Ed -Update on my Nancy Jane Bean-Married to James Madison Sanders. She was born 1830 died 1916 in Memphis, TN.Had son, James M. Sanders, Jr. living in Memphis, TN- he died in 1924, Daughter Rachel Carrie Sanders m. William Fleming Montgomery- she died in yellow fever epidemic in Memphis in Oct. 1897; a daughter Mary Sanders Partee- no other info on her; and a son, William Walter or Walter William Sanders who lived in Marietta, Cobb Co., GA.I have been in contact with decendants of James M. Sanders, JR and Walter Sanders.
One of Walter's granddaughter's also relayed that there were Sanders on both sides of her grandparent's families.One line was James Madison Sanders1, Wm Walter Sanders2, Sadie Sanders Kuykendall3.On the other side it was William Richard Sanders1m. Jane Owen/Owin); their daughter, Rachel Sanders2 (m Wm. Moore), Mary Frances Moore3 who married Walter Wm. Sanders who in turn had Sadie Sanders (Kuykendall).Does this make sense?
In addition, William Walter or Walter William Sanders had another wife.Their children were William R, James M. and Elizabeth.Does this muddy the waters enough? Rita
