Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 17, 1878
Dallas County
Texas, USA
Death: Sep. 10, 1911
Brown County
Texas, USA

Sarah was mortally wounded (murdered) with a blunt iron rod while sleeping next to husband George on their porch.

According to a story told to by Garince Land Sr., who was the grandson of Sarah, George was pardoned as a result of another man who was being executed and gave a chance to come clean on other crimes, and according to the story told by Garnice who was told the story by his mother Ava, the man said that his first crime he ever committed was the murder of a woman who was sleeping on her porch in Brownwood, Texas in the summer of 1911. As a result of his confession prior to his execution and the resulting investigation, George Brown was released.

To see George Brown's convection appeal, Google search: "Sallie brown murder in 1911" select result from:
The Southwestern Reporter.

I want to personally thank my Cousin, Jeannett Buris for the many hours that she volunteered he services to the Ancestry Museum in Brownwood, Texas that lead to the wonderful headstone that now marks Sarah's previously unmarked grave.
