There are two other questions to which I do not have a definite answer. One is the question of her maiden name: Saunders or Sanders. It may have been one of those names that is spelled one way or another on different occations. For what it is worth, I have been using Sanders.
The other question is her mother's maiden name: Dutton or Penniman.
