  • Notes 
    • She was born on 29 May 1839, at Winsham, Somerset, England to Absalom La n gford and Mary Ann Seward. She married George Symonds Ostler on 10 Ju n e 1864 in Allington, England.

      She was a slender woman, and was soft-hearted and kind. She was also ra t her quiet and reserved. She was very much a home-body and a good homem ak er. One of her specialties was caraway cake. All the grandchildren l ove d it; another specialty was cottage cheese.

      She made quilts, and also made an extra one each year to give to the Rel i ef Society to sell at their Bazaars. This was quite a task as she ha d n o sewing machine and the quilt was made completely by hand.
      They ate about the same thing for breakfast each morning – side pork a n d usually left over potatoes from the supper the night before. They ra is ed their own pigs, sheep, cows, chickens, horses, and garden. They ra ise d beautiful squash and potatoes. They were very poor and lived mostl y o n what they could raise. They had chickens and would save all the eg gs t hey could so they could sell them. Nothing was ever wasted at thei r home .

      They farmed for a living. They had wheat, hay and corn. They had a hor s e and buggy. Her husband, George, always attended church. She went so me times, bat as was sometimes the case in those days, the husband went a n d the wife stayed home. She was a lovely lady and a great pioneer. S h e must have sacrificed much to leave her native land, England, and com e t o a new land to make a home. She was also a great tease. She like d to t ease her husband and grandchildren.
      Life was hard at best, and they worked hard to care for themselves. S h e had no schooling. The men or boys were given first opportunity fo r a n education and even that was very limited. She could not read or wr ite . Marvel, the granddaughter who was raised by them, would read book s t o her. Just before she died, she learned to write her name. She wa s hea lthy most of her life up until about the last two years when she ha d a st roke.
