<Hello Christine,

I have some news about one of the descendants of John Anderson found on your page at:   <A HREF="http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/others/johna.html">Click here: Descendants of John Anderson</A>

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/others/johna.html

I wrote to you last month and told you of finding Elizabeth Anderson there and thinking she was my fifth great grandmother who married Robert Carruth (listed there as Caruth).  Elizabeth is listed as number 36.  I have since figured out that even though the information for Elizabeth (#36) does not match my fifth great grandmother's, it does match for another Anderson/Carruth union.  I will copy notes from another letter I wrote to the Carruth E-mail list for this subject below.  You will see that the information I have is for a Mary Anderson instead of Elizabeth Anderson.  I hope that maybe there was a combining of Mary and Elizabeth's information on marrying someone named Caruth or Carruth and you may have something on Elizabeth Anderson that married Robert Carruth.  I look forward to hearing back from you on what you think of this. 

Best wishes,

Harvey Carrouth

<<   I found one thing knew to report that may interest some of you.  Adam CarruthÆs son Robert Carruth married Elizabeth Anderson.  Robert lived in Rowan Co., N.C. on the plantation of his father until he was 16.  His father sold the Rowan Co. plantation in 1762 and moved to Mecklenburg Co., N.C. buying land along Paw Creek of close  to 1000 acres.  As an adult, Robert bought and sold land in soon to be Rutherford, Lincoln, and Polk Counties, N.C.  He married Elizabeth Anderson in 1770 and they lived early married life in Rutherford Co., N.C. before moving to Ga.  They are found on the 1790 Census in Rutherford Co., N.C.  They moved to Ga. within a few years

 where Robert is found paying taxes as early as 1793 in Wilkes County, Ga. 

 

   I have thought that ElizabethÆs family could be found documented at the following address:  <http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/others/johna.html>

 There is an Elizabeth Anderson listed as number 36.  Her father is listed above her as number 7.  He was Robert Anderson (John2, John1) and died in Abbeville Co., South Carolina.  He married Ann Thompson in November 1765 in Virginia.  This Elizabeth would not be RobertÆs wife if she were born after 1765.  Elizabeth is listed here as:

 36   iii. Elizabeth Anderson.  She married (1) Robert Maxwell.  She married (2)  Caruth.

 Notes for Robert Maxwell:

 !(1) "Gleanings of Virginia History," by William Fletcher Boogher (19 65) p.314.

  FHL #975.5 H2bw.

 (1) "Of the Revolution."

 

   After checking for other possibilities of who this Elizabeth may have married I found that she did marry a Carruth and this was her second marriage.  This is documented in Mrs. Lela Grant CarruthÆs book, ôFrom Whence Ye Cameö published in 1982.  On page 106 and 107 Adam Carruth-3 (Alexander-1, Robert-2) is shown marrying Mrs. Mary Anderson Maxwell Carruth before 25 Jan. 1810.  There is also a short history about MaryÆs family shown here.  MaryÆs first husband Colonel Robert Maxwell was an officer under General Robert Anderson (MaryÆs father).  Robert Maxwell was the first sheriff of Greenville Co., S.C. and was killed from ambush 10 Nov. 1797.  So this information matches for the above except the information from the web page was for Elizabeth.  Perhaps the Elizabeth Anderson that married Robert Carruth is on this page as well and I have not found her there yet.  The  information for this Anderson family matches pretty closely with the information for the Carruth family.  It is noted for Robert Anderson that Anderson Co., SC was named for him.  I found a couple of web sites with information to back this statement of the naming of the county at:

Hello,

 

I've found a web site I wanted to share with you that has Elizabeth Anderson married to "Caruth" (second marriage).  I believe this Elizabeth is Robert's wife.  Robert Carruth (often found as Caruth in Virginia and N. Carolina) was a son of immigrating ancestor Adam Carruth.  Robert and Elizabeth are my 5th great grandparents (Carruth).  Also, I believe Elizabeth's father Robert or her brother Robert, also found at this web site, is the Robert Anderson that Adam Carruth mentioned in his will.  The web site is found at:

 <A HREF="http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/others/johna.html">Descendants of John Anderson</A>

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/others/johna.html

Many thanks go to Mrs. A. Christine Davidson Kraft who provided the information for the above page.  Also, many thank go to Patrick Anderson for adding the above to his web site at:

 <A HREF="http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/virginia.html">Colonial Virginia ANDERSON Families</A>

http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~anderson/virginia.html

 

One more stone unturned and so many left to find.

Best wishes to all of you,

Harvey Carrouth

Dear Patrick,

I found your webpage and gedcom. I am most interested in James Anderson who married Agnes Craig. I have Sarah Anderson b 29 Aug 1792, she first married a man by the name of Gibson (Gipson), but shortly after their marriage he was thrown from a horse a killed. Sarah then married Stacy Collins. I noticed you have Isaac Anderson listed as a brother to Sarah, (and son of James and Agnes). You show this Isaac Anderson to have married Terese Powell. My Sarah Anderson had a brother who also married Terese Powell. There is also another brother Asa Johnathon Anderson who married a Welch girl. I have a problem here, as your file shows that Sarah married someone completely different. I am wondering if I have the correct parents for my Sarah. Can you check these out for me. Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

Lori Walters Lampkins

Thanks to everyone for your kind responses to my query -- in spite of

the fact that I'm not an Anderson.  One of the responses sent me looking

for a Jane Anderson in Panola County, Texas, in the mid-1800s.  I

haven't found her yet, but I did find the following that might be of

interest to someone:

 

In the book, History of Panola County, Texas, page 167, there is

discussed a John Erwin Anderson, b.c. 1796 in the Greenville District,

SC, to William Anderson (b.c. 1765, Augusta County, VA) and Elizabeth

Easley.  He was one of eight children and the first of three sons.

 

John Erwin Anderson married Cynthia Dunlap Harper on August 10, 1816, in

what is now Clarke County, Alabama.  Cynthia was one of twin daughters

born to James Harper and his wife Mary (Polly) Easley.  Her twin sister

was Elizabeth Finch Harper who married Joel Mallory and came to Panola

County with John Erwin and Cynthia.  They lived in the area of Panola

County that was created out of Harrison County, TX.  His brother William

Gowen Anderson was there also.

 

They had seven children:

 

Permelia B. Anderson (b. 1818 in Alabama) m. Lewis L. Parham.  She lived

in Panola County.

Elizabeth Anderson (b. 1821 in Alabama) m. William H. Lacy

James H. Anderson (b. 1823 in Alabama) nothing more is known about him

Mary Caroline Anderson (b. 1826 in Alabama) m. Patrick C. Shahan, August

12, 1845, Harrison Co.

Pricilla C. Anderson (b. 1830 in Alabama) m. Samuel W. McMahan, August

17, 1848

Willie Ann Anderson (b. 1834 in Alabama) m. William H. Davis on November

10, 1858, Panola Co.

Cynthia Jane Anderson (b. 1836 in Alabama) m. Brooks D. Holland.  Lived

in Panola County.

 

His father, William Anderson, was the son of John Anderson and Ann

Erwin.  John Anderson's parents were James and Jean Anderson (her maiden

name is represented by a question mark) who came to America from

Scotland, arriving first in Philadelphia and going thence to Augusta

County. 

 

Ann Erwin was the daughter of Matthew and Elizabeth Erwin of Augusta

County.  Elizabeth Easley Anderson was the daughte of Lt. John Easley

and his wife, Ann Gowen.  Elizabeth Easley Anderson died October 27,

1843, in Sumter County, Alabama.  William, her husband died February 11,

1845 in the same county.

I was told you might come help me decipher the ancestors of Bailey Washington Anderson.  I believe he was a descendant of John Anderson, brother to Rev. James Anderson. know his parents were William Anderson and Elizabeth Easley. William's parents were John Anderson and Ann Erwin. I believe John's parents were John Anderson and Jane ?. Do you know if this John Anderson, born 1710 in Scotland is a son or grandson of John Anderson brother to Rev. James Anderson?

 

I would greatly appreciate any information you have.

 

Thanks

(3) 1848-1850: Samuel Langhorne CLEMENS (Mark Twain) was apprentice d to him as

 a printer. Twain wrote in his autobiography that Joseph's spinster s ister

 Judith lived with Joseph. Twain thought Joseph to be stingy, remembe ring him

 and Sarah, his wife, with distaste. He had to sleep on the printing- house

 floor and got meager portions of food. He was to get 2 suits of clot hes a

 year, but got only one, the other being Joseph's old clothes, whic h were too

 big. He described Joseph as a short, unimaginative man who ran his p aper

 primarily as a political organ. Joseph liked Samuel, though, and mad e him

 subeditor of the "Courier." During the same period, Joseph's nephew , Thomas

 Pettus "Pet" McMURRY, was also employed there as a journeyman printe r. (5)

 Samuel CLEMENS complained that there was not enough food and littl e variety in

 it. At first he and the other apprentices had to eat in the kitche n with the

 old slave cook and her daughter. "Mr. AMENT, the editor and propriet or of the

 paper, allowed me the usual emolument of the office of apprentic e - that is

 to say, board and clothes, but no money. The clothes consisted of tw o suits

 a year but one of the suits always failed to materialize and the oth er suit

 was not purchased so long as Mr. AMENT's old clothes held out. I wa s only

 about half as big as AMENT, consequently his shirts gave me the unco mfortable

 sense of living in a circus tent, and I had to turn up his pants t o my ears

 to make them short enough." In the earliest picture of Sam CLEMENS, a

 daguerrotype, taken when he was about 15, he looks as though he is w earing a

 too large, fancy shirt. In the picture he is holding the letters S, A and M in

 a composing stick.

(14) 1849, 19 Apr: Was editor of the "Missouri Courier."

(22) 1849, 15 Oct: Was a representative from Hannibal, MO to the Nati onal

 Railroad Convention in St. Louis to consider the possibility of an e ast-west

 proselyting Democrat in a county strongly Whig.

(5) 1852, 2 Mar: When a fire started in a shop nearby to Orion CLEMEN S'

 newspaper shop, AMENT, on his own, moved out their essential equipme nt

 before Orion and Samuel got there.

(1a) 1852, 24 Jul: R.N. Anderson, editor of the "Tri-Weekly Messanger ," wrote:

 "We are really sorry to see our neighbor of the Courier keep in so b ad a

 humor. If he had a few little responsibilities at home in the shap e of boys

 and girls to cling around him and welcome him home with their smilin g happy

 faces, it would keep him in better temper; he is the most fretful, p eevish,

 corss-grained, ill-natured, sour tempered, scolding, abusive littl e brat we

 have met with. Well, Joe, we are very sorry for you and do hope fo r your own

 sake, you will not always remain in this unfortunate condition. Real ly, we

 fear the fellow will blow up some day and utterly demolish his littl e sanctum,

 paper and all. Don't fret Joe, you know there is some hope yet, neve r depair,

 but trust to the Lord and try to keep your temper."

(5) 1852, 16 Sep: While Samuel CLEMENS was temporarily editing his br other

 Orion's newspaper, the "Hannibal Journal," he wrote a story abou t a local

 editor fleeing a fire in the public hall the week before, and greatly

 ridiculed him. Later, CLEMENS admitted that he lampooned two promine nt men

 who did not deserve such treatment just to make the paper lively. Th ere was

 no response in AMENT's paper.

(5,12,15) 1852, Nov: Sold the "Missouri Courier" in Hannibal. Went o n a trip to

 VA. (5) A report of the sale of the "Missouri Courier" was given i n the

 "Hannibal Journal," which was edited and owned by Orion CLEMENS, Sam uel

 CLEMENS' brother, 25 Nov 1852: "Mr. J.P. AMENT of the Missouri Couri er has

 sold that establishment to Messrs. L.D. BARRON, J.P. HINTON, and Wil liam L.

 BROWN. Mr. AMENT's ability made him an efficient supporter of his pa rty

 principles, while his courtesy, and uniformly manly course, procure d him many

 friends among his opponents. We heartily wish him success wherever h e may bend

 his steps, and in whatever business he may undertake - except making

 proselytes to his party."

(5) 1852, 1 Dec: The "Whig Messenger" of Hannibal said of him, "We un derstand

 that this gentleman, who, for the past eight or ten years, has condu cted the

 Courier newspaper with marked ability, leaves the West in a few day s for

 Richmond, Virginia, where he will spend the winter, and in March nex t will

 proceed to Washington to accept an honorable and lucrative employmen t."

(1a) 1853, 23 Apr: Orion Clemens, in the "Hannibal Daily Journal,"

 wrote, "We are glad to welcome back our old friend, J.P. Ament, wh o will 'take

 his position' at Palmyra (in?) ten or twelve days. General Price's a ppointment

 of this gentleman to the office of receiver was welcomed with much

 gratification by the democratic party of this section, and we may (s ay?) of the

 whole state; for, as a citizen of Hannibal, we have the right to sa y with

 some degree of (pride?), that his paper was acknowledged by all part ies, to be

 (the?) ablest democratic paper in the state. As a clever man, an d a man of

 (strict?) integrity, the Whigs also (were?) as much pleased with his

 appointment that could have been (made?). Although he has given us s ome

 (hard?) raps for what he was (pleased?) to call our "rabid whiggery, " (?t) we

 are willing to render justice to a political opponent. (5,7,15) 1853 -1858:

 While in the east, he was appointed Receiver of the Land Office at P almyra,

 MO. (5) While in office, experienced the great land rush of 1855.

(5) 1858, 12 Jun: At a mass meeting of Democrats held in Palmyra, MO , it

 became apparent that there was a strong difference of opinion by a f ew

 Jos. P. AMENT immediately made a motion to adjourn. When this faile d he

 offered a resolution calling for endorsement of President BUCHANAN' s policy,

 especially with respect to the Kansas question, and confidence in the

 meeting and resignation of vestrymen. The whole trouble is that th e expenses
