After the passing from William W. Winchester, Sarah moved from New Haven, CT to an 8 bedroom farmhouse in San Jose, CA. She had become convinced that the spirits of every person killed by her late husbands rifle was out for revenge. Most people know about the numerous seances that Sarah held in the Winchester house to define the ever evolving construction of her home. Her need for the number 13 in every aspect was taken to her grave. Sarah's other most beloved person was her daughter, Annie, that passed 40 days after birth of marasmus.
