1850, Tishomingo Co., Ms Census, 4th No. Div., pg. 13, #161:
J.W. SAUNDERS, age 50, farmer, b. NC with wife, NANCY, b. abt. 1804, Tn. Children: JAMES, b. abt. 1825, Tn; JONAS/JOSIAS, b. abt. 1827, Tn, WILLIAM, b. abt. 1829, Tn; SUSAN, b. abt. 1831, Tn; ADALINE, b. abt. 1833, Tn; NANCY, b. abt. 1835, Al; JOHN, b. abt. 1837, Al; GEORGE, b. abt. 1838, Al; JACOB, b. at. 1840, Al; MANDY, b. abt. 1843, Al; ISAAC, b. abt. 1845, Al; MARY, b. abt. 1848, Ms.

In the 1860, Tishomingo, Ms Census on pg. 240, Jacinto P.O. are found:
Wm. P. Sanders, b. 1829, Tn (confirmed sibling of James M. Sanders); James M. Sanders, b. 1827, Tn (confirmed as my gg=grandfather); Jonas/Josias Sanders, b. 1828, Tn., who has living with him, Jacob W. Sanders, b. 1840, Al.
I believe these men to be the sons of John W. and Nancy Sanders as shown in the 1850 Tishomingo census.

JOHN and NANCY SANDERS/SAUNDERS are found again in 1880, Prentiss Co., MS, after the county boundary changes of 1870, living with their son George (G.W.) Sanders family:

Wm. P. Sanders, b. 1829, TN, is a confirmed sibling to my gg=grandfather, James M. Sanders, b. 1827, TN. Wm. P. Sanders married Sarah Jane (Hunter) Jones, a widow of Robt. Jones, in Burnsville, Tishomingo, MS. She, as a widow, is found in 1880, as is my James M. Sanders, living in the same precinct of Fannin Co., TX. She and Wm. P. Sanders are the confirmed parents of a daughter, Donna Zera Sanders. Donna Zera Sanders married Richard Maxwell Pyle, Jr. After Donna Zera's death, her cousin, Elvira Cleopatra (Patra) Sanders Swink, daughter of James M. Sanders, married Richard Maxwell Pyle, Jr.
You will note a Donna Z. listed as a child of George W. Sanders in the 1880 Prentiss, MS census.

James M. (Marion?) and Ladonia/Lavonia (Holland) Sanders
Children: Nancy E., Wm. Thomas, John C., Elvira C., Francis L., Sarah A., Marion W., Elijah, Robt. Perry, Mary Ann.
All born in MS between abt. 1852 and 1872.

I am lookiing for connections to tie this family together. Any information re: these Sanders families or others mentioned would be appreciated. Thank you.

Other families connected to my Sanders family:
Holland, Maples, Nave, Siniard, Swink, Pyle
