My great uncle also. My sister informed me of this page. I have heard so many things about him. The sanders family has a great history and strong roots in their community. The love that they had for each other was strong and they showed it. When they we're together one could since the love and respect they had for my grandmother (maggie sanders) who helped raise the younger ones after the death of their mother. 11 siblings in all! Many descendants still reside in Chagrin Fall and the Cleveland area.
