Father: James W Hair who died in the Civil War. Two of her brothers also lived in here. Judson James Hair married Martha White. and Christopher C. Hair/Hare married Molly Norris. Christopher was living with Sarah in the 1870 Cen. here in Farmerville Union Parish La. J.J. Hair moved to Texas by 1880 & Christopher family by 1900.
Per the memories of her mother by; Elinor Dee Turnage Sinclair.
Sarah was born Barnwell Co SC she had 5 brohters and only 2 of the younger ones came south with her. She had no sisters. Her parents move to Drew co Ark just before the War. One brother was killed by being thrown from a horse and 2 were killed in the C.War.
In Appearance, mother was of medium size - a little on the plump side, and always apparently, in goood health in spite of the hard work she had caring for a large family. The picture does not do her justice as I remember her always smiling and jolly. She never punished her children, but always ruled by kindness and talking about to them about the way they should live. Mother used to sing all day while going about her daily task. Her favourite hyme was " How Tedious & Tasteless the Hours"
This is a few excerpts out of her daughters memories.
