The following information came from the research Margaret Saunders O'Connell did on the Saunders genealogy.

The Saunders genealogy on the paternal side goes like this:

Sarah Page, (2) Hannah Tewksbury.
Henry Saunders, born 1688, Haverhill-Salem, N.H. married Mary Mitchell.
Timothy Saunders, born 1720, married Judith Rowell.
Timothy Saunders, born 1751, Salem N.H. - Nova Scotia married Martha Neilly.
Obadiah Saunders, born 1797, Nova Scotia married Catherine
Obadiah Belmont Saunders, born 1844, Nova Scotia married (1)
Caroline Atkins; (2)'Margaret Ann Lloyd.

Margaret O'Connell mentions in her notes that she would like to make another trip to Haverhill and Salem, N.H. as she is "stuck11 on a James Saunders of Haverhill, born 1843. She wondered who his parents were and only knew that he was a servant in Ipswich when he was a young boy. His home, now a horse farm, is still standing in Haverhill

Dorothy Starrett writes that when her mother (Auntie Do) and husband Clyde visited in Nova Scotia in 1907 they called on two old lady aunts who lived "up on the mountain." One of them smoked a pipe which made quite an impression on her mother.
