Contributor: BarbaraLeishman Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Sarah Lucinda Lake was born May 5, 1861 in Harrisville, Utah. She married Ransom Carlos Van Leuven on October 30, 1879 in Clifton, Idaho. (Ransom was a brother to William Elloiott Van Leuven, who married Sarah's sister Julia, so two sisters married two brothers.) They made their home in Clifton, Idaho until 1890 when they moved to Lewiston, Utah. Thirteen years later they returned to Clifton. They were the parents of nine children: Nellie Van Leuven Kent of Los Angeles; Etta Van Leuven Henderson of Blackfoot; Ethel Van Leuven Henderson of Los Angeles; Lois Van Leuven Dustin of Gridley, California; Alta Van Leuven Henderson of Bliss, Idaho; Ransom Carlos Van Leuven Jr. of Clifton; Marvin George Van Leuven of Clifton; Verna Van Leuven Waite, of Gooding, Idaho; and Herbert Van Leuven. Both Sarah and Ransom served in the LDS Church. Ransom served as a missionary to the southern states from 1888-1890. In 1939 they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary, the oldest married couple living in Clifton. At that time both were active physically and mentally. Sarah took pride in her hobbies of quilt-making, all kinds of needlework, and in keeping up her home. In 1939 they had 8 living children, 28 grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren. Sarah died in Clifton, Idaho on April 14, 1940 and is buried in Dayton, Idaho.

Life timeline of Sarah L. Van Leuven

Sarah L. Van Leuven was born on 3 May 1861
Sarah L. Van Leuven was 14 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
Sarah L. Van Leuven was 22 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
Sarah L. Van Leuven was 35 years old when George VI of the United Kingdom (d. 1952) George VI was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth from 11 December 1936 until his death in 1952. He was the last Emperor of India and the first Head of the Commonwealth.
Sarah L. Van Leuven was 43 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Sarah L. Van Leuven was 53 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.

Van Leuven was 69 years old when The New York Stock Exchange crashes in what will be called the Crash of '29 or "Black Tuesday", ending the Great Bull Market of the 1920s and beginning the Great Depression.

A fifth trading room, located at 30 Broad Street, was closed in February 2007. The main building and the 11 Wall Street building were designated National Historic Landmarks in 1978.

Van Leuven was 70 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
