Sorry Cathay, I won't be around for a while.  Parents aren't too well health wise at the moment, and so I would prefer to stay close if I can.

We should definitely meet up at some time though.

Hello Jenny. 

If you're looking at the 1911 census, then it would appear that you're my second cousin.  Your grandfather Christopher was my grandmother Phoebe's younger brother.  From the information I have, there were four more children born after this census was taken.  Genty in 1911, Louie in 1918, Henry in 1915, and Edward in 1918.

My grandmother Phoebe - line 3 on the census, married Noah Hughes and had two children, Harriet (named after her mother) and Edward - my father, named after her youngest brother.  Incidentally, Christopher and Phoebe's brother Moses - line 4 on the census, appears to have married Noah's sister Polly Hughes. 

I believe that there are still Sanders' living around the Stibb Cross area.

Cathay is the fount of all knowledge as far as I'm concerned, but feel free to get in touch if you like.

All the best

Ian
