Sallie Carroll (West)

Sallie was one of the children of Major Carroll and Sarah Elizabeth Branch (Carroll).  One of her older sisters was my great-grandmother, Emma Carroll Espy.  These scans are courtesy of Sam Carroll West, Jr., whose grandmother was Sallie.  This blog post will be an ongoing work in progress. I will be adding more photos, captions and key biographical information.

I just took this photo out of it's frame and found writing on the back. It identifies and gives children and their order of birth, etc. "Back row- John-3rd, Oscar-2nd, Marvin-5th, Sam-7th, 2nd row- Irene-next to youngest 9, Emma-4th Major Espy's mother, Sallie-6th, Ruth- youngest 10th, Anna-oldest, Corene-8th" Then notes that one died before Sallie so that was the 5th child.  "Front row Mother's mother" which we know to be Sarah Branch Carroll. Also says "After funeral-day of funeral" "Land at Ozark and N of Headland owned for five generations with Tom and Sammy's generation"  - Judy
