Sarah Ann Adams married Jesse Franklin Gott on April 7, 1869, at her parents' home, called "The White House." It was also a general store, and was located just a short distance south of the Gott Cemetery. Jesse Franklin Gott was born March 18, 1845, near Ulman's Ridge and was a son of Jesse Gott Sr. (1815 - 1900) and his first wife, Catherine Tinsley (1819 - 1851).

Jesse's father was a schoolteacher back in Bledsoe County, Tennessee, and continued teaching after they moved to Miller County. A schoolhouse was built on Jesse's farm, and was called Gott School. He probably was an early teacher at this school.
