Notes for Sarah (Sally) Tipps
Michael Awalt, Jr. married Sarah Sally Tipps on September 19, 1811, in Burke County, North Carolina, after he had returned from a five year tour of military duty. He had joined the calvary at Salisbury, North Carolina, and served in the regular army under Captain Christian Limburg. He was discharged in August, 1811. Upon his return to North Carolina and marriage to Sarah, they moved to Lincoln County, Tennessee, that October with his sister and Sarah's father (Jacob Tipps). There in Lincoln County, their first two children were born. Michigan joined the service again in 1814, serving in the Tennessee Militia under Captain William Russell for 146 days until the Treaty of Peace (War of 1812). It appears that they had three more children there before moving their family to Wayne County, Indiana, about 1822. On June 20, 1877, Michael Awalt paid $200 for 124 acres from John Buddick in Columbus Twp, Bartholomew County, Indiana. Miachael died suddenly in 1835 leaving Sarah with eight children still at home. After Michael's death, Sarah and her children gave a Quit Claim Deed on this land to Joel Williams on September 15, 1848. The children of age who signed this deed were Henry H., William, George W., Jacob and John Awalt. On the same day, Sarah Awalt also sold land to Joel Williams for $600. It was at this time that Sarah, along with her children and their families, moved to Davis County, Iowa. In 1868, she moved to Appanoose County, Iowa, where she lived the rest of her life."1295
