Nimrod Saunders and Mary Elizabeth Ricketts.
Nimrod Saunders was born in 1780 in Montgomery County, North Carolina. Nimrod's parents were William Aaron Saunders and Joan Bailey. According to old family documentation, Nimrod was 9 years old at the close of the American Revolution. He was still listed to be in Montgomery County in 1800. In 1802, he is reported to have owned land on the Duncombe Creek in Montgomery County.
Nimrod married Mary Elizabeth Ricketts and had 14 children between 1803 and 1829, not counting an infant death in 1818. According to the U.S. census of 1830, all of the children were living with Nimrod and Elizabeth except possibly the 4 oldest children: Sarah, Tibatha, Nathan, and Aaron. It is believed that the fifth child, Stephen, was still living in the household. Nimrod operated a gris mill and was known to be an honest merchant in all of this work. "Honest Rod", they use to call him.
In 1834, when the youngest child, Allen, was 12 years of age, the family moved to Cherokee County in the northern part of Georgia. It is not known for certain which members of Nimrod's children moved to Georgia, but the 1850 census indicates that several of them lived in Cherokee County. The census reports Nimrod and Elizabeth living with their youngest son, Allen, then age 20. Harris Saunders was living with his 20 year old wife, Tersa (Tarrissa?). John Saunders, thought to be Jackson, was living with wife Martha and an older 61 year old man, Andrew, thought to be Martha's father.
After a few years, date uncertain, Nimrod moved his family to Alabama, near the Talapoosie River. Nimrod is believed to have died in Alabama in 1849, but census records show Nimrod and Elizabeth living with daughter Joanna in Cherokee County, AL, in 1860. Mary Elizabeth also died in Alabama; the date is uncertain.
