In January 1913, Sarah was living at home with her parents in Mt. Carmel, Illinois.  Mt Carmel is situated on the Wabash River with Indiana being on the other side.  Across the river, Princeton, Indiana is the nearest Indiana "city" and also serves as the county seat.   Roy Otis Knowles arrived in the town by train, from Dallas Texas, to see to the affairs of his grandfather's funeral.  Roy was a newspaperman and a smooth talker.  Roy and Sarah met at a dance in Mt. Carmel in January of 1913. She was already engaged to another man at the time.  A whirlwind romance ensued that ended with Sarah and Roy marrying one month later on Feb 22, 1913 in Mt Carmel.
