He settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and married in the same year Sarah Barbara Newman. He later moved to Kentucky and then to Ohio where he eventually settled in Fayette County, Ohio.

(The above data say's that he died about 3 months after his wife, Barbara.......Shirley) ********************* Phil and Kathy Campbell are researching James Sanderson line. He is starting a newsletter on the Sanderson/Campbell lines. 929 Cameron St., Pontiac, MI 48340, 248-373-9594, e-mail: pcambel@tir.com *********************** Kathy Smierciak (4827 Montcalm Court, Fort Wayne, IN 46835-4478 keps1@aol.com) says there is a James Sanderson, Sr. on the tax lists for Adams County, OH, for 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809, and 1810. She also thinks James may have had a brother named Alexander who died in 1805 and had a widow named Margaret. This Alexander lived in Highland County, OH, which is next to Adams and Clinton Counties. He supposedly emigrated from Pennsylvania to Kentucky and then moved to Ross County (next to Fayette) in 1801. This area became part of Highland County in 1807. He left five children, the eldest being William. Another son was name J.C. *************************** From Kathy Smierciak, KEPS1@aol.com I have found mixed information about James Sanderson. Just starting research to try and locate James Sanderson in PA and KY. He came to Adams Co. OH and then to Fayette Co. OH. He may have had a brother, Alexander Sanderson, who settled in Highland Co. OH, but died around 1801. Alexander's grandson later gave historical info in "History of Ross and Highland Counties" on page 443 that said Alexander came from Scotland and settled first in PA, then KY, then came to Ross Co. OH where he soon died and his will was the first one probated in that county. James Sanderson, Sr. died about 1841. I have a copy of his will. His son, Alexander, died in 1840 according to wife, Mary, on her pension application (war of 1812). There seems to be no probate record for this Alexander, nor for his wife, Mary. ***************************************** INFORMATION FROM MARLYN HOWARD WILT, famtrees@juno.com He believes that James Sanderson came with a McKillip family from VA/NC via KY, thence into OH. He spent 3 weeks in Ireland and is convinced he did not come from County Cork, but sailed from County Cork. He believes he was probably from County Cavan or near that region, a part of which is now in Northern Ireland. He also says a Dr. Wm Sanderson 1825-1866 was a Union Civil War surgeon in Iowa and Missouri. He died in Union County, OH. He is a son of James Sanderson (a 2nd James) and Sarah Barbara(y) Newman. ************************************ Have picture of his tombstone: James Sanderson, Senior, died Jan 30 1841. Aged about 79 years. ********************************* THOSE WRITING TO SANDERSON GENFORUM: Marlyn Howard Wilt, famtrees@juno.com Sheila Heaton, shotglassshelly@yahoo.com Diane Glodoski, idabdian@inpress.ent *************************** Karen Conley (klconley@webtv.net) says (4/02) she's found James on the tax lists in Boubon County, KY in the late 1700's and on the tax lists in Adams County, OH in 1805, 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809, 1810. **************** NOTE FROM KAREN CONLEY (klconley@webtv.net) While I can't be 100 percent certain that the James Sanderson on the tax list in Bourbor County, KY, is our James Sanderson, I feel almost certain that this is him, as living very close to him is William Moorman. Supposedly, William Moorman married Mary Sanderson in KY, then they and the Sandersons traveled north to Ohio. James Sanderson, Sr., is on the tax lists in Adams County, OH, for the years 1805, 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809, 1810. All of William and Mary Moorman's children were born in Adams County, including my ggg grandfather, Thomas Moorman, who stated in his military record that he was born in Adams County, but shaved ten years off his age in order to be able to enlist. ************************ Karen Conley has also come across an Alexander Sanderson who died in Ross County, OH, in 1805. Could be James' brother. ********************************* 1812 SOLDIERS . ROSTER OF OHIO SOLDIERS IN WAR OF 1812 99 Palm 144-145. Vol. 1, ROLL OF CAPT. LEMUEL CONNELLY'S C0MPANY (County Unknown). .

    A Kentuckian, removed to Ohio with his family in 1812, settling on the Hite survey, No. 1,223, consisting of one thousand acres, in this county. Two of his sons, James and Aleck, were active participants of the war of 1812, at the close of which they returned to their home, and assisted in tilling the soil. One of the sons, Harvey, whose son now resides on the old homestead, assisted in cutting out the first roads of this vicinity. The family followed an old Indian trace when removing from Kentucky. The elder Sandersons have long since gone to that country from whose bourne no traveler returns. Harvey, sen., died in 1876. His wife is still living at the advanced age of eighty-six.
