Some Very Brief Family History

William C. Sanders was born in around November of 1890 in Butler County, Missouri. He married Clara Francis Brown in Dunklin County, MO in June of 1910. Clara was born in April of 1892. William Charles "Pappy" Sanders and Clara Francis Brown had four children:

  • Drucella Sanders married V.H. Davidson July 9, 1931
  • James Virgil Sanders married Jeweldean Bolden
  • Obel Omega Sanders married Nora Pearl Alliston
  • Willis A. Sanders (died as a baby)
    • The Davidsons had five children that I'm aware of. They are Paul, Vernon, William, Jess, and a daughter Nelda.

      James "Virgil" Sanders and Jeweldean had ten kids. Their names are Meyer, Edmund Dewalin, Marjorie, Jerris, Genotra (Jenny), Carol, James (Jim), Thomase Daniel (Boone), Bonnie, and Virgil (Butch).

      Obel and Nora had three children; Willis, Shirley, and Karen

      I believe William and Francis had another son name Willis that died as a baby. I visited a grave marker at the Pine City Cemetery near Holcomb, Mo. Willis Sanders was buried there, born on 19 June, 1923 and died August 27, 1924.

      There are many more children and grandchildren, more than I know about. If you get the chance to attend the family reunion, it would be great to compare notes about the family.
