Hi,

 

Just what you needed --- another Robert Anderson!

 

Actually, I'm really excited because I think I've pieced together the Andersons puzzle.

 

I sent you two a note about Robert Anderson in Botetourt Co.  Well, yes,  there is a Robert Anderson buried in the Fincastle Presbyterian Church.

 

Data indicates that :

 

Robert Anderson (ca 1740 - 1825) emigrated to America in 1755.  He lived first in Del. where he married Margaret Neeley.  The settled in Botetourt County early in 1770.  Their children are:  William, John, Robert, James, Rebecca, and Margaret who married Benjamin Denton in 1793.  Robert and Margaret Anderson's son William is a Revolutionary War patriot.

 

If you know of anyone connected with this line, please let me know.

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Pat

I looked back on my Family Tree Maker info where I am keeping my findings and this is what I have:

 

Robert Anderson was born in Ireland about 1733.  He died in VA 7/22/1825.  He emigrated to PA in 1755, moved to Delaware where he met and married Margaret Neely.  They moved to VA in 1769 and settled in Augusta Co. which later became known as Botetourt the next year.  He had as many as three children:  Col. William Anderson (born 6/2/1764, died 9/13/1839), Francis Thomas Anderson who married Mary Anne Alexander, and Catherine Anderson who married Arthur Glasgow.  Col. Anderson spent time in the Revolutionary War, then settled at "Walnut Hill," near Fincastle which was the county seat for Botetourt. He was also a colonel of a VA regiment in the War of 1812.  He married Anne Thomas from Maryland.  William was a self-taught engineer and surveyor and was later responsible for the building of the turnpike that is now U.S. 220 and U.S. 60 from Fincastle to Covington and beyond.  He is buried along with other members of his family at the Presbyterian Cemetery in Fincastle.  They had several children, one of which was in our direct lineage, Joseph Reid Anderson (born 2/16/1813, died 9\7\1892).  He established the Tredegar Iron Works in Richmond, VA, in 1836, which was the main supplier of ammo, etc., to the South in the Civil War.  He was a very prominent citizen of the Richmond area.  He was married to Sara (Sallie) Archer, whose father was Dr. Robert Archer, an army surgeon.  They had several children, some of which died at fairly young ages.  Archer Anderson was also in the military and, I think, became pretty famous.  He had a son named after him, Joseph Reid, Jr., and our family member was John Francis Thomas Anderson.  We cannot find out much about him, so we don't know exactly how he fits into things.  John F. T. Anderson (born 2/9/1858, died 9/27/1931) married Elizabeth Campbell Cullen, who was the granddaughter of Dr. John Cullen, who was one of the founders of what is now Medical College of VA, here in Richmond.  The only child we know of that they had (of course, they could have had more) was Sally Reid Anderson who married William Jerome Miller.  He was from NY, and they were the parents of my husband's mother.  A lot of the Anderson family, starting with Joseph Reid, is buried here in Richmond at the Hollywood Cemetery. 

 

That's it in a fairly quick summary.  If this is something you are looking for and I can fill in some more of the blanks, please let me know.  I will be glad to give you as much info as I have.

 

Thanks for responding to me.  You can reach me at pgibbes@erols.com where I check my mail a little more often than I do on AOL.  We have access to it only when it isn't in use at my husband's place of business.  Thanks!

April 4, 1848 - bought Tredegar Ironworks

 

Tredegar Ironworks- Established in 1836, the company got a shaky start and almost went bankrupt in 1841.  A West Point graduate, Joseph Reid Anderson, joined the firm as a sales agent that year.

 

On April 17, 1861, news of the secession reached Richmond.  Anderson promptly joined the army of Northern Virginia, achieving general's rank, but was soon asked by General Robert E. Lee to return to Tredegar Ironworks to manage the ironworks of which Lee's victory was so dependent.

 

Richmond fell in 1865 and Anderson again showed his leadership abilities, routing a force of 2500 armed Tredegar employees to turn away the burning city's looters and vandals, thus saving the iron from desturction.  They were pardoned by Johnson and Anderson brought Tredegar back.

 

In 1847, he moved his family to a columned stucco mansion at 113 West Franklin Street in Richmond, VA, on the sloping lot where the Jefferson Hotel now stands.

He was a vestryman at St. Paul's Church.  He was a member of the House of Delegates in Richmond in 1873-74 and 1874-75.  He was elected senion warden at St. Paul's Church in 1873, president of the Chamber of Commerce in 1874, and president of the City Council in 1876.
