Biographical History

Sarah Lois Wadley was born 26 November 1844, in South New Market, New Hampshire, and died 7 December 1920. She was the daughter of William Morrill Wadley (1866-1882), a president of the Central of Georgia Railway, and Rebecca Barnard E. Wadley. In 1858 the Wadley family and its slaves moved to Amite, Louisiana. In 1860 they were in Vicksburg, Mississippi, and in 1861 they moved to Onachita Parish, Louisiana, where they remained until after the Civil War. During the Civil War, William Wadley was appointed superintendent of transportation for the Confederacy. In November 1865 the family moved back to Georgia. Sarah Wadley lived in the family home at Bolingbroke, in Monroe County, Georgia, until 1905.
