Today is my husband’s birthday. But, it is also his 3rd great grandmother’s birthday, Sarah A. “Sallie” Fowler. So, she is this week’s blog entry for the 52 Ancestors challenge.
Sarah was born on July 27th, 1837 in Alabama to Lewis Fowler and Lucinda Perkins. However, the family had moved and the Fowler family was living in Union Parish, Lousiana in 1850. They later moved to nearby Jackson Parish in Louisiana, sometime before 1860.
Around 1855, Sarah married Martin Abraham Tullos. They were living in Jackson Paris in 1860, near her parents, and had 3 children of their own: John Abraham, William Lewis, and Malinda.
Martin joined the Confederate Army during the Civil War, and I have not been able to find out anything more about him after 1862. So, it is unknown if her died during the Civil War or not. But, he was clearly out of the picture in Sarah’s life. Sometime around 1864, she married Greenbury Sanders, and had 5 more children: Lenora, Robert, Leroy, Leon, and Charles. The family moved to Comanche County. Texas before 1880.
Sarah died on September 13, 1900 in Comanche, Texas. She is buried in the Zion Hill Cemetery in Comanche, Texas.
