To My Henry Saunders Line
Mar 2005 Many researchers try to connect this line to Phillip Saunders. I find no proof of this. I did find that the book of William Gunnell put out by Karen Washburn and I quote:
"SARAH GUNNELL, b.   d. Sep 21, 1793 (Bible Record). Married JAMES SAUNDERS ; (b. circa   1719-1721; d. April 17, 1778 (Bible Record), a native of Scotland, who died in Loudoun County, Va. ".
Now it does not mention that the sister Elizabeth Gunnell married a brother or that William Saunders was from Scotland. I seems to me that both would be mentioned if that was the case. 
Also a Dolores Oiler who did extensive research on the Suanders in Virginia felt that my James was not connected to the Phillip line.
I loved working on this line. The connection through out history of America is strong in this line. This family has connections with Abraham Lincoln by marriage and by friendship. Also the daughter of Alvin SAUNDERS married a son of the second President Harrison and lived in the White House. Alvin Saunders a descendant was last territorial Governor of Nebraska.  I now have a page up telling about the Patent that reinstated Alvin SAUNDERS for his second term as territorial Governor of Nebraska.
