  1. Looking for any info on a Cleo Orlando Sanders (“Uncle Blackie” in our family).
    Was married to Nellie Elizabeth Blue in Kansas but he apparently died at age 41 so there is little information available.
    Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Cheers –

  2. I believe I descend from Thompson Sanders. Nakie Lee. I have very little information. I would appreciate any help I can get.

  3. They say it is lumbee tribe but government back in the day tried to call them cherokee but there seems to be a mixture of races invoved…just trying to get the straight of it. These people are from my dad’s side.

    1. Bethany Hernandez

      I’m a descendant of Walter Chamber Sanders. Do you have any more information on this? I’ve not been able to find out very much about our native heritage, other than the Sanders family went through the trail of tears.

    1. Mae on annie, my grandmother. Initial c ( corlister maybe) for nannie who married a lum, my great grandmother and also nannie as a nickname for Minnie Elizabeth Sanders, my aunt.
