Looking For Saunders
Posted by: Leon Weekley (ID *****3979) Date: August 11, 2002 at 21:37:26

I am looking for any info on the relatives (parents/grandparents) of my Great Great Grandmother, Susan Elizabeth Saunders.

Susan Elizabeth Saunders was born 26 Nov 1843 and died 22 Aug 1894 in Andrew Co., Missouri. She is buried in Dysart Cemetery in Andrew Co., Missouri.

Susan Elizabrth Saunders married 2 times. 1st marriage was to John Finley Dysart. Susan was widowed in 1872 because of John's death. She remarried 2nd to Johnston D. Carson (My GG Grandfather) in 1876 and had 7 children. They had my Great Granmother Georgia Ann Carson in 1884, Andrew Co.

Susan and her family lived around Andrew Co. and Buchanan Co., Missouri.

This is what I know of the Saunders that Susan Elizabeth was kin too:

1. Susan's daughter, Lalla (Carson) Weldon wrote that her mother had 4 or 5 brothers, and that that they all had black hair and brown eyes.

2. Susan Elizabeth was related to a woman named "Ell Saunders." Perhaps it was her sister, or a sister-in-law. I have a picture of Susan's daughters, Lalla and Georgia Carson, with "Aunt Ell Saunders" as written on the back. There are also some people in the picture with the last name of Harmon.

3. I think one of the Saunders in Susan's family owned a photo studio in Lexington, Missouri (Lafayette Co.) named "Saunders." The reason I say this is because I have a picture of johnston d. Carson, and it has this on the border of the picture. I would think there is a connection.

4. My Grandmother (Susan's granddaughter)says that she hear that the Saunders family came from Italy. My Grandmother did not ever know her Grandmother though.

I really need some help. Thanks in advance for any info anyone can give me.
