NOTE:
The Crowder Mill was located at Hopewell Springs near Madisonville, Tennessee. As late as the summer of 1988 the dam for the mill on Big Notchey Creek was still in existence. The building, of course, is no longer there, but we understand that the wheel from the mill was used as part of the TVA Exhibit during the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville.

What part of the country are you from? I am from Tennessee. I know the Saunders clan is kind of far flung.

Thanks for the info. I was told by some in the family that my ancestors came from Scotland. I have been trying to verify that without to much luck as of yet.

Would you have any idea who's John Saunders father and where he came from?

Again thanks.

My ancestors came from Scotland also. I'm trying to connect as many Saunders/Sanders as I can. I'm looking for a John Saunders born around 1750 in Scotland. Mine came to Massachusetts in 1864. (By the way)My uncle George Saunders was Commander of the Navel Base in Jackson, Tennessee.
