In this one disaster in which thirteen were killed including Will and his brother, Joseph Evans, I saw tragedy and felt it. I resolved never again to have anything to do with mining life.”
Seven and a half years later Sarah Jane married again and had 5 more children. During her years alone, she supported her family by washing clothes for families and sewing. I’ll share more about that in another post :). My heart hurt for her when I read what she went through. I can’t imagine how she felt when she identified her husband by his knitted sock. It makes me so grateful for what I have, especially for my family. She was obviously a tough woman to go through all that she did.
