"Looking for great-grandfathers and other ancestors of THOMAS CLINT SANDERSON."

Journal by sherriebrat

I know my grandfather Thomas Clint Sanderson was a sheriff in Alabama, but I don't know when or where. I know his father was William Marion Sanderson. I would like to trace their family to the origin of entry into America. I believe they originally are Scottish or English.

I hope someone has some information.

HI SHERRIE.

I am also researching the Sanderson Family and found out that there are several Sanderson's who emigrated to America, South Africa, Australia & New zealand. My side of the Family originated from the North East of England mostly Yorkshire. York in fact, of which I am a Freeman of the City. Handed down from Generation to Generation. so alot of family tree history was found there on records.
I will have a look through the information I have at hand to see if there is any mention of your ancesters. Hoping I can find out information for you soon.

Hi Sheerie.

I am unsure what you know, but I am sending you what I know:-

THOMAS CLINTON SANDERSON. BORN 05/12/1888 DIED 12/24/1953 MARRIED Cora Melvin Davis in Itawamba, MS.

His Father WILLIAM MARION SANDERSON MARRIED VIOLA FLORENCE YOUNG.and had several children including THOMAS CLINTON. HERE THEY ALL ARE:-

Sister...LELA ELDORA SANDERSON
Sister...MINNIE LEONA SANDERSON ( BECAME WILSON)
Brother..Walter Cleton Sanderson
Brother..Archie Dalton Sanderson
Brother..Marvin Cletus Sanderson
Brother..William Kelly Sanderson
Sister...Mellie Josia Sanderson ( became IRVINE)
Sister...Mertice May Sanderson (became SHOTTS)
Sister...Flora Belle Sanderson (became SHOTTS)
Sister...Ora Cedera Sanderson (became LINDSEY)
Brother..Dolphus Verlin Sanderson
Sister...Cora Viola Sanderson

William Marion Sanderson's parents:- John Marion Sanderson. Born03/05/1840 in Marion Co. AL
Died 06/14/1864 ( age 24) in Memphis, Shelby Co. TN

Mother:- Rebecha Kiziah Donham. After John's death Rebeecha remarried. New Husband being Dillmus Ware Stone no record of any other children.
so going by this it was before 1840 when the Sanderson's came over to the Americas. If we can find out who John Marions Parents are we might get it. I will carry on researching. Regards From Brian Sanderson in England. email. briansanderson75@googlemail.com
