Surname/tag: Sanderson Andrews Walker escaped_convict prison Alabama Tennessee Louisiana aliases return_to_prison_1924
The goal of this project is to find out where Jesse and his family lived during the 16 years as a fugitive before his return to prison.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Jenn Sanders. Jesse Sanderson was my husband's paternal great-grandfather. He had a wife and 1 year old daughter before he was convicted of murder in 1902, and escaped from Louisiana state prison in 1906. He lived under the name John A. Andrews for 16 years before recaptured in 1924 and died in 1926 (cause of death unknown).
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- find wife Daisy (Walker) death information
- Learn more about how their life was during that time
- Find out where his sons lived on and off and who they lived with during those times
Jesse's son Ernest rarely spoke about his life during that time, so there is a lot of curiosity about what happened in his childhood. There are a lot of unanswered questions.
