DESCENDENTS AND MYSTERY OF ROBERT SANDERS
my gggGrandfather
NOTE:  all names in red are my direct ancestors

Generation No. 1

ROBERT SANDERS  was born February 24, 1821 in Orange County, Indiana, and died October 27, 1858 in Centralia Township, Marion County, Illinois.  He married (1) NANCY JANE COPPLE October 22, 1846 in Jefferson County Illinois, daughter of JOHN COPPLE and CATHERINE COPPLE.  She was born 1824 in Orange County, Indiana, and died December 10, 1857 in Centralia Township, Marion County, Illinois.  He married (2) MARY SANDERS March 02, 1858 in Marion County, Illinois, daughter of MILES SANDERS and MARY COPPLE.  She was born 1837.

    
    MYSTERY #1  There are many people who believe that Richard Sanders was the father of Robert.  I have my doubts.  Richard was born 1755 in North Carolina.  He would have had to be 66 years old when Robert was born.  I have a hard time with this.  Richard married first to a Hannah Morgan Henby, widow of John Henby.  According to some, Hannah and Richard supposedly had a child, Robert, born about 1795.  Could this Robert Sanders be the father of Robert, born 1821?

    MYSTERY #2  How many times did Richard Sanders marry?  Some say twice (Hannah Morgan Henby, Elizabeth Breeze).  Some have found him married to an Elizabeth Wells, (who happens to have the same birth and death dates as Elizabeth Breeze)......and an Elizabeth Marshall.  I have found Robert, who was born 1821 in Orange County, Indiana, listed as the son of Richard and Elizabeth (Breeze) Sanders.  I have also found where Robert is listed as the child of Richard and UNKNOWN Sanders. The search continues........
