I am of the Allen Wiggin Sanders line....

William Henry's funeral held at the Christian Church House in Troy, AL. I am sure his grave is unmarked and unknown.

Chattahoochee County [Boundary Change], Georgia
1860s
On the 1860 Census Records, our Henry is found living with son "Wm M. Sanders" [William Madison], in the Cusseta Post Office area of Chattahoochee County, Georgia [adjacent county, south of Muscogee].

I believe, from my grandfather's writings [Richard Baxter Sanders] in the 1950s, the family lived on or near Hitchity Creek, three miles south of Cusseta. In the mid-1970s, when I was stationed at Ft Benning, I drove many times over the creek's bridge [thinking about the old family] on the way to, the some distance, Interstate 75, to Florida.

Where they lived in Muscogee became part of Chattahoochee County.
