I checked your other posts for information you had already received so that I would not duplicate that. Here is some additional info:
People living in Twiggs County who drew in the 1820 Land Lottery: Jesse Wade, Hodges District
People living in Twiggs who drew in the 1827 Land Lottery:
John Sanders, Kelleys District
I'm not sure if that is your John Sanders in the 1827 Lottery, based on:

Sanders Family Bible
Nancy Sanders, dau of John and Elizabeth Sanders, was born May 15, 1806.
Elizabeth Sanders, dau of John and Elizabeth Sanders, was born March 17, 1814.
In the footnotes concerning this Bible, Bess Vaughn Clark indicates the following:
I believe Nancy Sanders married John Rasberry. They moved to south Georgia, Stewart County, I think. They had a son, Sanders Rasberry, and a granddaughter, Penny (Penelope) Rasberry. My father remembered that his home was the scene of the wedding of a Penny Rasberry. This occurred around 1890.
Elizabeth Sanders, dau of John and Elizabeth Sanders, was the sister of Sarah Sanders, the first wife of William Thomas Vaughn. Elizabeth first married Captain William Herring of Twiggs County. She became the second wife of W.T. Vaughn. The Sanders came to Twiggs from Wayne County, NC.

Hope some of this helps.
