Elias SANDERS b 1775 NC, m GA, d GA
Posted by: polly Date: January 12, 2001 at 13:51:42

Are there SANDERS descendants out there that know of an Elias SANDERS b in NC, possibly a county that bordered SC/GA such as Transylvania, Henderson, Polk, Rutherford, Jackson, Macon, Clay or Cleveland? Reason I am asking is because I am looking for ANY info on my 5th great-grandfather, Elias SANDERS,

b 1775 in NC
m Mary CARTER abt 1795 in GA
d 1865-1872 in GA

I am grasping at straws, looking at the NC map and seeing what counties border the places in GA/SC where Elias and his descendants come from, and seeking info on those forums. No one can seem to find any info on Elias, like his parents, siblings, ethnicity, etc. I didn't even know Elias was born in NC, until I saw a copy of the 1850 census, where he stated he was born in NC. I, as well as distant cousins, are searching high and low for any clues to finding out any info. Rumor has it his mom was possibly a Native American, from the "Plumer" tribe. I assume maybe it was a sub-tribe of Cherokee. I know Cherokees were prevalent in NC at that time frame. I've already posted on the SANDERS forum and have gotten nowhere, so I'm branching out. Any help would be SO appreciated!!
