On Oct 1 1867 in Jackson County, Alabama Probate Court, John G. Sanders was appointed guardian of George W., Mary, M. F., & Martha Hinshaw, heirs of Joseph.15 It seems that the Joseph mentioned was probably Mary Ann's father, Joseph Sanders,.16 It is unclear why a guardian would have been appointed - it might be concluded that Jasper and his wife might have died before 1867.16
Jasper might have also been married to a Georgiana --; see Elizabeth Henshaw #16508 who might be an additional child.
