I hope you are still interested in this information. I saw your posting about a year ago and didn't answer it at the time as I couldn't find the information I had on Mary. When I finally found it, I couldn't find you message. I have just rediscovered it today.

I don't have too much information but here it is:

I am descended from Frances O'BRYANT and William Carter CAMPBELL. Their fifth (fourth if you don't count Mary) chld Ann (b. 1 Apr 1866 in Tin Top, TX d. 2 Nov 1934 in Weatherford, TX m. 10 June 1889 in Weatherford, TX to James STEWART) is my great grandmother.

Frances O'BRYANT b. 18 May 1836 in IL, probably Peoria,
d. 17 May 1920 in Weatherford, TX m. James SANDERS in Uvalde Co. TX before 1855. Mary Elizabeth SANDERS was born 1855-57 possibly in Shelby Co. but I think she was born in Uvalde Co.
James divorced Frances for adultery about 1858. I think this also took place in Uvalde Co. I have a bad copy of the divorce proceedings but I cannot find any date on it. She was said to have married William Carter CAMPBELL in 1858 but there is speculation and a family story that they were not actually married until about 1880. They had 9 children together.
Mary was left with James according to the divorce proceedings but I know she grew up with the Campbell family. I have no idea when she went to them or under what circumstances.
Mary married James HUNTER 5 August 1883 in Parker Co. TX, probably Weatherford but I am not sure. The minister presiding was W.H. STEWART my gggrandfather and Ann CAMPBELL's father-in-law. I have a copy of that certificate. The family maintained that the couple moved to Kerr Co. TX but I have never been able to find any indication of that.
This is all I know complete with speculations. I would love to find out more about Mary and Jim.
Could you tell me who James SANDERS parents were?

Hope this helps a little.
