"[Sara] was the daughter of an Ohio farmer, who, with his wife, was narrowly religious. Her schooling was of the most rudimentary character, and even reading, outside of church books, was discouraged."[1]. She was probably born about 1850 (assuming a marriage age of about 20). She married Adolph M. Weiss between 1869 and 1871. Mr. Weiss worked with the United States Express Company in St. Louis, Mo. Sara died in 1904, and the 2nd edition of "Journey to the Planet Mars", published in 1905, lists the copyright holder as "Adolph M. Weiss", i.e. her husband.
