I am looking for clues to my GGG Grandfather's roots.
His name was George W. Saunders. His headstone has his birth date as November 16, 1822, and he died on March 27, 1892, in Banquete, Nueces County, Texas. He was married to Sarah Watters Wright on April 3, 1860.
A Texas 1930 Jim Hogg county census for one of his sons, James Columbus Saunders, shows his father's birthplace as Kentucky.
As well as James, his other children were
Josephine Cook Saunders (my GGgrandmother)
Mary Ann Saunders
Sarah & Susie (twins)
Will M. Saunders
