Richard Henry Sansom was father of Savantha Swenson Sansom-mother Mary Agness "Molly" Cooper Sansom, d/o Matthew D. Cooper of Maury Co., Tn..
Richard Henry's father Dorrell N. Sansom, mother Mary Brown.He had a sister Jennett White Sansom who md. a George Long in 1835.At least I believe this is his sister, his father named her in his will in 1834.I have not carried out her line.Dorrell N. Sansom was a son of Judge William Sansom of Wilkes Co., Ga. born in 1756 died in 1818, and Elizabeth D. Napier, d/o Richard Napier of Georgia and Dickson Co., Tn.
Richard and wife, Mary Agness Cooper Sansom (she called Molly) had living three sons in 1856 cited by her brother Henry in a letter to their father, Matthew D. Cooper. These three must have been Savantha Swenson, Loyola Delamere and Richard Henry.Loyala Delamere appears to have died before 1860 census, as must have Stella Jeanette born 1848 and died before 1860.She is 2 in 1850 census, and Savantha Swenson aged 1 (S.J. and S.S. in census). They also had a Mary Caroline who died in infancy, Duncan Brown died in infancy; Cooper Sansom lived Williamson Co., Tx.; Mar Agness b. 1861, died Nov. 1907 married Jessie Eugene Cooper; and Matthew Dorrell, born 1867 died 6-22-1901 unmarried.Matthew Dorrell (1870 as Dorrell, later census M.D. or Matthew D.) lived in HH of Jessie Cooper, sister Mary S. in 1900 as did Mary Agness "Molly" Sansom as Mary Sansom, born July 1829-where it states in 1900 she had 12 children with 5 living.
I can give names of some of siblings, etc. I believe if you count Stella Jeanette, Mary Caroline, Loyola Delamere, Duncan Brown we are missing just one of her children and living children we still miss one child children as this adds just to 11. I guess this isn't bad.
I can give names of some of the children's children if you want them all.
