Descendants of Jordan Anderson

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  Jordan6 Anderson  (James5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Richard1)1,2 was born May 05, 1723 in "Arnols", Surry County, Virginia3, and died October 20, 1805 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  He married Mary Watkins September 15, 1748 in Amelia County, Virginia3, daughter of Edward Watkins and ?.  She was born March 22, 1724/25 in Henrico County, Virginia3, and died November 13, 1805 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

 

Notes for Jordan Anderson:

        The book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families". By Grant James Anderson, (Richmond Va., Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909), provides an account of the descendants of Jordan Anderson as reconstructed from the ancestral correspondence and recall of Grant J. Anderson who was a great grandson of Jordan Anderson.  At the time of publication Grant J. Anderson was a resident of Westminster, Texas, just north of Dallas, Texas.  In his text G. J. Anderson refers to Jordan Anderson using the spelling Jourdan Anderson.  This reflects the Virginia pronounciation of Jordan (Jur-dan).  Virginia records however record the name as Jordan.

        Jordan Anderson was likely born on his father's estate "Arnols" in the West corner of Surry County, Virginia, north of the Blackwater River.  He kept a register of he births of his family which Grant Anderson apparently had in his possession in 1909 at the time he published his book and his birth date came from this source.

        It would appear that he had three primary residences in his life.  James, his father leased to him in 1743, then later in 1751 willed 200 acres at the southwest intersection of Whetstone Creek and Little Nottoway River to Jordan Anderson.

 

James Anderson  to    Jordan Anderson

12/20/1743     300 acres

Amelia County Book 2 page 19 (old number)

        Lands on South [west] side of Little Nottoway river beginning at a spring branch on Whetstone Creek, up the branch to then south along Thomas Anderson's line to a line of trees northwest to the head line and then north and then east to Whetstone Creek and down the creek to the beginning.

 

        Jordan began early to speculate on lands.  In one land "deal" in 1744 he bought 800 acres along the Little Nottoway River from Edward Thweatt and sold it back to him for half as much the following year.  Too many deals like that and anyone will go broke.  However, it would appear that his skill improved immeasurably as he dies a wealthy planter. 

        He acquires his brother John's 200 acres adjacent his in 1754 and 1755 and then he and his brother John sell their lands along Whetstone Creek to Francis Eppes in 1764. John apparently served as his overseer from 1754 to 1764. Although he kept his land in Amelia County, Jordan Anderson, after his marriage to Mary Watkins settled in Cumberland County near his Watkins kin. He described himself in 1754 as of Cumberland County. In the 1759 tax roll  Jordan Anderson is listed next to his brother-in-law, John Watkins, and to his wife's uncle, Thomas Watkins of Swift Creek. Jordan would witness Thomas's will in 1760.

        In 1762 he bought from Peter Randolph 200 acres "on the run of Middle Creek," a stream now known as Goode's Creek, which raises near the Skinquarter Church and flows south-westerly to the Appomattox River in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  A few years later, in 1768, they bought their final home, 200 areas in the area of southwest Chesterfield county now called "Clover Hill." 

        There is a flury of land transactions in the 1780's by Jordan and his sons.  He was involved in land transactions along the Appomatox River and throughout Cumberland, Prince Edward, Lunenburg and Charlotte Counties.  Jordan Anderson apparently dabbled in land speculation using his sons to "occupy" the land. He apparently acted as banker for his son's land deals as well.  I have found several occasions where a son has sold back to his father Jordan,Sr. a piece of land only to have that piece resold by the father to another son.

        From a study of his property it would appear that he had most of his money in land at the time of the revolution and the inflation that occurred at that time.  This may have been the key to his success.  His lands were located just west of the coal pits at Winterpock, which was the farthest west the the militia were driven during any of the Virginia Military Operations south of the James.  Therefore his properties avoided any of the damage sustained by those further east of him.

        Jordan's land dealings were extensive and would require an examination of almost all county records of Virginia and perhaps Georgia and the Carolina's.  His will refers to a purchase made of Patrick Henry by his son David and wills his lands in Kentucky to his son Thomas.

 

"Virginia Gazette and General Advertiser", Williamsburg, 1768.

        Run away from the subscriber in Chesterfield, about the end of August last, a middle sized Negro man named WILL, about 30 years old, of a yellowish complexion, very much marked on his face, arms, and breast, his country fashion, speaks very broken, and can hardly tell his master's name; had on when he went away a new osnabrugs shirt; Virginia linen short Trousers, old cotton jacket, and felt hat, with part of the brim burnt off.  He has made three attempts, as he said, to get to his country, but was apprehended.  All masters of vessels are hereby forewarned from carrying the said slave out of the colony.  Whoever apprehends him, and brings him to me,  shall have 20 s. reward, besides what the law allows.

                                        Jordan Anderson

 

        Jordan Anderson became opposed to the perpetuation of slavery as is confirmed by the details of his will and the following entry in Chesterfield Deed Book 11 page 639.

 

Know all men by these presents that I Jordan Anderson of the County of Chesterfield, seeing such an inconsistency betwixt our Declaration of Independence Viz. That all men are equally born free and our practice in holding a great number of our fellow men in the most abject slavery especially those born since that Declaration and also seeing our youths supported thereby, instead of becoming useful members of Society in our Commonwealth are rather become a mere nuisance and scandal thereto: observing these things I do hereby gradually emancipate and set free the following persons Viz. York, Lucy, Rachel, and her increase, Tamy, Jack, George, Felice and her increase the first day of January after my wife's and my death.  Amica, Miley, & Amy and their increase as they come to age, unless that period arrives before our deaths then they shall be free at the same time the others above mentioned after our deaths.  Frank and Little York to be free at the same time if of the age of twenty one years.  Frank was born April 25th 1773. Amica September 24,1774.  Milley March 12, 1777. Amy November 14,1779. Little York October 23,1782. Moses July 25,1787. Salley September 8th,1789. The two last to be free at 21 years of age.  In witness whereof I do hereby relinquish all claim, title, or interest in them for that my heirs or assigns shall ever have any right, or title, or claim to or in them after the above stated period for my Heirs and Assigns forever for the due Comformance of which I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my Seal this seventh day of April one thousand seven hundred and ninety.

        At a court held for Chesterfield County April 8th 1790 This Instrument of writing was acknowledged by Jordan Anderson a party thereto and ordered to be recorded.

        Teste Thos Watkins C.C.C.

 

        He dies in Chesterfield County.  The exact date of death is known through the obituary of the Virginia Gazette and General Advertizer 9 November 1805.  Jordan,Sr. and his wife of 57 years, died in Chesterfield Co., Va.  His obituary refers to him as Dr. Jordan Anderson and mentions that although he had received no formal schooling he was trusted for his healing skills. Several of his sons were apparently also "doctors".

        Jordan Anderson's will is dated 01/01/1805 and probated 12/09/1805.  It is filed in Chesterfield Will Book 6 page 264.  It is interesting for the detailed account of the portion of his estate to go to each of the Chesterfield sons and for the fact that he willed each of his slaves to be freed upon reaching the age of 21.

 

Chesterfield County, Will Book 6, Page 264

In the name of God Amen, January 1st 1805. I Jordan Anderson, senior of Chesterfield county being by the course of nature near my dissolation, but in my reason and senses do make and declare this my last will and testament, and do make all my other former wills void.  First and principally I give my soul to God who gave it, trusting only in the merits of Jesus Christ for my salvation, who hath redeemed me from destruction and brought me again unto a lively hope of the resurrection of the dead to live under his smiles to all eternity.  Glory be to God for the gift of his dear Son and for his unspeakable love and unmerited favour and as touching such worldly estate as God has trusted me with I give and bequeath as follows.

Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Edward Anderson and his heirs forever, five hundred dollars.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Charles Anderson and his heirs forever, one hundred and seventy six acres of land in Prince Edward County that I bought of my son David Anderson, a part of the land he the said David bought of Patrick Henry, which he has given me a bond of one thousand dollars to make a good and lawful title to any person as I shall direct by will or otherwise, but if my son Charles shall chosse to have the one thousand dollars in stead of the land, my son David shall pay the said sum of money to Charles and keep the land aforesaid, also I give Charles  one bed & furniture.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son John Anderson and his heirs forever, one stud horse named Juniper now in his possession.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son James Anderson and his heirs forever, all the tools I lent to him in Lunenburg County, I also give to his children and their heirs forever, all the stock and all the other property lent to him at the same time and place now in his possession, and also give them and their heirs forever, two hundred and fifty pounds, the sum I leave in my sons Jordan's hands to be paid by him to the said children as they shall come to age or marry, and have a right to give a lawfull discharge, I give unto them also one bed and furniture to be deposited in their mothers hands for them.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son David Anderson and heirs [sic] forever, four hundred dollars and one bed and furniture.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Jordan Anderson and his heirs forever, that tract of land he now lives on, one hundred and fifty acres, and after the death of my beloved wife (his mother) the tract of land I now live on, two hundred and fifty acres, on his paying his brother James' children their legacies above, but if my son Jordan shall fail to pay the money as above directed the said two hundred and fifty acres of land shall be sold to pay the same money given those children.  Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Thomas Anderson and his heirs forever, all my right and title to all lands I have any right and title to in Kentucky, also the land I had of Captn Hezekiah Rudd, according to my bargain with said Rudd: as that now he stands in my place essentially as his own bargain.  I also give him two hundred two hundred dollars.

Item, I give and bequeath unto my son Nathan Anderson and to his heirs forever five hundred dollars, deducting the money and interest he owed me on two bonds, and also for seven hundred and fifty two pounds of pork in the year 1791, to be paid for at forty shillings per hundred havin had it thirteen years to this date. I also give him the the labour and raising of my young negroes, namely Annicas increase, and Tom, and Patt, and Peter, Fillis's children and her future increase, not to be moved out of the state or so far as to deprive them of their freedom.  It is further my will and desire that my son Thomas shall have all the labour and the raising my yound negroes namely Amey's and MIlley's increase and Sall, till come to age of twenty one years but not to move them out this state, or so far as to prevent their freedom, but Matt is excepted now with Charles.  It is further my and desire that my son Jordan shall have the labour of and the raising of all Rachel's increase, but not to move them out of this state or so far as to prevent their freedom.  It is further my will that my son Jordan shall account for the pork I lent him five hundred and fifty five pounds, and pay off his bond to me of Ten pounds on interest, in short, that all my children shall pay to my estate all the debts any of them may owe to it.  as there are two young negroes with Charles and two with James, they, and all the others to be free at Twenty one years old.  Item, is is further my will and desire that after my death all my estate that can conveniently be spared of wasting property shall be sold, and the money applyed in discharging the money legacies with the last crop if any to be spared in proportion to each, also all the money in hand or to be collected then due to my estate: excepting one thousand dollars which I devise and give as follows, that is to say, I give the interest of one thousand dollars for ten years from this date to be applyed for the spreading of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, if it shall be wanting for that purpose, but if it is not wanting for that purpose, then it shall be applied to the relief of the most indigent and distressed pious, Methodist saint: and after that term of years, then the principal one thousand dollars shall be equally divided among all my sons and their heirs forever: it is to be observed, I mean by the money legacies that I have given to my sons Edward and David, and Thomas and Nathan and that James's children are to come in for a part of the one thousand dollars instead of himself.   Item, it is my will and desire that this plantation  shall be occupied with the negroes and stocks on it, for raising money to support my beloved wife Mary Anderson and for advantage of my children after her death equally to be divided: and I leave in trust this business to my three sons Jordan, and Thomas and Nathan to see my desires fulfilled, especially see their mother duly taken care of so that she shall want for nothing that this world affords that can be got for comfort & support, and as she is incapable of judging or determining for herself, may the Lord give you to remember her exertions for your temporal interest, and give you the tendeest feelings for body and soul:  and keep a just account of the cost and expence she may be, also the profits of the estate: and I desire you shall receive a just and reasonable compensation for your troubles out of the profits.  It is my will and desire that all my negroes that shall be twenty one years old now living with me and my sons Jordan, Thomas, and Nathan shall be free on the first day of January after mine and my wife's death, and they shall be well clothed both males and females, and shall have their working tools, and bread corn for one year, and liberty to settle on 33 acres of land where my son Thomas shall choose for them, and I earnestly request that no advantage may be taken of them or suffer any to be taken of them that can conveniently be prevented, but let them have wood land as well as cleared: and it is my desire that my estate shall not be appraised: and that my loving and beloved wife shall live where she shall choose, and any one of the negroes she may choose to wait on and attend her during her life, and if any of my executors shall move away they shall then settle with the others the estate affairs.  Item, it is further my will and desire that a thousand dollars shall be put into the bank of the United States, or into the hands of my executors for the presiding elders of this district to collect the interest for the purpose above mentioned, who shall give up a just account to my executors and bishops how the same is expended, with the receipts for it: the same to be collected annually and expended.  And lastly, I do appoint Jordan Anderson, Thomas Anderson, and Nathan Anderson my sons, executors of this my last will and testament.  Witness my hand and seal the day and date above written.

Generation No. 2

 

        2.  Edward7 Anderson (Jordan6, James5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Richard1) was born June 12, 1749 in Amelia County, Virginia3, and died 1806 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  He married Susannah Oliver March 20, 1775 in Sussex County, Virginia4, daughter of William Oliver and Frances Malone.  She was born Abt. 1750 in Surry County, Virginia, and died 1817 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.

 

Notes for Edward Anderson:

        Edward Anderson is the son of Jordan Anderson and Mary Watkins of Chesterfield County, Virginia. Edward was born on 06/12/1749 in Amelia County, Virginia       . His birth was recorded in his father's register.  This register was taken to South Carolina and then on to Georgia by his brother Thomas Anderson.  The birth date is that given by Grant Anderson is his 1909 genealogy, and it is likely that he had this register available to him at the time he authored his book.  It may still survive somewhere near Dallas, Texas. He would have been born in Amelia County, Virginia, in that portion now Nottoway County, before his father's move to Cumberland County, in that portion now Powhatan County.

        Edward's wife was a daughter of William Oliver of Sussex County, Virginia.

        Edward probably served in the militia in the Revolutionary War with his brothers but as he died in 1806 he had no opportunity to file a pension claim.

        Edward Anderson buys a policy with the Virginia Assurance Association in 1793.  This describes his properties and shows that he resided near the intersection of Taylor Road and Old Saponey Road in Southwestern Chesterfield County.  His neighbor was Absalom Bailey.  Taylor Road still exists, but Old Sapponey Road is now a closed forest track.  L. L. Cashion a Chesterfield County historian resides in a home built in 1980 just south of the old intersection of Old Sapponey Road and Taylor Road.

First, my will and desire is that the plantation whereon I now live should be divided into two parts or parcels, by a line running due East from a white oak standing on Mr. Abraham Bailey's land, commonly known by the name of Flaxpond Branch, until it intersects with Mr. William Ware's line, and my will is that all that part or parcel as cut off by the said line, and lying to the South of the said line, shall be sold on a reasonable credit, the purchaser giving bond and approved secruity for payment of the same, at the discretion of my executrix and executors hereafter named, and my will and desire further is, that all that part or parcel of my land or plantation lying on the North side of the line as above directed to be run, together with all the buildings thereon, with every appurtenance thereto belonging, shall enure to the benefit and use of my loving wife Susannah Anderson, my so Edward Watkins Anderson, and my daughters who are now unmarried, for and during the natural life of my loving wife, and notwithstanding my wife should die before all my daughters are married, yet my will is, that all of my daughters, or any of them, if they remain single and unmarried, shall notwithstanding the death of their mother in their lifetime, have and enjoy the same behoof and benefit in all respects as when I was living, untill they shall marry; but on the marriage of each, or all of my daughters, then my will is, that the residence and maintenance of such daughter so marrying, from my plantation so ordered for their support and maintenance as above directed shall cease; and my will is that all the money arising from the sale of the above part or parcel of my land so ordered as above to be sold, together with all the interest which shall accrue on the principal money by reason of the same not being punctually paid, shall be equally divided betwixt my son Thomas Anderson and all my daughters now living, and the issue of such as shall be dead; and it is further my will and desire, that after the death of my loving wife, and the death or marriage of all my daughters now single, that all that tract or parcel of land lying to the North of the said line so ordered as above to be run, together with all the buildings thereon, and all the appurtenances thereto in any wise belonging, shall be given to my son Edward Watkins Anderson and his heirs forever in fee simple.  And it is further my will and desire, that the slaves hereafter given to my daughters which are now unmarried, shall remain on the plantation, to be employed in making a crop or crops, untill each shall think proper to mary; and when any of my daughters shall marry, then such daughter so marrying, shall at the tim of such marriage receive an equal part of the value and it is further my will and desire that my son Thomas Anderson and my daughter Lucy Maxey shall not take any part at all out of the proceeds or issues of the crop or crops as made on my plantation, but only my four daughters who are now unmarried. I do also give and bequeath unto my loving wife Susannah Anderson the use of three negroes, Viz. Ned Beck and Nan, one riding chair, one horse and woman's sadle one bed and furniture, and one half of the house hold and kitchen furniture, (beds accepted) to have and to hold all the above recited property, to heruse only during her natural life or widowhood, but if she marries again, then and in that case, she shall be devested not only of the property heretofore given to her for her use, but also of the management of my estate as executrix.

        I give and bequeath to my son Thomas Anderson the sum of five hundred dollars, also one negro boy, one bed and furniture, one horse, saddle and knee buckles, to be deliverd to him when he comes to the age of twenty one years.

        I also give and bequeath to my son Edward Watkins Anderson, that part or parcel of my land as before mentioned, to him and his heirs forever, in fee simple, when the contingencies as above mentioned shall happen; also one silver watch which I used to ear, also one negro boy, one bed and furniture, one horse, saddle, and bridle, one cow and calf, one ewe and lamb, the personla property to be delivered to him when he is twenty one years of age, but if my son Edward Watkins should die before he arrives to the age of twenty one years, then my will is, that my son Thomas should have the land, under the same conditions as my son Edward Watkins holds it, and the personla estate bequeathed by me to him, shall be equally divided amongst all my children then living, and the issue of such as are dead; and it is also my will that if my son Thomas should die before he arrives at the age of twenty one years, then all the personal estate bequeathed to him, shall be equally divided amongst all my children then liviing and the issue of such as are dead.

        I also give and bequeath to each of my five daughters, Viz. Nancy, Lucy, Sarah, Elizabeth, and Rebecca Melone, and to the issue of such as are dead, the sum of Five hundred dollars, that is, if any of my daughters should die, leaving issue, and before such daughter shall have recieved her legacy, then my intention is, that such issue shall recieve their mother's legacy.  It is also my will and intention that the several sums which shall be found debited against each of my daughters in my prviate book of accounts, shall be deducted out of their repestive legacies of five hunderd dollars. I alos give and bequeath to my daughter Nancy one negro girl named Winney. I alos give and bequeath to my daughter Sarah one negro girl named Daphney. I also give and bequeath to my daughter Lucy one negro girl which she has already in possession. I also give and bequeath to my daughter Elizabeth and Rebeca Melone each a negro boy or girl, as may be bought most convenient, but to have respect to the value, so that none recieve a more valuable portion than the other, my intention being, to give all my daughters as valuable a part to each one as I possibly can, to make one equal with another, it is further my will and intention that each of my daughters shaell recieve her respective legacy as they shall severally marry, or come to the age of twenty one years. I also give to each of my daughters who are now unmarried one bed and furniture, to each one cow and calf, one ewe and lamb, one horse, and saddle, and bridle. I also give to my daughter Lucy Maxey one bed and furniture, one cow and calf, one ewe and lamb, one horse, saddle and bridle, which she has already in possession. which personnal estate before mentioned to be given to my daughters, I give it and its increase, to them and their heirs forever, and it is my will and intent, that each of my daughters should recieve all their above respective legacies when they arrive to the ae of twenty one years, or marry, which ever circumstance should happen first, but if one or more of my daughters should die before they come of age them my will is, if such decedent has left no issue, nor been married, then her or their part is to go to and be divided equally amongst all my daughters which do survive and the issue of such as shall be dead.

        It is also my will and desire that my wife and children which are unmarried and living with their mother on the plantation, shall be supported with a sufficiency of grain and stock of meat as will serve them untill the following years crop shall be fit for use. It is also my will and intention, that if my wife Susannah Anderson, will not abide by the provision made for her in the written will, but will take her third part of my estate according to law, she is then to have no management of my estate. Also, what I mean by having respect to the value of the negro given to each of my children in my will, is also to have respect to the age of my children, that is, the eldest is to have on eof the most value, the youngest is to have one of less value, according to their age, my daughters Lucy Maxey has hers already in possession, by the name of Doll; It is further my will and desire, that all the rest and residue of my estate, not heretofore given away is to be kept on my plantation, to make and finish the crop, until the month of November next ensuing my decease and then each of my {?possibly a page or phrase missing} personal estate to hold it and its increase to them and their heirs forever.

Notes for Oliver Anderson:

       Oliver Anderson is named as the oldest child in the book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; by Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909.  However I have found no record of him in Virginia or points west. As he is not mentioned in the will, It is likley that he died young but keep an open mind that we might find him yet.

       Sarah Anderson is identified as having married Mr. Hughes in the book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; by Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909.

From her father's will " I also give and bequeath to my daughter Sarah one negro girl named Daphney." She married after the death of her father, but no clue has been found as to where she and her husband went to.

        3.  Charles7 Anderson (Jordan6, James5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Richard1) was born October 28, 1750 in Amelia County, Virginia10, and died 1836 in Charlotte County, Virginia.  He married Ann Allen October 20, 1789 in Cumberland County, Virginia11, daughter of Daniel Allen.  She was born Bet. 1760 - 1765 in Cumberland County, Virginia, and died Aft. August 1838 in Charlotte County, Virginia.

 

Notes for Charles Anderson:

        Charles Anderson's date of birth is reported in the book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; By Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909, which added that he "married Ann Allen." This date is from the register of his father that was taken to Georgia by his brother and was used by Grant Anderson to prepare the book.  It may still survive somewhere in Texas.

        In Oct 1789 "Charles Anderson of Lunenburg Co." made bond in Cumberland Co. for his marriage to Anna Allen, daughter of Daniel Allen."  He was then almost 40 years old; the bride was at least ten years younger, according to census records.

        Several men named "Charles Anderson" served in Virginia Line Regiments in the American Revolution. He may have been the "Sergeant Charles Anderson" in Prince Edward Co. militia in 1781. In 1805, his father bequeathed him land in Prince Edward Co. In 1817, "Charles and Ann Anderson of Charlotte Co." sold that land.

        Charles Anderson appears in the 1820 and 1830 censuses of Charlotte Co., were he made his will 10 May 1830, adding a codicil 30 June 1836. He left an estate including 22 slaves, apparently not sharing his fathers's view on the slave condition. His widow "Anna" shared in that estate. Her date of death is not known, but it was after Charles's.

        5.  John7 Anderson (Jordan6, James5, Thomas4, Thomas3, Thomas2, Richard1) was born March 18, 1753 in Amelia County, Virginia12, and died in ?Spencer, Kentucky.  He married Mary Ferguson12 Bef. 1780, daughter of Peleg Ferguson and Faith Anderson.  She was born Abt. 1755 in Amelia County, Virginia, and died Bef. 1818.

 

Notes for John Anderson:

        John Anderson was born on 03/18/1753 the son of Jordan Anderson and Mary Watkins. His birth was recorded in his father's register.  This register was taken to South Carolina and then on to Georgia by his brother Thomas Anderson.  The birth date is that given by Grant Anderson is his 1909 genealogy, and it is likely that he had this register available to him at the time he authored his book. "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; By Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909. The register may still survive somewhere near Dallas, Texas.  John would have been born in Amelia County, Virginia, in that portion now Nottway County, before his father's move to Cumberland County, in that portion now Powhatan County.

        John dies before the period when applications for Revolutionary War Pensions were opened and thus did not have an opportunity to apply. John's brother "Doctor" Anderson served in that 5th Virginia regiment. The is a John Anderson an officer in that regiment but it cannot be confirmed to be this man. He lived in Prince Edward Co., receiving some land there from his parents. In 1805, he was bequeathed "one stud horse named Juniper" by his father.

        He apparently marries his first cousin Mary Ferguson daughter of Peleg Ferguson and Faith Anderson.  Mary is the dower signature in his deeds and the book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; by Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909, reports that John married Miss Ferguson. No record of this marriage has been found.  All Nottoway Parish church records have been lost.  John Anderson's aunt Faith was married to Peleg Ferguson whose will names his daughter Mary Anderson. Examination of the Anderson's of Amelia and family members leaves no other candidate Anderson other than John as the husband of Mary Ferguson. The date of the marriage is unknown, but a child, Faith, was born before 1782.

        John Anderson is lost after the 1810 census of Prince Edward.   His last deed in Prince Edward is dated 11/14/1818 selling 200 acres to William Fowlkes .  I have not had an opportunity to study the county court orders to determine if his estate was settled by court order. There was no will for a John Anderson in Prince Edward County on file.  I therefore cannot be sure that he died there.  Possibly he left the state with some of his children. The LDS ancestral file contains a page on this family that says he died in Spencer Co., KY.

        John's son Jordan Anderson,Jr. went to Tennessee.  In Old Deed Book 8 of Nottoway County, Virginia there is entered on 10/01/1829 a power of attorney and transfer of claim to Timothy Mooring from Jordan Anderson and Rebecca B. Anderson nee Hamlett of Carroll County, Tennessee. They are transfering portion of an estate willed to Rebecca by Mary Oliver.

        John's son William Anderson married in Chesterfield County to Avis Rudd. There is a large Rudd family of Chesterfield.  He later moves to Buncombe County, North Carolina.

        According to Grant J. Anderson (1909) the daughters Lydia and Faithy live to be old maids offering to leave their substantial estate to any member of the family who would live with them.  He does not state where they resided.

Brown October 04, 1785 in Charlotte County, Virginia13, daughter of Russell Brown and Elizabeth ?.  She was born Abt. 1760 in Virginia.

 

Notes for James Anderson:

        James Anderson was born on 11/03/1754.  His birth was recorded in his father's register.  This register was taken to South Carolina and then on to Georgia by his brother Thomas Anderson.  The birth date is that given by Grant Anderson is his 1909 genealogy, "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; By Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter & Shepperson printers, 1909; and it is likely that he had this register available to him at the time he authored his book.  It may still survive somewhere near Dallas, Texas.  He would have been born in Cumberland County, in that portion now Powhatan County.

        His father was Jordan Anderson, who later settled in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  He apparently incurred the disfavor of his father whose 1806 will excludes him from monetary benefits legated to his children, giving him only the tools his father lent him in Lunenburg County, Virginia.  His mother was Mary Watkins. His wife Susan Brown was the daughter of Russell Brown.  He appears as a resident of Cumberland, and Lunenburg County.  I have not worked out the exact location of any lands and therefore cannot be sure that he moved much at all as the County boundaries were under some adjustment at his time.

        There are records of American Revolutionary War service by a "James Anderson of Lunenburg Co."   The deed to his brother Jordan implies that he departs from Lunenburg County to go South (Georgia?) in 1785. His son Richard is imporperly identified in the book however. His death in 1817 in Jefferson County, GA was reported to me by a decendent.

        Jordan Anderson was a Revolutionary war pensioner.  File number S.6504

        09/10/1832 Chesterfield County, Virginia.  Jordan Anderson of said County, aged about 73 in December next (according to father's family register)  declares he enlisted in 1777 with Lieut. Balor for three years or during the war and was in Col. Balor's regiment of cavalry in Capt Cadwalder Jones' company.  Maj. Clough was in Command in the regiment. Dr. George Evans, lat of Chesterfield County, was surgeon.  They marched from Chesterfield County through Hanover and Henrico Counties to Fredericksburg, Georgetown, Md., and Lankester, Penn., and he was innoculated with the small pox in Pennsylvannia.  after recovering they marched toward Philadelphia but the enemy having gotten possession of the city, they turned their course through Princeton to Trent-town.  he was then examined by Dr. George Evans and from inability to perform duty was discharged.  He has received a land warrant for this service.

        He was drafted in the militia in October 1780 and marched through Petersburg, Virginia, to Hillsborough, North Carolina, then to Salisbury and to Cheraw Hills on Pee Dee River where they remained some time.  They marched to Cowpens to assist in carrying some prisoners taken there to Albemarle Barrux, but the march of the detachment was so rapid that they did not overtake them.  The British army came near at Island Ford on Yadkin River and they then marched to Guilford where they were discharged, having served five months.

        He marched under Lieut. Robert Wooldridge to Williamsburg and was placed in Capt. Collier's company.  He served one month.

06/10/1831     Chesterfield County, Virginia

        David Anderson of Prince Edward County., Virginia, declares that Jordan Anderson who now resides in Chesterfield County enlisted in Continental Service in 1777 for three years in the regiment of Col. Balor of the cavalry and continued until discharged.

08/11/1832     Chesterfield County, Virginia

        Nathan Anderson of said County declares Jordan Anderson served 10 or 11 months in the Continental Army and also a tour of duty in the South in the militia

02/05/1833     Chesterfield County, Virginia

        Jordan Anderson declares he served twelve months as a private in a company of cavalry and six months in the militia as a private.

        Jordan Anderson of Chesterfield County, Virginia, private of cavalry and infantry in company of Capt. Baylor in Continental and Virginia Line for 18 months, was placed on the Virginia pension roll at $70 per annum under the Act of 1832. Certificate 12976 was issued 06/21/1833.

 

        Jordan Anderson was an owner of some of the lands making up the Clover Hill Coal Pits.  His will discusses the handling of the coal rights to his property.  These Coal Pits were the primary source of Coal for the southern war effort in the Civil War.  Jordan and his two sons had died prior to the Civil War but the estate had not been probated at the time of the war.  It was subsequently probated by a son-on-law in the 1870's.  Whether the coal rights to Jordan's abandoned lands were respected during the war would be an  interesting study, although I think it's too late to file claims against the Confederate States of America.

        An obituary in the Richmond Enquirer on 10 May 1850, announced: "Another Revolutionary Soldier gone, Jordan Anderson, on 28 day of March 1850 at Clover Hill in Chesterfield Co., Methodist."

Dear Pat,

 

I saw your posting on the GenForum.  I have been actively researching Shands families for about 25 years.  I wonder if you have any information concerning the descendants of Thomas and Frances Anderson.  I will be glad to expend some effort on these descendants if there are valuable leads to be had.  I will also gladly furnish information on the ancestry of Frances.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jack Shands

To: PatAnder73

 

Dear Pat,

 

Thanks much for the reply.

 

Frances' parents were William Shands and Lucy Oliver (dau. of William Oliver).  William Shands' parents were William Shands and Priscilla Moss.  William Shands' parents were William Shands and Nazareth Roberts (dau of John Robbards/Roberts).

 

Thanks for the tip.  Since the land & etc. subject to the agreement between Frances and Jordan Anderson was situated in Sussex Co., I will look for a subsequent marriage in either Sussex, Greensville, or Chesterfield Counties.

 

Thagain,

 

Jack Shands

 

+      51             iii.    Matthew Anderson, born 1790 in Chesterfield County, Virginia; died April 27, 1835 in Nottoway County, Virginia.

        52             iv.    Elizabeth L. Anderson30, born Abt. 1794 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.  She married (1) ? Tucker.  She married (2) ? Blankenship.

 

Notes for Elizabeth L. Anderson:

       Betsey Anderson was the daughter of Jordan Anderson and Margaret Easter.  She may have married (1) William P. Blankenship on 05/21/1847 recorded at Chesterfield County, Virginia by James D. Rowlett. According to the text of Grant Anderson's book she married (2) to an Unknown Tucker.  However the marriage date is a bit late so I am suspicious of it.

        Thomas Anderson is listed in the DAR's Patriots Index as a private of Virginia.

        10/23/1832, Abbeville District, South Carolina.  Thomas Anderson of said District, aged 70 on April 1 last, declares that it was proposed in 1779 or 1780 by Col. Robert Goode that a sufficient number of young men should volunteer to fill the places of those who had families and would other wise be compelled to seve as militia men.  On the day he volunteered Col. Robert Goode presented to them a foreigner who he said "would lead them on to butcher our enemies."  He lived in Chesterfield County, Virignia, and they marched through Petersburg, Prince George County, and down to Surry County to Cabin Point.

        He was called out another time and met at Osburn's on the James River.  He was commanded by Col. Robert Goode.  They marched the same route as before but went on to Nanesemond County.

        He was again called out when the British entered Richmond and burned the rope works.  They met at Manchester and he served until after the battle of Petersburg in which he participated.  He was called out to attack the enemy in their boats while ascending the Appomattox River.  One officer was called Marcham.  They then returned to Chesterfield Court House and made the court house a hospital for the wounded.  They then marched to Fallin Creek Church.  There they had an alarm that the enemy were in pursuit and formed a line of battle, but the British come only to Chesterfield Court House and burned it down.  The Americans then marched back to the James River, crossed silently in the night, and went to Richmond where they joined a considerable number of troops.  They marched down a large swamp.  Creed Haskins, his Captain here, had a servant and two fine horses.  One of these the pressmaster attempted to take.  The Captain ran into Anderson's tent and took one of the guns to prevent the pressmaster's taking his horse.

        While encamped at Sudbury's in Chesterfield County he was taken prisoner by Tarleton's Light Horse.  He was taken to Petersburg, then to Col. Byrd's and then to Portsmouth where they were kept prisoners until the evening of the night on which the enemy`s troops vacated the town and went to Little York where Cornwallis was taken prisoner.

        10/30/1833  Thomas Anderson declares he has a written record of his age in a family book in his father's handwriting.

        Thomas Anderson of Abbeville District, South Carolina, private in the Company of Capt. Haskins in the regiment of Col. Goode in Virginia troops for six months, was placed on the South Carolina pension roll at $20 per annum under the Act of 1832.  Certificate 23220 was issued 12/07/1833.

Notes for Maryanna Mayo:

        A caution to other researchers that there are two marriage bonds in the originals of the Chesterfield Courthouse. One for Nathaniel Anderson and Mary Mayo and another for Nathan Anderson and Marianna Mayo, the bonds separated by a few years.  Unfortunately this means that every company that transcribes these bonds combines the two bonds into one entry not recognizing that these are two different couples.  Mary and Marianna are couisins not siblings.

        The Marianna that married Nathan Anderson descends as follows:

 

                                William Mayo (?-1702)

                        Joseph Mayo (1656-1691)

                        |       Joanne (    -1685)

                William Mayo (1684-1744) "Astrolabe"

                |       Elizabeth Hooper

        John Mayo (1736-1786)

        |       Anne Perratt

Marianna Mayo (1764-1849)

        |                               Humphrie Tabb

        |                       Thomas Tabb

        |                       |       Joanne 

        |               John Tabb

        |               |       Martha 

        |       William Tabb (1702-

        |       |       |       Richard Hand

        |       |       Martha Hand

        |       |               Frances Purifoy

        Mary Tabb

 

        Mariann was disinherited by her father for marrying into a Methodist family. Marianna Mayo's portrait in oil done by John Durand is in the hands of the Cate family of Nashville, Tennessee.

                JOHN MAXEY, JR.  (1771-1834)

        John Maxey, Jr., a son of John and Mary Ann (Forsee) Maxey,

was born 21 January 1771, Cumberland Co., VA.  He first appeared

on the personal property tax records of Powhatan Co., VA., with

his father in 1787 as "1 male between 16-21."  The next year he

was designated by name and in 1792 the "over 16" was dropped.

        On 5 November 1801 he married Lucy Anderson (born 25 July

1781), daughter of Edward Anderson of Chesterfield Co., Va.

        John, Jr., was the son who was to settle permanently in the

area, and soon after his marriage his father made him a gift of

100 acres in Powhatan County on 1 June 1802.  Shortly before his

death, John, Sr., along with his son Bennett, sold to John, Jr.,

446 acres (242 acres from John, Sr., and 204 acres from Bennett,

according to the tax records) by deed dated 26 September 1803.

As per instruction in the will of John Maxey, Sr., his son William

was to make a gift to his brother John of the 50 acres his

father had given him some years before, and this was done on 10

April 1804.  Brother Elisha then sold to John on 6 November 1811,

34 1/4 acres on the waters of Jones Creek.  Other records show

that he added 185 acres to his holdings in 1824, another 25 acres

in 1831 and 91 3/4 acres in 1832.

        On 18 May 1814 William Scott and "John Maxey, Jun., Gent.,"

who had been elected to serve as overseers of the poor for the

lower district of Powhatan County, appeared in court and qualified

by taking the oath of fidelity to the Commonwealth and further

oaths to aid in the suppression of dueling and the importation

of slaves into Virginia, and lastly, an oath to support the U.S.

Constitution.

        On 15 April 1816 his wife Lucy died, perhaps due to complications

following the birth of their last daughter six weeks earlier.

        Just eight months later John married the 36-year-old widow

of Edward Cox -- Rebecca (Hooper) Cox -- on the 18th of December

in Buckingham Co., Va.  John and Rebecca had three children --

Mary Ann, Bennett and Virginia.

        John must have died quite suddenly 21 April 1834 as it was

unusual for a man who had reached the age of 63 years and was

possessed of over 800 acres of land and a family from two separate

marriages to died intestate.  As a result of this, the record

books at the Powhatan County courthouse are filled with deeds and

other instruments involving the settlement and division of John's

estate.  The 1836 tax book shows the division of his lands as follows:

Rebecca, 226 acres; Mary Ann, 90 acres; Virginia, 90 acres; Joab,

William O., Thomas E., Rowlett P. and wife (Martha A.) and William

D. Watkins and wife (Susannah E.), 348 acres.  John's son

Bennett was not included on this list, but on 12 October 1835

Joab Maxey and Benjamin B. Hughes, commissioners appointed by

decree of the Circuit Court on 7 September in a suit between

Rebecca Maxey (plaintiff), widow of John Maxey, Jr., and Joab and

Thomas E. Maxey, administrators of John Maxey, Jr., (defendants),

sold to John Sledd for $270, 90 acres bounded by the lands of

S.Browning, Mary Ann Maxey, and Virginia Maxey, the same land

which had been allotted to Bennett as his share of his father's

real estate.  Why this land had to be sold is not clear.

        On 10 August 1837 William O. Maxey and Susan B. his wife,

Rowlett P. Maxey and Martha A. his wife, and William D watkins

and Susannah E. his wife, all of the town of Upper Alton, Madison Co.,

Ill., sold to Thomas E. Maxey of the same place for $900, 348 acres

on the waters of Matthews of Big Branch in Powhatan Co.

Va., it being the portion assigned to the five legatees of age of

John Maxey.  Rebecca Maxey, widow of John, had conveyed her

right to this portion of the land.  Joab and Mary Maxey of Fayette

Co., Tenn., then sold to Bennett Maxey, for $400, their right

(one-fifth share) in the 348 acres which was allotted to Joab

and others in the division of the real estate of his father,

and also released the right to 226 acres which was allotted to

Rebecca Maxey as her dower, on 16 November 1840.  On the same

date Thomas E. and Mildred Maxey of Haywood Co., Tenn., sold to

Bennett Maxey, for $900, their right to the 348 acres in Powhatan

County which had been the land allocated to Thomas, Joab and William

Maxey, Martha Maxey and her husband Rowlett, and Susan B. (Maxey)

Watkins and her husband William in the division of their

father's real estate.  On 25 June 1847 William O. Maxey of Bond

Co., IL., and his wife Susan, sold to Bennett Maxey for $200 all

their interest in their one-eighth share in the property of John

Maxey, Jr., and the dower lands of Rebecca Maxey.  Finally, on

25 November 1847 Bennett and his wife Martha sold to Mary A. Maxey

and Virginia Maxey for $1,500 a parcel of land then occupied

by Bennett containing 348 acres -- a portion of the land John

Maxey, Jr., had owned at his death -- and also their interest in

the dower lands held by John's widow, Rebecca.

        Therefore, it took almost 14 years from the time John died

until his estate was finally settled.

        Rebecca was apparently anxious not to repeat the problems

incurred by the lack of instruction as to the disposition of her

property, and on 31 December 1850 she sold for $200 her interest

in her Negroes and other personal property to her children Bennett,

Mary Ann Ligon (and her husband Thomas H.) and Virginia

Maxey.  Then, on 6 July 1855, Rebecca made a deed of gift of a

Negro woman and her child to Mary Ann and her children, to be held

in trust by Abner Watkins.  Also for Mary Ann, by then 38

years of age, Rebecca deeded personal property in 1856 to be held

in trust by Bennett.  And lastly, in her will dated 7 February 1857 and

proved 2 March 1863, Rebecca left the services of a Negro

woman and child (as already deeded above) to Mary A.R. Ligon

for her lifetime and then to her children.  If these children died

before the age of 21, then the servants were to go to Rebecca's

other daughter, Virginia McGruder.  However, by the time her

will was probated Abraham Lincoln had emancipated the slaves.

Bibb54,55 September 08, 1825 in Green County, Kentucky.  She was born May 11, 1809, and died Aft. 1870 in McCraken County, Kentucky.

 

Notes for Thomas Anderson:

        Thomas Anderson is the son of Edward Anderson and Susannah Oliver.  He would have been born in southwestern Chesterfield County just southwest of Winterpock, possibly at his fathers farm at the junction of Taylor Road and Old Sapponey Road.  There is no contemporary record of his birth.

        Grant J. Anderson's 1909 Anderson Genealogy states that he married a Brock.  The dower dignature in his deeds is Martha Jones Anderson.  There is a marriage record in Brunswick County, Virginia for Thomas Anderson and Martha Jones Brock.

        He was sold land by his uncle Thomas and he inherits some of his fathers lands from his mother Sussannah and purchases additional lands.  After these acquisitions he owned the estate known later as Mantua. 

        This home is documented in The Virginia Historical Homes Survey.  It is located on a flat ridge about a mile west of Winterpock, Virginia.  It was built in three stages. The original dwelling forming the center of the structure was built in the mid eighteenth century. The north wing was added in the late eighteenth century. The south wing addition was made by Richard Noble Thweatt in 1823. After his father directed the gradual manusmission of his slaves in his 1806 will it pobably became more and more difficult to continue to operate what was a large plantation in Chesterfield, County.  After the sale of the home to Richard Thweatt in 1820, by combination with other lands of his it was the manor house of the largest plantation in Chesterfield County. The manor house at Mantua collapsed between 1983 and 1987.  It had been rented out in the first half of the 20th century but was abandoned after 1940.  There was never any indoor plumbing.  Located between Taylor Road and Coalboro Road in Southwest Chesterfield County.  I saved a few bricks from the chimneys.

        Called Thomas,Senior in his 1816 deeds, therefore had a son Thomas.

Dear Pat,

    Thank you so much for replying to my query.   I have been out of town for a while and just got to my E Mail a couple of days ago.   I enjoyed learning about Mantua.  I'm familiar with the deeds you mentioned as well as some earlier ones which I am sure you are aware of also.  I haven't been working on this line of my family for quite a while and so had to refresh my memory.  In going back to my notes, I see that I had placed Edward as Thomas' father, but because of 1807 deed Of Thos. Sr and Elizabeth, his wife, to Thomas, son of Edward, I had placed Thomas Sr. as a brother to Edward and Uncle to Thomas (Jr.) who md. Martha (Patsy) Brock.

    My greatest interest in this family is as it applies to Patsy Brock. She is a great Aunt on my direct line.  I have gathered quite a bit of

information on her up to the point of emmigration from Chesterfield Co. and want to include her family in a project I'm working on,  but have never been able to determine the children or exactly where she and Thomas disappeared to.

[snip]

    I'll refer to the NET address you gave for information on Thomas Anderson.  Thanks again.

 

Sincerely,

 

Billie Hunt

Mr Anderson,

 

I am very interested in the information posted in ancestry.com on Sarah H.

Bibb and Thomas Anderson. My lineage comes through both sides of this

family. Sarah closer to the present. My 2ggrandmother was Mary Matilda Bibb

daughter of Philemon W. Bibb and Mary Harris. Philemon's parents John Bibb

III and Susannah Marshall had, according to my records, three children;

Philemon who married Mary Harris 17 May 1827 in Green County, KY., Susanna

who married Calvin Webb (16)? Sep 1829 in Greensburg, Green County, KY. and

Sally who i believed at one time married Isaac Newton Anderson, but after

looking at your record, my Sally may very well be Sarah H. Bibb who married

Thomas Anderson. Can you give me any help on this family?

Thanks for all you have done on this line.

 

Michael H. Ison

To:  PatAnder73

 

Hi Pat,

  I saw your Blankenship listing about William Pleasant.  I was not aware of the Pleasant connection.  Can you give me a reference for that?

    William E. son of William Pleasant and Nancy Anderson married (1) in Amelia Co. Elizabeth Watkins.  30 May 1845.

   I think the marriage of Ann Bailey in 1822 to Lawson who was born after 1813 might be incorrect.  Probably Ann married an older Lawson.  Lawson, son of William and Nancy Anderson, probably married Martha Harriet Cousins in Amelia 8 Oct 1841.

   Thomas, son of William and Nancy, is possibly the Thomas who married Cordelia Shands.

Children of Nancy Anderson and William Blankenship are:

+      94               i.    Ann Elizabeth9 Blankenship, born Abt. 1813.

+      95              ii.    William E. Blankenship, born Abt. 1815.

Hi Patrick,

 

I did send a e-mail to Eleanor Poindexter the day after you sent me the Anderson information, however she has never replied.

 

OK.. I have just found Edward Watkins Anderson in the 1850 Logan County census, he is listed as Watkins Anderson.  I also located him in the 1840 Logan Co. census listed as Edward Anderson.

 

I do not have access to the Logan County Will book at this time..

 

I was hoping Eleanor Poindexter could tell where she found the children's names for  Edward Watkins & Obedience Anderson.  The only children listed in the 1850 census are David age 17, Waverly age14, Martha age 12 & Lucy age 10.

Again, Iam truly greatful for all the info you sent on this Anderson line...

 

Best of Wishes,

I've got to catch a flight in a few minutes so I'll make this short.  Part of the info on Obedience and Edward comes from DAR lineage books, part from "The Majors and Their Marriages" and part from the Library of Virginia's newspaper and family bible collection.  "The Majors and Their Marriages" has a large section on the Patteson family which intermarried with the Anderson and Branch families more than once.  The Patteson connection is why I have them on my site, and I have more info on the Pattesons on my website (address below).  My mother's maiden name is Patteson.

 

Will follow up with more later - back in town this weekend.

Hello Pat Anderson,

    I understand you are perhaps a descendant of Devereaux Hightower (s/o Joshua & first wife Ann) & his second wife Nancy W. Anderson, d/o Charles Anderson & Ann Allen. We show 12 children for Charles & Ann as per our copy of Charles Anderson’s 1826 Will -to be included along with the will of Devereaux (1836) & Nancy (1884) in a coming HIGHTOWER QUEST issue... see our web site at:

    http://home.switchboard.com/hightowerquest

According to the 1860 Census age for Nancy and her 1884 Will, it shows that Nancy was b. 1792 and died at age 92, outliving Devereaux by 48 years.

    We show  six children for Devereaux & Susannah in his first marriage and three more in his second marriage to Nancy, but do not see where you fit into the line.  Please let us know so that we can include you in the record.  Also, do you know which volume of the Virginia Genealogical Quarterly included Devereaux’s bible pages, as we would like to get a copy of that.  

      Thanks.

      Janet & Ken Ricke

Pat:

I looked in Malcolm Basham's database on the WWW where there are many Hightower names listed, and found what appears to be your Nancy and Devereaux.  Devereaux was born about 1774 in Amelia Co. VA. and died after 1830.  His 1st wife was Susannah Hutcheson m. Aug 18, 1800 in Mecklenburg Co., VA.  His 2nd marriage was to NANCY W. ANDERSON m. abt 1821 (?) in Halifax Co., VA and there are 3 children listed for them,  Ann Allen Hightower, Charles C. Hightower, and Mary E. S. Hightower.  Source for this info was the 1820, and 1830 Halifax Co., Va. census research by Walter A. Walker.  I don't know if this is your Nancy for certain, and keep in mind, that a lot of the time, people have to make assumptions in there records because there simply is not any documentation to prove it.  Unfortunately this info leans toward the Hightower spouse and there is no further info on this Nancy.  If this is your Nancy, I hope it helps a bit,, if not, well we tried anyhow.  Later!

So sorry I have not gotten back to you sooner. I am having the hardest time trying to confirm that the A in Clifton A Hamner stands for Arichbald. The Clifton Hamner we are searching for is from Charlottesville, Va. as says in the family Bible. The birth date is  1856 and the death date says 11-11-1916 as per the bible. As the story goes, Clifton Archibald Hamner and Amelia Pulliman from Buncombe County, NC, had 1 son together, William Gordon Hamner. They were not married. Clifton was in the medical field (we were told a surgeon) as well as Amelia (a nurse) in Asheville, NC. Clifton supposedly died when William was 4 years old. William has always told the story he was a distant cousin of Earl Hamner.

He has now passed away. I do not know if Clifton Hamner had another family while seeing Amelia. We do know Amelia later married a Starr. I cannot find a birth or death record for Clifton Hamner.

If you know of anything I would appreciate the help.

Patrick, I have been typing my little fingers off down to the nub, but thought I better answer your last e-mail.  I have John and William both in Madison Co, NC.  They are both on the 1850 census, living next door to one another.  Jordan is living with William along with Elizabeth, Matilda, William, John, James and a M. Hall.  I haven't had a chance to get back to Marshall, since I found this to do any more research, so don't laugh.  Not near as thorough as you, but I will be...  John and Mary Davis Payne, raised all their children in and around Marshall, NC.  As soon as the snow clears, I plan to go up there and do more research.

Patrick,

 

Thank you so much for all the information you sent to me!  I am overwhelmed!!  I would LOVE to have a gedcom of my relations from you and I will of course send one to you.  I am still working on getting the information typed in.  One thing I have noticed from reading the information in the notes that you sent me....somewhere to money sure got lost!!  My Andersons, from Madison Co.  were dirt poor right up until my grandfather's generation. He left Madison Co and moved into Buncombe where he could make a better living but even then it was just the basics.  But my grandfather Walter Hilliard Anderson and his wife Mamie Ellen Buckner were both truly loving , gentle , and God fearing people, if a little gullible due to lack of education.  They were good farmers tho, something I would fail miserably at for sure!

 

We never knew ANY of our Anderson relatives except for my great uncle Oscar Anderson.  My grandfather's father,  "BILLY"  WW Anderson,  left his three children with his 1/2 brother , JAMES CODY, when his wife, MALINDA SMITH, died, probably of "childbed fever", 3 months after my grandfather was born, 1898 .  He went to DUCKTOWN , Tenn to work.  There were copper mines there and apparently some of his relatives were there working as well.   He was shot and killed in 1901 while trying to help his cousin defend himself in a domestic dispute...or at least the story goes.   He was buried in DUCKTOWN tho there is no record of it.  I have been there....it looks like the Badlands...red, bare clay, due to copper mining...a very desolate place.  I went thru every record I could find but found no trace of BILLY.

 

 I   have often wondered where the names of OSCAR and WALTER HILLIARD came from.  They seemed to have only been used for my grandfather and his brother in the Anderson family and I havent seen them in other families in Madison CO either.

 

Have you by any chance communicated with Candice from Greenville, SC.  Cant remember her last name right now but she and I are related on several lines...the Andersons and Paynes to start with.  She referred me to your site months ago but I never figured out the connection and then I FORGOT!  I cant believe it!  But I have so many names and dates and web addresses running thru my mind it gets foggy in there at times!

Thanks again!

Notes for Avis Whiticur Rudd:

        Avis Rudd was William Andersons wife.  The spelling of her first name in varied depending upon the reader.  It may be read as Evis, Enis or other combinations of that variety.  There is a large Rudd family of Chesterfield County which remains unanalyzed.

Patrick,

 My Mother was Marguerite Alberta ANDERSON.  She was the daughter of Albert Thomas ANDERSON, son of Albert Berkley ANDERSON, son of Richard Jordan ANDERSON.  I have a (lifetime) work, prepared by E. F. SMITH of Hallettsville, TX., that states Richard Jordan's birth date as ca. 1806 in Jefferson Co., Ga.  He is listed as the son of James ANDERSON and Susannah (Sukey) BROWN.  Mr. Smith lists Richard Jordan's death as 1892 with burial in Hallettsville, TX., along with his wife Ann MONTGOMERY FENNER, (a widow), who died 17 May 1889.  He lists their marriage as 15 Nov 1838, in Parrish of Saint Landry, La., performed by Isaac Griffith, J.P..  Marriage and death records can be found for these events. Richard Jordan was a school teacher and a farmer, according to my late Mother.  She said that he was the first school teacher in Hallettsville.  My Mother passed away in 1990.  I would appreciate any information you wish to share, and I have a lot more.  Patricia

"Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families"; By Grant James Anderson; Richmond Virginia; Whitter &  Shepperson printers, 1909

 

        This book documents the family of James Anderson that married Susan Brown.  It lists as their child a Richard Anderson who is credited as born 10/28/1786 according to the genealogy of Grant J. Anderson.  He is credited as having married twice and been the ancestor of a Georgia family delineated in Grant Anderson's genealogy. 

        However, in checking the credentials of this family an examination of the Revolutionary Pension file of William Anderson reveals a copy of a Bible leaflet, in which the birth of another Richard Anderson is recorded.  The marriages of that Richard are recorded in that bible and clearly indicate that the Richard Anderson who married Hulda Simmons (the one described in Grant Andersosn book) was the son of William Anderson also from Amelia County. 

        In his genealogy, Grant Anderson implies that he is not confident of the children of James.  It is likely that there were two Richard Anderson's and that subsequent generations have become confused as to their parentage.  The other Richard Anderson born of 10/28/1796 was a son of William Anderson who was a son of Richard Anderson married to Jane Foster and was descended from the King & Queen County VA Anderson family.

Pat,  Since I corresponded with you, I have visited the old cementery in Hallettsville, TX. and located Ann and her son Edward FENNER's gravesites. The graveyard  has all but been destroyed at some point. There is now a historical marker and the oldest gravestones that were salvageable are placed on concrete slabs.  Edward's gravestone is in pieces on the ground. Ann's is gone. Her 2nd Husband was Richard FENNER not FANNER.  I treasure the vast amount of information that you have shared with me, and the world, on your website. Ann and Richard Jordan ANDERSON are my ancestors.  Patricia

Hello Patrick,

 

I don't know that you'll remember me, but you answered my query about my ancestors Henry W. Anderson (July 1834 - ca. 1901), son of Garland Anderson (1802 - living on 1 Jan 1873) of Amherst County. 

 

I spent the day today in the Amherst & Prince Edward County courthouses trying to reach an end to the matter, and have conclusive evidence that my Garland Anderson is NOT the son of James Anderson & Sally Bagley as we had thought, but is the son of your David Anderson (d. 1835) of Prince Edward County:

 

Amherst Co Deed Book QQ, pg. 317 , dated 1 Jan 1873 states that (the land in question) was willed to Garland Anderson "by his father, David Anderson of Prince Edward County."  This deed shows this same tract of land being deeded by Garland Anderson to "his son, Henry W. Anderson."

 

A subsequent deed (1883) in Amherst County Deed Book TT, page 103, repeats that Henry W. Anderson received the land "from his father, Garland Anderson" and provides the reference back to Book QQ, pg. 317.  This deed is the deed of sale for the land from Henry W. Anderson to Edmund Payne.

 

Garland shows up in Amherst in the 1840 census, which makes sense, since he inherited the land in 1835.  In the 1840 Amherst VA census he lists:

1 male 30-40

1 male 20-30

1 male 5 -10

 

1 female 30-40

1 female 10-15

1 female 5-10

 

In the 1860 Amherst VA census he lists:

 

Garland, age 58, farmer, born VA

Mary P. , age 52, born VA

Henry W. (my ancestor), age 27, farm laborer, born VA

Samuel D. age 23, farm laborer, born VA

Richard H. age 45, carpenter, born VA.

 

This meshes with the marriage record of Garland Anderson and Mary Stewart (Jan 15, 1828 , Charlotte County).  It would be impossible due to their ages, for Garland, son of David Anderson, to have been the one married to Nancy Hamlett.

 

I encourage you to look up these deeds for yourself. 

 

Thanks for all your help in the past,

With best regards,

Elizabeth Middleton

Greetings,

 

Sorry I haven't responded earlier.  Just haven't been on line lately - holidays.

Thanks for sending the info - yes, I was able to read it.  Feel a little ashamed to provide what little info I have after seeing all you have done. 

 

Anyway,  don't have a lot more to provide.  Henry remarried July 16, 1838 to Mary Swann in P. Ed. County.  I do show a daughter (Martha A. Hubbard) probably b. circa 1836 to Henry and Lucretia.  Don't have any additional info re Martha at this time.  Be glad to provide additional data re Hubbard side if you would like it.

 

Tks and regards,

NOTES:

 

        Jeremiah Bailey probably is the son of Benjamin Bailey (b. ca 1755 August Co., VA; d. ca 1813, possibly in Chesterfield Co., VA) and Ann Elizabeth Watkins (b. ca 1764; d. ca 1812-1813, possibly in Chesterfield Co., VA).

        Jeremiah (b. 2 June 1784; d. 9 Apr 1925) married ca 1804 to Mary Watkins Anderson (b. 7 Mar 1786, Prince Edward Co., VA; d. 4 June 1784).  They had 5 children:

        1) Jordon Bailey (b. 15 Nov 1806; d. 31 May 1884)

        2) Benjamin Watkins Bailey (b. 12 Feb. 1814, Amelia Co., VA; d. 13 Oct. 1899, Amelia Co., VA)

        3) Elizabeth Ann Bailey (b. 5 Mar 1816; d. 8 Dec 1899)

        4) Richard Thomas Bailey (b. 15 Mar 1821; d. 21 May 1899)

        5) Mary Frances Bailey (b. 30 Sep 1825; d. 7 Mar 1918).

 

        I first learned of this cemetery from my great aunt, Virginia Butler Priddy.  She told me that there was a "family cemetery in the middle of a cornfield in Amelia" and promised to take me there one day.  Unfortunately she died before we had a chance to go.

 

        I finally found the cemetery after many trips to Amelia County, by myself and with friends, driving every road we could find, asking anyone we saw, and even stopping to knock on doors of strangers if it looked like the property might have a cemetery in the field.

 

        On 27 September 1988, during one of my trips, I got a tip from a very nice woman who worked at the Amelia County Courthouse.  She made a telephone call (while I waited) to the family re this cemetery to ask if I could come over and see if it was the one I was looking for.  When I arrived, there was a field, unmown, with a small "forest" in the distance.  This "forest" was the cemetery, overgrown with weeds, sticker bushes, etc.  The owner of the field (Shirley Easter) gave me hints on where to drive my car through the field so that I would not hit too many ruts or ditches (the field had at least 1-1/2' to 2' tall weeds, grass, etc., which made it impossible to see the ground).

 

        The cemetery was completely filled with dense growth that was over 6' tall.  It was impossible to see any of the stones, so I searched around the wall, trying to move the sticker bushes to see.  I finally found some stones leaning against the far wall (#'s 1 through 4 on the above diagram).  I could not read them, as the growth was too thick to move aside enough for my head to peek over; so I stuck my hand inside & took a picture of the front of the each of the stones.

 

        I left Amelia, came back to Richmond and had the pictures developed.  I knew I had found the right cemetery when I saw the picture of the stone for Jeremiah Bailey (#2 on the above diagram).  I returned to the cemetery on 9 October 1988, with my (now ex) husband, aunt, & uncle to clear the cemetery & determine who was buried there.  After we arrived, Thelma Mottley and her son Jim (they own the cemetery) came over & helped us in our daylong efforts to chop & clear, photograph & record.  We were all determined to make a record of this cemetery, as it is so easy for small cemeteries such as this one to become "lost" over time.  Time had already taken its toll on some of the headstones, and Thelma replaced a few of them back around 1961.

 

        There are only eight marked graves in this cemetery, 7 identified and 1 not.  There are a number of large stones on the ground inside the cemetery, which could be mistaken for field stones used to mark graves; however, according to Thelma Mottley, these stones were placed at various times to fill up or cover groundhog holes.  The stones used to fill these holes are very old as they were taken from the remains of the Meat House on the old [Benjamin Watkins] Bailey farm (that Thelma currently owns).  I placed several of these myself on the outside of the wall to fill two large holes.

 

        Copies of my original typewritten notes and photographs of the cemetery & the headstones (that I took on 9 October 1988) are on file at the Virginia Historical Society, Richmond, Virginia.

Thank you very much Pat. Sorry it took so much trouble. I REALLY appreciate it.

 

Here is what I wrote up after going to my James Anderson's home area. Not as extensive as what you have, but interesting I hope.

 

        The trip started by driving east on Georgia highway 36 from Thomaston, Georgia, toward The Rock, Georgia, which is where James Anderson, M.D. lived. The Rock is approximately 8 miles outside of Thomaston on Georgia highway 36. According to the Upson County, Georgia, Sesquicentennial booklet, The Rock was named because the stagecoaches in earlier times left mail at a rock near the village.  This booklet also mentioned that Upson County was devastated by Federal forces during the Civil War, and that all plantations and factories were destroyed.  The area around the rock seems to be basically agricultural, with rolling hills and pine trees. Driving around Thomaston, I noticed that the Morning Star Masonic Lodge, which James Anderson was a member (according to the Upson County History), is still in operation.

        A historical marker just outside the village limits of The Rock reads:

 

"First Post Office

at

The Rock

Stagecoach Route

on

Old Farrell Road

1816

Marked by

Governor Edward Telfair Chapter, D.A.R.

Thomaston, Georgia

1923"

 

        Highway 36 parallels a railroad track.  I would assume that the railroad follows the old stagecoach route. Salem Cemetery is 2.7 miles east of The Rock on Georgia highway 36.  The Cemetery is on the south side of the road, with a few trees in and around the Cemetery.  A gravel drive enters the Cemetery from the highway.  There are

slabs with inscriptions on the graves of James Anderson, M.D., Priscilla Neal (Beall) Anderson, and John Owen Anderson located approximately near the center of Salem Cemetery.  Nearby are some large trees (oaks?) and a renewed plot of the Stafford family and Colquitt family.  Also nearby are some stones  that look like where graves were in the past, as well as some that can no longer be read.  Some stones in the Cemetery are recent, from 1990, as well as many earlier.  The Cemetery seems to be well kept and still in use.

        James Anderson's slab holds the Masonic emblem, and the inscription reads: "James Anderson, M.D. was born March 3rd, 1803 and died July 14th, 1860.  In his death the godly man ceaseth, for he walked uprightly, worked righteousness, and spoke the truth in his heart.  In his eyes a vile person was contented(?) and he honored them that fear the Lord.  By his bereaved friend, O. C. Gibson"

        Priscilla N. Anderson's slab was cracked and poorly repaired, but the inscription reads (as well as I could make out): "Here rests the remains of Mrs. Priscilla N. Anderson the wife of Dr. James Anderson freed from excruciating pain.  Born 8th June 1810 and died 23rd January 1851. Benevolent woman, kind mistress, and loving(?) mother.  A devoted and lovely wife and devout Christian.  In life the kindliest emotion of the human heart pervaded her bosom.  By death she is translated to her redeemer God.  Here she enjoys pure Christian happiness and spiritual bliss."

        John Owen Anderson's inscription reads: "To the memory of John Owen Anderson, the son of James and P.N. Anderson was born 23rd July 1840 and died 12th September 1852.  An inquiring and devotional turn(?) mind he sought to learn much of intuity and deity and verified that they that seek me early shall find me. of an affectionate

beautiful and benevolent disposition the pleasure of his parents and the comfort of his friends it was his constant aim to consult.  Feign would his parents have retained him.  The will of heaven they bow and thankful of the loan of a child so sweet."

Hi Patrick,

 

Thank you for the contact. Priscilla Neal BEALL, 1st wife of Dr. James Anderson, is a sister to my 3rd g-grandmother Emeline "Emily" BEALL (b.21 Nov 1805).

 

I have a cousin via the GARDNER connection (John GARDNER was husband of Emeline BEALL... that lives in Georgia and she had sent me copies of several of the pages of the book you referred to "Anderson-Owen-Beall Families" BUT did not send the portions that have the ANDERSON family connection.

 

I would like very much to learn more about the ANDERSON ancestors.  Did you say that your file is included in the "World Connect Project"?  If that is the case..... what is the FILE NAME...and I can access some of the info there.

 

Just last Friday.... I posted my gedcom master file on the project and have been very pleased with the responses.

 

Will visit your webpage and then be back in contact.

Hi Patrick,

 

George Woodfin, who married Martha Elizabeth Anderson, is an ancestor of my

former wife, Gloria Woodfin Justis.

The names, Cobbs and Wycliff, seem to be repeated in the family.

 

Do you know any more about George Woodfin or his son, Beverly?  Such things

as place of death or burial?  Or ancestry of George?

 

Could the George Woodfin, shown in the census below, be the George in

question?  And could the son listed as Berlkley be Augustus Beverly?

I very much enjoyed your web page!  Hopefully I can add a new line of descendants to your file beginning with Thomas Anderson son of Edward.

 

In a book titled History and Family of McCracken Co. KY  I recently found an article submitted by Bonita Abernathy p. 80.  In it she listed the following:

 

Thomas Anderson

m. (1)Martha Jones Anderson (I think this is Martha Jones Brock) children:  Edward L., Anna Elizabeth, Richard Henry, William Oliver, Francis Asbury, Thomas Watkins, George Washington

 

m. (2) Sarah Bibb  (Sarah was mistakenly listed as the 2nd wife of Edward L) children:  Mary Elizabeth (m. Y. P. Reynolds), Martha, Susan, Issac Newton , George T.

 

 

The article also said the family came from  VA (when Edward L was a small child)> Green Co KY>Logan Co KY and mentions some distant relation to Richard Clough Anderson. 

 

Edward L. Anderson is my ancestor.  I have found him in the KY census begining in 1850 Todd Co. and also have family papers.  I noticed you have ? Bibb listed as the first wife of Thomas but I have found a record listing the marriage date as 8 Sep 1825 in Green Co, KY

 

Edward L Anderson b. 11 Jan 1815 VA, d. 2 Nov 1872 KY

m. (1) Mary Norton b. Feb 1821 KY d. 26 Sept 1855 KY dau of William Norton & Mary Hise

children:  Norton Brock, John L., William T., Irene, Mary, Edward L.

 

m. (2) Mary Maxwell

children:  Mattie Lee, Blanche, Lucie

 

The article mentioned above is the first clue I have found concerning the father of Edward L Anderson.  I have noticed some similarities regarding the maiden names.  What do you think the chances are of this connection?  In the census Edward L is listed as born in VA.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Katherine

Notes for Mary Norton:

The Nortons of Russelville, KY by David Morton

p. 71-72

 

        I recall but little of the eldest, Mrs. Mary Anderson, wife of Mr. Edward L. Anderson, as her marriage and removal from Russellville occurred when I was only a child.  I remember that her figure was slight, her features delicate, and her general appearance that of a person in feeble health.  She married young and died early, leaving six children, Norton B., John L., William S,. Irene, Mary, and Edwardl.  Her husband survived her several years and was again married.  He was an amiable and intelligent gentleman and a successful mershant, and efficient and liberal member of the Methodist Shurch, greatly beloved by friends and neighbors.  He lived for a time at Russellville and also at Allensville, and died at Paducah, which had been his home for several years before his death.

 

( one mistake is in the middle initial for William, it should be William T.)

 

       

Children of Edward Anderson and Mary Norton are:

        234             i.    Norton Brock10 Anderson, born Bet. 1842 - 1843.

        235            ii.    John L. Anderson, born Bet. 1844 - 1845.

        236           iii.    William T. Anderson106, born April 15, 1844 in Salem, Kentucky; died December 02, 1924 in Paducah, McCracken County, Kentucky.  He married Ella Blakemore Lake November 08, 1875; born October 28, 1855; died May 15, 1930 in Paducah, McCracken County, Kentucky.

Hi!

 

I am a descendant of William Oliver Anderson son of Thomas8 Anderson and have just recently found your history. I have a few discrepancies and wondered if you could help me clear them up.

 

1. I had Thomas Anderson married to Sarah Hinton (her parents as John and Margaret Hinton). Did she marry a Bibb prior to her marriage to Thomas?

 

2. I have all of the children you list with the exception of George Washington Anderson. I have Richard's middle name as Hinton in place of Henry, and the middle initial of Thomas as O.

 

3. My records do not show any reference to Martha Jones Brock as first wife to Thomas. This seems to be where I am mixed up as I had all the children listed as Sarah's and from your information Martha Brock appears to be the mother.

 

4. I did not have any of the children that you show for Sarah and Thomas.

 

Most of my records are old and I cannot begin to say where I found the information. From William O. and Martha most of mine is from family data and I think correct but older than that I am not sure. Do you have dates and places on other names you listed. Looking through your sources it appears you have done a great deal of work on this line.

 

Any assistance in corrections for me would be appreciated.

 

Elizabeth Baggett

Hi Pat:

 

Thanks for the wonderful information you sent. I have not had time to really absorb everything but happy to get so much. I will be happy to share what I have on descendants of William Oliver Anderson. The majority of mine is on Charles Browder Anderson and my great grandmother Mary Elizabeth Anderson as they are the two that came to Texas.
