Sarah E. "Sally" Jarvis (1821-1861)
Married: 10 Mar 1834 in Sangamon County, Illinois
Divorced: 13 Nov 1839
Susan Clary b. 1838

Royal Armstrong Clary was represented by David A. Rutledge, the brother of Anne Rutledge. Abraham Lincoln courted Anne Rutledge.

The headstone for Sally Jarvis Clary probably has the wrong age at the time of death because her divorce from Royal Armstrong Clary is well documented, and it's highly unlikely that she was only 4 years old at the time.

ROYAL A. CLARY, aged ---, born in Sparta, White county, Tennessee, married, farmer; enlisted from Petersburg, Ill., was wounded at the battle of Perryville, Ky., October 8, 1862, and was discharged for disability, but no date appears on the record. Died at Petersburg, Ill., in about 1896.

Company E was the Menard county company and was enrolled by Pleasant S. Scott, of Petersburg, under date of July 17, 1862. In this county were many people who had emigrated from Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. These people were hardy, patriotic and brave, and most of them were strongly opposed to slavery. And these pioneers and their sons were prompt to respond to the call of the President for additional troops.

At the organization of the company the following commissioned officers were elected: Pleasant S. Scott, captain; Joseph M. Plunkett, first lieutenant, and Abraham Clary, second lieutenant. At the organization of the regiment this company became the color company.
The record shows that the company had 3 killed in battle, 5 died of wounds, 2 were accidentally killed, 12 died of disease, 18 were discharged for disability, 13 were wounded who lived to be discharged from the service. Of the 81 officers and men who formed the original company but 21 went home together at the close of the war. Not so strong in numbers as some of the others, nevertheless this company made a record of which all its members should be proud.
