Mary Jane Hollingsworth Sanders


Mary Jane Hollingsworth was the daughter of Eli Hollingsworth and Mary Baughzel Russel. She was born on 15 Dec 1846 in Vermillion, Indiana, USA[7, 8].

When she was 3 she appears on the1850 Census, Vermillion County, Indiana, with parents Eli and Mary Hollingsworth. Her residence in 1860 was Helt Township, Vermillion County, Indiana. [9] . Her siblings Anna and Zimri are still at home.

This small picture was labeled by her daughter, Eda Sanders and is marked 1859, aged 16.

This may be Harriet Singleton Sanders (George’s mother) or Mary Jane Hollingsworth.  No name was on the photo. The clothes appear to belong to an Indian. Harriet Singleton Sanders was 1/2 Cherokee, her mother being married to John Singleton. A large 15 x 24 framed copy and the small copy are known.
