Hi Chuck,

Here are the online transcriptions of the three Sanders cemeteries in Jackson County:

Sanders Cemetery, Kyles Community:
http://files.usgwarchives.org/al/jackson/cemeteries/sanders1...

Sanders MillCreek Cemetery, Skyline:
http://files.usgwarchives.org/al/jackson/cemeteries/sanders2...

Sanders Cemetery, near Skyline on Highway 79:
http://files.usgwarchives.org/al/jackson/cemeteries/sanders3...

The third cemetery is small, less than 20 graves. It has no sign and one can easily miss it while driving past. The second cemetery, Sanders Mill Creek, is the largest of the three and has graves of many of our Sanders and related families.

Cemetery no. 1 is on land dedicated by Jesse Elbert Sanders. The mystery is why anyone would erect a monument there to someone who has no known connection to our Sanders and who died decades before the first burials were made in the cemetery.

Or,is it possibly that John W. Sanders of South Carolina died in what was to later become Jackson County and that his relatives, not knowing exactly where he died, thought it appropriate to erect a monument to him in a cemetery where other Sanders were also buried? This is just speculation on my part, of course.
