    Anecdote
    • Notes from Dianne H. Gomez
      Sallie S. C. Leftwich Smith is the subject of a wonderful letter written probably by her son, Ferdinand. He describes his memories as a 10 year old boy, of the journey which the widowed Sallie and her ten children made by steamer and by wagons from Bedford County, Virginia to Pettis County, Missouri in 1846. They traveled with "fourteen servants, three wagons of household goods and ten seated carry-all or pleasure wagon equipped with tents for a camping trip over the mountains." They arrived in December after six weeks journey and, with the help of her brother, William Burwell Leftwich of Pettis County, she bought a tobacco farm where she raised her children.
      Some sources show her name as Sarah Saunders Clayton Leftwich, but the Leftwich Family Association says it is Claytor. Sallie's brother William Burwell Leftwich married John Wesley's sister Sarah Elizabeth Smith.
