Calvin was born in 1847 in Tishomingo County, Mississippi. His parents moved to Arkansas in 1850 and stayed there until after the Civil War. During the war he served briefly in Earnest's local defense company, but he was only sixteen at the war's end and was the only one of his brothers who did not join the army on either side. (His father served first as a Confederate and then joined the Union forces.) After the war, the family moved back to Booneville in Tishomingo, which in 1869 was made part of Prentiss County. He died between 1877-1880 in Prentiss County, Mississippi.

He married Mary Clark (her maiden name comes from family tradition but has not been verified by documentation) about 1868 and they had four children:

Rebecca Sanders born September 1869,probably the same individual as "Reda" or "Redie" Sanders who married Benjamin F. Butler.

Mary, born 1871

Sarah Caldona Sanders born 1874, married Robert Benjamin Ellis

Isaac Sanders born March 27, 1877, married Alice Spears
