     Jane Liversidge Jane Liversidge (Stuart). In letter dated August 10th, 1870, from Mary Liversidge, her mother, to Henry Hargreaves in Australia: ``She married a young man called Thos. Stuart and they are liveing [sic] with us. They have no children. They are both runing [sic] four looms each'' I have several sworn statements (24 September 1927 and 17 April 1928) of Jane Stuart in a legal matter concerning the estate of Richard Hargreaves, son of Enoch. She wrote these at age 84 and was living at that time at 31 Wyre Grove, Blackpool, England. I obtained these statements from Jim Waddell via Colin Hargreaves on December 30, 1988.

Birth certificate spells her name Liversedge, but Liversidge appears in sister's birth certificate. Jane was born at Cheapside, Habergham Eaves, Burnley, Lancashire, England, on 26 June 1843.4 Her married name was Stuart.5 Jane died after 17 April 1928.

     Ephraim Liversidge In same letter as for his brother, we find that ``he has now been a soldier better than three years. He is know [sic] in India but he sends us a letter once a month to let us know how he is geting [sic] on.'' Sometimes the spelling is ``Ephriam''. In a letter to ``Cousin Stella'' sent to me by Jim Waddell via Colin Hargreaves on December 30, 1988, the first name is spelled Ephraim. Jim's cover letter states that the letterwriter might be Jane Stuart, but this is inconsistent with her being Ephraim's daughter.

His death certificate lists his occupation as "Tailor (Journeyman)". It also says "Of Gregson's L. H. Colne" under "Occupation". Ephraim was born at Cheapside, Habergham Eaves, Burnley, Lancashire, England, on 15 September 1848.4 Ephraim died on 17 February 1921 at 118 Briarcliff Road, Burnley, Lancashire, England, at age 72.5,3

This copy was made by a granddaughter of the writer 76 years after the original was written." Richard later came to New South Wales and lived at ``Burnley Cottage'', Neutral Bay (Sydney). Henry wrote his famous letter to Richard to console him on the death of Richard's child.

Richard's occupation is listed as "mechanic" in son Walter's birth certificate and his daughter Clara's death certificate.

     WILLIAM THOMAS "Billy Jaybird" SANDERS (SAUNDERS) William Thomas (Billy Jaybird) Sanders. Notes gathered by Alvy Smith [96] on 1990 visit to Pulaski, TN: "Sanders home - near Campbellsville - Giles County, Tennessee - on Big Creek. Big Spring - named by Indians - flows 3 million gallons per day - beginning of Big Creek. Sanders place around 500 acres - Jack White told this story - An old man told it to him. 'Sanders - a big man - strode through the canebrakes that would become Pulaski - he pledged to build a place there. Got in an argument with a man - they fought for hours - bloody and bleeding - then to a tavern - drank all night - next morning they came out arm in arm and became lifelong friends.' Jack remembers his daddy saying: 'Billy Jaybird Sanders is buried right up there with his wife, Betsie.' '' There are old records stored for safekeeping in the old court house of Wentworth, North Carolina (Rockingham County, north of Greensboro, NC). This may be a source of future information on Sanders.

The Bob Carter evidence mentions William (and James and Robert) Sanders in three Rockingham Co, NC deeds (on Great Rock House Creek) for 26 Nov 1800, 21 May 1810, and 14 Aug 1810. This is consistent with his leaving for TN ca 1812. Carter also lists a marriage bond for Robert Sanders, with William as bondsman, also in Rockingham, 28 Feb 1809, again consistent with the ca 1812 date.

More from this letter:

"I have checked the deeds and wills for Sanders and Bellanfants. Your Wm. Thomas Sanders born 1783 is likely the son of james Sanders, Sr. who settled on Rockhouse Creek by the 1770s. In 1782 he secured a state of N.C. land grant for 500 acres. He later built a grist mill on the property. By 1786 James was selling some of his land. In 1800 he sold "his son" William 363 acres. Now as Wm was only 17 years old this seems very young to receive this much land but this is what the deed says."

I have just looked at dozens of pages of the 1850 Census for Giles Co and these are the first "B"s I've seen listed for any family.

The 1840 Giles Co TN Census:

"Sanders, Wm., 1 M 10-15, 1 M 15-20, 1 M 20-30, 1 M 50-60, 1 F 10-15, 1 F 15-20, 1 F 40-50"
From the 1850 Census data:
William would be 58 M,
Elizabeth 55 F,
William 11 M.
From other data:
Mary 22 F
Minerva 17 F
This accounts for 1 M 10-15 and 1 M 50-60. Presumably the 1 M 15-20 and 1 M 20-30 would have left home by 1850, as would 1 F 10-15 and 1 F 15-20. By stretching (actually assuming a systematic mistake for females) Elizabeth would be the 1 F 40-50, Mary would be 1 F 15-20, and Minerva would be 1 F 10-15.

There is also a Duke Sanders in the 1840 Census, 20-30 M, and a John Sanders, also 20-30 M, who don't match with known Sanders kids. WILLIAM was born at Rockingham, North Carolina, USA, on 15 July 1783.5,6,7,8,9,3 He bought property at 363 acres on Great Rock House Ck, Rockingham, North Carolina, USA, on 26 November 1800.10 He married ELIZABETH C "Betsy" BELLENFANT at Rockingham, North Carolina, USA, on 26 March 1806.11,12,13,14,8 He moved circa 1812 at Williamson, Tennessee, USA.15 WILLIAM was listed as the head of a family on the in 1840 Census at Giles, Tennessee, USA.4 WILLIAM died in November 1874 at Giles, Tennessee, USA, at age 91.5,3 His body was interred at Pulaski, Giles, Tennessee, USA, at Abernathy Cemetery.5,3

     Lorenzo Dow Sanders (Saunders) Bellenfant Family:

"Lorenzo Dow Sanders, b. c1809 NC; farmer; deeded property 31 Dec 1859 to his "parents William Sanders and Elizabeth Sanders'' for use during their life. (Giles Co., Tn. Deed Book AA, p. 255); said to have gone to Mississippi to live. Perhaps soon after this land transaction. Wife Sarah, b. c1811, Tn. Giles Co. Tn. census of 1850 gave children ... . [Added in handwriting: Lorenzo D. Sanders married Sarah Spivey. This family moved to Lee Co. Miss]"

Additional info from Elizabeth Witt White 1/1997:"This family moved to Tupelo, Lee Co. Mississippi about 1860. Both are buried in the Beulah Smith Cemetery next to the Old Free Will Baptist Church about 8 miles north of Tupelo."

1850 TN Census, Giles Co, District 13:

"Lorenzo D. Saunders, age 41, sex M, profession (prof) Farmer, value of real estate 7800, place of birth (pob) NC
Sarah, 39, F, pob Tenn, over 20 and unable to read or write
William H., 19, M, prof Farmer, pob Tenn, attended school during year
George W., 13, M, pob Tenn, attended school during year
Joseph H., 11, M, pob Tenn, attended school during year
Airvetta H., 9, F, pob Tenn, attended school during year

Sarah E., 5, F, pob Tenn, attended school during year
Salona A., 4, F, pob Tenn, attended school during year
Josaphine, 2, F, pob Tenn
Robert, 28, M, prof Wagoner, pob Tenn"

The last entry is most likely his brother Robert who was born Aug 1821, TN who would have been 28 at census time.

1840 Giles Co TN Census:

"Sanders, L. D. 2 M 0-5, 1 M 5-10, 1 M 10-15, 1 M 20-30, 2 F 0-5, 1 F 20-30"

Using the 1850 census data:
Lorenzo D would be 31 M
Sarah 29 F
William H 9 M
George W 3 M
Joseph H 1 M
This accounts for 2 M 0-5, 1 M 5-10, 1 M 20-30 (with a stretch), and 1 F 20-30. The 1 M 10-15 would probably have left home by 1850. But the 2 F 0-5 in 1840 are unaccounted for in 1850. Lorenzo was born at Rockingham, North Carolina, USA, on 29 November 1808.4,5,6,7 He married Sarah "Sally" Spivy (Spivey) at Maury, Tennessee, USA, on 14 July 1829.5,8,9 Lorenzo was listed as the head of a family on the in 1840 Census at Giles, Tennessee, USA.3 He bought property at Giles, Tennessee, USA, on 31 December 1859.10 He moved circa 1860 at Tupelo, Lee, Mississippi, USA.11 Lorenzo died after 1860 at Tupelo, Lee, Mississippi, USA.12 His body was interred at Tupelo, Lee, Mississippi, USA, at Beulah Smith Cemetery.11

     Lucy E Sanders Bellenfant Family: "Lucy Sanders, b. c1810; m. - - - Parks; no known children." This is the total reference to her. It differs substantially from the other evidence. See below. The Parks marriage is iffy. See sister Minerva who did marry a Parks.

There is evidence that Yearly/Yearley/Early/Yelly Bolin/Bowlen/Bolling is her husband (or a 2nd husband). See Jo Ellis Email evidence, quoted below. NB. The evidence has become much stronger with the Jackson Bible evidence - see main text for husband Yearly Bolin.

"My late husband's 3rd great grandmother was a LUCY SAUNDERS/SANDERS b @1807 in NC. Around 1825-26 she married Yearley/Early/Yelly Bolin/Bowlen in presumably Giles Co. TN (Their first child was born there in 1826). Nothing has ever been mentioned that she wed before Mr. Bolin and we know she did not after his death.

"I tended to connect her to Wm and Elizabeth Bellenfant Sanders for several reasons. To my knowledge they were the only Sanders family in Giles in the early 1800's. Lucy was born in NC, the state they came from. Her age was right to be their daughter. She also named a son LORENZO DOW BOLIN. However I have no proof she is "your" Lucy.

"'My' Lucy married Mr. Bolin. They lived in Giles Co until shortly after 1850 when they moved to Stone Co, MO. Lucy and Yelly had 13 children which seemed to remain in the MO., TX, OK area.

Two unusual names that Lucy and Yelly named their twins were Tranquilla and Fountain Ella."

For what it's worth, Stone Co, MO is just across the stateline from Carroll Co, AR.
