Catalogue Note

This powder horn was perhaps originally owned by David Sanders (d. 1785), who served in the Massachusetts militia during the Revolutionary War. He married Lydia Gifford of Sandwich, Massachusetts on March 17, 1770, while living in Wareham. They had five children: Abraham Sanders, Betsey (Sanders) Besse, Shepard Sanders, David Sanders and Jonathan Sanders. He died in Wareham on May 1, 1785. Another member of the Sanders family, David Sanders (1754-1836), served during the Revolutionary War in the New Hampshire militia of the Continental Army. He enlisted while living in Bath, New Hampshire. He married Hannah Putney on January 10, 1782 and they lived in Dunbarton, New Hampshire. He died on November 26, 1836.
