Death: Dec. 29, 1914
Davidson County
North Carolina, USA

w/o of Henry W Dickens

Little is known of Sarah, except she was raised by Mary Ann Wright Varker. Mary Ann was indicated as mother on Sarah's death certificate.

Family was found in 1900 census living in Back Creek, Randolph County, North Carolina
Household Members:
Henry Dickens 46
Sarah V Dickens 39
Kyle V Dickens 18 [later found as Clyde V[ernon] Dickens
Henry M K Dickens 12 (this is supposed to be daughter, Henrietta Dickens) Unknown what happened to her.
Ola B Dickens 10

In 1910, Henry W. and Sarah lived in Thomasville, NC with their daughter, Ola (20) still living with them. Henryetta/Henrietta is not in the family; presumably married.

The following obituary, provided by the Albemarle Library, was published in The Albemarle Enterprise, January 7, 1915, reads: "Mrs. Dickens of East Albemarle died December 29 [1914] at the home of her son-in-law, C. C. James. The burial took place December 30 at Poplin's Grove."

Contact with the Poplar Church indicates no plot has been located and there is no headstone for Sarah. However, since this burial place was reflected in her obituary and on her d/c, this is where she will be found.
