BIOGRAPHICAL (Source - Tartar, Nicholas (1940), "Thomas Estes Family History", Historically Speaking, Vol. XII, pg 6 , PCHS 1998):
"...Sarah (Sallie) Estes, grandfather's eldest child (eldest daughter) married Hugh Faulkenbury in 1841, or when she was 16 years of age. By him she had five children, all born in Arkansas. These were Martha, born early 1842; Susan; David; Thomas and John. The entire family arrived in Oregon with my parents in 1853, except Mr. Faulkenbury, who died on the plains. Sometime after coming to Oregon, Sallie married William Sebring, a widower with five children. He had previously buried two wives. He owned a large farm adjoining the one my father bought, near the present site of Airlie, Polk County, Oregon, in 1860. On this farm Sallie had five Sebring children. In rotation they were: Andrew, George, James, Emily and Marcus. They lived on this farm until 1867 or 1868 when Mr. Sebring sold the farm and moved to southern Oregon, buying a farm seven niles from Roseburg. While there Sallie concluded to leave Mr. Sebring, saying that she could no longer endure his abusive and tyrannical treatment. So she came back to Polk County in 1872 or 1873. Later Mr. Sebring offered to allow her to keep the younger children and gave her $800 as a settlement. This she accepted, but they were never divorced. Mr. Sebring remained in Roseburg with his oldest son, Francis, until his death.
After the separation, Sallie lived in several places in Polk County, always having some of her children with her. She was living in Airlie, occupying her own home when she died in the year of 1906, at the age of 81. She was buried in the English Cemetery near Airlie. Two of her sons David and Thomas, died of tuberculosis when they were young men, but Martha, Susan and John lived to be more than 80 years of age. Marcus is the only one still alive at this date, September 1939."
