My compliments on beautiful and informative sites.  I went to Somerset County 
last fall and obtained a copy of this estate record and would be happy to 
send you a copy.  I am witting to tell you that the name was spelled both 
SADORUS and SADDORIS on it.  But not Sarodorus as is listed here.  There is
already confusion about the spelling of the name and no need to increase it!
The index shows the spelling this way for both 1805 and 1837 but both are 
incorrect.  You have it correctly for 1837 which is again Saddoris.
