Sarah Louise "Sallie" Smith was the daughter of Archibald and Malinda (Haley) Smith. The land on which she grew up in Leon County was deeded to her father by the Republic of Texas for his service in the Texas Revolution. In the 1850 census, her widowed mother was the legal owner of that land and all associated property; highly unusual for that time period. Her grandmother Elizabeth Smith was awarded a league of land by the Mexican government under Stephen F. Austin's New Kentucky Colony in 1821.
Sarah married B.J. Cash when he returned to Leon County after serving under General John B. Magruder in the Civil War.
They had 10 children who lived to adulthood: Walter Henry Cash, Anna B. (Cash) Jones, Charles Lacey Cash, Ninnie (Cash) Wherry, Mary Annette (Cash) Ware Lipsey, William Richard Cash, Samuel Cash, James Robert Cash, Mabel (Cash) Bolte, and Paul J. Cash.
