Raised by his mother. Married Candis M. Hall 19 Nov 1860. Had 5 hildren with her and two children with his first wife Mary E. Thompson who died 25 december 1910.

I am having trouble confirming his parents. In his obit it talks about his mother Susan.

"Tennessee, Death Records, 1914-1955," database with images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 8 July 2015), Thomas J. Sanders, 25 Feb 1916; citing Cemetery, Dyer Co., Tennessee, v 14 cn 43, State Library and Archives, Nashville; FHL microfilm 1,299,651. This doesn't name his mother, but gives his father as Tom Sanders, who was born in Mississippi.

Yes, I have that information but there are multiple Thomas Sanders records in Mississippi. I hope to confirm Thomas W. Sanders vs Thomas A. Sanders and would love to know whether his mother Susan was Susan Woolen or Susan Bagdet.

Due to the common name of Tom, there are many possibilities.


Thanks for your help.
I have Susan Bagdet as his mother, she was born in 1813. Also Thomas was a Pvt. and a Veteran. He inlisted in 1862 and was discharged in 1865.
