R P Sanders was Rebecca Peine Carter who had married Romulus Mitchell Saunders on December 27, 1812.
Legend has it that Mrs. Saunders died on the stagecoach and was buried when it stopped at Paynes Tavern. She is in an aboveground rock crept with imported carved top and set aside from the main cemetery. Additional information below.
The marriage of Arrena Moore and Stephen Wilkerson was a second marriage for each of them. He is buried in the Stephen Wilkerson Cemetery on Charlie Carr Road near Leas Chapel United Methodist Church.
