      MRS. SARAH THOMPSON, who is residing upon her farm on section 10, in Spring Valley Township, was born in Chautauqua County, N. Y., February 8, 1837, and is the daughter of Thomas and Percy (Baldwin) Curtis. Her father was born August 27, 1799, and her mother September 10, 1802, both in Vermont. Having joined the Latter Day Saints, her parents left New York in her infancy, and spent the summer at Kirtland, Ohio. From there they went to Missouri, and while on the road, her father died. Her mother went on to Far West, Missouri, and was there during the Mormon troubles at that place. From there they went to Lima, Ill., and finally to the City of Refuge, Nauvoo. In the meantime her mother married Edward Johnson.

      After the assassination of Joseph Smith, in 1814, the family started with the other members of the church for their unknown destination toward the Pacific Coast, but only went as far as Council Bluffs. From the latter village they went to St. Joseph, Mo. At the latter place the subject of this sketch was married to Henry Thompson, in February, 1853. From St. Joseph they moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, and later on to Warsaw, Ill., from which place, in 1860 they came to Preparation. Here and in the vicinity' she has made her home ever since. By her marriage Mrs. Thompson had four childrenó Francis L., Alice B., Henriettie, and Traverse C. During the War Mr. Thompson enlisted in the army, and like so many others who went to the front, never returned.

      In 1865, Mrs. Thompson was again married, this time to Miles Outhouse, and is the mother of four childrenó Edward C, David G., Ernest R, and Sarah K. All but two of the family are members of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
