REYNOLDS and DeMOSS looking for information on my gg grandfather's brother, CHARLES REYNOLDS, Charles was born in Anne Arundel Co. August 30, 1797. He married Sept 16, 1819 MARY (POLLY?/PATSY?) DeMOSS. I would like to learn more of Charles and Mary's descendants. And I'd also very much appreciate any input on Mary DeMoss, as I think she is somehow related to my gg grandmother Rachel DeMOSS and I need to know how they are related. I also take Reynolds queries, as I've been trying to amass as much REYNOLDS data as I possibly can. And if I can't help you, then I can steer you towards many other Reynolds researchers who just might have your needed info in their own files.

SANDERS Looking for any information on Elias Sanders. He moved from Maryland to >>Georgia. Married Mary Carter and had nine children. The progenitor of one line of the Sanders family in Hart County (Georiga) was born 1775 and died abt 1865. Tradition says that his father was a man probably of English descent and his mother an Indian woman of the Plumer tribe. In his youth, Elias Sanders came from Maryland to Georgia and married Mary Carter....I have contacted the Cherokee and Shawnee Nations to inquire about the Plumer Tribe. Neither have ever heard of them. There are about a dozen of Elias descendents looking for the parents of Elias but stop right here. This is the only reference we have. William Patrick
