Descendants of David Anderson

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  David3 Anderson  ("Northern Neck"2, "Colonial Virginia"1) (Source: Library of Virginia, Virginia Land Office Patents and Grants,  (http://198.17.62.51/collections/LO.html), "Electronic.") was born Bef. 1634, and died Bef. 1679 in Stafford County, Virginia.  He married Elizabeth ?. 

 

Notes for David Anderson:

        David Anderson was an early resident of the base of the northern neck of Virginia.  The county name changes make it appear that he moved up the Potomac but I would have to carefully trace his land to determine if he moved at all.  In the 1750's there is a David Anderson in Westmoreland County which is his grandson.

 

David Anderson & Richard Coale

        100 acres NWly upon a creek dividing this from land of Hercules Bridges, 50 acres Nly upon said land and land of Henry Brookes.

28 Mar 1675.  A John Anderson [called the sloop man] and a James Green are mentioned in a deposition by Jane Burton.  Westmoreland County, Virginia Deeds, Patents, Etc., 1665-1677, pages 229 and 230.

Note 1:  Records clearly tie Andersons of Westmoreland to those in Stafford County.

 

Note 2:  Concerning the April 1675 record--clearly ties the Andersons of Stafford/Fairfax Counties to a branch of Andersons who went to Camden Co., SC.  That John Anderson's two oldest sons were named Bailey and Scarlett Anderson.  There other records showing association with a man whose last name was Brent.  This Anderson family had ties to Carneys (Kearneys) and Cliftons.

 

Note 3:  There is evidence to suggest that there was a David Anderson with son David and a grandson David.

Pat,

 

You asked about John and Sarah:

 

According to his great-great grandson, Boon Anderson, John Anderson was born in Scotland and brought to this country as a boy.  He married Sarah Carney in 1752 in Overwarton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia.

 

He and Sarah moved their family from Stafford County to Greenville County, South Carolina before the war with England.  John served his country from here in Benjamin Roebuck’s Company.  He was killed in the Battle of Augusta in 1781.

 

About 1795 virtually all of Sarah’s children left South Carolina and moved to Warren County, Kentucky.  She went with them.  Over the next

thirty years these children and their children scattered and settled in western Kentucky, Alabama, Indiana, Mississippi and Texas where most of them still have descendants.  Sarah died in Kentucky in 1811.

REV. JAMES ANDERSON NOT THE FATHER OF

JOHN ANDERSON WHO MARRIED SARAH CARNEY

 

        Probably twenty years ago, the assertion was made that the Rev. James Anderson was the father of our John Anderson.  As soon as it came to my attention, I started trying to track down the reason why this statement was made.  I didn't really doubt it, I just wondered how the connection was made.  What I learned was that it all seemed to hinge on the fact that someone had given January 13, 1724 as our John's birthdate.  Of course, that was when the Rev. James' son, John, was born. 

 

        My next step was to find out why this birthdate was assigned to our John.  I finally tracked it back to an elderly lady in Kentucky who, when I wrote to her, didn't have a clue where she had gotten the date or why she thought it was our John's. 

 

        Then, I assembled all the references I could find which had been offered as proof and tracked them back as far as I could and came up with the following sources:

 

Bible Record of Rev.  James Anderson - states only that he had a son, John, born January 13, 1724-5 in New York

Pennsylvania Genealogies by Wm.  Egle - only quotes the above Bible record

Immigrants to America Before 1750 by Virkus - quotes the above Bible records and adds that John "died young"

DAR Application of Mrs. Dena Henslee Singleton, Nat'l #526822 - I received a copy of this application which DAR had corrected to show that her ancestor John Anderson who married Sarah Carney was born January 13, 1724 in New York.  I wrote the Lineage Research Committee of NSDAR in Washington, D. C, regarding this entry, explaining the controversy over John's birthdate, etc.  On August 15, 1979, they sent a letter stating - "The birthdate written in on National No. 526822 Is completely incorrect.  That is the birthdate for John Anderson, son of Rev.  James Anderson, but this man is not your Revolutionary ancestor.  This man was married to Ann Irvin, From your records we know that your ancestor John Anderson was married to Sarah Carney. ...A date of circa 1730 has been given to your Revolutionary ancestor since we have no specific date for his birth."

 

The following, although it does not constitute proof,  must be considered as much of the information came from this John Anderson's own granddaughter:

 

Maxwell History and Genealogy by Florence Wilson Houston - 1916

 

        "The descendants of our John Anderson say he was the son of the Rev, James    Anderson of Donegal, Penn, and so far we have found nothing to disprove this,    while there is much that makes it conclusive, though it has been claimed by some         historians that he was the son of John or James Anderson of Augusta Countyp         Virginia."

 

                "In the will of James Anderson he mentions by name only his wife, a niece, his     daughter, Susanna, and the youngest son, Thomas, who was still a child and yet to         be educated....   After mentioning these he directs that his remaining property be 'divided among all my children'."

 

                "John, the seventh child of Rev.  James Anderson, was born January 13, 1724.  It         is recorded that he was born in New York, while his mother was visiting at the    home of a relative,     His early years were spent in Pennsylvania, but when still a youth he went to Virginia and the greater part of his active years were spent       there."

 

                "By various records-especially the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography   and the Chalkley Records, his path is made clear, For the more minute and    intimate details, as to his family, we have the long line of descendants given from         the personal knowledge of his granddaughter Martha (Anderson) Baugh, near the     middle of the last century...." (here follows a brief history of the Old Stone Church       of Augusta Co., Va.)

 

                "Reverting to John Anderson: He married, about 1750, Anna Irvine (Erwin).  The following list of their descendants is from Court Records and from data given more   than fifty years ago, by their granddaughter Martha (Anderson) Baugh, a daughter     of their son, William."....   (There is no question but that this is a completely         different line from ours.)

 

        What it all come down to is that (unless there is some documentation that I don't know about) is there is NO proof that our John Anderson who married Sarah Carney is the son of the Rev. James Anderson and very substantial proof that the Rev. James' son, John, married Ann Irvine (Erwin).

 

        If you have anything that would contradict this, I would be very interested in hearing about it.

Notes for Sarah Carney:

Posted by: Dan Page Date: February 01, 2002 at 21:10:36

   of 1721 

 

 

A Joshua Carney was in Stafford Co. in 1760, and continued to appear there on tax lists until at least 1789. The 1773 list shows him with 40 acres. Apparently living with him was a Benjamin Carney whose taxes were charged to Joshua, so perhaps Benjamin was his son. We do not know whether or how Joshua and Benjamin were related to the John Carney who md Mary, though that appears quite likely. Joshua filed a claim for having performed public service during the Rev. War.

 

A Joshua Carney received a land grant Dec. 26, 1803, in Stafford Co.: Description: 11 1/2 acres on both sides of the north run of Chappawamsick adjoining land of Sudden, and Green. Benjamin received land grants about the same time, including two grants in 1805 in nearby Prince William Co. (Also, Carney, Joshua Public Service Claim, Rev. War)

 

There are no Carney's in the Stafford County, Virginia will indexes for 1729-1767.

 

Apparently the John and Mary Carney family united with the Chopawamsic Baptist Church:

The following declaration, copied from the records at the Virginia State Library, was the genesis for the

Chopawamsic Baptist Church:

 

"Here, in the Colony of Virginia firmly desiring to be constituted and established into a distinct church of the

same denomination, faith and order and being at our request freely dismissed for that purpose from the church in

Fauquier aforesaid. And appears by a letter signed by several members of that congregation ---- date August

9th, 1766. Hoping it may be to the glory of God and our edification, these subscribers in the presence of God

solemnly unite as a religious body to worship him, to celebrate his ordinances, to manifest his truth and to

promote his honor in the world....."

The declaration concluded:

"That all disputes may as far as possible be avoided and peace, concord and unity maintained by the blessing of

God for which we pray and in testimony of our union herein we have all set our hand this day of our constitution

being the 22nd day of November 1766." Among the many registrants were:

Mary Anderson, John Carney, Mary Carney, Absalam Carney, Sary Carney, and Joshisa (sic) Carney.

(Fauquier County,Virginia was formed 1 May 1759 from Prince William County, Virginia.)

 

Apparently the general area where the Carneys were - John, Thomas, Joshua, Benjamin, Absalom, Sarah, ... was in what is now the Quantico Marine Base reservation. I think it likely that the Absalom and Joshua on the above petition were NOT children of John and Mary, because of their ages, and the lack of other children's names on the list.

I've been doing some research lately on the John Chapman who is connected to Sarah Carney.  In your website under the descendants of

John Anderson and Sarah Carney you list the following:

" Charlotte Anderson, born Abt. 1763.  She married John Chapman (Source: Brøderbund WFT Vol. 1, Ed. 1, Tree #0371, Date of Import:  Jan 24, 1996)."

 

The original source, WFT #0371, actually names her "Jane Doe Anderson". Could you tell me where you obtained the name Charlotte?  I would apreciate any help you can give me.

Notes for Bailey Anderson:

Capt. Bailey Anderson, Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth (McFadden) Hardwick, are both most likely buried in a private plot on the farm they then owned, the location of which I am unaware, but in the general area of Gholson, Texas. His was an interesting career, including his efforts in the Militia as Commanding Officer at the Battle of Nacogdoches, the first military encounter of the Texas War of Independence. For his services to the Republic he was awarded a parcel of land in the Ayish Bayou near San Augustine, and on which his father, Bailey Anderson, Sr., is buried, at which site the State has erected a granite Memorial stone in his honor.

***The Revolutionary War Service of my ancestor John Anderson***

(Husband of Sarah, father of Scarlett, Joshua, and Bailey Anderson Sr)

  William Anderson b 28 Nov 1765 d 11 Feb 1845 was the son of John Anderson & Sarah [Carney]. In his own Bible he wrote that his father John Anderson was killed by American Tories at Augusta, 1780, and that his Mother Sarah was b 1739 and d 1811 Ky. G/f John was killed at the 1st Seige of Augusta, Sept 10-18, 1780.

   In a paper passed down in my line, it is written that G/f John and his son Bailey Anderson Sr (1754-1840) left for battle TOGETHER but his father John did not return. The Natl Archives Record S.30-286 being the records of Bailey Anderson Sr (1754-1840) detail his service under General Bridges and Capt Clark at the 1st Seige of Augusta, Ga.

   G/f John Anderson and his son Scarlett Anderson both received Bounty Land for their service in Georgia. I have the documents.

   I have done this many times over the past 8-10 years but NEVER have I been as meticulous as I was today - I just spent more than 9 hours carefully pouring over all of the pages in g/f John's SC Archives & History Rev War File (A.A.115). The pages I have are all in the original handwriting so I had to scrutinize each detail in the information given on each page and note it in such a way as to recognize anything that excludes whichever John Anderson can not possibly be g/f John Anderson.

   In Audited Account 115, ONLY file X3341 (Indent #3341, Book  X) pertains to g/f John.

   The rest of the pages in HIS file (A.A.115) appear to belong to a John Sr and a John Jr but both were living after 1780 plus I compared this John Jr to the signature of uncle John Anderson on g/m Sarah's reapplication for pension 11 Nov 1807 and no way are they the same man's signature. ALSO, one of these John's made arrangements for a William Anderson to receive his Indents as he had moved to NC - I compared this William's signature to William Anderson's, son of g/p John & Sarah, writing in his Bible and again, no way.

   If I had to guess, I think this John Anderson Sr was Capt John Anderson who died in the hospital at Camden, NC (yes, NC!).

   Anyway, according to g/f John Anderson's file A.A.115 X3341 he served only in Col. Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment before and after the fall of Charleston, the same is true for Uncle Scarlett Anderson file A.A.124 X3343, and Uncle Joshua Anderson file A.A.117 X3342.

   Now..how do I KNOW for SURE that g/f John Anderson's Rev War service file is X3341...??? Because attached to it is g/m Sarah [Carney] Anderson's first <BR> petition (20 May 1786) requesting payment of the Indent as the widow of John Anderson and the mother of Scarlett and Joshua Anderson. The Indent it is attached to is dated 7 Jun 1786.

   Audited Account 114: I find it most curious that Indents for g/f John, uncle Scarlett, and uncle Joshua actually show that when written they were ALL "AUDITED ACCOUNT #114" - not A.A.115, 117, 124 !!!!  I think what happened was our earlier cousins identified the Capt John Anderson, John Anderson Jr, and John Anderson Sr as grandpa and his son so the files were put together as one family, i.e., g/f John, uncle John Jr, uncle Scarlett, uncle Joshua. When in fact, Capt John, John Sr, John Jr were completely different persons.

Hi, Patrick,

 

My name is Lorie Williams.  My husband is a descendent of Dorcas Anderson, b Nov. 13, 1766, in Spartanburg, SC.  I saw your family tree posted on Rootsweb.com.  I wanted to let you know that there is an error on your tree.  Dorcas Anderson was married to Benjamin Franklin Barton, not J. Benjamin Barton.  J. Benjamin Barton was one of their 14 children.   Benjamin was a very common name in the Barton family so it is very easy to confuse them.  I have extensive information on the descendents of Benjamin Franklin Barton and Dorcas Anderson, especially the descendents of J. Benjamin (the line my husband is from) which I would be happy to share with you.  Because of the volume, it might be easier if I printed it off and mailed it to you.  A lot of the information is also contained in The Barton Book printed by the Barton Historical Society.  There was a revised edition of the book printed in 1994 and a supplement was printed in 1999.  These can be ordered at the Barton Family website which is www.Bartonsite.org.  I look forward to hearing from you.
