SANDERS posted by Minister
Louise Sanders Asher on Sunday, November 29, 1998
Looking for the name SANDERS. My father's family lived in Texarkana, sometime
between 1920 and 1940. His father's name was Tom, who would have been around
80 years of age in 1930. His wife's name was Miranda, who we estimated
to be born around 1863-1865. The children were all born after 1895. There
names were Lutinie, Leola, John L, Raymond, Effie, Rosa Lee, and Bessie.
Step children were Katie (last name unknown) and Manning BELL (who were
born in the late 1880's). Also, other names associated with the family
were, John LAWRENCE (Effie's husband), Morris MAYES (Katie's husband) Jewel
MCDOWELL (Raymond's wife), Mcallister MINNER (Rosa Lee's husband), Sam
MAXIE (Bessie's husband), Maurice Minner, Hazel Bell and George Bell (brother
and sister). The bulk of the family moved to the westcoast in the early
1940's. Any and all help will be appreciated.
