Sarah Littrell "Sallie" Powers Denney
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 21, 1819
Death: Apr., 1845
Wayne County
Kentucky, USA

Sarah was the daughter of Abigail Littrell and Daniel Powers, 1st wife of William Denney (1819-1903), mother of Louisa Jane Denney. When Juanita and Ben Coffee surveyed Pleasant Hill Cemetery in preparation for their well known book there apparently was a rock between the graves of Charles Powers and Abigail Littrell that bore no name and only one date ... April 21, 1819 ... a date that preceeded the establishment of the cemetery by over two decades. Since it is the exact date of birth for Sarah it is believed the rock marked the location of her grave. Later surveys have not mentioned the rock and it may have become illegible or have been removed. Because of the recording of the rock in the book by the Coffees it is believed that Sarah was buried between her parents. Later her husband married 2nd Sarah Pierce and they had 11 children. Louisa Jane Denney was reared by her grandmother, Abigail Littrell, and her aunt, Elizabeth Jane.
