Sallie Wooten was one of the children of Council Wooten and his second wife Mary Roach Shipp. Shortly after her birth in NC, the family moved south to Pulaski Co., GA. After a few years there, they moved a few counties north to Russellville in Monroe Co. It was here that she married Robert Sanders Anderson and moved back to his home in Pulaski Co. They would have 13 children from 1837 to 1862, 9 of them living to adulthood. Mostly a housewife for her successful planter husband, she also served as a seamstress. She died of dropsy, a swelling of tissues on the body now called edema, in 1880.
