Photograph of 209 E. Pine taken from the road. Photo was taken for the Historic Resources Survey of Palestine, Texas 1989-1991. The centrally-placed door on the front suggests this dwelling has a central passage or hallway. Most local examples of this vernacular house form are only a single story in height, have a side-gabled roof, and are only one room deep. Deviating from the norm, this 2-story frame residence has a hipped roof and a plan that is two rooms deep. The porch with its slender Doric columns suggests an influence of the Classical Revival style. The earliest known occupants of this house were Robert Roach "Tab" Sadler, a tax assessor at the courthouse, and his wife, who lived here as early as 1926. (Had to be earlier than that since she died in 1919)
By 1930 the house was occupied only by Tab Sadler and a renter, probably indicating the death of Mrs Sadler.
Below is information sent to me by Jane a great niece in Phoenix, Arizona.
Some time before 1901 he taught school in New Mexico. His brother, Theophilus "Thee", was a lawyer and 2 time District Attorney of Anderson Co.
He and a friend went to the Texas panhandle looking at land and "Thee" died of an accidental gunshot wound. Tab brought his brother back home. They also had a sister Geneva.
Tab marriied in 1906 in Waco, Marguerite (called "Guite" pronounced "geet"). They had some children and there were also children from her 1st marriage. Unfortunately, she died in 1919.
This information was told by "Pat" Sadler a son of Tab.
