My Grandfather was Coy Sanders. He was killed in 1929 in Bernie, Missouri. I am looking for any information on his family. He married Allie Ray, b. May 22, 1908, d. September 4, 1954, she is the daughter of William Jasper Ray Nancy "Bessie" Elizabeth Hogge. They had 3 children Coylene and Wanda, died as very young children, and Edna Mae Sanders, my mother, b.May 9, 1926. The official story is he got drunk and walked in front of a train in Bernie, MO. The family believes he was murdered for the money he had on him, he had come to Bernie to Collect a debt, the money was gone when he was found, the night before he was found he had called his family saying he had collected the money. The family was living in Destin, Florida at this time. He had made the trip to collect money owed them from the sale of the phone company.
