Remembering Sarah Morse Borden
Remembering today: Sarah Anthony Morse Borden 1823-1863, first wife of Andrew J. Borden and mother of Emma Lenora, Alice Esther and Lizzie Andrew Borden. She was the sister of John Vinnicum Morse, born September 19, 1823 in Somerset, Massachusetts. Daughter of Anthony and Rhody (Morrison) Morse, she married Andrew on Christmas day, 1845. Sarah died in Fall River on March 26, 1863.
the 146 garment workers of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of March 25, 1911 on the 100th anniversary of the New York City disaster.
What did Sarah Borden die from at only around 40 years old?
“Uterine Congestion”- probably a cancer.
It is tragic that Sarah passed away at such a young age and never saw her daughters grow up. I truly believe that their lives would have been completely different if she had lived.
