Claiborne B Sanders & Nancy Holder married 1832

Claiborne B. Sanders married Nancy Holder in Wilkinson Co GA on Nov. 4, 1832. Claiborne was born about 1813-14 and is believed to be the son of Samuel Sanders of Wilkinson County, and Nancy was born about 1809, probably in Wilkinson Co GA. They appear in the Grimes County TX 1870 census and 1880 census.

Claiborne Sanders is listed in the Wilkinson County GA Court of Ordinary, Minute Book A, July Term 1835, page 14: Martha Sanders, Orph. – Claborn Sanders is appointed Gdn. for Elbert A, Cyon {Sion} D. B. and Nancy Sanders, $300 Bond. Sam’l. Sanders Security.

Samuel Sanders makes two subsequent appearances for Claiborne regarding the Martha Sanders Estate during the November Term 1844: Martha Sanders, Est. –Sam’l. Sanders as agent for Claibourn B. Sander, Admr. makes his return; and during the May Term 1845: Martha Sanders, Est. – Samuel Sanders, Agent for Claibourn B. Sanders, Admr. has settled the estate and has L of D. The indication is that possibly Claiborne had left the county.Who is Martha, Claiborne's mother?

Claiborne, age 36, is in the 1850 Stewart Co GA Census listed as C.B. Sanders with wife Nancy, age 42, sons Thurman Sanders 16, John Sanders 13, J. M. Sanders 7 and Benj. F Sanders, and daughters Rebecca Sanders 1, Sarah Sanders 5, M. L. Sanders 4 and E. M. Sanders 9/12. A Rachel Elizabeth Sanders whom I believe to be Claiborne's daughter is in the 1850 Clarke Co GA enumerated with a Smith and an Epps family; next door is a Silas Sanders and his family. A Confederate Pension Number 22461 was filed in Grimes County by a Susan Wilson listing a Silas Sanders as her husband. Proof of a relationship to my Sanders is pending.

Rachel Elizabeth Sanders, my great great grandmother, was born about 1835 and married Isaac Cryle Decker, son of Isaac Decker, an early settler of Montgomery County, on Dec. 26 1855 in Montgomery County, TX (See biography of Isaac Decker posted on the Grimes County TX web site). This would indicate that the Sanders arrived in Texas from Georgia between the 1850 GA census and 1855.

I have numerous descendants of two of Rachel Elizabeth Sanders Decker's daughters, Ophelia Decker Andrews/Andrus and Almira Elizabeth Decker Gilley, thru whom I am descended.

C.B. Sanders is in the 1860 Montgomery Co Census, with N. Sanders 52, J. Sanders 23 M [John], R. Sanders 21 F [Rebecca], J. Sanders 18 F, S. Sanders 16 F [Sarah], B. J. Sanders 12 M [Benjamin J], E. H or E.M. Sanders 10 F [E. Myra ?].

In 1870, still listed as C.B., he is next door in Grimes Co TX (Coatney P.O.) with wife Nancy and daughters Rebecca 30 and Myra 20; there is also a James Sanders listed with a Coatney P.O address. By the 1880 census, Claiborne, 67, and Nancy, 71, are by themselves, except for a boarder staying with them, Daniel Gill.

I would love to correspond with anyone who can shed any more light on C.B. and Nancy, their parents and any of their children.
