Find A Grave Memorial# 26088532
Sarah (Sallie) A Sessions Ward
Birth:Jul.7, 1856 Lillie, Union Parish, Louisiana, USA
Death:Feb. 26,1949 Lillie, Union Parish, Louisiana, USA
"Sarah (Sallie) A Sessions was born 7 July 1856 in Lillie, Union Parish, Louisiana and died 26 February 1949 in Lillie, Union Parish, Louisiana. She was the daughter of John L Sessions and his wife Susan.

Sarah (Sallie) A Sessions married John Elbert (Dock) Ward on 15 May 1879 in Union Parish, Louisiana. Sallie and her husband had at least eight children.

As the widow of John E Ward, Sallie applied for a widow's Confederate Pension from the state of Louisiana on 30 January 1926. It was allowed on 9 March 1926. In March of 1931 Sallie received a letter from the Louisiana Board of Pension Commissioners stating that she was not entitled to the pension she was drawing because her husband did not serve in the regular army of the Confederate States, but was a member of a Reserve Corps. Apparently this problem was eventually resolved when it was found that her husband's Reserve Company was mustered into the regular Confederate army and was made a part of Caper's Battalion, 5th Louisiana Cavalry, sometime around the year of 1864."
