Generation No. 1

1. JOHN  1 SANDERS of Nansemond Co. Virginia, the progenitor of this Sanders family,  married Phoebe ______.     He patented land in 1681 with two other men  which was partly in Nansemond and partly in Isle of Wight counties.  By tracing this land in deeds and it's descent , three of their children  were named in the deeds, WILLIAM SANDERS, JOHN SANDERS, JR.,  RICHARD SANDERS,  and a fourth son whose name may have been  FRANCIS.  John Jr. passed some of the land to his son, ROBERT.     After the death of  John Sanders, date unknown, his wife Phoebe married (2)  WILLIAM CURLE of Nansemond Co. Va.   She was still living in 1706.  For more details on these records,  please see the web page of Frances Cullom Harper : http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~fcharper/theory.html

   Go to the third paragraph where she gives the links to John Sanders and his wife, Phoebe.  You should also see the Howard family link.

Generation No. 2

2.  RICHARD SANDERS ( JOHN  1)  was born and died in Nansemond Co. Virginia, may have married MISS HOWARD,  probable  sister of  JAMES  and STEPHEN HOWARD and others of  Nansemond Co. Virginia.   This is unproven as of now.  Also see the Stephen Howard family on Frances' page and all of the Sanders pages http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~fcharper/theory.html

Bill Linder, now deceased, was a well-known archivist and genealogist who did have a genealogy web page.   I was recently unable to find it. Bill Linder's page about the Howards may have confused some folks. Bill's page stated that Stephen Howard's wife was Sarah Sanders - which he believed when he put that page up based on John Sanders' Onslow, NC  will referring to uncle Stephen Howard.   Frances Harper's pages say that Stephen Howard's unknown sister Miss Howard was the wife of Richard Sanders - which would have made Stephen Howard John Sanders' uncle on his mother's side.  Bill and Frances were going to hash this out when he got back from his trip, but he died before they could.  Bill was aware of the problem and wanted to look into it but never got the chance.  Richard left a will but it is not extant.   Their known children, not in birth order as it is not known, were:

 3.  i.  JAMES 3 SANDERS, SR.  ( b. Va. d. 1764, Johnston Co. NC) m. ANN HOLMES of Nansemond Co.  Va.  and Edgecombe Co. NC.   In Bertie Co. NC deed records,  James Sanders assigned to David Osheal of Nansemond County certain land on the West branch of Nansemond River devised to him by the will of Richard Sanders, his deceased father on 10 Oct 1726, Recorded Nov 1726.   There are many deeds in Bertie County with this James Sanders and the Howard and Spier Families.

      ii.  JOHN SANDERS  of Onslow County, NC.  Please see the  will of John Sanders of Onslow Co. NC which proves many relationships of this family.

     iii.  RICHARD SANDERS, JR.  The following deed may be him, but I am not sure:
#427
Tr-1:21 (194)    Nov. 1760.  JOHN LEE, Johnston Co, planter, to RICHARD SANDERS, Same, 10# proc 200A (county not given) beg bounding on John Odams line beg at a pine on the spring br up sd  br 220p to the __se line: along sd line 146p to a pine: along a line of markt trees 220p to the lower line: along sd line 146p to the 1st sta being the third part of a survey made by sd John Lee in the year 1761…  Wit: John  Barefoot, Samson (+) Johnson, John (x) Lee.

Generation 3

3. JAMES 3 SANDERS , SR.  (RICHARD2 JOHN  1)   b. Va., son of RICHARD SANDERS  of Nansemond Co. Virginia, died 1764 in Johnston Co. NC.  He married ANN HOLMES, daughter of JOHN HOLMES and TAMAR BYRD.  The admr. of the estate of James Sr. was his son,  James Sanders, Jr.

 Children of JAMES3  SANDERS , SR. and ANN HOLMES OF JOHNSTON CO. NC  are:

4.    i. JAMES 4 SANDERS, JR, b. December 29, 1733, Edgecombe Co. N.C.; d. Bef. November 02, 1802, Oglethorpe Co. Ga.
5.   ii. JOHN SANDERS, d. Aft. December 16, 1783, Johnston Co. NC.
      iii. BRITTAIN SANDERS, m. EDITH HUNTER.
      iv. HARDY SANDERS, m. LUCY UTLEY.  (more on these families at Frances Harper's web page.)
Also, there are two other possible children who have been unproven as of yet:

      vi.  WILLIAM SANDERS of Chatham Co. NC, compiled by R.S. Sanders, Weinert, TX.

     Generation No. 4

4.  JAMES 4  SANDERS (JAMES3 RICHARD2 JOHN 1)  ) was born December 29, 1733 in probably N.C., and died prior to November 02, 1802 in Oglethorpe Co. Ga.   He married SARAH TULLY about 1755 in probably  NC., daughter of THOMAS TULLY.

JAMES SANDERS was born 29 December 1733, birthplace probably N.C., and died prior to 2 November 1802, Oglethorpe County, Georgia.  He married ca. 1755, probably in North Carolina, to SARAH TULLY  (b. 18 Dec. 1737, birthplace unk.), daughter of THOMAS TULLY.   Sarah was still living in March 1788 in Surry County.   She may have been the Sarah given in James's estate of 1802 -1804, and Sarah Sanders, widow, who drew in the 1804 Oglethorpe County Land Lottery.    However,  some James Sanders married Sally Johnson on 4 August 1797 in Oglethorpe County, and they have not been identified by this compiler.  Burial place of James Sanders is unknown.

James Sanders' father was JAMES SAUNDERS  who died by 1764, Johnston County.    James Saunders was appointed to administer his father's estate, as recorded in the Johnston County court minutes.  No further record of the estate is extant at Johnston County or at North Carolina Archives. The roots of James who died by 1764  lie in Bertie and Edgecombe counties, North Carolina (Edgecombe formed 1741 from Bertie).

No details to further identify Thomas Tully, father of Sarah, are given in the James Sanders Bible, but another reference says, "Thomas Tully received a land grant, 300 acres in Edgecombe County, 25 September 1741, preached in Bute County in 1755, settled Three Creeks, Johnston Co.   North Carolina, from 1757-1772. Colonial Baptist Minister"  [Rev. Frederick Lewis Weis, Th.D. (1895-1966). (Historian of the Society of the Descendants of the Colonial Clergy.)  The Colonial Clergy of Virginia, North Carolina,  and South Carolina. Baltimore.   Repr. 1976. ]   However, Bute County was not formed until 1764 from Granville, and Granville was formed 1746 from Edgecombe County.

James Sanders and his wife, Sarah Tully, are thought to have followed the Baptist denomination, but there is no proof that her father is the same Thomas Tully as the one referred to above.  Other records are found on a Thomas Tully.      The will of Cornelius Tully, Pasquotank, North Carolina, written 3 August 1708, names children, Thomas and Mary, but the compiler has not proven the relationship to Sarah Tully.   Sarah was born 29 years after the will was written, therefore the possibility  exists that the child of Cornelius, Thomas, was her father.

Our subject, James Sanders, was first found in Johnston County records, 6 May 1757, when he received a Granville land grant on Cow Branch, under the name James Sanders, Jr.   He received another land grant, 21 July 1761, on Middle Creek, under the name James Sanders; it appears to be the same land he sold to  Hardy Sanders in 1769.  In 1758, James Sanders, Jr. sold part of the Cow Branch land to Thomas Tully, Jr., whose heir, William Tully, sold it to David Mims in 1761.  These Tullys probably were the family of Sarah Tully Sanders,  but the proof is yet to be found.

James Sanders lived in the area of Johnston County, NC that became part of Wake County in 1771.  He has not been found at all in the Wake County records.   By 1774, or before, he had left that area for Surry County, North Carolina, where he lived in that portion of Surry County on the north fork of Hunting Creek shown by tax lists and numerous deeds.   He was listed on the 1790 Surry County census, and by 1ate 1794, he had moved to Oglethorpe County, Georgia, settling on Brushy Creek of the Broad River, a part formerly in Wilkes County until division occurred in 1793.

 In 1799, a deed shows James was living on the south fork of Broad River in Oglethorpe County.  On 20 September 1800, a church record shows James Sanders of Brushy Creek on the south fork of Broad River in Oglethorpe County was an original member of Beaverdam Primitive Baptist Church.  It is believed this was James, born 1733, rather than his son, James, Jr.,  born 1762.  James, the father, and some of his sons are listed on the 1795-99 Oglethorpe County tax lists and the 1800 census.

While in Surry County, North Carolina, James performed patriotic service during the Revolutionary War which entitles his descendants to membership in the DAR.  He is listed in the DAR Patriot Index, Vol.1:594. See DAR Natl.  No. 355071, Margaret Miller, and DAR Natl.  No. 557343, Agnes Bowmer Holman Moore.  Both ladies descend through Nancy Holman, daughter of James and Sarah Sanders.

During the Revolution, James surveyed and marked out a road and hired a substitute for his son, James, the first time he was called for service.  James, Jr. was a Revolutionary soldier.  See selected Surry County records and James Jr.'s Revolutionary pension claim abstracted later.   In addition to these, there are numerous references to James Sanders in the minute books of Surry County during the time he was there. The children of Sarah Tully and James Sanders have been taken from the family Bible of James Sanders, deeds, returns of James Sanders' estate, censuses, tax lists, wills, and other records.

Notes for SARAH TULLY:
The following Cornelius Tully may be Sarah's grandfather, but this has not been proven yet.

Benjamin (x) Cartwright                           Signed/Cornelius Tully
Mary Clark                                                           (His hand and seal)
Valentine Low

Pasquotank, N.C.  Last Will and Testament of Cornelius Tully was proved in open
court by the oaths of Benj. Cartwright, Mary Clark, and Valentine Low, 19 July 1709.

Note:  I have not proven the Tully family in which Sarah Tully Sanders belonged.  However, in the James Sanders Bible, Sarah is given as the daughter of Thomas Tully.  The question is, who is the Thomas Tully in the will above?  Is he the father of Sarah Tully Sanders?

Another reference says, " Thomas Tully received a land grant, 300 acres, in Edgecombe Co. NC, 25 September 1741.  He was a colonial Baptist Minister who preached in Bute Co. NC 1755, settled Three Creeks, Johnston Co. NC from 1757-1772 [Rev. Frederick Lewis Weis, Th.D. (1895-1966).  (Historian of the Society of the Descendants of the Colonial Clergy.) THE COLONIAL CLERGY OF VIRGINIA, NORTH CAROLINA, AND SOUTH CAROLINA.  Baltimore.  Repr. 1976].  Note, however, Bute County was not formed until 1764 from Granville, and Granville was formed 1746 from Edgecombe County.

9.  JAMES 5 SANDERS (JAMES 4, JAMES3 RICHARD2 JOHN 1) was born March 18, 1762 in Johnston Co. NC, and died Aft. September 08, 1846 in Madison Co. Ga. Left will written that day.  He married (1) ELIZABETH RILEY July 28, 1786 in Surry Co. NC.  He married (2) FLORA ________ Bef. 1846.

JAMES SANDERS, Jr. was born 18 March 1762 in Johnston County, North Carolina, and died after 8 September 1846 in Madison County, Georgia.  He married (1) ELIZABETH RILEY (b. 18 Feb. 1854), on 28 July 1786 in Surry County, North Carolina, with Edward Riley, Bondsman [Marriage bonds]; m. (2) FLORA , the widow mentioned in his will, Madison County, Georgia .  Burial places are unknown to this compiler.

James Sanders, Jr. was a Revolutionary soldier, served from Surry County, North Carolina, and filed a pension claim from Madison County, Georgia.  He drew in the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery as a Revolutionary soldier of Adair's District, Madison County.  He received two grants: 7th Dist., 2nd Sect.  Muscogee County, Lot #151, 2021 acs. and 2nd Dist., 2nd Sect.  Muscogee County, Lot #176, 202'1 acs. [Surveyor Gen.  Dept.  Ga.  Archives].

James, Jr. is listed on the earliest Oglethorpe County tax lists, 1800 Oglethorpe County census, 1820-40 Madison County censuses, and the earliest Madison County tax lists].  Apparently, from the deeds studied, James, Jr.  came to Georgia before his father came.  See Surry County deeds and Oglethorpe County deeds.

James, Jr. was among the first Justices of the Inferior Court for the new county of Madison, formed December 1811 from parts of Oglethorpe County, Elbert County, and other counties.  He served from 1812-22, and also served as foreman of the Grand Jury 1817, 1820, 18219 1823, and 1827.  He was a member of Moriah Primitive Baptist Church to which he donated land on Brushy Creek in Madison County. This church is still active today.

On 25 December 1846, Flora Sanders, his widow, and John Shepard, son-in-law, executors of James, Jr.'s estate, sold some of his land on Brushy Creek, Madison County, wherein the Moriah Church was located, to Sanders W. Colbert of Madison County.  The church acreage was not included in this sale, as it was deeded forever to the church [F:158].

In addition to his will, references for his estate  are: Inventory, Appraisement, & Sale- Madison Co. Deed Bk   D:114-126, Ga.  Archives Dr. 16, Bx 39; Annual Returns & Vouchers- Deed Bk F:337, 542-545, Ga.  Archives Dr. 16, Bx 43; Ord. Court Records, Bk G:380-81, all in Madison Co. Ga.

The family Bible of Elizabeth and James Sanders, Jr. was attached to his Revolutionary pension claim, and gives the names of their children and their birthdates; his estate records also used; marriage records from county records.  Space does not permit abstracting all of his estate records, which provide much information on descendants.  Because of the deaths of two of James' daughters prior to James' death, many of his grandchildren are mentioned in the settlement of his estate.

REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION CLAIM OF JAMES  5 SANDERS, JR.
[Son of Sarah Tully and James Sanders]

File No. R9179, National Archives, Washington, D.C. 24 Sept. 1832, Madison Co., Ga.  JAMES SANDERS, resident of Capt.  Lae's(?) Company, Madison Co. Ga., aged 70, duly sworn, made the following declaration:

He entered the U.S. service under the following named officers and served as stated. He was drafted in the year 1778 or 1779 to serve 3 months; his father hired a man who took his place and performed such service.  He afterward entered as a volunteer in pursuit of the Tories in June, 1780.  He and a few others pursued the Tories into Rowan Co., N.C. He joined a Continental number of Volunteers and became organized; he was attached to Capt. Reed's Co. Shortly after Maj.  Lewis, a Continental off cer, took command of sd troops then within a few miles of a large  number of Tories.  The Tories from some cause fled.  He was then marched with the troops in pursuit until coming near Cornwallis' army when it was considered imprudent to march further, this command then returned to their homes.

 He with others as soon as they returned joined Lt.  John Blalock as rangers for the purpose of pursuing the Tories and also what was called delinquents, men who had been out lying and desenting.  It was understood that the taking of one of those would relieve a man from a tour of duty.  These men when taken and given up to a Continental officer (the Tories to be considered as robbers during the war) at Salisburg and received certificates for such, which certificates were placed in the hands of William T. Lewis, but what became of them since he does not know.  He went with them to Salem, N.C. and there joined some troops from Virginia and remained as rangers for taking the Tories and protecting the country when Cornwallis marched through N.C. This applicant joined Gen'l Pickens' army and pursued Cornwallis to near the Virginia line when a party was detached (of which he was one) to return for the protection of the country against the Tories, etc. which duty he was performing as County Ranger under the command of Lt.  John Blalock until the treaty of peace in 1783 (and while in service furnished his own horse).  He was sick at the time of the Shel ... on Adkins and Guilford Courthouse.  He has not documentary evidence and knows of no one who can testify to his service.

In answer to the interrogations presented by the War Dept. and propounded by the Court, he answered:
1. "I was born 18 March 1762, Johnston Co., now Wake Co.  N.C."
2. "I have a record of my age at my home."
3. "I was living in Surry Co. N.C. when called into service.  I resided in sd county until about 1788 when I removed to Wilkes Co. Ga. where I resided until Oglethorpe Co. was formed.  When Madison Co. was formed, it included me in the bounds where I now reside.
4. "I was a Volunteer."
5.  "Major Lewis was a Continental officer.  I recollect
no other regular officers."
6. "I never received a discharge."
7. "I refer you to William Hodges, Hawkins Bullock, Edward Ware, James Pittman, Nathan Meroney, James Griffeth." [This referred to people in his present community who might testify that he was reputed to be a Revolutionary Soldier, or known as one in the community.]
s/JAMES SANDERS

Benjamin Brown, clergyman, and Archer Norris, residents of Madison County, Georgia, testify that they were well acquainted with JAMES SANDERS, believe him to be 70 years old, and that in the neighborhood where he resides he is reputed to have been a soldier of the Revolution, and they concur in that opinion.
The Court declared that it was their opinion that the above named JAMES SANDERS was indeed a Revolutionary soldier.   s/James Anderson, i.I.C.; Noah Pittman, J.I.C.
