Your request for information has left me quite confused. If Salle Fisher was born in 1888, she was not born info slavery, which ended in 1865. Perhaps if you give us your grandmother's (one who told you the story) maiden name, birth year and place, someone will be able to trace the family back farther.
Dear Ms. Fisher,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Schedules for the 1890 Census; the Population Schedules for the 1900 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1910 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1920 Census, the Population Schedules for the 1930 Census, and the Population Schedules for the 1940 Census in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29) that may contain records of Sallie Fisher/Sallie Garner and her family. The 1940 Census schedules are digitized and available using the Catalog. See NARA’s 1940 Census Records web page for more information. For access to the non-digitized schedules, please contact the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

You may wish to search Ancestry.com for the U.S. Census. TThere may be a fee for using Ancestry. Instead, check for access at your local library as many library systems subscribe to these sites, making them free for their patrons.
We also suggest that you review the National Archives African American Research web site, the FamilySearch Research wikis on African American Genealogy, North Carolina Genealogy, Virginia Genealogy, and Tennessee Genealogy.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!

This link is to the 1920 Census in Boykins, VA for James Garner, age 60, Sallie M. Garner, 43, and 4 children.
The 1910 Census for Boykins VA lists Sallie Fisher, age 34, a widow with 6 children. The two oldest children were born in NC and the younger 4 in Virginia, which indicates that Sallie came to VA between 1896-1899.
