From Anson county recordsI have a land entry reference on James Sanders obtains land from Henry Touchstone on May 4th 1761 on Mountain Creek. Book 6 Page 111. Patrick Saunders Sold land to Littlebird Shepard on Mountain Creek July 26th 1759 Deed Book 6 page 224. Patrick Sanders buys land from Thomas Cockerham on November 12th, 1767 on Mountain Creek. Book H-1 Page 333. Patrick Sanders sold to Christopher MaCrae Et. Al. on June 9th 1777. Described as “adjacent to James Sanders” Mountain Creek iflows from the northwest into the Pee Dee river in present day Stanly County (formed in 1841 from Montgomery).
With this info it would seem likely that Patrick and James were closely related. Patrick Sanders wife was Mary. Patrick and James both signed the regulators petition in 1769 from Anson County. Other Sanders i've found in Montgomery, Aaron. Moses, Daniel on Barnes Creek. George and Rueben are another family mentioned in the land entries.
