“He pursued his preparatory studies at the Academy in Williamstown, entered Williams College in 1842, and graduated in 1846. After two years spent in teaching, he entered Auburn Theological Seminary, graduating in 1851. He was ordained at Williamstown, July 17, 1851, and on the 31st of the next October, sailed with his wife from Boston as a missionary of the A.B.C.F.M. for Ceylon, arriving at Madras, India, Feb. 21, 1852. From thence he proceeded to Ceylon, where he was stationed successively at Batticotta, Chavagacherry, Tillipally, and again at Batticotta. In 1859 a Training and Theological School was opened at Batticotta, which was place under his personal charge. In the autumn of 1864, he was granted a leave of absence from the mission, and, with his family, sailed for America, where he arrived July 25, 1865. After a visit of two years, he and his wife returned to Ceylon, leaving their five sons with friends in this country. Mrs. Sanders died at Batticotta of  pleurisy, Nov. 2, 1868, in the forty-third year of her age. The following year he returned again to America, for the purpose of raising funds for founding a college at Jaffna. While in this country he married the second time, and. With his wife, sailed for Ceylon from New York, May 10, 1871, arriving at their destination the fourth of the next July. Eight weeks later, he died suddenly of apoplexy, Tuesday, Aug. 29, 1871.” (Contributed by Dr. J. A. Sanders.)

Mrs. Sanders died of Pneumonia, the result, apparently, of a severe cold caught on a chilly day, when she was returning with her husband from Aleppo, where they had thought of taking up their permanent home. Mr. and Mrs. Fuller, of Aintab, thus wrote of her: “She was one of the most widely loved and useful of our whole mission; was active and earnest to the last, and her loss will be keenly felt by the native women. It was touching to see their grief at the funeral.” (See Missionary Herald, April, 1888.)
