Randy,
Hannah Sanderson was also my 7th great grandmother by way of her son Jonathan. My great grandmother was Ella Pearl Stearns. I was wondering if you have any stories of Hannah or the Sanderson family?

Randy,
I write a blog called The Family Connection, wwwjeaniesgenealogy.com. I am currently in a heated, but friendly dispute over the identity and family of Edward Sanderson of Watertown, with another researcher by the name of Kevin Sanderson. I was hoping we might interest you in our research and weigh in on our findings. As you are also related to this common ancestor, you could help us get his story right. Jeanie
