The William, Jr. of 1830 Perry county should be a senior. He was born in 1778 North Carolina and was one of the earlier settlers of all of all of the settlers to Perry county. He came to the area about 1817 or so. He was a very properous Sanders man. He died in 1860. He was the son of a William Sanders who actually died in South Carolina about 1811.

The John and Elizabeth Sanders on the 1860 census: John is the son of Sion and Mary Sanders (Sion is brother to William above). John was born in 1798 South Carolina and died in 1896. He is buried in the Sanders/Tubb Cemetery in north-central Perry county. His gravestone is still there along with his first wife, Jane (Cannon), along with a couple of his children who died at a young age. It's a cemetery that is "out in the woods" and is not taken care of, so I'm afraid that in years to come it will be "lost" forever.

That William and Bashaba is actually the son of William N. Sanders who is also listed on your information. The William N. Sanders was the son of a Vincent Sanders of Franklin county, North Carolina. Vincent is the brother to that older William Sanders I mentioned in the first paragraph of this message. William N. actually came a little later to Perry county (the 1840's). He died about 1876. William N. is my 3great grandfather.

I just returned from a day trip to Perry county last week. It has much history of the Sanders' and others. Many of the older churches are still there and some of the cemeteries still hold some Sanders'. There are at least two cemeteries "in the woods" that was amidst where Sanders lived in Perry county but all that is a part of these cemeteries is sunken graves. There are no headstones or any other markings as to who is buried there. We feel that of the Sanders' who died in Perry county in the 1800's most of them are buried in these sunken grave cemeteries.

Anyway, I hope this helps. Let me know if you need any other help.

William John William William N.
