Captain Ephraim SANDERS, who for many years resided in Mendham, was a general blacksmith and a leading mechanic in iron. He was probably descended from Christopher SAUNDERS, who came from London to America about 1680, and located at Bridlington, afterward Burlington, New Jersey.

Captain SANDERS married Sarah RODGERS, whose mother was a SWEAZY, while her father was a direct descendant of john ROGERS, the martyr. Their eldest daughter Nancy married Samuel Loree AXTELL. Two of the sons were graduates of Yale College. One of them, Rev. E.D. SAUNDERS, D.D., was the founder of the Presbyterian Hospital at Philadelphia.
