In the above post, I wrote, "There is a Sanderlin child in the 1860 census with William Lowe's wife Mary - this lends credibility to the idea that Mary is Mary Sanderlin (or a similar surname)...Mary Lowe may have died in Monroe County, Wisconsin; at least we last saw her in Monroe County in 1860. Her death record may tell her parents' names."
Meanwhile in another thread on this same topic by you in another forum, a researcher posted this:
"1850 Green WI....Thos SANDERLIN 65 NJ and w/Sarah 60 NJ live next door to Wm and Mary ... LOWE."
We had found that 1850 Green County, Wisconsin record for William and Mary Lowe - but I did not notice the Sanderlins next door. At the time, the name "Sanderlin" had not come up.
Here's what I should have done: I should have gone back and looked again at previously located records after new information and/or clues emerged (such as the name "Sanderlin").
Here's what you should have done: You should have let me and any other researchers in this forum know about this finding! What were you thinking to sit and remain silent about this!

Rule #1 in a collaborative search (that is, a search with which you want help): What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. In other words, volunteer researchers need and use the same info you need and use. Share, share, share - it's free to do so!
Also the researchers in the various forums weren't told about each other - so would be repeating each other's work. It's a waste. For future reference, it's better to ask respondents to consolidate replies in one forum. Thanks.
You've done a super job hanging in there; I know this was not intended but merely an unintended oversight due to not totally understanding how this all works. Either that or you did tell me this and I'm too brain dead to recall, but I don't think so.
1830 Cross Crk, Jefferson Co OH Thos SUNDERLAND is next door Wm LOW also next to Isaac SUNDERLAND
There's a Thos Jefferson SANDERLIN Jr in 1834 Jefferson Co Tax List - might be a brother to "your" Mary Lowe. There are many many posts on Genforum from descendants of Thomas Jefferson Sanderlin.
I have now noticed a family tree on Ancestry.com that is called the Marion Lowe and Lloyd Jordan tree. That will be your cousin Marion (our angel). Since you are member of Ancestry.com, you will be able to view all of Marion's most current findings. Please share any new info you notice.
