    Christian, Sallie
    Birth date 12 Apr 1893
    [The online version corrects this to the date known by the family:  4December 1893]
    Death date 08/00/1982

    The Federal Census (1900 Chickasaw Nation, and 1910 Stephens County,Oklahoma)  report Sallie's name under the spelling Sallie.  Sallie'sson Harold Keith Christian also spells the name Sallie.

    I found that the cemetery register for Rosehiill Cemetery inChickasha, Grady County, Oklahoma, has her name as Sallie G.  I don'tknow where they got the G or what it might stand for.  The cemeteryregistry does not have her birth date.  They also give only the monthof her death, not the day.  Sallie died on 26 August 1982.  Thecemetery registry says she was buried on 28 August.

    Karen, who originally posted Sallie's memorial on Find a Grave,updated it with missing information I provided from my research.  Shealso added the full notes for Sallie form this genealogy, which I havenot repeated in the memorial below.
