My Dad Herbert Victor Sinift was born in Perry
Co., Ohio in 1918., he was the son of James
Sinift and Mary Catharine Musser. James was
the son of Jacob and Elizabeth Sanderson Sinift. One of James older half sisters or a cousin Elizabeth Sinift married a ? Sanderson and they moved from Perry County to Pauling Co., Ohio.
I will look for the year of their marriage,, I think it was during the 1830s.
I do not know when they moved to Paulding
My GGrandmother Elizabeth has been hard to
trace, she married my GGrandfather when she
was around 40 and he was a widower around 61
years old. They had two sons, only one survived
infancy my,Grandfather James B about 1863.
I do not know if Elizabeth was born a Sanderson
or had been married and widowed when she married
Jacob Sinift. Many members of the (Senft) Sinift family, moved to Paulding County, Ohio. I do not
know the time of the move, but recently I have
found out many family members from connected
lines also made the move. Some being, Sinift, Sanderson, Swartz, Elder and I am finding other
familiar names. I'm pretty sure my Father Herbert Sinift can be found there on the 1930 census, after his parents both died. He lived with relatives there breifly before moving with a brother to Michigan.
I feel its very possible your Sandersons may
be connected to those in Perry Co., Ohio and
like the rest of the Perry County Sandersons
are related to General George Sanderson.
While scrolling through the posts I noticed the
Lehman family name, the Lehmans were also related
to the Senft/Sinift/Siniff family and you had a
post from a Householder who also were intermarried with the Sinifts..
Could you look at the 1900 census for the Sinift
name?? Original spelling was Senft which means
mustart in German. So many spellings came from
the original including Sinift, Siniff, Seniff,
