Generation No. 4

4.  RICHARD SANDERS (JOHN, RICHARD, WILLIAM) was born October 28, 1755, and died Abt. 1832 in Orange County, Indiana.  He married (1) *HANNAH MORGAN HENBY November 01, 1780 in Periquimans County, NC, daughter of JOHN HENBY and HANNAH DORMAN. *I do not believe that Hannah Morgan Henby was the daughter of John Henby and Hannah Dorman.  I believe her maiden name was Morgan due to findings in Quaker Meetin Minutes. He married (2) ELIZABETH BREEZE Abt. 1820 in Orange County, Indiana.
 

The following information on Richard Sanders was obtained from  Patsy
Bell Sanders.  It is an essay written by Sampson L. Weathers,  born in
1883 to a grandson of Richard.
 He was born about the year 1740.  He was a farmer and served seven
years as a soldier in the Revolutionary War.  He was fond of telling
about this war and his commanders.  He served seven years under General
Washington and liked him best of all commanders, was personally
acquainted with him and they were friends.  Richard was the first dead
person which the writer's grandfather, Thomas Elwood Sanders, ever saw.
Thomas was seven at the time of his grandfather's death.  This grandson
used to ride his grandfather's knee and listen to the stories of the War
of the Revolution, and to the war songs which he sang to him.  Richard
Sanders had a long flowing white beard which came down almost to his
waist.  He was about 96 when he died (about 1836 or 1837).  He was
upright in spirit and an honest man and was very fond of little
children.  He married Elizabeth Breeze and four sons were born unto them
whose names are John, William and twins Aaron and Elmore.  Richard
Sanders was born an Englishman and came from England, it is thought to
Pennsylvania state.  From Pennsylvania it is thought he went to North
Carolina and thence to Orange County, Indiana.  He was a Protestant and
was perhaps a member of the Christian Church.

12.  RICHARD SANDERS (THOMAS, RICHARD, JOHN, RICHARD, WILLIAM) was born December 15, 1824 in Orange County, Indiana, and died August 29, 1873 in Wayne County, Illinois.  He married MARGARET MELINDA FAULKNER October 12, 1848 in Orange County, Indiana, daughter of WILLIAM FAULKNER and ANNA HARNED.

 Information from the 1994 Sanders family reunion booklet:  Richard
Sanders pioneered into Wayne County, IL during the time of the civil
war.  He had sold his land in Orange Co., IN, and with his double
brother-in-law, Warren Faulkner, followed other family members to the
area around Irvington, IL.  While living at Irvington, they heard of
land opportunities in western Wayne County.  Richard's family at the
time included five or six children and later increased to eleven.
 Richard and Warren looked over the land near Keenes in Wayne County,
picked a homesite and built what was called a "Half-faced camp"  for
temporary living quarters.  A two-story log house was built against a
temporary lean-to or shed which would be used for storage.  Richard was
a barrel maker and the land he selected had an abundance of white oak,
walnut and other hardwoods.  The logs used in the house were long wide
white oak and the same for a large log barn and crib, both covered with
clapboard shingles.  Warren located one quarter mile south of Richard in
chiefly prairie land, a part of what was known as "Six Mile Prairie".
They then went back to Irvington to close their business and get their
families.  Before leaving the family west of Keenes with whom they had
been staying, they left $400 in gold with them for safekeeping, tucked
away in a featherbed.  It was to be used to help pay for the land which
is believed to have cost $4 per acre.
 Their chief problem was making a living.  There was little or no outlet
for selling excess products such as livestock because there were no
railroads or available markets of any kind.  Neighbors bartered their
products with each other.  Richard was fortunate and made good barrels,
kegs, etc., for both wet and dry products.  He even found a flag or
plant in the Skillet Fork bottoms that he placed between the white oak
staves of barrels to keep them from becoming leaky.
 Richard and Margaret were charter members of the Six Mile Baptist
Church.  Richard died in 1873 at the age of 47.  He is buried in Bruce
Cemetery in Wayne County, near Keenes.
