Upon the death of Sampson Sanders (sometimes Saunders) in Cabell County, WV in 1849 a group of his former slaves settled in Cass County, MI. Many retained his surname. I am interested in finding out more about this group.

I’m not related to any member of this family.

1940 is the last available census at this time.


WV was not a state in 1850.

You need to supply 1st names + last names for everyone.


1860 - Cass county MI
There are 23 black/mulatto ppl who were born in VA.

Thank you for responding to my query. I have since located several direct descendants of Samson Sanders' former slaves who relocated to Cass County, MI after manumission.
