In the settlement made at Sandy Bluff, the name of Saunders appears. John, George and William Saunders
were the first of the name there. Bishop Gregg, on p.71, says: "Of the settlers at Sandy Bluff,
the Murfees, Saunders, Gibsons and Crawfords accumulated the largest properties". The name Saunders
has become extinct in Marion County - not one of the name in the county, to the knowledge of the
writer. Old John Saunders took up large grants of land between Catfish and Great Pee Dee. They
came from England. John Saunders had two sons, George and Thomas.
