Sarah Elizabeth Pierce Allmon, daughter of Reuben Harrison Pierce (1812-1914) and Sarah Baker Pierce (1815-1886).
Married John Virgil Allmon (1850-1870) probably in GA.
Her uncle, Dr. Robert J. Pierce, with his wife and two children had migrated to Arkansas early in that year. The rest of the Pierce family became victims of the fever to "go west" and in September, 1870, several of these families, including the newly married Allmons, boarded a train in Dalton making the trip to Memphis by train. There they took a boat down the Mississippi River, up the White and Arkansas Rivers to "a village on the north bank of the Arkansas, opposite Dardanelle, known as Norristown.
The journey from Georgia had been a long and difficult one. The time was late fall and their resources were depleted. The men found temporary shelter for their families and went into the cotton fields to try to earn enough money to purchase supplies needed for the winter ahead. In February, 1871, the majority of the families set out to join Uncle Bob Pierce in Marion County, but the young Allmons decided to stay in Pope County. They settled then in the Carrion Crow Mountain community, later buying acreage two miles east of Pottsville. Some years later they built a large two story house on the property where they lived and reared their family of four girls and three boys. Two of their children had died. Allmon died in August, 1914, his wife having preceded him in death in September, 1912. They are buried in the family plot in Pisgah Cemetery.
