Yep, we have that Saunders connection thru Ruth Saunders Stoner. Your uncle was probably working at one of the steel mills along the Monongahela River. Weren't most of your Saunders from Washington, PA area?

Toni, When I came online back in 1996 there were many good mailing lists. 2 were the Fayette County list and the Pennsylvania mailing lists. This was prior to Rootsweb taking over. Check out

This is the one for Fayette County. And the one for PA in general should also be helpful. There is also one for Washington County.

Here is the one from Pennsylvania-
