By Charla Schroeder Murphy – 2015
Contents of the book are in the form of a modified register report with extensive notes added for many of the early Sanders family of Robertson County, TN and others. The family of William Sanders born about 1736 and died 1803 arrived in the Robertson County, TN area by 1796 from evidence of deeds recorded there. They came from Camden District, Richland County, South Carolina with many other families of that area such as the Hunters, Moakes, Simmons and several others.
Many of William Sanders’ grandchildren and one son, Gabriel Sanders, moved to Franklin County, IL by 1830. Williamson County, IL was formed from the southern part of Franklin County, IL in 1839. One great grandson, Richmond Sanders moved to Scott County, MO and his descendants still live there today. Children and grandchildren of Andrew Sanders, son of William Sanders d. 1803 also moved to Missouri as well, one being Lawson Sanders who moved first to Williamson County, IL, then Johnson County, IL then to Reynolds County, MO. A grandson of Andrew Sanders, Andrew Jackson Sanders b. 1 April 1836 moved from Cheatham County, TN to Piney, Oregon County, MO with his family and died there in 1913.
Several of the Sanders family stayed in Robertson County, TN. Today their land is now located in Cheatham County, TN which was formed from Robertson, Davidson and Dickson County, TN in 1856. Many of their descendants still live near the area the original Sanders pioneers called home in 1796 during the early settlement of State of Tennessee.
