From Josepha Albrecht Pedigree

There has been no evidence presented that Ann was a Sanders. It is much more likely that she was the daughter of George Pley. The naming of a Berry grandson George Pley Berry, son of Sarah Harper who married John Spiller, is the major clue. Sarah was first married to Henry Berry (son of Henry and Ann Berry) before marrying Spiller. (See 1714 deed from Spiller to George Pley Berry, son of Sarah.) Also Henry Berry sold 200 acres of adjoining property on Occupacia Creek to George Pley in 1662."
