Henry Sanders, Jr., (1776-1844) settled in this county in 1795. Besides building Sanders Tavern, parts of which stood until about 1947, he also built "Clay Hill," the home of his son James Sanders. He assisted in the survey of the road built through Muldraugh's Hill, and in 1837, gave the land for Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, located nearby.
