William Aaron's ancestors

I've found two ancestors of William Aaron Sanders on another web site, possible match but I will have to verify this:

Lewis Sanders, b. abt 1690 in Scotland

His son: Francis Sanders b. 1715 in Virginia.

I still need to get more details, and there is, so far, no paper trail to these two. Also, need their wives' names. But so far, looks like Francis is the father of William Aaron Sanders.

William Aaron's wife, Joanna Joan Bailey

Joanna Joan Bailey was born abt 1745 in Virginia. I have been trying to trace her family (as have a lot of other researchers on this line!) and so far have had no luck. However, I did find an interesting clue. My ancestor, William Aaron and Joanna's youngest son, was named Nimrod. Now until recently, he was thought to be named after William Aaron's mother's maiden name. But recent DNA testing has eliminated them as his parents, leaving me to believe he was possibly named after someone in the Bailey family. There are no other Nimrod Sanders in this line until him. I have found a family in Westmoreland, Va with family members named Nimrod. When I find more, I will post them.
