John Wesley McCaige was born about 1822, probably in Perry County, Tennessee. He was the son of Samuel McCaige and Elizabeth Leslie.
John married Sarah “Sallie” Sutter around 1840 in Tennessee, both were about 18 years old. Sarah was born in November 1821 in Tennessee. John and Sallie had nine children, however I could only find record of six:
George Dauer born June 9, 1840
Susan C. born January 8, 1848
By 1860, the family had moved to a farm in Washington Township in Conway County, Arkansas.
In 1900, Sallie was living in Rowland, Los Angeles County, California with her son, George. John had died by this time, as Sallie was listed as a widow in that census.
Sarah Sutter McCaige died on September 5, 1908 in Los Angeles County, California. She was just two months shy of her 87th birthday.
