This person is my great grandfather, but I know nothing else about his parents. I do know that he said he was born in Dyer County, TN in 1825. I am not sure that their records were great in that day since it was just being taken over from Indian Territory. I do know that he married Mary Jane Wynne in 1846 in Gibson TN and have found out a lot about the Wynne Family. Elijah and Mary emigrated to TX where she died in about 1861-no burial records found. I would really like to know which branch of the many Sanders clans he came from. His folks came from NC to KY first and then to Dyer County TN.
Could anyone have any info about this person. He was born in Rupperswil, Aargau, Switzerland in 1857. I think I found his immigration to the states on 7 Aor 1881. His father Rudolph, Sr. died in Switzerland in 1880. He had 2 younger sisters, Louisa and Elzabeth who also immigrated to USA. He married Elizabeth Beck in CA in 1908, but I can't figure out his date of death or any other information about him. Did his sister, Louisa, come to CA with him. I know that sister Elizabeth came to Fayette County, TX when she was only 11-12 years old.
