     Sallie Kintner was born November 25, 1843 to Jacob and Pamela Kintner. She was the youngest of four children and grew up in the Kintner House which was located across from the town square. After that building burned in 1871, the Kintners built and lived in the existing Kintner House.
      "Miss Sallie", as she was affectionately known, was generous, sympathetic, and warmhearted The pretty young woman was an ardent and untiring worker in the Corydon Christian Church. She joined the church May 31, 1869 and served as organist for 37 years. She was also leader of the choir. She was active in the work of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and served as President of the Corydon Chapter. Miss Sallie took an active part in the state work of the Missionary Society of the Christian Church and held various state offices in that group.
      When Jacob Kintner died in 1880, he passed the Kintner House on to Miss Sallie, his only surviving daughter. Her brother, Colonel William Kintner managed the hotel for his sister until his death in 1896, however Miss Sallie managed the dining room and the hired help, and did so in a friendly and businesslike manner.
      Miss Sallie was married November 8, 1881 to Major William T. Jones, a prominent attorney in Corydon. Major Jones had served in the 17th Indiana Volunteer during the Civil War. He later served as Associate Justice of Wyoming Territory and for two years was a Territorial Delegate to Congress from Wyoming. He returned to Corydon where he practiced law and married Miss Sallie Kintner. The wedding vows were performed beneath a floral horseshoe suspended from the ceiling in the parlor of the Kintner House. A large number of guests witnessed the lavish ceremony, followed by an impressive dinner and reception.
      William Jones died eleven months later. At the time of his death, Miss Sallie was visiting her brother George in New York City. It was before the days of embalming and Major Jones' body was placed in the cave near the Constitutional Elm until Miss Sallie could return for the burial service.
      Eventually Miss Sallie's declining health prevented her from operating the hotel. Efforts to entrust the operation of the Kintner House to others were unsuccessful. The hotel closed to the public, and Miss Sallie lived in a room on the second floor. She died in the Kintner House on August 23, 1922.
