I realize yours is a very old post, but I have information on "Sallie" (actual name is Samatha Matheny Bridwell). She was my great-grandmother. She was born 5/1/1851 in Kentucky to Dr. A. D. And Emily Parkhill Matheny. She died in Red River County, TX, on 10/15/1905. According to the headstone, she is buried in IOOF Chosen Friends Cemetery in Metropolis, IL. She married my great-grandfather, William L. Bridwell, in Massac County, IL, on 6/14/1874. They parted ways after a breakup around 1899, and she moved to Red River County, TX, where she married A. R. Moore on 7/30/1901. They divorced around May of 1903.
