PS ~ Since my original post, have been told that Elizabeth SA(U)NDERS who married George W. ALLEN was a sister to my grandfather, Andrew Masten SA(U)NDERS born 1854 near Lost Creek, Franklin County, Tennessee, as was Elizabeth in 1844.
Their parents, Hardy Holman SA(U)NDERS and Catherine Anne CLAMPET(T) moved to Marshall County, Alabama just prior to 1860.
Other siblings to Elizabeth and Andrew were:John H., born 1836; George H. [or W.], born 1838; Melvina J., born 1840; Emily, born 1842; William [Wiley or Weely], born 1846; Malinda [possibly Sidney Malinda], born 1848; Hardy H. [Jr~?], born 1850; Pinkney "Pink", born 1852 [shot by soldiers in CW]; Trissa, born 1856, married George W. THOMAS in 1882; Isaac, born 1858; and possibly Steven/Stephen born after 1860.
Something must have happened to George W. ALLEN as when Elizabeth's daughter, Leona Catherine, married Franklin PRUITT in 1888 at her Grandmother Catherine's home, Leona's mother was listed as Elizabeth FORD.
Does anyone have any ALLENs connected to these SANDERS?Thanks, Annie
