Mary Dale Sanders is my Grandmother. I have no idea what happened to John (in 188o census) but, she had two other young brothers. Thompson(born July 1886) and Jesse(born 1888) that lived with her and Thomas in 1900. They were in Arkansas, Jackson Co. Mary's name is spelled wrong there. I can't find the brothers in the later census. One of their grandsons looked my dad up, probley early 1980's. He said they lived around Memphis.
