In 1900, Sarah J. Peoples, daughter and widow, was a daughter living with John A and Margaret Carroll in Precinct 14 Ewell's, Dale, Alabama.  The family consisted of: John A Carroll, a 46 year old farmer b. Aug 1854; Margaret Carroll, wife 49 b. Jan 1851; daughter Sophronia Carroll, 18 b. May 1882; son James Carroll, 15 b. July 1883; daughter Minnie Carroll, 9 b. Jan 1891; daughter Sarah Peoples, a widow, 22 b. Oct 1878; granddaughter Effie Peoples, 2 b. Sept 1898; grandson Lennie Peoples, 1 b. Nov 1899. All were born in Alabama except Lennie, who was born in Georgia, as were Margaret's parents.  John and Margaret have been married for 26 years, and Margaret has had 19 children, 6 of whom are living. Sarah has had 4 children, all of whom are living.("United States Census, 1900," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M988-DZ4 : accessed 12 May 2016), Sarah Peoples in household of John A Carroll, Precinct 14 Ewell's, Dale, Alabama, United States; citing ED 70, sheet 8B, family 149, NARA microfilm publication T623 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,240,013.)

I don't believe that Sarah was a widow.  See the 1910 US Census and 1920 US Census, below.

George Peoples married S.F. Carroll on 20 April 1893 in Dale County, Alabama.("Alabama Marriages, 1816-1957," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:V5Z3-Y1P : accessed 12 May 2016), George Peoples and S. F. Carroll, 20 Apr 1893; citing reference ; FHL microfilm 1294502 V. B-E.)

In 1880, Sarah F. Carroll lived with John and Margret Carroll and two siblings in Skipperville, Dale, Alabama.  The family included: John Carroll, a 25 year old farmer; wife Margret Carroll, 29; son Bengmon D Carroll, 6; daughter Sarah F Carroll, 4; son John Carroll, 0-5/12. All were born in Alabama except Margret, who was born in Georgia.  The children's parents were all born in Alabama.  Margret's parents were born in Georgia.("United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M4JD-PGB : accessed 12 May 2016), John Carroll, Skipperville, Dale, Alabama, United States; citing enumeration district ED 65, sheet 653B, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0010; FHL microfilm 1,254,010.)

In 1910, G R Peoples (sometimes indexed as Peagler), a farmer, lived at Dundee & Campbelton Road, Tate School House, Geneva, Alabama, with his wife Sarah, 7 children, and mother Mary Peoples.  The family included: G. R. Peagler, 36; wife Sallie Peoples, 34; William Peoples, 14; Jesse Peoples, 12; Joseph Peoples, 8; Effie Peoples, 10; Mary Peoples, 6; Zennaman Peoples, 4; Wesley Peoples, 2; mother Mary Peoples, 72. All were born in Alabama, as were their parents. G.R. and Sarah have been married for 17 years, and Sarah has had 9 children, 7 of whom are living.("United States Census, 1910," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MKQV-GFX : accessed 12 May 2016), Sallie Peoples in household of G R Peoples, Tate School House, Geneva, Alabama, United States; citing enumeration district (ED) ED 100, sheet 8B, NARA microfilm publication T624 (Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,374,027.This family fits with George and Sarah shown as having 4 living children in 1900.

In 1920, George R. Peoples, 48, and his wife Sarah Francis Peoples, 44, lived on Hazel Street, Macon Ward 4, Bibb, Georgia, with a very large extended family.("United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MJ8C-QR7 : accessed 12 May 2016), Sarah Francis Peoples in household of George R Peoples, Macon Ward 4, Bibb, Georgia, United States; citing ED 43, sheet 9B, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,820,235.)

The records of the Stephens Funeral Home, Upson County, Georgia, show that George Riley Peples was buried on 18 April 1931, and Sarah J. Peoples on 13 Sept 1935.(Accessed at US GenWeb Archives, (http://files.usgwarchives.net/ga/upson/vitals/deaths/stephens.txt) contributed for use in the US GenWeb Archives by Lisa Graham.
