sheridan County, Kansas on March 20, 1894. This marriage did not last and it is unclear if it was terminated or Mr. Dimond died.

Date: Between 1890 and 1900
