Sarah M. (Sallie) Broughton Gilbert. She was born November 5 1809 in
Augusta Georgia and died 02 Sep 1880 in Oktibbeha County. The Gilbert
place was on the south side of the Tibbee, down the Starkville Road.
Her grandson Henry Clay
This is a pan shot of Lot A-107. You can see Sarah's tombstone in the
front with what we think are foot stones between her grave and Henry
Clay Gilbert's grave which has the broken stone.
Stacy Ellis Gilbert, wife of Zachary T. Gilbert. Below is her brother
John Cavanah Ellis. On one side is Stacy and John's father Doctor Daniel
Ellis and his wife Susan Holbrook Ellis. On the other side is is Alfred
Burrell Ellis and his wife Lillian Ellis. Some day I hope to research
the Ellis family more, it appears they made a great contribution to
Oktibbeha, Lowndes, and Clay County. According to the 1880 Census, Dr.
Ellis ran the Poor House. His Daughter Stacy and her Husband Zachary
lived next door but were apparently not inmates. Zachary and Stacy had
a daughter named Minnie May Gilbert and I have been unable to find out
what happened to her. Their son Henry Clay Gilbert, named after Zachary's
brother, is buried in Lot
Right: William H. Price is not related to me though my father, grandfather, and one great great uncle were named William H. Price.
