We do not know the relationship between this Julius Saunders, married to Jemimah Woodward, and Julius Sanders [8] who had a daughter Mary married to Phillip Hinson. Based on the dates alone, this Julius, husband of Jemimah Woodward, could be a brother to Mary, wife of Philip Hinson. We would be delighted to learn of more information about either Julius. [9]
