Lissie Cagle, 11/95, said in a letter that Sarah came from Louisiana. Her father had slaves that he set free before the Civil War.
When Sarah was young she and her mother were walking across a field toward a road when the Confederate army was maching by. They sent Sarah and her back to the house. Then they sent her father back also and they shot him in the back. Sarah's brothers hid out and would not fight for the South or against it.
Dora Guilfoyle was at home when Sarah Ann came to borrow her sister Jane's "best riding-skirt" to get married in. (Jane gave it to her.) Sarah Ann's youngest sister, Tena Bunch, rode with them to the minister's - Thos. B. Park - and when they found he was out surveying, they rode to where he was at work. There he married Sarah Ann and Tom as they sat on their horses, and wrote in, on their certificate, that the place of marriage was "on the praire" n.e. of Lowry City. Their granddaughter Manila James has the certificate.
