Sarah Jane "Sallie" CARVER, daughter of Green Carver and Martha L. Stapp was born 11 Oct 1867 in Pickens County, Alabama, and died 19 Dec 1938 in Pickens County, Alabama. She married Robert "Bob" Bradshaw BAILEY on 19 Jan 1888 in Pickens County, Alabama, son of Lawrence Decody Bailey and Annie Boon. He was born 21 Mar 1866 in PIckens County, Alabama and died 23 Nov 1945 in Pickens County, Alabama.

Sarah Jane "Sallie" Carver, wife of Robert Bradshaw Bailey, lived on Carver Road across street from niece, Rebecca Elizabeth "Lizzie" Carver, daughter of Reverend James "Jim" Monroe Carver and wife of John Thomas Noland. Apparently, Sallie's son-in-law Dr. Albert Thomas "Doc" Kirk, gave her a great deal of paragoric [an addictive pain killer]. At any rate, when the Noland boys, Thomas Edgar Noland or "Dutch" and Samuel Cayce Noland needed a little spending money, they would crawl under their Grand Aunt Sallie's house and retrieve paragoric bottles to sell. They were 'returnable' at the drug store. Sallie apparently threw them under the house when she finished with them. "Lizzie" learned what they were doing and forbade them to do it again. "Dutch" said that when Sallie died, there was a "mountain" of paragoric bottles under her house. And that was after the Nolan boys had taken many, many bottles from beneath the house.

Samuel Cayce Noland said that Sallie was "such fun" to be around. She had a great sense of humor, laughed and kidded the children. She had flaming red hair. (inherited from the Carvers, no doubt).
Sallie dipped snuff and was a fireball.
