Sadie Marries James Fletcher Hepworth 1882

It's now late in the year of 1882.  Sarah Ann is married to A.P. Herman Vogel who works at the Brewery in Salt Lake.  Sarah Ann's son Fred is ten years old soon to turn eleven and is going to Hammond Boarding School.  
 Where has Sadie been in the last few years I don't know? 
 But, the rest of her life begins now with the marriage to James Fletcher Hepworth.  James is the son of Thomas and Mary Fletcher Hepworth who owns and operates one of the butcher’s shops in Salt Lake. 
 He was born on 7 May, 1857 
the fifth child of thirteen.  (Sadie is the fifth child of nine.) 
 James is twenty five years old and Sadie is eighteen when they marry 
on 30 November 1882.

Grandma, so was Daniel S. Tuttle an LDS bishop? Was Sarah Ann a member of the church who married outside or was she never a member?


Glad you asked that question Maddi. Mr. Tuttle is a Bishop in the Episcopal relgion but, they were NOT married in the Episcopal Church but at the home of the Hepworth's. Sadie (Sarah Ann)is a member of the LDS Church I'm not sure if James is a baptized member. James's parents Thomas and Mary Hepworth joined the Mormon Church in England and were Mormon pioneers who crossed the plains to SLC in 1852 three years before Sadie's family entered the SL valley. James's mother Mary at some point left the church for some reason I don't know. The Episcopal church is similar to the Church of England which is Mary's former religion. I'm thinking to appease Mary,they agreed to be married by the 'E' Bishop. Sadie and James raised their children in the Mormon Church. When I get finished blogging about the Kidgell family next will be the Hepworths.
