Dear Saunders families,
I am desperately looking for the following Saunders family.
Looking for family of Harold Chester Saunders
Great Great Grandfather Henry E Saunders Born in Nova Scotia July 1839 Married Ida O who was born Feb.1857
Children Geroge H born 1867 in Machias,Maine
Willie T born 1871 in Machias, Maine
Frank H born 1872 in Machias Maine
Charles C Born 1875 in Machias Maine
SAmuel H Bron October 1879 in Machias,Maine
Harold Chester Born 20th FEb 1885 Machias, Maine
This is my husbands grandfather. We are interested in any records or info.
Fannie C born Sept. 1887 Machias,Maine
Herbert D bornDec.1889 Machias ,Maine
This info was apparently taken from a census.
Harold Chester Saunders left home boarded a ship at 14 years old (this could have been around 1899 not sure )as deckhand and came over on the ship to South Africa. They docked at CApe Town where he decided to stay.
Her married AMy Matilda Wakeford in South Africa and had three girls. Dorothy, Murial and Evelyn.
Any information would be appreciated.
