Surnames: Sanders Lyon Majors
Hello , I am David Majors. My gg-grand mother was Sarah Sanders (1855) from AL. Her father was Hiram. She married 'Majors' there, then moved w/ her grandparents "John Francis" to Ark. , along with a friend "Henry Lyon" . Been trying to find a relative that mite have a history in the area, they settled near Hampton. But the Majors moved, and alot didn t get passed down. Just wondering if anyone chronicled the trip to Ark., has stories or pics. from that era.

Hi! My Sanders are from Tennessee and Mississipi, but I am answering this because you mentioned a Hiram. That name recurs several times in my Sanders file. Do you have any sibling information on Hiram? Where was he from? Any siblings of Sarah? There are a lot of Sanders in middle to south Alabama but they are not related to my Sanders. Thanks!

Thx for reply, Her parents were 'Hiram Almon & Zilpha'. They evidently died in Jackson co., Al. Her g-parents John F. & Cynthia, moved to Ark. They also
had daugh., Martha (Higgs) and Ann (Proctor). The other mentioned 'Henry Lyon' had a g-son 'Risley' that became Mayor of Hampton,AR. The Majors ended up in Pike co.,Ar with an Uncle ,'James G. Sanders'. Thx for any add. info. Dave

Have you researed the Sanders Siftings newsletters? The man who compiled them was specifically looking for Jackson County Alabama Sanders. His name is Don Schaefer. They are not indexed, but he will burn you a CD if you ask. He has several entries on this board.I'll keep looking for my Hirams! Sally

David, you may already have this information, but Ed Sanders (1928-2010) of Searcy, Arkansas, was a descendant of John Francis Sanders (1805-1875. He posted the following to the Sanders L-List list, March 2004: "My great great grandfather, John Francis SANDERS, was born in NC, married in Guilford NC to Cintha HARRIS on 03 Jul 1821, moved to Jackson Co, AL, before 1850. He purchased a farm in Calhoun Co, AR in May of 1873, and apparently went back to AL to gather a crop, paint his wagons and move his family. He brought 7 ox wagons to AR and got their occupants settled on the land by November when he recorded his deed in the courthouse in Hampton." I do not know who has access to any family research done by Ed, but Ed corresponded with Don Schaefer several times, so maybe Don can help you find further information about the details of the migration from Alabama to Arkansas.

Thx very much, Gary & Richard, for the interesting info.
I'll follow leads as far as i can. The 'Majors' kinda got lost in the shuffle for 10 yrs there. thx.

May be a descendant of the 'Lyon' family still around also?

From what I received from Ed Sanders, he had nothing for Hiram Almond Sanders, son of John Francis, (but the name and birth year) but much information on many other children.
Go to Gary Sanders' web site: http://home.earthlink.net/~garybsanders/ for other information on John Francis. In particular, read "Francis and Rachel Sanders of Jackson County, Alabama," "Benjamin and Francis, Who Moved to Alabama," and "Benjamin Saunders (abt 1766-abt 1849) of Montgomery and Randolph." Also, read any other articles that look like connections. Gary does an excellent job of researching, then putting research into readable information.
