[Carroll County]

RICHARD SARLLS, a prominent man of Mount Vernon, was born in Carroll Co.,
Ky., August 13, 1839, and is one of a family of eight children born to
the marriage of Richard Sarlls and Julia Evertson. The father and mother
died within three months of each other, when our subject was but eight
years of age. After their deaths he came to Mount Vernon and lived with
his uncle, J.R. Evertson, until he was eighteen years of age, learning
the miller's trade. He worked at that occupation in Mount Vernon and
Uniontown, Ky., until the close of the war, when he began buying and
selling grain, and has continued in this business ever since, engaging,
also, at time, in the dry goods and merchandise business. He was a
member of the firm of Fuhrer, Boyce & Co. from 1874 to 1880. Since the
latter date he has engaged in the grain and real estate business, and
has also given considerable attention to farming, and own 750 acres of
good bottom land in Kentucky, besides good residence property and
business blocks in Mount Vernon. In 1860 he was married to Libbie
Hinkle, who died in 1879, leaving seven children: Richard, Edward H.,
Jessie, Walter, Howard H., LeRoy and Louis P. In June, 1883, he married
his present wife, Miss Fannie Hinch, a native of the county. Mr. Sarlls
has been very prosperous financially, and is considered one of the
foremost business men of the county. He is independent in his political
views, and he and wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.
