I am looking for any info concerning my great grandfather, John Sanders, born May 1881 in Illinois and later moved to, O'Brien, Iowa and his relatives. His children were named, Nellie M. Sanders, John M. Sanders ( my grandfather )Roy Sanders, Luella Sanders, Frank Sanders, Jay Sanders, Don Sanders, Floyd Sanders, Gertrude A. Sanders, Della P. Sanders. John M. Sanders children were, Everett L. Sanders ( my father )Delores Sanders and Lois Sanders.
I never knew my fathers family and would just like to know about my cousins and where they all moved to. I would appreciate any help.

Hello, Sorry, I don't think I can help you. My Sanders names aren't the same as yours. I have a George Dana Sanders who married my great Aunt Thomasina Sloan from Ireland in 1894. They had a William Reynolds Sanders, Gertrude, Eva and a Sarah. I can't find anything for any of them beyond 1940 USA Census. These Sanders were Canadian. Good luck in your search.

oh my goodness! my ancestors are canadian and I haven't been able to get very far. Maybe we have a connection? The farthest I go is Eason Sanders, married Louisa Church...have you come across those names at all?

Hello, sorry, those names don't appear with my findings , these Sanders seem to be very hard to track down, my trail has run cold at 1940 Census. Eva Sanders married a policeman, Russell Holmes Thomas and that's as far as I can go with her I'm afraid. Ruth

No I'm sorry. Most of my clan lived mostly in O'brien, Iowa. A lady who posted on my thread, Ruth has the Sanders family from Canada. Maybe she could be of help to you.
Thank you very much for your post!
