Re: Early Maryland Records (1714 & 1735)
Mike, These deeds appear to be for James Sanders/Saunders who died in Anne Arundel Co Md and whose will was filed on 5-20-1702. I have recently discovered that he was my 7th grgrandfather, and was the the father of James, Anne, and Robert Sanders. Anne married 1) Capt Nicholas Gassaway and 2) Samuel Chambers who was born 1670 in Anne Arundel Co Md. Anne and Samuel were my 6th grgrandparents. I don't know a whole lot about this family, but do think this is them, being that a Samuel Young was one of the appraisers of James Sanders' estate. James lived in London Town, on the South River, his wife was named Rebecca, and he was a member of the Council of Maryland. However, I don't know anything about his origins, nor anything beyomd Samuel Chambers either. If you have any further information about this family, I would love to have it.
The Sanders name shows up in some family deeds and marriages in the late 1700's in Burke County Georgia. amd I think the Sanders family connections in Georgia probably came from this same Sanders connection from earlier in Maryland. Samuel's son Nicholas Chambers lived in Cecil Co Md, where Jonas Chambers was born abt 1741. Sometime between 1785 and 1788, Jonas moved his family to Burke County Ga. I would love to be able to connect these families.
