Sanders, Edward, A minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was a native of Maryland, and grew up to manhood without religious influences. In early manhood, however, he was brought to see his condition, and found peace in believing. He entered the itinerant ministry as a member of the Philadelphia Conference in 1834, and continued in that Conference until the New Jersey Conference was set off. The remainder of his effective ministry was passed in the latter Conference. While in charge of the River Church, his health failed, and, taking a supernumerary relation, he settled in Pennington, N.J., where he died, Dec. 31, 1859. His life was a rebuke to infidelity and a comfort to Christians. — Minutes of Annual Conf. 1860, p. 39.
