Notes for SARAH L. CHAMBERS:|
1850 Census Carroll County, Georgia.. age 36 born Georgia. After eight years of marriage (1850 Census) there were no children. An interesting anedote by Sherrell Hall on her family website at ancestry.com: "During a recent visit to Liberty Hill Cemetery in Acworth, Ga. a woman who lived across the street came over and introduced herself. She seemed very knowledgeable about the cemetery and some of the more famous people intered there. She commented that after Merrell Awtrey's death his wife Sarah had him pickled and placed in a glass top coffin! He was then intered in a brick mausoleum where she visited and spoke with him daily until she declined into mental illness. She died in 1895 and was also interred in the mausoleum. The mausoleum did not stand up well to time and the elements and finally an entire wall collapsed. Merrell and Sarah were then buried in the ground with simple markers provided by the county/cemetery. I have photos of the mausoleum ruin and the simple stones that now mark the graves. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this story but it is interesting and makes a wonderful anedote...."
