Thomas Sandford Sanders is my great grandfather and I am looking for any information about when and where he died. He was listed on the 1930 census as living with Robert Walter Sanders in Opp Covington County Alabama. He was listed as T Samual Sanders age 83 and the father of Robert Walter Sanders. I need this information for a DAR application. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WILLIAM HENRY1 SANDERS was born 10 Apr 1777 in Virginia, USA. He married ELIZABETH DENNIS.
Notes for WILLIAM HENRY SANDERS:
The will of William Sanders, Warren Co., GA, dated 10 April 1797, leaves all of his possessions to his son, Henry Sanders. It is possible this William Sanders is the father of our William Henry Sanders. Further research required.

William Henry and Elizabeth "Betsy" were married by a Baptist minister. This family lived in Putnam Co., GA as early as 1811. The 1820 Putnam Co., GA census shows they live in an area with 7 other Sanders families. Also living in this area are the McGlaun & Maddox families. 1830 & 1840 Muscogee Co., GA census. Two children were born in Wilkes &
Wilkinson Counties, GA. In 1840 the McGlaun, Tullis & Huckaby familie are neighbors to our Sanders.

1850 Muscogee Co., GA census - Betsy is deceased & William Henry is living with his son, Joshua.

1870 Pike Co., AL census (17 June 1870) William Henry is living with his son, Allen. That census shows William's age to be 102 yrs; the 1850, census showed his age to be 75 yrs., more in line with his birth date.
