Hello all,

Looking for any information on Robert SANDERS, b. abt 1760, probably Guilford Co. NC. Believe he was in the Revolutionary War. Wife's name was Anna. What was her last name? He relocated to Montgomery Co. VA after 1800. Known or probable children, all married around 1820 in Montgomery Co VA:

Robert Jr. m. Betsey LORTON
Micajah m. Rebeckah THOMPSON
Julius m. Lydia BRATTON
Elizabeth m. Bird AKERS
Anthony m. Lovicy AKERS
Peter Francis m. Elizabeth THOMPSON
Clarissa m. Davidson AKERS

Where are Robert and Anna buried?

Robert's father was John Jr. Sanders who died in 1780 during the Rev. War on a march to South Carolina. His wife's name was Susannah. What was her last name?

By DNA testing we know that this family is somehow related to Julius Sanders who was killed by Indians in 1861 Uvalde Tx. Would like to know the exact relationship.

Would love to know any more details or hints for further research.

Thanks very much in advance.

Glenn Sanders

Hi Glen,
We've communicated in the past about our Sanders/Saunders lines. Julius Sanders of Rockingham Co., NC to Uvalde Co., TX was my 3rd great grandfather. Would like to discuss Sanders' line.
Thank you,
Gayle Miller
