Sarah Agnes LeBaron Hutchings, Biographical information relating to Mormon pioneer overland travel database, 2003-2017
My father, Alonzo Harrington LeBaron of French decent, was on a mission in England where he met my mother, Sarah Jeffs, and was married about 1849 or 1850, and came to New Orleans, State of Louisiana in the year 1851, where I was born 18 November 1851.
Father left mother and I with a gentleman's family while he came to Utah to make a home for us. The mother being ill and dying, leaving a baby about the same age as myself, my mother nursed both of us.
When my father had a home ready for us. Sent for mother and I to meet him in Salt Lake City, which we did in the year of about 1853.
I was too young to remember the crossing of the plains, so will tell you of it as my mother told me. When we were camped one night in a tent where there were plenty of wild hogs, one found his way into our tent took me by the shoulder and had drug me to the door, when my mother awoke and got me in time to keep the pig from carrying her little girl away and being devoured. So any person can imagine how thankful my mother was to our Heavenly Father for helping her save her baby's life. We had a very hard time getting to Salt Lake City.
