Malachi Madison Sanders should be a proven relative of William Henry Sanders via DNA Testing and paper trail: 35/37 and 24/25 markers [despite being a mismatch up front 11/12] and has a good paper trail, i.e. neighbor to William Henry Sanders and they went to same church. William Henry Sanders named a son Madison. See website on Malachi's family at: http://malachimadisonsanders.familytreeguide.com/ See Sanders/Saunders DNA Results [Group Eight = lime green] at: http://www.familytreedna.com/public/SandersDNA/default.aspx?section=yresults#yResults It also appears Richard [35/37] and John [35/37] are 25/25 exact DNA matches also, but they have no known paper trail, to date. But, normally, a relation within the 1700s should be at least a 36/37 match. Perhaps they only relate closely back 700 years or so. ======================================================================================== The timeframe of direct relation with common surname/ancestor according to FamilyTreeDNA.com 50% that 35/37 matches cross paths at 180 years back. year c1860 90% that 35/37 matches cross paths at 360 years back. year c1650 95% that 35/37 matches cross paths at 420 years back. year c1490 The point - we are related.....at some point.... ========================================================================================= Note from Angela Weaver: The will of a William Sanders, Warren County Georgia, dated April 10, 1797, leaves all of his possessions to his son, Henry Sanders. It is possible this William Sanders is the father of our William "Henry" Sanders. Need to research this more. Found on the Internet: Land Deeds: Moses Going "of Wilkes County" [Georgia] received a sheriff's deed to land sold as property of William Sanders March 7, 1799, according to Warren County [Georgia] Deed Book A, page 632. Pages 632-633: March 7, 1799, LEWIS WRIGHT, Sheriff of Warren Co. to MOSES GOING, whereas HENRY CANDLER & MOSES GOING each obtained a judgment in Inferior Court against WILLIAM SANDERS, 352 acres, the greater part of a grant to IGNATIUS FEW, June 18, 1793, adj. WOOTEN, WILLIAM, ALEXANDER…..LEWIS WRIGHT (SEAL). Wit: ANDERSON BERRY, JNO. MCMURRAIN (X). Rec. May 5, 1800. Another researcher is pointing to a James Sanders, as follows below, but this cannot be correct because there is a bible extract [attached to this record for reference only] for this family and doesn't match our DNA findings.: 29 NOV 1802, Oglethorpe County, Georgia.
