This house is no longer standing but was located on a heavily wooded country road near Noel, Missouri. They had no running water, only a cistern in the yard, however, her mother feared her family would contact typhoid fever so she pulled a little red wagon down that country road to a neighbor's house to bring milk cans of water home for her family to drink. Sarah often recalls sitting on the cover of that old cistern and peering off into the woods dreaming of a brighter future.
