One last try to get this thing right!
I went back to the 1900 census and found that the index mistakenly listed this Sanderson as Jasper, but it appears to be James, with his wife, Ellen. The census taker wrote in the box, but you can see that the letters "per" after "Jas" could not be there. It seems to be that he abbreviated James. In addition, I looked at 1910 and found James and Ellen, his wife, and the ages match. A little confusion exists over Ellen's middle initial, and the spelling of their daughter's name - but you know how that goes.
In the 1910 census, by the way, at the top, in the institution blank, the taker wrote: Central Mississippi Institute, followed by more words I can't interpret. However, this is not the census in which any "students" are listed. Don't know about this, but it could be a lead.
This is also in French Camp, Choctaw County, MS.
