SANDERS, REUBEN HAINES: 1833-1908.

Reuben Haines Sanders was born in Greensburg, Pa., on Oct. 12, 1833, the son of James Steele and Mary Haines Sanders. The family settled in Lake County, Ind., in 1847 and moved near Crown Point in 1851. He attended district schools but was largely self-educated. He married Mary Ann Sutton on May 15, 1853, and they had two children. Converting to the Methodist faith, Sanders was licensed as an exhorter in 1854 and as a preacher in 1856. He was admitted to the Northwest Conference in 1863. He held pastorates in Indiana cities including Valparaiso, Hebron, Door Village, and La Porte . He retired in 1903 and was a resident of La Porte until his death in 1908. He was responsible for the building of a number of churches and was pro tempore chaplain of the state prison in Michigan City on several occasions.
