Sarah Bryant

Born in Binghamton, New York to a disabled veteran of the war of 1812, Sarah was one of 6 children and at least 5 step-children. The family moved to Ohio when she was about 5 years old. They seemed to spend a lot of her childhood living in the care of friends and depending on the next payment from pension. Around the age of 6 her father died. Her mother raised her with the help of the older children and remarried when Sarah was about 14. They moved to Pennsylvania where Sarah married stagecoach driver Rufus Dodge and the couple returned to Ohio. They had 3 daughters and raised them in North Ridgeville, Ohio; always sticking close to Sarah's family. Sarah died in 1897 around the age of 67.
