  • Notes 
    • She was born on 29 May 1839, at Winsham, Somerset, England to Absalom Langford and Mary Ann Seward. She married George Symonds Ostler on 10 June 1864 in Allington, England.
      She was a slender woman, and was soft-hearted and kind. She was also rather quiet and reserved. She was very much a home-body and a good homemaker. One of her specialties was caraway cake. All the grandchildren loved it; another specialty was cottage cheese.
      She made quilts, and also made an extra one each year to give to the Relief Society to sell at their Bazaars. This was quite a task as she had no sewing machine and the quilt was made completely by hand.
      They ate about the same thing for breakfast each morning – side pork and usually left over potatoes from the supper the night before. They raised their own pigs, sheep, cows, chickens, horses, and garden. They raised beautiful squash and potatoes. They were very poor and lived mostly on what they could raise. They had chickens and would save all the eggs they could so they could sell them. Nothing was ever wasted at their home.
      They farmed for a living. They had wheat, hay and corn. They had a horse and buggy. Her husband, George, always attended church. She went sometimes, bat as was sometimes the case in those days, the husband went and the wife stayed home. She was a lovely lady and a great pioneer. She must have sacrificed much to leave her native land, England, and come to a new land to make a home. She was also a great tease. She liked to tease her husband and grandchildren.
      Life was hard at best, and they worked hard to care for themselves. She had no schooling. The men or boys were given first opportunity for an education and even that was very limited. She could not read or write. Marvel, the granddaughter who was raised by them, would read books to her. Just before she died, she learned to write her name. She was healthy most of her life up until about the last two years when she had a stroke.
