    • From the Fayette County Broadcaster February 1978 in an article entitled "The Ballenger Family" by Sharlene McGee Foster it says that "Sarah Caroline, both sons, their wives and their wives' parents are buried in the Old Mt. Lebanon Cemetery. This old deserted cemetery is located on a dirt road off of Highway 107 which is the road going to Bluff. Part of the 'Ballenger Road' runs nearby.
      This Ballenger Road is the road which leads from Highway 107 to Highway 18 coming out just below Mt. Vernon Church. It passes through the original farm that Sarah and her sons struggled for nearly 100 years ago.
      Think of the old Ballinger, Willis and Bobo families who settled this land. Most of all think of it as Sarah Caroline's land. She's a fine example of an early Fayette County pioneer."
