Chamberlayne, The Vestry Book of St. Paul's Parish, Hanover  County, Virginia 1706-1786,  (Clearfield Company, Inc.; Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, Maryland 1999).) was born 1663 in New Kent County, Virginia, and died 1716 in Hanover County, Virginia.  He married Mary Overton Bef. 1702, daughter of William Overton and Elizabeth Waters.  She was born June 08, 1673 in Virginia, and died Aft. 1744 in Hanover County, Virginia.

 

Notes for Robert Anderson, Jr.:

        Robert's birth date is derived from Edward L. Anderson and William Pope Anderson publications.  Robert was born in the delta of the Pamunkey River at the head of the York River branch of the Chesapeake Bay.

 

1680        Robert Anderson headright of William Wyatt to New Kent Co.

        It was common practice at the time for Virginia landholders to send their sons back to England to be educated.  A return trip from England to Virginia earned you a headright regardless of whether you had been born in Virginia.

        Robert Anderson, Jr. was a 1703 Vestryman of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent, and Justice of New Kent in 1714. From 1706 to 1716 Robert Anderson was a member of the vestry of St. Paul's parish and signed as Robert Anderson, Jr. Robert Anderson's death in 1716 is recorded in the St. Paul Parish vestry book.  The 727 acres became the "Goldmine" Plantation named after a passing stream.

        His sons were underage at the time of his death and his family has been reconstructed from the deeds of his wife and her sons and the precessioning records of St. Paul's parish.

        Edward L. Anderson in his book "Andersons of Goldmine" assigned many children to him that to me appear to belong to his brothers.

Notes for Elizabeth Dabney:

William Pope Anderson believed that Elizabeth Dabney had married Mathew Anderson but I now think there is better evidence she married Nathaniel Anderson who lived near his mother Mary Overton Anderson.  The Dabney family only knows that she married an Anderson.

Greetings

 

I just found you on Rootsweb.  We have LOTS in common.  I am Bob Anderson,

descended from Charles Anderson, son of Robert Anderson of Goldmine

Plantation, thence Robert III, Robert II, Robert I, Charles II and Charles I (sic)

[so far]...who was married to Elizabeth Hawkins in England.  I have lots of

family collected and am looking for more.  I would be delighted to exchange

information with you if you have any interest.  My 3rd G-grandfather Charles

was a brother to Richard Clough Anderson, also  another brother who was

married to Elizabeth Shelton whose sister Sarah was married to Patrick Henry

, etc. etc.

 

Pls. excuse this brief note, wife just grabbed me by the ear and said we

were going out of town "right now!!!"

 

I look forward to further communications with you when I will not be

interrupted.

OK Pat, here 'tis. 

 

I have been having trouble with Adelphia Cablenet lately who've been

changing the file extension on things I send out.   .jpg's don't arrive as

such when I send them out, etc.   So, if you have trouble with this in any

way pls. let me know.  This is a big issue with me right now, it's

handicapping me.  I send a LOT of photos and other type file extensions on

things that must arrive in the form they were sent.  I have a bone to pick

with them.

 

I did something foolish and erased (overwrote) my latest floppy copy and

even worse, before I found out I overwrote my computer program with it too!

I had just added an entire family line (Poindexter) from my great

grandmother that went 'impossibly' far back, around 1000!  I didn't go that

nearly that far with it!  .  I'm perturbed when anyone thinks they have

accomplished something and gone back that far and they don't even have half

the names and use ???'s to fill in!  Well, at least I have a hard copy

retype the reasonable and documented part all over again.

 

I put this into MS WORD which most people seem to want.  It opened here just

fine after I sent it to myself in a test.  If you'd rather have it some

other way just let me know.   I can give it to you in a GEDCOM format if

you'd like - or maybe like me you'd rather have an Outline Descendent Tree?

That is the easiest for me to follow and work with when trying to figure out

connections.  I couldn't figure a way to chop this off though at Charles -

son of Robert of Goldmine, so you're getting more.

 

Good luck.  I sure hope this is of some help to you.

 

Bob

Notes for Charles Anderson:

        Charles Anderson was born about 1713 in New Kent County at the "Goldmine" plantation.  HIs birth date is based on the fact that he first appears in the St. Paul Parish Vestry book in 1734 and in that same year his mother Mary Anderson deeds to him his portion of his father Robert's estate.

Notes for ? Jones:

"The Richmond and Manchester Advertiser"of 2 July 1796: " Benj. Toler, surv. ex. of John Jones, Cicely Anderson, admx. of Wm. Anderson, Nathaniel Anderson, admr. and Elkanah Talley and Mary, his wife, admrs. of Jn. Anderson (pltfs.) and Eliz. Jones, widow and relict of Jn. Jones, Laney Jones, Rich. Banks and Eliz., his wife, Chas. Lambert and Nancy his wife, Hardin Burnley and Geo. Brackenridge (defs.)."

 

Can anyone explain the relationships among these parties to the chancery court case? Is it possible that the mother of Wm. Anderson, Nathaniel Anderson and John Anderson was a member of the Jones Family; and that Richard Banks, Charles Lambert, Hardin Burnley and Geo. Brackenridge were married to sisters, who were daughters of John and Elizabeth Jones?

HI!!!  I am quite new to computer but saw your posting on GenForum and I am hoping that you can help me or give me some direction. I have ancestors who were in Hanover Co and later Louisa Co. VA.  According to copies from an old family Bible, my David BUNCH  married a Mary"Polly" O .When we were in VA. at some library I read a notation that their 11th child, NATHANIEL's mother's father was Nathaniel ANDERSON. The list of their children is more Anderson names than Bunch , and I wonder if you have any information on the Nathaniel Anderson , born 1710. My line of descent is through John A.(ANDERSON????) BUNCH  who married Hannah Crew. They were Quakers. Family tradition is that we are descended from Pocahontas  , but no proof. A elderly relative use to quote the line of descent, but no one ever wrote it down.  Nadine

I have Bible record for a Mary O "Overton?????) in BUNCH Bible  that she was married to David Bunch 1745. First son is listed as John A.  The following generations have the name "Anderson"  and I really think she is the daughter of Nathaniel Anderson born ca 1700 who was son of Robert Anderson and Mary Overton, but I have no record to prove this. When in a library in Virginia, I found a notation that SHE WAS a daughter of Nathaniel Anderson but no proof or documentation.

 

Can you help me at all or give me some direction???  They were in Louisa Co.VA

I am looking for verification for the name of "Mary O" that married David BUNCH, 11 December 1745/46 He was born in Hanover County that later became Louisa Co. VA. She was born 29 August 1729 Hanover Co. (Louisa Co) VA. I think her maiden name was Anderson-- and the name carried down for years in our family. First son was named John A.(anderson????) Bunch, 2nd son, Joseph married Mary Woodson Anderson, 3rd son was named Pouncey, 4th William then there were sons David, Anthony, Thomas and Nathaniel.

Found a notation in a Virginia library that said her father's name was Nathaniel but there was not any documentation.

 

Can anyone help me?????

Hello:

 

I have found your trees on Rootsweb to be very informative about the Anderson families of Virginia.  Your research shows a great deal of wonderful work!  I would like to know if you have ever run up on any information on Capt. Matthew Anderson of Glouchester County, VA.  His wife was Mary Dabney and he owned a large home on the Panmunkey River called "Exchange Plantation".  He had three daughters who married into the Hudgins family of Matthews county.

 

Susan Anderson married John Lewis Hudgins s/o Houlder Hudgins, Sr.(1st wife, 2 children)

Elizabeth Anderson also married the same John Lewis Hudgins (2nd wife, 3 children)

and Mary Anderson who married Houlder Hudgins, Sr., father of above (3rd wife , 2 children)

 

I have not seen much information on this family, but believe you have seen him in the census of the era.

 

 

Thanks for your time and interest in this question.

 

Kimberly

"ANTHONY NEW was a prominent member of Red River, and, afterwards, of Bethel Association.  He was one of the most distinguished citizens of Southern Kentucky, and served three terms in the U. S. Congress, between 1811 and 1823.  He was a very early settler in what is now Todd county, and was a member of the West Fork of Red River church.  In 1810, he was chosen Moderator of Red River Association, and served in that capacity on at least five subsequent occasions.  After the constitution of Elkton church, he held membership in that organization, and represented it in Bethel Association.  The author has not ascertained the time of his death."

PHILADELPHIA, February 27th, 1794.

 

DEAR SIR,

The resolutions proposed by Mr. Madison, upon the principle of securing the advantages to the navigation and commerce of the United States, which of right belong to her, and which have been hitherto usurped by Britain, have been postponed to the first Monday in March, by which time, the public will may be tolerably ascertained, and foreign occurrences better known: A state like ours, whose prosperity

depends upon the regular exportation of bulky commodities, to distant countries, must be deeply interested to secure the national means of doing it, independent of foreign revolutions and wars.

 

      The idea of a naval force (heretofore proposed) is yet progressing, attended with an additional tax ; it is unfortunate that the benefits expected from the one, are by no means, so certain as the burthen upon the community, which will inevitably flow from the other, should it succeed. -- Demands have been made from a French island, for aids of men, ammunition and provisions; but as these do not derive their origin

from France itself, it is hardly probable that they will be persisted in, or productive of any degree of embarrassment.

 

      The subject of the slave-trade, has been introduced by the Quakers, into Congress, and now stands upon the report of a committee, favorable to the object of the petitioners ; this only extends to prevent a practice of some people, who have lately been employed, in transporting slaves from Africa to the West-India islands; and is not levelled in the remotest degree, against the rights of private property.

 

      The Senate doors are to opened at the next session ; an event long desired, and from which the best predictions are deduced in favor of republicanism.

 

      It would be improper to conceal an apprehension, to meet which, the public mind ought to be prepared. It is not a secret, that prevarications have been resorted to by the British minister, to avoid a negotiation for the fulfillment of the treaty, and that his court have almost peremptorily refused to surrender the western posts upon any event. Time only can develope the real motives of a conduct so unjust.

 

      The late successes of France, against an unexampled combination of despots, will, I hope, clear away the clouds which had begun to darken our political horizon, and secure to us peace, the best pledge for liberty, safety and happiness.  Should, however these precious objects of society be unjustly assailed, contrary to my expectation, that the efforts in their defence may be commensurate to their importance, is the fervent hope of

Dear Sir,

Your most obedient-humble servant,

Anthony New

In Reply to: Col. Anthony NEW 1747 - 1833 by C.L. Dibble  of 728 

 

I am descended from Col. New through Lucy New and Robert Gatewood line. I have found articles through Genealogy Library that state he is the son of Joanna New Baynham and stepson of John Baynham. His House of Rep. voting record is available through Library of Congress.

Don't have much else.

Elizabeth Clark was the sister of Capt. William Clark (Corps of Discovery) and George Rogers Clark & Jonathan Clark (both of Revolutionary War fame), all of whom were born in Virginia and went to KY before 1798.

 

The will of John Clark (their father) written in July 1799 names his son-in-law Richard C. Anderson, the recipient of two slaves, Kate & Phebe.

 

I am searching for descendants of Richard C. and Elizabeth Clark Anderson. Please contact me directly at faywade@aol.com.

 

Thanks,

Notes for Charles Anderson:

Governor Of Ohio

 

Memorial Record of Western Kentucky, Lewis Publishing Company, 1904, pp 656-664 (portrait in document) [Lyon] HON. CHARLES ANDERSON. The life history of few men of the nation have touched along so many lines of usefulness as that of Governor Charles Anderson, and yet there have been few men who have sought to figure in as limited extent in the public eye as did he. His service was never promoted by the hope of public reward or honors, but was the outpouring of a kindly spirit, deeply interested in mankind and the highest development of the race. Material improvement, intellectual and aesthetic culture and moral progress all felt the stimulus of his efforts. His nation received his loyal support during the darkest hours of its history, and there stands to-day [sic] in Kentucky one of its most beautiful towns as a monument to its founder, Governor Charles Anderson. Governor Anderson was born at Soldier's Retreat--his father's homestead,--in Jefferson county, Kentucky, on the 1st of June, 1814. This house, erected by his father, stood on land allotted to him by the state of Virginia in recognition of his services as a colonel in the Continental army in the war of the Revolution. The ancestral history of the family is traced back to Robert Anderson, who was born in Scotland and was of pure Scotch descent. He and his brother David came to America in 1665 and settled in the colony of Virginia at New Kent Court House. His son was Robert Anderson, second, of St. Peter's Parish, and his grandson was Robert, third, who purchased an estate which was known as "Goldmines," and thus he came to be called "Robin of Goldmines." He wedded Elizabeth Clough, a maiden of the Virginia colony. Among their children was Richard Clough Anderson, the father of the Governor. He was born at the family home, Goldmines, in Hanover county, January 12, 1750 (O.S.), and was commissioned a captain of the Virginia militia in his early manhood. He served with distinction in the Revolutionary war, rising to the rank of colonel, and for his services was granted by the Virginia house of burgesses a tract of land in Kentucky, where he afterward established his home, calling his estate Soldier's Retreat, a home such as gained for the state her reputation for hospitality. It was here that the noted Revolutionary patriot passed away, October 16, 1826. As surveyor general of the state he established offices in Louisville, and from the year 1783 or 1784 he made his home continuously in this state. He was twice married, his first union being with Miss Elizabeth Clark, a sister of General George Rogers Clark and General Lewis Clark. Of this marriage four children were born. The eldest of these was Richard Clough Anderson, Jr., who was elected to congress in 1817, at the same time with Henry Clay. He was our first minister to the United States of Colombia, and died en route from Bogota to Panama to attend the first Pan-American-Panama Canal Congress in 1826. For his second wife Colonel Anderson chose Miss Sarah Marshall, an own cousin of his first wife and of Chief Justice Marshall. They became the parents of thirteen children, of whom Governor Anderson was the youngest son that reached adult age. Governor Anderson began his education under the direction of a private tutor, and by the time he was six years of age had made considerable progress in Latin. He was only twelve years of age at the time of his father's death. When a youth of fifteen he became a student in the Miami University at Oxford, Ohio, where he was graduated with the class of 1833, being then nineteen years of age. Desiring to make the practice of law his life work, he was the first of a thousand students who studied law in the office of Judge Pirtle, of Louisville. He also read law in Cincinnati, and then entered upon the practice of his profession in Dayton, Ohio, where he soon afterward entered into partnership with Judge Joseph Crane. Later he removed to Cincinnati, where he formed a partnership with Mr. Rufus King, and in both cities he enjoyed a large and lucrative patronage. He was always a deep thinker, a profound reasoner and logical in argument, and he won success in his chosen calling. His broad mind, keen sensibilities and strong sympathy, however, caused him to give considerable time and attention to the study of various questions relative to the political, social and economic conditions of the country and to its intellectual progress. He was known as one of the early political leaders of Ohio and served in the state senate in 1843-4, leaving the impress of his individuality and patriotic spirit upon the legislation enacted during that period. There is no one man to whom Ohio owes more for the establishment of her school system upon a firm and progressive basis. When opposition was sharp and bitter, his efforts in its defense were never relaxed, and his energy and eloquence in its behalf were potent efforts for good, producing results that are still enjoyed by the entire school population of the state. This alone would entitle him to distinction and the gratitude of his race, and yet he performed many other works equally commendable and that render him one of the benefactors of mankind. He it was who suggested the establishment of the first home in America for the volunteers of the Civil war, that at Dayton, Ohio, and as the result of his idea and his labors in this regard, there are now scattered throughout the country these homes of the brave boys in blue who stood as the defenders of the Union cause. Governor Anderson was a man of keen insight, with marked recognition of possibilities, and he looked beyond the exigencies of the moment to the possibilities of the future. He saw what railroad-building would mean to the country, and while in the Ohio senate he became the originator of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Railroad, and after his removal to Kentucky, he was one of the three men most influential in the building of the Elizabethtown & Paducah Railroad, now the Louisville division of the Illinois Central Railroad. After residing in Cincinnati from 1845 until 1858, Governor Anderson removed to the south. He left Ohio because of ill health, and ere [sic] he said goodby to his fellow citizens, his brethren in the legal fraternity held a banquet in his honor. Going to San Antonio, Texas, he secured a large body of land near that city and there engaged in the breeding of horses and cattle, in which business he was engaged at the time of the outbreak of the Civil war. He had watched with interest the progress of events in the south, and never attempted to disguise his love of country or his loyal devotion to the Union cause. In fact, when secession was advocated and encouraged by the people of Texas, he valiantly defended the Union cause and made a number of speeches in defense of his opinions that so incensed southern sentiment that he was arrested and imprisoned. However, from the camp in which he was imprisoned, by reason of some outside aid and the inattention of his guards, he escaped, fled to Mexico, whence his family had preceded him, and thence sailed to New York. Immediately afterward he went to Dayton, Ohio, where he was tendered an appointment as colonel of the Ninety-third Regiment of Ohio Volunteers. This he accepted, and with his regiment, fully recruited, armed and equipped, left Dayton for Kentucky, August 20, 1862. He was in command of his regiment at Stone River, the first important engagement in which he participated, and on the 21st of February, 1863, he was wounded, his injuries unfitting him for further field service and thus forcing him to resign. He was a man of unflinching courage in the face of danger, and his known bravery inspired his men to deeds of valor. He won the love of his soldiers, whom he never needlessly exposed to danger, but when duty called never failed to lead them into the thickest of the fight. On leaving the army Colonel Anderson rejoined his family in Dayton, and soon afterward, at the solicitation of the Republican party, he accepted the nomination for lieutenant governor of Ohio and was elected in 1863. Upon the death of Governor Brough he succeeded to the office of governor, and filled out the unexpired term with marked capability, safely guiding the ship of state through troubled waters. After his retirement from office Governor Anderson returned to his native state, becoming a resident of Eddyville in 1866. He purchased a large tract of land near the town and superintended important and extensive agricultural interests. About 1874 he laid out the town of Kuttawa, and in 1877 he took up his abode there. While in college Governor Anderson had formed the acquaintance of Miss Eliza J. Brown, and in 1835 they were married. They became the parents of six children, of whom three survive, the only surviving son being Colonel Latham Anderson. The daughters are Miss Kitty and Mrs. Belle Skinner, the latter of Waynesville, North Carolina, and the former still living at the family home in Kuttawa. The mother was born in Dayton, Ohio, October 20, 1816, and died in Kuttawa, November 19, 1901. She was a daughter of Henry and Catherine (Patterson) Brown. Her father was a native of Virginia and went to Kentucky as private secretary to Governor Preston. In his political affiliations Governor Anderson was first a Whig and afterward a Republican, and in his religious connections he was a Presbyterian. His labors, however, benefited people of all races, nationalities, creeds and beliefs. He was a man of broadest sympathy and humanitarian principles, and his activity seems to have touched upon almost every department of labor that has benefited mankind. He always continued his efforts in behalf of education, and he became active in prison reform associations. He was also a zealous factor in southern commercial conventions, greatly desiring the business development and material upbuilding [sic] of the south, which he loved so well. He was a man of intense artistic temperament, evinced in the love of all forms of art, and, being a passionate lover of nature, the practice of landscape gardening was his favorite pursuit. This was manifest not only in the external decorations of his own home, and he was also instrumental in the founding of park cemeteries and public parks. It may be justly be claimed that he was the originator of the park-cemetery idea, for which America bears the palm among all nations, for in 1845 he suggested and outlined the plan for Woodland cemetery, near Dayton, Ohio. He has left a monument to his genius in landscape architecture, of the naturally lovely surroundings, and in the system of parks, including Cemetery Park, with which he has munificently endowed the town. Living in the midst of ideally beautiful surroundings, Governor Anderson spent the evening of a happy, useful and honorable life, passing away on the 2nd of September, 1895, in the eighty-second year of his age. "His life was gentle and the elements So mixed in him that Nature might stand up And say to all the world, ‘This was a man."

Dear Patrick,

 

       Here's the line as promised.

       Do you think any of the "cousins" may have more info. I am interested in Elizabeth Anderson's birth dates, etc.

 

       William Mynn Thorton who married Elizabeth Anderson is probably the father of the University of Va professor of the same name, who Thornton Hall there is named after and the grandfather of the John T. Thornton who witnessed the great fire there (see Thornton discussion on Thornton surname on rootsweb.)

       John Gilliam who married Elizabeth M. Taylor is the Gilliam of Robert E. Lee fame. Lee spent his last night on his way home from Appomattox in a tent on the Gilliam's property and had breakfast with them.  See quotes, following line.

       Note also connections to the Overtons and the continuance of the Dabney name through the line.

Robert E. Lee and the Gilliams

 

 

Near Cartersville, VA, July 22, 1865

My Dear Rob,

       . . . I saw several  of your comrades, Cockes, Kennons and Gilliams, who inquired after you all. Give my love to F. and Johnny, in which all here unite, and believe me most truly and affectionately

Lexington, VA, December 18, 1869

My Dear Fitzhugh,

       . . . I have received a letter from your Uncle Carter telling me of his pleasant visit to you and of his agreeable impression of his nephew and new niece. He was taken very sick in Richmond and delayed there so long that he could not be present at Wm. KennonÆs wedding, and missed the festivities at his neighbor GilliamÆs and at Norwood. . .

       Your affectionate father,

. . . After Appomattox, as he rode wearily homeward, he planned to stop overnight at the home of his brother, Charles Carter Lee, in Powhatan, the house already was so crowded with guests that Mrs. Gilliam, neighbor across the way, was asked if she could receive General Lee. She made ready the best room happy in the prospect of having him under her roof, but when he arrived she was told in his manner of courteous finality that he could not think of troubling her and that he would camp out, but that he would be grateful if she would entertain an officer who happened to be traveling with his wife. Then he added, as he saw the ladyÆs disappointment, that if it were agreeable to her he would be happy to take breakfast with her the next morning. He bivouacked that night with the officers who still keep this companyùit was probably the last time he ever did soùand he appeared at the appointed hour at his hostessÆs. The anguish of defeat had almost numbed him, and the burden of the maimed, the dead, and the widowed lay on his heart, but even then while the corpse of his country still twitched, he did not forget his love of youth. After the meal he took the little girl of the family on his kneesùshe was about tenùand when he had caressed her, asked her if she did not want to go with him to Richmond, where, he told her, he would find a ôlot of little sweethearts for her.ö She still lives, with more than seventy year behind her, and she cherishes that moment in the lap of General Lee as the most precious in her life.

Douglas Southall Freeman, ôLee and the Ladies,ö <U>ScribnerÆs Magazine</U>, Volume 78, July-December 1925, p. 468.

 

 

       On his way to Richmond, which he reached on the 12th of April, General Lee stopped for the night near the residence of his brother, Charles Carter Lee, of Powhatan County, and although importuned by his brother to pass the night under his roof, the General persisted in pitching his tent by the side of the road  (This was not immediately in front of the residence of his brother, but of that of Mr. John Gilliam whose farm adjoined that of Mr. Lee, a more elevated and desirable site) and going into camp as usual. This continued self-denial may be only explained upon the hypothesis that he desired to have his men know that he shared their privations to he very last.

<U>Southern Historical Society Papers</U>, Volume 15, p. xxvii.

 

 

       At evening Lee reaches his brotherÆs farm in Powhatan County. He was made welcome, of course, but as the house was crowded he insisted on using his own tent. He was then invited to ôspend the nightö in familiar Virginia phrase, at the residence of John Gilliam, whose farm adjoined that of C. C. Lee. He asked, instead, that the available room be given a sick officer and his wife who had driven up. Learning from his brotherÆs family that the Gilliams were disappointed at his refusal and were very anxious that he at least eat a meal at their table, he sent word that if it were agreeable he would take breakfast with them. Then, having procured a pair of shoes for the soldier to whom he had promise them, he went into camp, immediately in front of the Gilliam home. It was his final bivouac, the last night he ever slept under canvas.

       The next morning he ate with the Gilliam family. It probably was at this time, and in answer to a question from Mr. Gilliam that he said many people would wonder why he did not make his escape before the surrender, when that course was predictable. The reason, he explained, was that he was unwilling to separate his fate for that of the men who had fought under him so long. He was unrestrained in his conversation and made much of a little girl of about ten, the daughter of the Gilliams, who was presented to him. He took her on his knee and caressed her. ôPolly,ö he said, ôcome with me to Richmond and I will give you a beau.ö

Douglas Southall Freeman, <U>R. E. Lee: A Biography</U>, Volume 4, New York: Charles Scribner and Sons, 1935, p. 160-161

 

 

       At bedtime that night, Robert refused too crowd CarterÆs family with three extra people (by now Giles Cooke had turned off to his home). He also declined the invitation of neighbors,  Mr. and Mrs. Gilliam, asking them instead to take in a sick officer and his wife who had stopped along the road and were preparing to camp out. So as not to hurt the GilliamsÆ feelings, he agreed to have breakfast with them.

       So the tent was pitched for the last time, and Lee went into camp, to the disappointment of Walter Taylor, who wrote that thought he appreciated LeeÆs desire to have his men know that he had shared their privations to the last, he, personally, could have easily done without this final bit of self-denial.

       The presence of ten-year-old Polly Gilliam made breakfast additionally pleasing for Robert, who took her on his knee afterward and talked to her in that engaging way he had with children. When it came time to go, he kissed her and whispered:

       ôPolly, come with me to Richmond, and I will give you a beau.ö

Margaret Sanborn, <U>Robert E. Lee, the Complete Man</U>. Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1967,  p 240.

 

       The day of April 15 would see Lee into Richmond. Just six days before, he had met with Grant to sign the surrender agreement. Three days ago, his regiments had laid down their arms in the surrender ceremony. Now, stopping for breakfast along the road at the house of a family named Gilliam, Lee showed the lighter side of his nature. Always, he enjoyed the conversation of ladies and of children; above all, he enjoyed his teasing encounters with little girls. This day his entrance into Richmond as a paroled prisoner of war would cause many to weep, but the man who symbolized this despair took ten-year-old Polly Gilliam on his knee, smiled at her, and said, ôPolly, come with me to Richmond and I will give you a beau.ö

Dear Pat

 

In your web page on Colonial Virginia Anderson Families,

 

[snipped a discussion of an error since corrected]

 

John Anderson married his cousin, Mary6 Anderson (Robert5, Robert4, Robert3, Richard2, Richard1), and died abt 1788.  W. P. Anderson indicates this later generation John Anderson may have been the son of John5 Anderson (Robert4, Robert3, Richard2, Richard1) and Sarah Waddy.  However, I believe he may have been the son of Benjamin Anderson of Hanover Co. and Mary Dickerson.  He named his oldest & only son, Benjamin.  The Benjamin who married Mary Dickerson may have been the son of Bartelot Anderson & Mary Cosby, but if he was, he married his 1st cousin through the Cosby Family.  (Ref: The Early Dec. of Wm Overton & Elizabeth Waters of  VA. &  Allied Families p19, see note (3)).

 

Both John Anderson's lived in Hanover Co and appear to have had a brother named Nathaniel.   The older Nathaniel died about 1744.  The 2nd Nathaniel Anderson was a Continental Line Officer during the Revolution.  He married Sarah Jones (my ancestor by her 2nd marriage), and died Dec 1797.

 

There were so many John Anderson's in Hanover Co. VA during the 1700s that determining which was which is very difficult.  At least three from Hanover served with the Continental Line of VA during the Revolution, and I have been in contact with descendants of the other two.

 

I realize keeping you home page up is quite a task.  Please let me know if you have questions, need clarification, or better documentation on what I am saying in this MSG..

 

Sincerely,

Harry Anderson

And, yes, "Jack" was the REV WAR soldier you mentioned. Sarah Travers Lewis (Scott) Anderson has identified this John6 as the son of John5 and nephew of Robert5 ... She did not state who the mother was .... Sarah does this in her book, "LEWISES, MERIWETHER & THEIR KIN" which was published a gazillion years ago ....

In Reply to: Re: Anderson of Hanover County, VA by Patrick Anderson  of 11590 

 

 

My connection to this family is through Martha Talley, daughter of Elkanah and Mary Anderson Talley. Apparently Elkanah and Mary Anderson Talley were deceased by 1805, when Thomas Starke became guardian of Martha(Patty) and Wm. Talley, two of the children. Starke continued as the guardian of Martha, until 1813; and guardian of Wm. Talley, until 1816. On 24 March 1812, the following notice appeared in the Richmond Enquirer and the Virginia Patriot: "Married at the res. of Maj. Thomas Starke, on Thurs. last (March 19) MR. THOMAS SATTERWHITE, of King William Co., to MISS MARTHA T. TALLEY of Hanover."

 

Thomas Satterwhite was the son (by a late second marriage) of Mann Satterwhite and Susannah (Williamson?) Crenshaw of King William County (see "The Papers of Edward Pleasants Valentine" for a discussion of the Satterwhite Family). Thomas and Martha Talley Satterwhite lived across the Pamunkey River in King William County on a 650 acre tract which had originally belonged to the Dabney Family. They had an only son, Eldred W. Satterwhite (born about 1815), who was my gggrandfather. After the death of Thomas Satterwhite in 1820, Martha Talley Satterwhite married John W. Valentine and continued to live on the Pamunkey River tract until Eldred Satterwhite became of age (about 1836). She and John Valentine may have moved West after that date.

 

I note that you did not show a son, William, in your list of children for Elkanah Talley and Mary Anderson. I believe there may have also been a son, Elkanah, who married a member of the DeJarnette Family. Where did your list come from?

 

 

 

 

        27.  William8 Anderson (John7, Robert6, Robert5, Robert4, Richard3, "York Watershed"2, "Colonial Virginia"1) was born April 05, 1744 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died July 22, 1792.  He married Cecelia Anderson (Source: William Pope Anderson, Anderson Family Records,  (W. F. Schaeffer & Co., Cincinnati, Ohio; 1936).), daughter of Robert Anderson and Elizabeth Clough.  She was born August 02, 1748 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died September 30, 1802.

       

Children are listed above under (18) Cecelia Anderson.

 

        28.  Nathaniel8 Anderson (John7, Robert6, Robert5, Robert4, Richard3, "York Watershed"2, "Colonial Virginia"1) was born Abt. 1750 in Hanover County, Virginia, and died December 20, 1798 in Caroline County, Virginia.  He married Sarah Jones.  She was born Abt. 1770, and died August 28, 1840.

 

Notes for Nathaniel Anderson:

anderssr@hom.net

Harry F. Anderson

A Nathaniel Anderson born maybe about 1750 was an officer in the Revolution. He married Sarah Jones, and died Dec 1997 in Hanover or Caroline Co VA. I am about 85% certain he was a brother of John Anderson who died 1787 and married Mary Anderson. An Hanover Co., VA deed refers to him as Nathaniel Anderson Jr. probable to distingluish him from Nathaniel Anderson (born 1742?) the son of David Anderson.

 

Posted by: ollie clarke  Date: January 22, 2003 at 14:19:40

According to Hopkins Book on Caroline 1787-1810 Nathaniel was ded by 1803. Names following children:

Sally Jones Anderson

William Skelton Anderson

Catherine Terrell Anderson

Also names wife as Sally with 2nd husband William Anderson.

Am trying to connect Caroline families listed in Hopkins Book. Any help on these Anderson's appreciated.

Pat,

[snip]

This looks like  my ancestor, William Anderson (1773-1836). of Hanover & Caroline Co.,VA, but he married Sarah Jones not Sarah Taylor.  These have to be three of her six children, but Catherine Terrell. was from a prevous marriage to Nathaniel Anderson (died Dec 1797).  Hebert Anderson (born 1800) was the third child of her three children by her marriage to William Anderson.

 

William Anderson and Sarah Jones' child, Armstead (born abt 1802), was also known as William A. Anderson, and he was my g-g-grandfather.  If this is one of the Armstead's you were talking about then I have plenty of information on him.  The other Armstead (son of Garland) was his uncle who I thought was the one in Richmond, VA in 1802.

 

 I believe Sarah Taylor was the 2nd wife of another Nathaniel Anderson who died in 1812.

Children of Nathaniel Anderson and Sarah Jones are:

        119             i.    Sally Jones9 Anderson, born July 09, 1790; died 1839.

        120            ii.    Gilliam Skelton Anderson, born Abt. 1793.  He married Mary Willis January 12, 1818 in Richmond , Virginia.

        121           iii.    Katherine Terrell Anderson, born Abt. 1795.  She married William E. Green.

Hello Patrick,  I posted a response to the George Anderson query.  After I had I realized that you had all that data below the message.  I

descend from Geo. Anderson Jr.  His daughter Elizabeth(Betsy) Gardener Anderson m. Minor Winn...my Ancestors.  Thomas Winn who m. into the family of the previous generation was his uncle.  What you list as the pedigree up the Woodson/Naper is what I came up with over a decade ago. I even made a couple of trips to Palmyra and researched the records myself.  Minor Winn's dau. Susan m. Richard McCary.  They were my ggg grandparents.  An interesting fact is that Catherine Banks m. a second time and through that marriage became the ancestor of Thomas Jefferson, so we have one ancestor in common with him.  I'm speaking from memory, so I might not be quoting it correctly, but there is proof.   I did that research over a decade ago.   Charlie Cook in Louisiana Bayou Country

 

       

Children of Elizabeth Anderson and Thomas Winn are:

        133             i.    Elizabeth Pledger10 Winn, born March 09, 1781.

Just found your web page on Anderson. I descend from Pouncey and Elizabeth Holland (d/o Michael Holland) Anderson. I have printed out the 20 page Anderson's and will go over it good. Sure would like to have a download of this to put on my computer if that is possible?

 

Believe I can add a little to what you have. It is so extensive and really good.

 

Another interest I have in this Anderson line is: The early Ambrose Joshua Smith that lived in Hanover/Louisa Co's VA was closely associated with the Pouncey Anderson family. I have never found a connection but think it possible that he married an Anderson?? Her maiden name was Judith.

 

Descendant of Pouncey's (Elizabeth Dabney m. Christopher Columbus Johnson and moved to Spartanburg District, SC)

 

I will be happy to download you what I have on the Anderson family.

The best information on your family is in the three books by W. P. Anderson. Your line is correct for the 1st three generations..  If you have questions about the last three generations you give or more information on the 1st three, I will have to look it up in these books.  I have a copy of  two of his books, and there is a copy of the part of the first book, ANDERSON RECORDS, that I do not have, in the local Macon GA. library.

 

A big question I now have is: Was the first Robert Anderson who married Cecila Massie born in Virginia or England?? Most researchers assume he is a descendant of one of the early Richard Anderson's who settled in Virginia about 1635,  but I am not sure.

 

I have seen a statement in a book that he married Cecila Massie in London, England, but I do not remember the name of the book. There is a statement in a Family Treemaker File that he married Cecila Massie abt 1686 in England (6142787 Fiche 36).  These statements can not be accepted without proof from a primary record.

 

I would like to find a marriage record in England, but I have not had any experence searching for records in England.

 

My ancestor is Garland Anderson (1742-1811) who probably was the son of Barteot Anderson and Mary Cosby. Most researchers give this Bartelot as the son of Robert Anderson and Mary Overton, but I have never seen proof . There is certainly a connection with the Robert Anderson family.

 

My new email address is msn://@mail.mar@/compose.htm?NW=true&mailto:anderson_239@msn.com . The user name is anderson_239.

 

Just who are you?  Are you Laura Shelton Anderson Brooks?  I only received your email address not a name or nickname.

Can you help me a bit... I descend from a long line of Robert Andersons, I believe it goes like this -

 

Robert Anderson, who married Cecilia Massie,

         their son Robert Anderson who married Mary Overton,

                 their son Robert Anderson, who married Elizabeth Clough,

                         their son Robert Anderson, who married Elizabeth Shelton

                                 their son Robert Anderson, who married Maria Clough Shelton (when you look

                                 at the previous two surnames of wives, that is almost scary),

                                         their daughter, Laura Shelton Anderson who married Nathaniel Skinner Brooks.

 

Do you have any informaton on this line?

Pat,

 

Forgive me for not sending the information I have on William O. Anderson. I have had family here and thought we would have time to send the file but there was so much going on and not enough time. My genealogy is on Ultimate Family Tree and I tried sending a small file in RTF to a niece to see if it worked and was not successful. Will either try that again or maybe I can send it through a Gedcom file. In any case I have not forgotten and will try again when I have more time. There is so much I need to learn and am amazed with all you sent and so well documented. I have been gathering data for years but did not realize the importance of documenting sources in the early years.

 

I wrote to Eleanor Poindexter regarding George N. Yates m. Mary Elizabeth Anderson. They were my great grandparents and for 20 years I have tried to find something on him, all to no avail. I asked her source as thought it might give me a clue but have not had a response. Is she a professional genealogist?

Hi Patrick, I am writing in the hopes that either you or one of your many contributors can help me sort out a tangled web of Anderson marrying Anderson.  I am trying to attach Benjamin Shackleford Anderson and Sarah Elinor Anderson to their colonial roots. 

 

Benjamin S. Anderson was born August 22 1818 in Goldmine, Fluvanna Co. VA. and died march 09, 1884 in Elk Creek, Colusa Co. CA.  He is believed to be the son of William H. Anderson and Rosemond Kidd.  After the death of his first wife, William Anderson remarried a widow (name unknown) who had two boys.  The children's names were David and George.  William Anderson died in Casey Co. KY. July 22 1848.

Hi, Pat

        You may not have seen my reply to you in the Virginia Gen Forum. If not, thanks again. You may be confused by this but I am enclosing a message which I found in my mother's memorabilia regarding the Andersons of Virginia. I copied the letter just as it was written so you will find errors in the writing and probably much erroneous information. However, I did want to see what you thought of the context and may have more info for me. Where could I find a copy of the book written by William Pope Anderson?

        I do wish I had found this sooner. It was the incentive for me to go into this family history and I could have checked a few things out with my mother and even with my great grandmother a few years back.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and any further assistance will be appreciated.

Mr. Marshall Shelpman,

South Bend, Indiana

 

Dear Sir;

 

               Through the kindness of your grand niece, Mrs. Mary Wirries, of Butler, Ind. I have found out that you are probably a grandson of Robert Anderson, who was son of Robert Anderson, a soldier, and some sort of officer during the American Revolution. If so, I hope you are in good health and able to give me some very much desired information concerning the Andersons. I am really hopeful of being able to write a family history of the Andersons. If you are a great grandson of Robert Anderson, of the Revolution, you will probably know that he had the following children; I don't know the order: Walter (Wat), Samuel, Pinkney, John, Richard, and Robert. Also Margaret, married to Mr. Carlton; Jane, married Cadwallader Jones (my grandmother) and Nancy who was accidentally killed in Gibson Co., Ind., by her brother Robert, who was helping to arrest a desperado who had taken shelter in the home of Samuel Anderson. Nancy was at her brother's for the day.

 

               The first I knew for sure of great grandfather's family, Robert of the Revolution, was that he and family arrived in Gibson county, Indiana, about 1805-6. They had lived in Kentucky for some time before coming to Indiana.  Robert, Sr. was born in Va. But seems to have done most of his soldiering in South Carolina. He was captured at Charleston, and after that, being denied an exchange, fought King George all over South Carolina, against the law of nations, being wounded at the battle of Kings Mountain.

 

               He lived in Indiana from about 1805 to 1816. He then removed to Edwards County, Ill., where he died between 1826 and 1836. In 1836, his widow, age 85, and I think all the sons and daughters, then living, removed to western Arkansas, stopping for a few months in Barry County, Mo. My father, John Jones, son of Cadwallader Jones, who had married Jan Anderson, then a young man of 19 accompanied the Andersons and Carltons to the Boston Mountains in Arkansas. He then went on west with a hunting party led by Kit Carson, and was gone for three years, coming back to Ill. another way.  He died about 1890, and never during his lifetime was able to again hear from his  uncles,  aunts and cousins. Three years ago I received the information through the Garretts of Gibson County, Ind. That Samuel Anderson removed to Fannin County, Texas, from Ark., about 1847, and that upon his arrival there he and all his family took down with typhoid fever, he and every one of the family died. I have never heard from any of the others, though I think none of the brothers went with Samuel to Texas.

 

                If you know what became of the others, who they married, and any other information, kindly give me all I know.

 

               Some few years ago I ran across the genealogy of Richard Clough Anderson, born in Hanover County, Va., and who was a colonel in the War of the Revolution. I noticed he had a brother, born 1740-1named Robert, the eldest of the family. This Richard Clough had a son, Maj. Robert Anderson, who commanded at Fort Sumter at the opening of the Civil War. As I had heard my father say that he and Maj. Robert were second cousins, I began working on the theory that our Revolutionary Robert and Colonel Richard Clough Anderson were brothers. Every figment I have learned since has led to that conclusion. And your grand niece has given me, I hop, the final proof. In speaking of her kinsmen, through the Anderson family she mentions a number of Dabneys. Now in the Richard Clough Anderson genealogy it is mentioned that his brother Robert married, 1st a Shelton, 2nd a Dabney. Now if the Dabneys in your family were named for the family of our great grandmother Anderson, then I will know, or be reasonably assured that we have the same line that Richard Clough came through.

 

                 If you have the information, tell me who you understand Robert of the Revolution married for a second wife, who I think was mother to most of his children.

 

NOTE: This is the end of the letter sent to my great uncle from a W. R. Jones from Yellville, Arkansas, on a letterhead which said Lands & Investments dated 7/31. My great grandfather was Robert Dabney Shelpman, and my grandmother  (his daughter) was named Anna Mayo Shelpman.  Both the names Dabney and Mayo run through our family names.

 

I believe Nathaniel Anderson and Frances Woodson had a son named Robert b. 7/17/1784 who had a daughter named Margaret Mayo Anderson by his second wife, Rebecca Pettus.  This Margaret Mayo married an Abel Shelpman.  There I have hit a brick wall and I may not be following the right trail. I am very new at this and the only people I know who could enlighten me are long since gone.

 

       

Children of Robert Anderson and Rebecca Pettus are:

        195             i.    Margaret Mayo11 Anderson, born Bet. 1810 - 1825.  She married Abel Shelpman.

Thank you so much for the file. That was the track I was following and now I am sure it is the right one. I know that Nathaniel and Mary Mayo had a son named Robert who had a daughter named Margaret Mayo Anderson who married an Abel Shelpman. I have no dates for Abel but, since she was born in 1827, I am thinking they may have had a son whom they named Robert Dabney.

Margaret did have a brother named Robert Dabney Anderson. The dates all seem to fit. Am I taking too much for granted?

Dear Pat, I intended to send you this when I first found it. I know for sure now that Abel Shelpman is my great great grandfather because I have always known that Robert Dabney had at least 2 brothers, Marshall and Edward, and a sister whose name I had never heard.

 

I also do not recall hearing of George.Of course Abel's wife's name is misspelled but the age is right. Everything else fits right in. Thanks again for your help and encouragement.

ALLAN GROSS'S  MOTHER JANE'S SIDE IS (BURNS-SHAY-ANDERSON), &  MARVON SHAY  IS ALLAN'S GRANDFATHER, & JOHN W. SHAY IS ALLAN'S GGRANDFATHER WHO MARRIED EMMA JANE ANDERSON WHO IS HIS GGRANDMOTHER, THEN ON TO THE ANDERSON SIDE, WHERE CAPT. GEORGE P. ANDERSON IS EMMA'S DAD & HIS DAD IS "ROBERT ANDERSON" & FINALLY I GET TO "NATHANIEL" WHO SUPPODESLY MARRIED "MARRIANNA MAYO"!!

 

I AM READY TO TOSS EVERYTHING & GIVE UP! I HAVE MARIANNA'S PARENTS AS EITHER JOHN & MARY (TABB) MAYO OR JAMES MAYO SR. & MARTHA WILLIAMS OR BETH UNDERWOOD, THEN VALENTINE MAYO & ANN A. MECKELBURROUGH. I HAVEN'T HAD THE TIME TO GET INTO THE EXACT DATES ON THE MAYO SIDE TO SEE WHO IS FATHER & GRANDFATHER YET. BUT NOW, I DON'T EVERN KNOW IF I'M ON THE RIGHT FAMILY!!!!

 

CAN YOU HELP ME OUT SOME??? I WAS PLANNING TO HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET FOR EACH OF THE ANDERSON FAMILY MEMBERS AT THE THANKSGIVING DINNER TABLE, BUT THIS NOW SEEMS LIKE IT WON'T HAPPEN. TWO OF THE ANDERSON CLAN, ARE ALSO INTERESTED IN GENEALOGY & I'M NOW WORRIED THAT WE'VE ALL BEEN CHACING THE WRONG PEOPLE!

 

WOULD APPRECIATE ANY CLARIFICATION YOU CAN GIVE ME, AS I'M ANXIOUSLY AWAITING YOUR REPLY.

 

SINCERELY,

VALERIE

Hi Patrick--

 

I got the following info from the 1850 Nelson County census.  Anything in parentheses are my comments.

 

R. H. Anderson, 58, Farmer

Mary A., 49 (I know you show Robert H. m. Susan Kimbrough--suppose this is a second wife??)

Joseph A., 23

Robert, 20

Charles K., 17

Samuel W., 14

Mary, 12

 

Charles K. Anderson became a medical doctor--I believe at the University of VA Hospital in Ch'ville.  Died (I think) in 1889--or 1898.  Information is available on him at the Albemarle Co. Historical Society in Charlottesville.  I haven't really explored it too much as he's not in my direct line.  He married a Rodes/Rhodes and I can provide some info on that family in a day or two once I go through my records (which are piling up!!)

Children of Robert Anderson and Susan Kimbrough are:

Robert Rodes was the son of the Matthew Rodes.  His first wife was Elizabeth Duke, sister of Col. R.T.W. Duke.  He had two children by his first wife, Mary E. being one.  She married Dr. C. K. Anderson of Nelson Co.

 

(was able to copy and delete this from info a Rodes researcher sent.  Robert Rodes left a will in Albemarle Co. which mentions his daughter and son-in-law Anderson.)

I am searching for additional information on Nathan Crawford Anderson, born Nov 1, 1801. I am particularly interested in his son Robert H. Anderson. I would like to know if this is the same Robert H. that married Annie Ralston Berry. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Patrick,

I have visited your website and I must say you have spent alot of time on your research and I thank you very much for sharing.

I would like to know if you know anything further about the following Andersons or can put me in touch with someone that can give me further info. Nathan Crawford Anderson and his wife died when his sons were young and I can find no clue after their death. I strongly believe Nathan Crawford is my ancestor but I would really like proof.
