Sallie Susan Moyers was born (1875) in Limestone County, Alabama to Rufus Sherrill and Mary Frances Weir Moyers. Sallie's dad Rufus was a tanner by trade and the tannery he ran was located on Washington Street by the creek. Sallie's brothers, Whitten, Leonard (Lenny) and Sherrill helped their dad in the tannery and Sallie and her sisters, Clara and Alice carried water from the creek for them to use in the tannery. Later Mr. Moyers sold the tannery and moved his family to the Tanner community where the Moyers children all were very involved in the Tanner Methodist Church. This is where Sallie met her future husband, Samuel Marion Anderson as his family were members of the church and all the children from both families joined each other in many activities of the church.
After their marriage Sallie and Sam continued to play a big part in the activities of the Tanner United Methodist Church. Anytime someone in the community was in need of assistance, the Andersons always had an open door. Sallie Anderson had a group of ladies called the Little Shepards, these ladies assisted anyone in need of bedding or clothes or food. The ladies would meet at the home of Sallie Anderson for canning or sewing to meet the needs of these families.
Anytime there was a community event Sallie Anderson would sew or cook to help prepare for these events even though she was a very busy mom of 7 children, her youngest, Carl, was born in 1918 and died in 1920 but the remaining 6 lived to be adults.
By 1920 Sallie and Sam Anderson's children, Ethel, Myrtle, Elizabeth, Orman and Sam Jr. were all involved in the church, the girls were very musical and played a large part in the church chior. In the late 1930's Sallie and Sam Anderson sold their farm to Charlie Lindsey for his daughter Ruby Lindsey Murphy and moved their family to Decatur, Morgan County, Alabama. Ruby Murphy remained on this farm until her death many years later.
