I was born in Harrodsburg, Ky. in 1946. My mom and dad ran a grocery store in Cornishville on the Chaplin river in Mercer county until 1953 when we moved to Cardwell, a farming community in Washington county, about 5 miles west of Cornishville.
My mother was a Sanders, Allene, her father was Virgil, mother Ida Mae Seay. My mom's siblings were, Wallace, Hollis, Pete, Venetta, Magdalene and Virginia, all deceased. They lived in Washington county not far from Willisburg.
I knew some Yeast(pronounced Yates) families in Cornishville and Cardwell areas. Marshall and Ernest were brothers.
I do not recall Gritton or Sanford families.
A lady did extensive research on the Sanders surname. I think her name was Faye Sanders Seay, She published a book which may be available at your library. She lived in St. Matthews, Ky. but is now deceased.
I have a friend who may have more info for you if you need it.
