John Sanderlin & Sarah Barecock

Sally’s 5-great Grandparents:

John Sanderlin ca 1685 – 1747 | his parents
& Sarah Barecock ca 1690 – ?ca 1752 | her parents
of Pasquotank County, North Carolina

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

John Sanderlin may be the son of James Sanderlin whose son James was accidently killed at a muster in Oct 1694 in North Carolina.

Sarah Barecock was the daughter of Thomas Barecock [who wrote his will 1 Jan 1721/22] and his wife who was a daughter of William Jennings.

  1. Hello Sally’s Place,
    Robert Sandilands/Sanderlin/Sandlin born about 1790, died 1864 is my fourth great grandfather. He married Elizabeth Hicks in 1822. The marriage was in Camden County, Georgia. They promptly moved to Spanish territory in what was the Benton area of the Saint Mary’s River, Suwannee River, and Alapaha Rivers. They established a substantial plantation there. This plantation adjoined the Turner family plantation. Robert Sanderlin fought the Seminole Indians.

    It seems that Robert had a sister named Tabitha. She married a Roberts.

    I’ve much of the same information that you have and more. I cannot satisfy myself as to who Robert’s father was. Can you help?

    I do have a lot more information on other Sandilands/Sanderlins/Sandlins that I can help others with.

    Thank You,

    1. Robert Sanderlin Jr. and Mary Waff had sons Benjamin and Joseph.
      Benjamin died early leaving three children: a boy, a girl and a third child born after the 1790 census. I strongly suggest that Benjamin is the father of your Robert and Tabitha.
