My Mother is the Daughter of James Oscar Sanderson. His mother was Amanda(Mandy) Elizabeth Sanderson(he was born out of wedlock). Mandy's father was Major Franklin Sanderson with his first wife Nancy Hope(or Hopp) Sanderson. Nancy died in or about 1870 of complications after child birth. My mother and Aunts remember Amanda well. I have not been to NC in years but have been to Major's grave. I have no idea what happened to Major's brother (Henry) who was living with him in the 1870 census and served with him in the Civil war. Major was also an illegitamite child. His grandfather was Ephriam Sanderson who owned land in the Woodington area as far back as 1780's. He had two known daughters and atleast one son. The family line is a bit confusing and although my father was from Wilmington and my mother from Lenoir county I only lived in that area the last two years of High School after my father retired from the Military. I did spend some of my summer vacations on my grandparents' farm in Deep Run with my grandmother. She was a wealth of information being born in 1898. Her name was Lona Jarmen Sanderson, wife of James Oscar Sanderson.
