MJ, I'm sorry I don't have any information about Sanders. I do know that James Pendarvis, son of Joseph and Parthena, did own property in the Beech Hill area. Here is what he says in his will: Item it is my will and desire, that my granddaughter Ann Pendarvis, shall be furnished with the use of a sufficient Quantity of Land, on one of my plantations at Beech Hill, for her hands to plant and cultivate, during her unmarried state of life and no longer. Item I give, devise and bequeath unto my beloved Grandson William Pendarvis, All my Land at Beech Hill. (subject to the restriction above mentioned) whenever he arrives to the age of Eighteen years, also one team of Oxen, to him and his heirs forever. Item I give and bequeath unto my beloved Grandsons by my daughter Ann Perry, as well those which shall hereafter be born of her, as those that are now in existence, all my lands at Horse Savanna, and Spoon Savanna, and should my Grand Son William Pendarvis depart this life before he arrives to the Age of Eighteen Years, I then give, devise and bequeath unto them also All my Lands at Beech Hill. (subject to the restriction above) etc. etc.

17 April 1770, James Pendarvis bought a parcel of land from William Norman and Mary his wife, containing 300 acres, in St. Paul's Parish, at a place called Beech Hill, in the province aforesaid Butting and Bounding Southeastward on Lands laid out to John Simmons ....all other sides on vacant land ....
James Pendarvis bought several other parcels which deeds state his land is in the vicinity of Beech Hill. But these two records will suffice to prove that he did reside at Beech Hill.

I hope this will help some. J. Bernice Robinson
