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:

Georgia Statesman, April 2, 1827
Twiggs County: John Rasberry applies for Letters of
Administration on the estate of John Sanders, deceased.

List of letters remaining at the Post Office, Marion, GA:

July 1, 1821 Jesse Wade
April 30, 1822 John Rasberry
October 1, 1822 Jesse Wade, John Rasberry
January 28, 1823 John Sanders

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.

1833 Tax Digest

Jesse Wade, Herrings District, 405 Acres, Twiggs

Elizabeth Sanders, Herrings District, 5 slaves, 350/454 Acres, Twiggs and Lee Counties

Hope some of this helps.
