Sallie Gibbs Pridgen, a Duplin County NC native, was the daughter of Sallie Gibbs and Robert Courtney Pridgen; spouse of James 'Zeke' Ezekiel Anderson; mother of Samuel Harrison Anderson, Albert Gallatin Anderson, Bettie Slade Anderson Kreplick, Anne Harriet Anderson Whitfield and Julie Lawrence Anderson Smith; sister of Robert Pridgen and Martha Rodgers.

She attended Flora McDonald College, was a graduate of Elon College, and received her Masters in English Literature at age 49 from UNC-CH. Upon graduation, she taught at Prospect Hill and Glade Valley School near Sparta, N.C. She retired from employment in 1973.

In her earlier years in Yanceyville, she worked as a legal secretary and assisted Burch Blaylock, County Clerk of Court. She was a Girl Scout Leader and Sunday School teacher.

She loved music, literature, and history. She sang in the church choir, played piano and autoharp. She was editor of the Caswell County Historical Association Newsletter. She and her husband Zeke were involved in the inception of the Richmond-Miles Museum in Yanceyville. They and many members of the CCHA were able to save the old county court house from possible demolition. The "Sallie and Zeke Anderson" room of the museum is symbolic of their dedication to the preservation of the local and regional history. Mrs. Anderson served as docent on a regular basis and had such a passion and knowledge that many visitors from many different places called on her for information about their ancestors. She was an active member of the D.A.R. and the U.D.C.
