Sanders-Henderson Connection VA>KY>IL

ELIZA ANNA HENDERSON, daughter of John and Anna (Provine) Henderson, was born July 15, 1822 in Monroe County, Indiana. She married on July 17, 1840 in Greene County, Illinois, Carey Henderson SANDERS (her first cousin).
She died July 12, 1842, only a few days after giving birth to her daughter. Carey Henderson SANDERS was born in 1810 in Wayne Co Ky to Francis Marion SANDERS(b. abt 1780 TN and d.1836 Wayne Co KY) and (possibly) Elizabeth A Henderson(b. 12 Jan 1782 Virginia and d. 01 Feb 1858 KY?). I am descended from Carey Henderson SANDERS and his second wife, Elizabeth Allen.

I have not been able to connect Elizabeth A. Henderson to the Hendersons from Virginia>Granville NC>Hawkins Co TN to make Eliza and Carey first cousins. Were Elizabeth and John brother and sister? Or was the claim that they were first cousins just family lore.

Any help would be appreciated.
