Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 25, 1776
Union County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 8, 1838
Union County
South Carolina, USA

Sallie's burial site is not known for sure, though we suspect she is also buried at the Gibbs Cemetery with her husband.

She was born in an area of now, Union Co when it was Craven County, which at the time was part of North Carolina, then became Old 96 District, Union District and finally Union Co SC.

Sally married Zachariah Gibbs about 1796, in Union Co SC. They had 7 known children: Anna B [Gibbs] White, Eleanor Y "Nellie" [Gibbs] Norman, M Priscilla [Gibbs] Robinson, Churchwell Gibbs (married a Fincher), Rev John Gibbs (married a Murphy and a Felder), James Gibbs (married a Felder), Mary Mayberry [Gibbs] Sparks.

She was the daughter of Rev Obediah & Priscilla Avery [Breed] Howard, once also of Union Co SC, and migrated to KY.

Sallie's Siblings were:
Nancy Ann, Joseph, Mary, Stephen, Jesse, Hannah, Avery, William, Christopher, Pricilla, Ann, Nathan Howard.

Zachariah and Sally are listed on a one page bible record, with their children. In a lost bible, Sarah's birth was listed as 25 Sep 1776 page 74, and now Sarah Gibbs died: 8 Nov 1838 page 75, this bible had belonged to a Mrs Williams of Pauline SC.

"The birth and death records of Sarah are established from Bible records in possession of Mr Manning Williams, of Glenn Springs, SC. This statement in book Historical Southern Families vol III" (Now lost)

They were members of the Padgett's Creek Baptist Church in Cross Keys Union Co SC.
