Sarah Sturdevant Leavitt was born Sarah Sturdevant in 1799, in Lime, New Hampshire, the daughter of Lemuel Sturdevant and Priscilla Thompson.

Sarah wrote, "When I was 18 years old the Lord sent me a good husband (Jeremiah Leavitt II). We were married at my father's house, March 6, 1817, in the town of Barton, County of Orleans, State of Vermont."

After being influenced by her husband's sister, she read the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants. These confirmed her faith in the work. She said that she knew it was the word of God and as revelation from Heaven and received it as such. The next thing she felt was to gather with the Saints, but they did not have much means for such an undertaking. They left for Kirtland, Ohio, in July of 1837, a journey of 800 miles. Since Sarah had not the opportunity to be baptized earlier, upon arrival in Kirtland, she was baptized in the Chagrin River, that flows through and around the edge of the village. The river location (water backed-up behind a log dam) in which she and daughter Louisa were baptized had been often used to baptize such new converts as Dr. Willard Richards and many other notables.

Their money all spent by the time they arrived at this "first gathering place of the Saints," they stayed in the Kirtland/Mayfield, Ohio, area for more than a year while Jeremiah worked with his team to earn a living and prepared to follow the body of the Saints west. Finally they were able to resume their journey on to Nauvoo, Illinois, and the center of the Church.

The artist's wife Patreecia Leavitt Thomas, a second great granddaughter of Sarah Leavitt, was used as the model for this painting since there are no known photographs of Sarah's likeness. Six of Sarah's descendants were used in the painting, including former Governor Michael Leavitt, of Utah
