Research notes:

According to some records, Mary Saunder's father was Julius Sanders, son of William Sanders and Mary Hall of Nansemond, Virginia (see the will of William Sanders, shown here as the father of this Julius Sanders). We do not know the relationship between this Julius Sanders, with daughter Mary married to Phillip Hinson, to the Julius Saunders who married Jemimah Woodward [see the 1755 note, above, for marriage]. Based on the dates, Julius, husband of Jemimah Woodward, could be a brother to Mary, wife of Philip Hinson. Our webpage for Julius Saunders married to Jemimah Woodward is at Genealogy web page for Julius Sanders married to Jemimah Woodward.
