Although Sarah F. Quattlebaum dies in 1842, her estate is not settled until 1857.

A petition to sell the slaves belonging to Sarah shows all of her children and where they were living. A further understanding can be gained from the Estate papers Elizabeth Wilkins. The two documents clearly show that this Sarah was the wife of George Washington Quattlebaum, her middle name was Faralise, and that Elizabeth Stedman had "deeded" over to her some slaves in 1840, along with other interesting tid bits of information. The relationship between Elizabeth Stedman Wilkins and Sarah Faralise Quattlebaum has yet to be established.

The petition to sell the slaves of Sarah F. Quattlebaum (wife of George Quattlebaum) dated Nov. 14, 1857 states that she has seven heirs and lists (Note: the papers for Elizabeth Wilkins clearly show these seven children as "bodily heirs" and therefore these seven children were born to Sarah F. and not to Mary Sealy/Shealy, first wife of George Quattlebaum).

1. William W. Quattlebum, who lives in Talladega Co., Ala.
2. Elizabeth Bishop, the wife of Benj. Bishop who with her husband resides in Chambers Co., Ala.
3. Mary Ann Allen, the wife of William Allen, who with her husband lives in Chambers Co., Ala.
4. Andrew J. Quattlebum who lives in Benton Co., Ala.
5. Sarah Ann Bishop wife of Jefferson Bishop who lives in Tallapoosa Co., Ala.
6. Oliver O. Quattlebum who lives in Chambers Co., Ala.
7. Margaret Ann Quattlebaum, who is a minor living with her brother in law & sister, Jefferson Bishop in Tallapoosa Co..

Estate is administered by Philip Quattlebaum, her "step son" (born to her husband, George and his first wife Mary Sealy/Shealy). Only the children born to George and his second wife Sarah are listed as Sarah's heirs. One document clearly identifies Margaret Ann Quattlebaum as a duaghter of Sarah Quattlebaum, deceased.

Grave is possibly one of two large brick box tombs in the over grown cemetery with no identification.
Sarah's grave would no doubt have been the first grave in the newly organized Double Springs Church Cemetery.
