I have been fascinated reading these posts. I am not sure where I fit into these lines but several posts REALLY rang out to me. My gg-gmother, Alma Sanders (married William Wampler)b 1878- 1949 in Texas) lived near and had MANY extended family members in and around the Upshur, TX area. (I still live only a couple hours drive from there) My dad grew up spending most of his time with the Sanders/Wamplers and has great memories. I also have several pictures of Alma and even one of her brother Vollie and if stereotypes hold ANY water at all (as far as looks go) they are CLEARLY NA... though we already knew that since she is descended from Theodocia Blake.
Someone mentioned a DRURY SANDERS. She had an grandfather named Drury (B 1795 in Alabama D 1878 in Marlin,Falls, TX) as well as named one of her sons DRURY (Wampler) I have many pics of this family as well as have my dad a few blocks away with tons of information ready to share. He did tell me that one of Alma's sisters, known to most as "Sis" was a well known "reader" and people would come from all over to get a reading from her (though most wouldnt ever dare admit it) and that the NA stuff regarding the family has always been assumed but never discussed. Other family members have told me that they have family reporting hearing relatives speaking in native tongue when they thought they were alone. (My dad is a Morris and same story from that side as well).
I can be reached any time at cnkrush@sbcglobal.net The attached pic is one I posted on Ancestry.com and own the original. It is of Alma Sanders with her grandson Dannie Morris in Vernon, TX
