Sallie P. Showalter Hawley. She was my grandfather Showalter's sister. She married a Hawley. She died at an early age (24 1/2) 6 week's or so after her first son, Curtis, was born. It is said she died of Typhoid, but it has also been speculated that the medicine given for the Typhoid contained arsenic - not as poison, but unknowingly. She grew up in the Hiwassee area of Pulaski, in the town of Snowville, VA. She was born Dec 30, 1875, and died Aug 19, 1900.
