My name is Mekia Wray and I'm doing the ancestry for my adoptive daughter Mackenzie Sanders. Technically, in just a few days, she will no longer be a Sanders. She's changing her whole name. She does not have any pictures or information on her past, and I would like to put this all together so that one day, if she wants to know more, I can give this all to her.
Her grandfather was B H Sanders, died in 1984. I did find that he was a sheriff at one time. He has a son Jackie Ray Sanders, born in 1956, Mackenzie's biological father. There's been several stories floating around whether he's alive or not. His mother, B H Sanders' wife, is a mystery. The lady at DCS said he may have said Annie Ruth was her name, but I can't find anything on a wife for B H at all.
Does anyone have any pictures, info, etc for this part of the family? I'd be willing to talk to someone on the phone, email, text, however I can find any information to put up for her. I'm afraid that once her name changes, even on her birth certificate, that if someone were to one day look for her, they won't be able to find her. :(
