|Sarah Epes Doswell Cabell (1802-1874)|
(portrait of white woman, dark hair curled over ears, white pleated collar)
The descendants of Sallie Doswell included some prominent folks. Her son William Lewis Cabell (1827-1911) was a West Point graduate, a Confederate general, and after the war was mayor of Dallas, Texas, and a railroad executive. His son was also mayor of Dallas. His grandson was also mayor of Dallas. Another of Sally's sons, George Craighead Cabell (1836-1906) was a six-term Congressman from Virginia. (She died at his house.) Her great-grandson Charles Pearre Cabell (1903-1971) was Deputy Director of the CIA at the time of the Bay of Pigs invasion.
No solid mention of this woman attending the Mordecai school, but I haven't run across any other Sarah Doswells that would fit the profile for a Mordecai student, and this one does, perfectly.
