Sarah Jane (Pike) Conger

Sarah Jane (Pike) Conger:

"Born in Painesville, Ohio July 24, 1843, Sarah Jane Pike was brought up in Galesburg, Illinois, the daughter of New England-born Edward Pike, a fruit tree dealer, and wife Laura Burridge. She attended Lombard College, graduating in 1863, and Bryant and Stratton Business College in 1864. She fell in love with Edwin Pike [sic, Hurd] Conger, a fellow student at Lombard (to which his parents were founding donors), waited for him to return from the Civil War, and married him in Galesburg on June 21, 1866."
