You mentioned that you lost track of Susan after the 1860 census. Here is some information I have found on Susan and her family.

Here is information I have for Thomas Sessions and Susan McLemore:

1900 AL Chambers Co pg 58A [ED04-16A], he is listed "Sessions, Thomas G 74 wd b Dec 1825 GA/SC/SC farmer, rents farm # 285" as father of M Richards 47 wd.

Here is another listing which appears to be Thomas' wife Susan:
1900 AL Lee Co pg 266 [ED45-05B] Beat 10, Phenix City [South W RR] [ED 45-5B] 2nd June
Line 63 152 Third Avenue H91/F97 Sessions, Sarah 69 wd 10ch/3liv b Nov 1830 AL/AL/AL rents house

son Early 28 single b May 1872 AL/AL/AL slationary[sp?] engineer
servant Washington, Mary [black] 45 b Apr 1855 AL/GA/GA
[NOTE: Could this Sarah 69 be Susan? The three children match the children of Susan and Thomas G Sessions. Thomas G is listed with a daughter, Martha. Could Thomas G and Susan have been separated or divorced and somehow were listed as widow and widower? They had been listed in Lee Co., AL in 1880.]

Susan's name on her daughter, Ella's death certificate [1926] is given as "Susie McLemore".

1910 AL Chambers Co pg 024B [ED17-2B], he is listed "Sessions, Thomas G 83 wd b GA/SC/SC" as father of Martha Richards 57 wd.
