I'm having trouble locating any more information on my great-grandfather Harvey SANDERS b. abt 1866 in Ky according to a few census records I have found.
According to family he went AWOL (stealing Army horses and selling them with other horses to profit?)and changed his name to Harvey SANDERS to perhaps avoid hanging. According to one of his children they were on a visit to KY or TN to visit his (Harvey's) mother and she addressed him as Silas HOOVER. The only information I have on him is his married life in ND and MN.
If anyone has run across this name don't hesitate to reply.
Thanks for the help,
