Most people remember Mr. Leslie because of The Book Store, a store that he owned and operated for over thirty years.

Last Edited17 Jul 2021
Birth*circa 1765Sarah 'Sally' Savage (widow?) was born circa 1765 at Accomack Co, VA.1 
Census head1820Sarah was listed as a head of household in the census of 1820 at Accomack Co, VA. Sally Savage owns 11 slaves.2 
Census head*1830Sarah was listed as a head of household in the census of 1830 at St. George Parish, Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as Sally Savage Sen, a head of HH, age 60-70 (b.c. 1760-1770). Listed with her was 1M60-70 and 9 slaves.1 
Will*8 September 1835Sarah made a will on 8 September 1835 at Accomack Co, VA. In her will Sarah 'Sally' Savage directed that all my Negroes & their increase to be free at my decease: Bridget, Rachel, George, Jane, Fanny, Peter, Shepherd, Molly, Jacob, Edmund, Eliza, Lewis, Abram, Samuel, An_s, Leah, Rachel, Isaac, Elizabeth, Jackson, James, Stephen, William, Major & Toby & to all whom I give the family name of Savage & $100 amongst them to obtain their free papers. To Negro woman Bridget ... To man Bowen ... & after his decease to my 3 Negro boys Stephen, William & James. To my 4 Negro boys Stephen, William, James & Toby ... To Sally Ann Elizabeth Savage ... To Nancy Bradford ... To man Bowen my house & lot during his life & then to George S. Savage. To George S. Savage ... Remainder to man Bowen & all my servants. Thomas Harrison & George S. Savage Extrs. Witt: Thomas A. Mapp, John H. Duncan, Samuel Lewis & John T. Warrington.3 
Census head1840Sarah was listed as a head of household in the census of 1840 at St. George Parish, Accomack Co, VA. She was shown as Sally Savage, a head of HH, age 60-70 (b.c. 1760-1770). Listed with her was 1M60-70 and 19 slaves.4 
Freed Slaves*1842She Freed Slaves in 1842 at Accomack Co, VA. Though the Sally who died in 1841 or early 1842 manumitted over 30 slaves (25 listed in her will), it seems more likely, though not definitive, that she is the Sally appearing in her own household in the 1820, 1830 & 1840 censuses.2 
Death*before 31 January 1842She died before 31 January 1842 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that her will was proved. She was shown as Sarah Savage. Samuel T. Lewis, Thorowgood Mears & John T. Warrington were securities.3 
Biography*Sally Savage d. 1841/42 is somehow associated with the line of Peter (of Abel) Savage (1738-1798)
and seems to be separate from the Savages and Stringers related to the Averys.
Mentioned in her will is a legacy to Sally Ann Elizabeth Savage (b.c. 1814), and in the account settlement her legacy is given to Calvin H. Savage (b.c. 1814, of Wm. F. of Peter of Abel) agent of Jane Savage (b.c. 1795, of Abel of Peter of Abel), mother of Sally Ann Elizabeth Savage. Benjamin Stringer (b.c. 1800, of Jacob of Jacob) also appears several times as a purchaser at her estate sale.
However, I haven't identified the George S. Savage who is named as executor in her will, or who exactly she herself was attached to. I suspect that Geo. S. is yet another man with that name who is not accounted for in the MilesFiles. I went down a bunch of different paths to try to make a connection for both, but nothing immediately obvious came up. I think it will take a good bit of in depth research to determine that information.

Married Name1667 As of 1667,her married name was Driggers.1 
Marriage*1667She married Thomas (of Em & Frances) Driggers (Rodrigus) (Negro Slave), son of Emanuell 'Mandell' Driggers (Rodrigues) (Free Negro) and Frances (-----) (Negro slave), in 1667 at Northampton Co, VA.1 
Biography*1672In 1672 the Northampton court ordered that Sarah "shall not depart the house of Mr. John Eyres master of the said Rodrigus without the leave of both her husband and Mr. John Eyre. Sarah did not follow the court ruling since she and her husband were listed in separate households in John Michael's Division from 1675 to 1677 [Orders 1664-74, 122; 1674-79, 75, 191]. She was in Somerset County, Maryland, before 23 April 1688 when she, called "negroe Woman & wife to Thomas Griggers Negro," complained to the Somerset County court that Margaret Holder had stolen some of her goods. Peter George, "Negroe" of Wiccocomoco Hundred, posted 5 pounds sterling security for Sarah's appearance. The court heard testimony from Peter George, Mary George, Mary Johnson, and Sarah Driggers, Jr., and found in favor of Margaret Holder. By 14 August 1688 Sarah, Peter George, three unnamed women, and an unstated number of men petitioned the Somerset County court to stop taxing them as slaves since they were free born. The court ruled that for that year the women should be exempt, but the men should pay taxes. The court also ordered that they obtain certificates from where they formerly lived to prove that they were free born [Archives of Maryland 91:47; Judicial Record, 1687-89, 58]. In 1689 Sarah was back in Northampton County where she and "Sarah Landrun free Negroes" (her niece Sarah Landrum) were given twenty-five lashes on their bare backs for stealing some yarn from "a free Negro woman commonly called Black Nanny" [Orders 1679-89, 463]. She was about forty years old when she made a deposition in the case of Peter George in the 29 May 1691 session of the Northampton County court [Orders 1689-98 116]. Thomas died before March 1694 when his widow Sarah recorded her livestock mark in court [DW 1651-4, p.28 at the end of the volume]. On 1 February 1698 she won a suit against A. Westerhouse for 300 pounds of tobacco for curing his arm, and on 28 May 1700 Lieutenant Colonel Nathaniel Littleton won a suit against her for 83 pounds of tobacco per account of public dues and officers fees [Orders 1689-98, 521; OW&c 1698-1710, 39, 43]. Since Sarah was free, so also were her children.1 
Deposition*May 1691Sarah Tony (Negro Slave) gave a deposition in May 1691 at Northampton Co, VA. She was shown as Sarah Driggus, age about 40 years.3 
Cattle Mark*25 March 1694A cattle mark was recorded for Sarah Tony (Negro Slave) on 25 March 1694 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that Sarah Driggus, Negro, widow of Thomas Driggurs, Negro, recorded her cattle mark in court.4 
Court - namd in suit*28 May 1700She was named in a lawsuit on 28 May 1700 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that Lieutenant Colonel Nathaniel Littleton won a suit against her for 83 pounds of tobacco per account of public dues and officers fees [Orders 1689-98, 521; OW&c 1698-1710, 39, 43].5
