Sarah Elizabeth Arrick/Orrick (Bettie)
Last updated Aug 5, 2008
The key to finding Bettie was that she often kept other family members in her relatively empty house. In 1910, her niece, Catherine Cash, daughter of Manley Wileman Cash (Mack) and Elizabeth Violet Arrick, is staying with her, and incorrectly transcribed as Rittie.
Much of this information is derived from the census and much is left to be learned - and corrected. If you have information, please email me.

Husband, James B Anderson

Lived next door to Ben L Anderson and Betsey Ann. Lived next to Finney families.
He died in Franklin Co, in 1925 at the age of 79, and is buried in Payne's Church Cemetery.
Death certificate for James B Anderson.
The Arrick Name
Many Orricks pronounced their name "Ark" and it is spelled that way in many branches in several decades. Some of these Orricks eventually used the Arrick name formally.
See this page about how some Orricks became Arricks.
Here is Sarah as a child in the Warren Co. TN census
Orrick, John, 23, Laborer, TN (b abt 1827)
Orrick, Jno., age 34
The 1870 census was difficult.
Many for Warren county census originals are undreadable.
Arke, Pegy, 50 (1820), cannot read/write -- Margaret
Peggy is a common name for Margaret
Here is the family in Coffee Co - Jno is passed.
Coffee Co, TN 1880 census at bottom
Arrick, Margaret, age 51 (b abt 1829), House Keeper, WIDOWED
Virtually all of the 1890 census and special schedules were lost by fire, water, and human distruction.
Sarah has married James Anderson - both in their 50's.
Sarah and James are keeping a Niece: Minnie Finney, born 1880.
James Anderson, 54, July 1845, married 1 year
Niece Minnie Finney
Later, in 1910, there is no Minnie Finney, but there are several Minnie D's in TN of the same age.
Also in 1910, James Finney and his wife Martha of only 8 years is shown with several kids. It appears that Rebecca has passed and James remarried with a new family.
There is a John (1853) and Sarah (1870) Finney family with many children on the same page.
I'm unsure at this point who Minnie is or which side she is on.
This is a complex story but there are many clues.
Here is Sarah (Bettie) and James Anderson with their Niece Kittie Cash, 20 and adpoted son Aubry Smith, 2.
I'm unable to locate Aubry in any other census.
Kittie Cash is Catherine Cash, daughter of Manley Wileman Cash (Mack) and Elizabeth Violet Arrick. She has moved from Texas where she was born back to TN along with her Dad. Later she marries a Pearson and lives with her Dad in Coffee Co.
James Anderson, 63
Niece, Kittie Cash
Adopted Son Aubry Smith
Here's the family in the Franklin Co again, this time with a Niece Lizzie B Gillium, and a hired man Franklin Gunn/Bynum?.
The Henry Finney family is nearby.
James B Anderson, 74
Niece Lizzie B. Gillium
So, I don't know who she is. Possibly she is a daughter of a sister of James who married a Gillium.
Special thanks to Marsha Frank who pointed us to the Payne's Church Cemetery records.
