Sandy Senter - Nov 11
Sandford "Sandy" Senter was my great-great-great-great-grandfather. He was born 190 years ago on Nov 11, 1816 in Sumner, TN. He was thr third of ten children born to Richard and Elizabeth (Hunt) Senter. Sandy married Mary Jones in Tennesee and the couple had seven children -Thomas, William, Nancy, Julia, John, Jane and Frances. The couple, along with Sandy's parents moved from Tennessee to Wayne County Illinois in about the 1850s. Theier daughter, Jane, was the mother of May (Wilson) Bunnell.
Sandy died March 24, 1888 in Wayne County. Shown in this post is the memorial card given out at his funeral. While I amnot certain of where he is buried, I can tell you that his parents, Richard and Elizabeth, are buried in the Bunker Cemetery at Rinard, and the stones are still there.
