I am searching for information about Bettie Sanderlin who married Thomas D. Hunt in Cheatham Co., TN in 1873. According to a descendent Bettie was born in TN in 1843. If anyone has information on her or these following Sanderlins and allied families, it would be a great help.
The following is what I've found so far:

A search of the 1850 census found the following family with a daughter whose name and age match. No other matches have yet been found:

1850 Shelby County TN District 1 Roll m432-895 p. 134 A.

D.M. Sanderlin 40 b. NC
Lucretia Sanderlin 19 b. Tn
*Elizabeth Sanderlin 6 b. Tn
Willis Sanderlin 17 b. Tn
Lavinia Sanderlin 14 b. Tn
Sarah Sanderlin 12 b. Tn
William Sanderlin 10/12 b. Tn
William Johnson 29 b. Tn.

I did not find this family in Shelby Co. in 1860. A nationwide search on Ancestry.Com for Sanderlins with these names led to North Carolina

1860 N.C. Census Camden Co.

Willis Sanderlin 28
Elizabeth Sanderlin 29
Jonathan Sanderlin 6
William Sanderlin 4
Elizabeth Sanderlin 16
Samuel/Lemuel Sanderlin 19

According to Family D.M. Sanderlin married Mary Ward 30 March 1842 in Shelby Co. TN. A researcher on genforum stated that D.M. is Dempsy M. Sanderlin (brother to McChristy Sanderlin) and after his wife, Mary, died he married again to Lucretia Seward. No dates were given.

It is likely that Mary Ward is the mother of Elizabeth Sanderlin age 6 on the 1850 census. Since Willis, Lavinia, and Sarah are much older, I assume that Dempsy M. Sanderlin had a wife before Mary or he was raising the children of relatives. Lucretia might be the mother of William.

Also living in Shelby Co., TN (but in District 7)in 1850 is the following family:

Joseph Ward 43 M b. Va.
Martha Ward 27
Mary Swanson 10
Mary Sanderlin 7 b. Tn
Virginia Ward 3 b. Tn
Martha Ward 66 b. Va.
William Payno 18 pupil
Edwin Buck overseer search engine for 1870 found an Elizabeth Sanderlin age 26 in Courthouse, Camden Co., N.C. Roll M 593-1127 p. 112. I could not access the page to see the listing itself, however.

In 1880, Thomas D. Hunt is listed as a widower on the Cheatham Co. TN. census index.

On, I found the following marriage dates:

Lavinia Sanderlin m. William Johnson (b. 1826) on Jan 15, 1851 in Shelby Co.TN

Sarah E. Sanderlin m. H.M. Blake on 21 Jan 1856. I am not sure if this is the daughter of D.M. Sanderlin or his brother John McChristy Sanderlin and Harried Leary who have a daugther named Sarah Ellen.

Thanks so much!
