xii.

Sarah Radford "Sallie" PETTITT56 was born in 1817. She died after 1880 at the age of 63.

Not everyone considers Sallie to have been a Pettitt. She married Henry Kelly, but no marriage record has been found. Some of the Kelly descendants say she was Sarah Stewart. The names in their family are not the typical Poindexter names and if she was really born 1817, she's almost too young to have been included.
