SALLY SCOTT (WHARTON) MANNON Sally Scott Wharton was born on the 7/6/1794 in Kentucky. She was the daughter of Richard and Sally (Scott) Wharton. Her father Richard was born and raised in Virginia and had come from a good family stock that State.
Aaron Mannon and Sally Scott (Wharton) were married on 11/1/1810 near Covington, Kentucky. After their marriage, Aaron and Sally moved to Wayne County, Indiana along with Sally's father, Richard Wharton and family and her Uncle, Rice Wharton and his family.
LIFE IN INDIANA Once the families arrived in Indiana, Sally's husband Aaron, made a land claim about 2 miles from Germantown, on the National (Pike) Road, 12 miles from the County Seat of Richmond, and 6 miles from Centerville, which is in the Western part of the county on Greene Fork of Whitewater River. There was a cross road store called Pin Hook, located just one half mile from their cabin. Records show the families settled their land in Indiana on 8/15/1814.
The land was ruff and the soil was light. It was located in heavey beech timber. The young couple were forced to work hard to clear the land. As the forrest was cut and the stumps were cleared, they tried to farm the land. With the constant hard work and providing for such a large family's needs, life took it's toll on the young mother's body.
Sally & Aaron spent their entire married life in Wayne County Indiana, which is where all their children were born.

DEATH OF A YOUNG MOTHER & HER TWINS: The care of such a large family, and the heavy work of such a poor family was too much for the little mother. She married young and never was very strong. Sally Scott Mannon never left her bed after the birth of her twins, she died just 11 days after their birth. Baby Aaron M. lived only two days and Baby Sally W, died at 1 month and 5 days old.
LAID TO REST ON THE FAMILY FARM The little mother was buried under an apple tree on the family farm, only a few rods from the house in Wayne County, Indiana. Unless her remains have been moved to some permanate cemetery, she sleeps there still and the spot where she was laid to rest is most likely forgotten.
At the time of her death, on April 29, 1829 she was only 34 years, 10 months, and 23 days old. In all she and Aaron had been married nineteen years. In that 19 years time she gave birth to 10 children.
