George W. SANDERS b. 1838 AL, d. 1928 Prentiss MS
Posted by: Lola Ball (ID *****3826) Date: April 01, 2006 at 19:32:21
  of 216

I believe George W. Sanders is the brother of my gg/grandfather, James Marion Sanders. I have researched George's family in hopes that at some point I could make a connection. Everything I have to date is circumstantial, but I am sure they are brothers. I just need to document it either through a family descendant or records. So far I have neither.

Any information that might connect to this family would be appreciated.
