For years, I have been searching for the parents of brothers Thompson and Perry Sanders of Loudoun County, Virginia who both emigrated to Muskingum County, Ohio. After years of searching, I finally located a transcript of a record that solves this puzzle. From the following Bible record, it appears that Thompson and Perry Sanders were the sons of George Sanders and Sarah Money of Fairfax County, Virginia.
