Hi Brian;
Thanks for responding. Do you have any further info on Sarah? What we have is that Sarah was born on January 21, 1806 in St Stevens, Washington County, Alabama and died on January 31, 1861 in Brazoria County, Texas. The birth and death dates are from her grave marker. The grave is located on what used to be the Mims plantation. She is buried along with Joseph Mims (husband), Lumbert Mims (son), Ann Elizabeth Mims (daughter- died at 8 yrs old), Julia Mims (daughter - died at 5 yrs old), Sarah Tate Mims (granddaughter, daughter of Lumbert, died at 10yrs old). I have pictures of the cemetery and can send them if you like. Matagorda County is not far from Brazoria but we know Sarah was running the plantation with her sons at the time of her death. Do you have a date as to when the Weekley's moved to Texas? This may help us determine if Sarah Sallie is the same person. We have that Joseph and Sarah married on January 8, 1821 in Baldwin County, Alabama which was obtained from the internet. The only dates we are sure of is their birth and death dates as written on the tombstones which are the same as the dates obtained from the internet. I hope we are talking about the same person. I have other info on Sarah and have obtained copies of the wills (Joseph, Sarah, etc.) though I have not transcribed them as of yet. Info can be found at BCHM.ORG or the HANDBOOK OF TEXAS ONLINE if interested. Also, an Edmund Weekley signed as witness to Joseph Mims's will. Have any idea who he might be? The will was signed October 25, 1844.
