A Tribute to My 2nd Great Grandmother Sarah Catherine Barr Tuttle

Josiah and Sarah Tuttle

Josiah and Sarah Tuttle joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on 2 April 1891 in Stokes County, North Carolina--their home. Just a few days later they and their four daughters boarded a train bound for Utah. 

From their oldest daughter, Hattie's history we read, "Well, there she comes chuggin’ along. The trains did not go so fast them days. Well, we said good-bye to everyone. Father had many good friends there and did Mother. Poor old dear Grandmother and Grandpa, we left them crying their eyes out, because they knew that would be the last time they would ever see us again. Well, we all got off about 3 o’clock and of course we thought it was just fine, but oh, we sure did get tired."

Depicted in this video is what they would have seen from their train window as they left North Carolina.

As a tribute to my Grandma, I have put together the following video of Sarah, her husband, Josiah and their children.
