Notes for Thomas Anderson:

        Thomas' birth date has been corrected to reflect the fact that he does not appear as a land holder in the 1704 rent roll and may differ from the writings of William Pope Anderson. Anderson - Overton, A Continuation of Anderson Family Records (1936) & Early Descendants fo William Overton & Elizabeth Waters of Virginia & Allied Families, by William Pope Anderson, Cincinnati, Ohio, 1945.

        The St. Paul's parish vestry book survived from 1706 to the 1780's and there are precessionings in 1708 and 1711 and so on.  Robert Anderson. Sr, and Robert Anderson Jr. and Richard, David, John, Matthew and Thomas Anderson all appear in the 1708 precincts list all of them near each other between Crumps Creek and Tottopotomies Creek and Mechumps Creek to the north of current Mechanicsville, Virginia.

         In 1719 Gilbert Gibson was given a patent adjacent to Matthew and Thomas Anderson in New Kent County.  Thomas' association with Robert Anderson I derives from an analysis of precessioning records in St. Paul's Parish published in the book above.  Thomas was a church warden for St. Pauls Parish in the 1720's.

        Thomas Anderson's first wife died betwen 1725 and 1734.  Before 1734 he remarried to Mary and began experimenting with western lands. In 1733 Thomas was replaced as a church warden of St. Paul's parish and ordered to surrender the moneys of the parish to Thomas Merriweather. He continues as a vestryman until 1737 when he was removed as vestryman.  In 1739 a nephew Thomas Anderson replaces him as vestryman until 1754.  As can be seen in the records below he was dabbling in western lands during this period and even spent some time in jail in 1738.  By 1748 he was firmly entrenched on lands in Albemarle County.

I copied the following out of a will book at the Albemarle Co. Courthouse. Have no idea if it ties into my line but thought it might be helpful to people researching this family. It was difficult to read in parts but I think I got all the basics.

Editor's note: Mr. Richardson gave me his wife's name as Agnes Gannaway, however I have not yet seen adequate proof that his first wife was Agnes Gannaway.  Indeed perhaps he only had the wife Mary as found in Goochland records.

Hello Pat:

 

Pat here! Boy that could get confusing, but we won't let it.  Thank you so very much for the research notes on Elizabeth, and the directions to the two web sites. Having only read the notes at this time of night (10:47 PM) it really does clarify my question regarding Reynard &

Thomas.

 

Besides the connection through Thomas, what caught my eye immediately, was my connection to John Gannaway & John Gannaway II or Jr. as witnesses to Thomas' 10/25/1757 will.  John I is my 6th G grandfather; John II is my 5th G grandfather.  We carry the Gannaway line from Jacapo di Genoa & Leonora di Medici in 1544 to my grandmother, Mary Pearl (Gannaway) Black.

 

It would appear that Agnus (Gannaway) Anderson could be an elder sister (by four years) of John I, the daughter of Marmaduke & Henrietta

(Campmartin) Gannaway of London.

 

I am looking froward to going through the web sites.  Again, our best regards; we'll be in touch.  Please let us know if you would like any

information on the Gannaways, Woodsons, or any other early family groups (I'm sure we'll find a few more connections).

 

Pat

Wonder what proof there is that Susanna m John Williams in Goochland  Co VA

and died in Shelby Co KY?  It's possible she's the Susanna who married

Thomas Williams d. 1806 Goochland, though if so, she predeceased him.

 

Curious about source for Susanna having married John Williams. Can you

identify the Roger Williams who witnessed the will of Thomas Anderson in

1757 Albemarle?  Thomas ans Susannah Williams had a son, Roger, and he

probably had a brother, Roger as well.

 

I have some info from another Anderson researcher placing Susanna as a wife

of Thomas, but I cannot prove or disprove John or Thomas?

 

Is there a relationship between Thomas' father, Robert, and Reynard

Anderson?  Don't know if you've gone back to England to see if they are

related or not. They seem to move among some of the same circles, but that

could be geography, more than relationships. However, I've long come to the

conclusion, that while proximity doesn't make for DNA relationships, most

often one did not come to this country alone, without "kith and kin".

 

This is spurred by a 30 year search to find the grandparents of Charles

anderson Williams, s/o Samuel Williams and Lucy Lewis of Bedford/Campbell Co

VA , later Botetourt Co VA .  I think he may be Richard, Robert, Thomas,

Susanna m Thomas Williams, Samuel, Anderson, Charles Anderson Williams b.

1823 Campbell/Botetourt Co VA d. 1880 Botetourt m Minerva Jane Craddock, b.

1836 Lunenburg Co VA d. 29 Aug 1908, m. 10 Jan 1854 Montgomery Co VA.

 

Any thoughts?

Karen

Thanks

We think that Susanna married Thomas Williams and that Roger Williams was perhaps the oldest son, still in the area..  Among thier children, there is a Samuel Williams m. Susanna Ligon. Thier oldest son, named Anderson Williams (1767), is most likely the father of my Samuel Williams b. 1798/99 d. bet 1880/1900 in Botetourt, m Lucy Lewis in Campbell Co VA 1821. Thier son, Charles Anderson Williams was my GGGgrandfather (b 1823 d. 1880/1 Botetourt Co VA). 

 

Linda Stuffelbean has sent me a file which tends to document most of these things, though Thomas Williams didn't leave a lot of records to work with. While he and Susanna seem to have had a number of children, perhaps as many as 17, the records he left tend to be indicative of a man who couldn't handle his financial matters well.  He spent a good deal of time in Cumberland Co court, and on more than one occasion, Charles Williams and John Gannaway were the security for his debts. Charles moved on to Pittsylvania Co where he married twice. Samuel paid the tax for his father in 1786, indicating that Thomas may not have been able to pay for himself.  It's possible that Thomas married again in Cumberland Co in 1790 in Campbell Co VA, as the father of the bride more or less disowned his disobedient daughter.  It's not Thomas, of either Roger or Mathias, as it's possible a young girl married a very old man, with no money.   But that's pure speculation. I've seen her father's will, but not his estate settlement.  Perhaps finding any estate settlement for Thomas might answer the question, but I think it's possible that Roger was the son of Thomas, witnessing the will of his grandfather, Thomas Anderson. Thomas Williams is known to have had a brother Matthias from Cumberland Co records.   I can find nothing to support a marriage to a  John Williams, except on the web, and I suspect that's coming from your web site. Would like to find proof somewhere, to prove or disprove either Thomas or John as the husband of Susanna. IF it's Thomas, I  can document four of the kids and I believe Linda can document all of them, but I don't have all of her publication.

 

Thanks

Karen

>Patrick -

     Have I seen your webpage? Indeed, your webpage, which I found in early June, was what gave me link I needed to researching this family. <U>You have a great webpage</U>.  You have worked very hard on it and I have been recommending it to other Anderson researchers.

     I traced the ancestry of Mary Spencer (wife of Richard Anderson) back to the le Despencers and D'abbetots in the 11th century.  You probably have this information, but I'm including it in this email just in case.

     But I haven't got any further info on the Andersons.  I also would love to have more on Agnes Gannaway and Susanna Bowles(she married William Hughes, the son of Willam Hughes and Frances Anderson).  And the biggest mystery of them all is the da___ Cecelia Massie thing.  I can't take her line anywhere, cause nobody can decide who her parents were.  I've 'bout decided that it was D (probably David) and Lucretia Massie.  But when you are not sure of something, you hesitate to take it further.

     Now, I'm descended from this family on two sides.  From Frances Anderson and William Hughes and from Pouncey Anderson and Elizabeth Holland ( Her line goes way back to the Duttons and the Molyneux'. I think I'm going to be able to connect her to the deHolands eventually.)

      We should all really appreciate the research that has gone into your work, mainly because the Richards, Roberts and Williams are all so confusing.  I, for one, want to say thank you for sharing it.  And I also want to ask your permission to quote some of your notes in my pedigree, which I plan to print and share with my cousins.  I also would like to develop my own webpage, so I can get some more help with this. Your notes speak for themselves; they are not controversial and are very honest about the authenticity of the information. Please let me know if it's alright to use them.

[snip]

     Thanks for contacting me.  Let me know if you are interested in the Holland line. As I find out more on this family, I'll be glad to share with you and would hope that you would be obliged to do the same for me.

Hi Patrick

 

Saw your name on Anderson Gen Forum.  Am descendant of Thomas Anderson of Hanover---his daughter Elizabeth married John Woodson.  Their daughter Ann married Moore Lumpkin---do you have these descendants.

 

Some years ago, I saw reference to this Anderson Family and wondered how Thomas is connected toRobert and Richard et. al.  Was there a will, or is there something more like a land record, or is it proximity.  Also, I wonder about the name of his wife Agnes Gannaway.  There is a Gannaway family in Prince Edward that was also connected to Woodsons and Lumpkins.  What is the source for her surname.  Could she be connected to John of Prince Edward?

 

Also,  Elizabeth, daughter of David Anderson of Buckingham married 1) to Washington Walker and then to Moore  Jr. Lumpkin about 1809.  She moved to Tennessee.  He sister Susan married Michael Lancaster of Prince Edward.  Is there any connectino to Thomas Anderson.  Actually I was hoping to see if Elizabeth and Susan had any other siblings.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I just got this:

 

"I also have a copy of a book called "Woodsons and their Connections" by

Henry Morton Woodson 1915.  It was in the LDS Family History Library in Salt

Lake City.

 

On page 25 it says "Richard, born about 1662, at Curles in Henrico County,

married Anne Smith, daughter of Obadiah Smith.  In 1729 he made a deed to

James Hambleton, for land in Henrico, being part of a tract granted to his

father Robert Woodson in October 1704.  As he was about 67 years old at the

time of making this deed, he probably died within a few years thereafter."

 

Then he listed the children as such:

i.  Richard, Jr.4 (Richard3, Robert2, John1) born about 1690 in Henrico. 

Arriving at the age of young manhood, he located in Goochland where he

patented and otherwise acquired such immense tracts of land that he came to

be known as "Baron" Woodson, He later built his home "Poplar Hill" in Prince

Edward, Co.  He was married in about 1715 to Anne Madeleine Michaux,

daughter of Abraham Michaux and Susanne Rochette, Huguenots who had settled

search.   Their story is amazing.  There is still a church in Manikin Town,

VA with plaques with their names on it.)

 

ii. Obediah - born about 1712 in Henrico married in 1734 to Constance

Watkins, daughter of John Watkins "the Tray Maker."  Obediah held the rank

names wife Elizabeth and 5 children.  On Sep 20, 1740 Elizabeth Woodson

Morton of Henrico, made a deed to her children, Thomas Morton, John Morton,

Ann Morton, Judith Morton and nephew Samuel Morton, brother to Joseph

Edmond Goode.

 

v.  Judith born about 1703 in Henrico, was married about 1722 to Jacob

Michaux son of Abraham Michaux & Susanne Rochette, Huguenots of Manikin Town

1755    Thomas Anderson Jr and Sarah of Lunenburgh sell land in Cumberland

__________________________________

        These references to Thomas as Thomas Anderson Junior indicates that his fathers name was likely Thomas and the reference to lands in Cumberland associate him with the children of Thomas Anderson and Agnes Gannaway. Goochland County records also refer to Thomas Anderson Jr.

        After 1750 Thomas Anderson owned a plantation on the North side of the Roanoke River, on the other side was James Mitchell.  Thomas' land bordered on Henry Sage near Eastland's Creek.  During this period he also served as a overseer (as appears in the Mecklenburg tax rolls) for the Bluestone Creek estates of William Byrd II (Treasurer of the Colony of Virginia).  William Byrd was granted those lands in the 1730's as payment for his personal financing and leadership of the survey of the Virginia and North Carolina Border in 1728.  Virginia Historical publications have reprinted his report of that expedition.  This places Thomas Anderson in Lunenburg County. Thomas Anderson was present at the court formation of both Lunenburg County and Mecklenburg County. 

        Later James Mitchell would sell his land to Edmund Taylor from Caroline and Orange County, Virginia.  Thomas Anderson sold the properties at the river bank concerned with the ferry across the Roanoke to Taylor in 1762.  It would appear that in the period 1742 to 1760 Thomas was concentrating on improvements to the Colonial Post Road where it past through Virginia.  Both the bridges he and his father, built over the Chicahominy and Appomatox Rivers and this Ferry over the Roanoake were critical improvements to this post road.    This ferry was later known as Taylor's Ferry and was a critical point of operations during the revolutionary war, although no battle took place there.  All supplies and troops to the southern army passed here. Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson ordered that no Virginia wagons were to cross the Roanoke River south of Taylor's ferry for fear that they would not be returned. Horses for the army were pastured here and a magazine was built for the accumulation of military stores.  This magazine continued to be used as a barn through the post Civil War era and it appears to have been located on Thomas Anderson's property. When General Gates army marched south under instructions from George Washington after the disasters at Charleston and Savannah, Gates found that the ferry boats across the Roanoke could not carry his 12 pound cannon, so these were left and built into the defenses of Taylor's Ferry.  Examination of British Army corresondence between Cornwallis and Tarleton reveals that they debated the benefit of attacking Taylor's Ferry, but considered it too well defended by the Mecklenburg militia, at times under the command of Major James Anderson (Thomas' son) to risk the action.

        This ferry is flooded today by Bugg's Island Lake.  The magazine would be located upon the ridge overlooking this ferry.  The road to the ferry (currently Va Route 705) passes out of Boydtown, Virginia directly south from the old Randolph Macon College Building.  This route was the main road North South in the period 1760 to 1830, and was supplanted in this roll only after this period with the increasing influence of the Skipwith family and the introduction of the railroad.

        Thomas Anderson's will is filed in Mecklenburg County in Will Book 1, on page 331.  It is dated 12/04/1779 and recorded 05/08/1780.  He names his wife Sarah Anderson, children Frances Taylor, Sarah Jones, James Anderson, Martha Jones, Susanna Lewis, Mary Lewis, Thomas Anderson, Anne Anderson, Lucy Anderson, Henrietta Maria Anderson, son-in-law William Taylor.  Evidence suggests that William Taylor had married Elizabeth Anderson a daughter of Thomas, but she was deceased prior to 1779.

Dear Patrick,

     I am still amazed by your depth of knowledge of the Andersons of Virginia.  I think you have presented a convincing picture of my Thomas Anderson ancestor and appreciate you sending it on.

     For accuracy of your information, I do not own the diary of my great-great grandfather William Henry Holcombe, MD (b. May 29, 1825, d. Nov. 29, 1893).  The diary is a permanent part of the Southern Historical Collection, Manuscript # 1113,  CB #3926, Wilson Library,  The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3926.  A typed copy of the nearly 250 pages can be obtained on request.  Your letter led me to reread some of the diary, particularly the autobiography part written in 1892, and it was so enjoyable to read I thought I would share some of it with you.

     "At the first roll of the revolutionary drum in 1775, the sons of the soldiers of Culloden rushed into the rebel army.  My grandfather, Philemon Holcombe, about 18 years of age at that time, ran away from Hampton Sidney College, without the knowledge or consent of  parents or faculty and enlisted for the war.  He served the whole eight years of that momentous struggle without wavering a moment in his fidelity to the cause.  He shared all its hardships and anxieties, its defeats and its triumphs.

     "He was with Gates and Greene in their Carolina campaigns.  He fought at Guilford Courthouse side by side with Capt. Thomas Watts whose grand-daughter was married to one of his grandsons 60 years afterward.  He was in Gen. Harry Lee's Light Horse at Brandywine and Germantown.  He rose from the ranks to the position of Major and was promoted to a Colonelcy after serving as aid-de-camp to Gen. Lafayette at the siege of Yorktown.  He was present when the noble Frenchman scornfully refused to open or even receive a special letter addressed to him by the traitor Benedict Arnold, and he saw Lord Cornwallis surrender his sword, an event which virtually closed the struggle.

     "He used to tell how Lafayette once tried to utilize the turkey buzzard as an article of food, when the comissary department was reduced to desperation - "I had no absurd antipathy to the American Turkey,"he said.  "I put him fairly on his merits - I roasted him, I baked him, I stewed him, I fried him, but confidentially - he is no good!"

     "When Lafayette re-visited America in 1824 and was honored with ovations, such as only Washington could have received, throughout the length and breadth of the land, my grandfather, then 67 years of age, left his quiet farm and took his eldest daughter Mrs. Sarah Ambler and his youngest son, then quite a lad, to call upon him at Richmond.  They were cordially received by the illustrious visitor; the young Beverly Lafayette Holcombe was duly presented, and General Lafayette complimented this party by gracefully leading out Mrs. Ambler for the first dance at the grand ball given in his honor.  My grandfather was so delighted with his old compatriot in arms, that he followed him all the way to New York, no easy matter in those days of slow and difficult travel, and waved his last adieus to him as the vessel which bore the nation's guest back to France drifted away from the Battery.

     When the war was over Col. Holcombe devoted himself successfully to agricultural pursuits, and was particularly interested in the rearing and improvement of blooded stock.  His fine horses were raced upon many a race track in eastern Virginia, such being the fashion among the first gentlemen of that day.  Although horse-racing, card-playing and brandy drinking were the habits, we would now say the vice of the best society of the period.  My grandfather never committed excesses of any kind.  No persuasions could induce him, to the day of his death at the age of 77 to deviate from his old army custom of taking three small glasses of "grog" every day, one just before each meal.

     One fine day somewhere in the eighties of the last century young Col. Philemon Holcombe mounted his finest charger and rode away to a neighboring county, intending to pay his addresses to a certain young lady with whom he had formed a very pleasant acquaintance.  There he met another young lady visiting the one he went especially to see, who proved more fascinating than her hostess and carried off the prize - thus unknowingly constituting herself my grandmother.

     This lady, Lucy Maria Anderson, was the medium through whom the royal blood of the House of Hapsburg is said to flow in our veins.  Somewhere in the first third of the last century a distinguished couple exiled from Austria located at Charles City, Va., Baron Hardimann and his beautiful and accomplished wife, Henriette Marie, a niece of Maria Theresa, Empress of Austria and cousin of the ill-fated Marie Antoinette of France.  The Baron had been involved in some revolutionary attempt, and the punishment of death was commuted to banishment to America for life.

 

[Editors Note: Date:     11/30/99 9:35:36 PM Eastern Standard Time; From: black@globe.com (Terri Black) informant advises that the information above connecting the Hardiman family with the Hapsburgs is incorrect and that more accurate infomation can be found on The Poythress family wonderful web site, with a chapter dedicated to the Hardyman's & their early roots in America, all solidly documented.

http://www1.minn.net/~atims/hardyman.html ]

 

     "A daughter of this couple named after her mother but anglicized to Henrietta Maria married a Capt. Clarke of the British Navy.  A daughter of these parties named Henrietta Elizabeth, was married to Beverly Anderson[editors note: References in a descendants diary refer to him as "Beverly" Anderson.  I have heretofore assigned him that middle name, but to date have found no other record substantiating it. All VA records of note refer to him as Thomas.], whose name stands upon the old records as "gentleman and landholder."  Their daughter, Lucy Maria, became the bride of my grandfather.  The portrait of Henriette Marie Hardimann, a fully detailed account of the family descent in all its branches written by my aunt, Mrs. Sarah Ambler, and many valuable letters and documents were destroyed by fire at the burning of Columbia.  They were in the possession of Mrs. Lucy Holcombe Pickens the wife of the Governor of South Carolina at that time and a grand-daughter of Philemon and Lucy Maria Holcombe.

     "My grandmother Holcombe was a lady of fine physique and strongly marked character.  She was a grand old-fashioned Virginia housekeeper and that means a great deal to those acquainted with the social customs and immense hospitalities of that period.  She was a superb manager of her servants, and we may add, sotto voce, of her husband.  She was such a srict disciplinarian that she is said to have horse-whipped one of her sons for some act of disobedience, when he was eighteen years of age.  It is through her side of the house that the Rev. Dr. Samuel Anderson of St. Louis was our cousin.  He was breakfasting with me in New Orleans when we received the terrible news of President Lincoln's assassination, and we agreed in the opinion that it would prove a great calamity to the Southern people.  Grand-nephews of my grandmother were also Col. Beverly Jones (the Beverly from his grandfather Beverly Anderson) who was killed in command of an Alabama regiment, and his brother James Alfred Jones of Richmond, one of the most distinguished lawyers in Virginia.

     My grandfather was independent and his wife was rich, so they lived in convivial, hospitable style.  When one fortune was frittered away, Mrs. Holcombe received another by the will of a bachelor brother.  The old colonel was exceedingly popular and highly respected.  Some warm friends once wished to have him nominated for Congress, but he declined the proposed honor, saying that he had always been regarded by his friends and neighbors as an honorable, respectable man, but if he entered the political arena, it would soon be discovered that he was one of the greatest rascals in the state, a satire upon the bitter political spirit which prevailed in what we call "the good old times."

 

Hope you enjoyed this!                                               Sincerely, Warwick Aiken

Notes for Sarah Clark:

        Sarah Clark, the daughter of James Clark and Henritta Maria Hardyman.   Consider the will of Richard Clarke of Raleigh Parish, Amelia County written on August 29, 1748 and probated January 23, 1752 and filed on page 75 of Will Book One of Amelia County.  In it he appoints Francis Anderson as one of three executors.  He also names Frances Hardeman Clark the daughter of his brother James Clark in the will.  These points are significant because this is the sister in the Clark family of Sarah Clark the wife of Thomas Anderson of Mecklenburg County.  Thomas Anderson was born in New Kent County Virginia and it is somewhere on the Goochland/Amelia border that he met and married his wife Sarah Clark.

Notes for Major James Anderson:

       James Anderson of Mecklenburg County, Captain in the Virginia Militia of the Revolutionary War. He was the commander of one of the three militia companys whose entrance into Williamsburg precipitated the escape of Lord Dunmore to Norfolk.  This incident is known as the "Gunpowder Incident" to any visitor to colonial Williamsburg in Virginia where the story is repeatedly told still today.  Patrick Henry rabid orator and member of the house of burgesses had called the militia into Williamsburg to prevent Lord Dunmore from abscounding with the gunpowder in the city magazine.

       James was the commander that threw up the earthwork barracade at Great Bridge VA which became the scene of the first Virginia battle of the Revolution. The British attacked the earthwork which had barricaded them into Norfolk and where gunned down efficiently for their trouble.

       Later as Major James Anderson he was in the rotation of commanders at Taylors Ferry and in command of the boats that ferried across the Roanoke River during the Revolutionary War. When instructed by General Lafayette's Quatermaster General to gather all the boats together for security reasons responded that there were only 13 boats on the Roanoake, that they were all in trustworthy hands and that consolidating them would place such a hardship on the economy of the region that it could not be accepted.

 

James had a first wife whom we have not identified. The best source on him is:

Thanks for the sorting of Charleses.  What a mess.  I have ordered the indexes of Cumberland deeds.   I noticed a Lawrence Anderson will in Cumberland but did not copy it.  I found no Bartalot will.  I will keep you posted.  I wonder where the church parish records are?  Which parish?   It is nice to have Mary Elizabeth's siblings.  There is no Gideon in will.  I found out that Frances married Thomas Redd in IGI.   Let me know if it sourts out.

Pat:

Thank you sincerely for the Anderson notes. The Thomas Anderson clan has been associated with my Roger Williams bunch in many records. I finally found a thread on p.586 of Genealogies of Virginia Families regarding James Cunningham b. 1767 and Frances Redd.

Paragraph 5:  "His widow (that is - of James Cunningham), Frances, was born 9 Oct. 1771, eldest of the children of Capt. Thomas Redd by his third wife, Frances Anderson, daughter of Charles and Elizabeth (Chambers) Anderson, The parents of Charles Anderson were Thomas (who d. 1752 in Albermarle CO.) and Elizabeth Anderson. The mother of Elizabeth Chanbers was Elizabeth, daughter of Roger Williams, son of Roger Williams who died Old Rappahannock Co., in 1677. On 27 April 1817, Mrs. Frances (Redd) Cunningham m. Thomas Baytop Scott. Thereafter she was called "Aunt Scott" by her numerous nephews and nieces. Mr. Scott died intestate about 1827. The Family Bible says that she died 18 Jan. 1843, but on a tombstone erected in her memory in 1855, the inscription says she "died in 1843, age 71 yrs., 3 Mos., 11 days." The next paragraph contains the children of James and Frances.

 

As you see my interest is in the Williams, and if you run across anything that will be helpful, I would appreciate it. Thank you again.

Dear Patrick,

        As you can see from the attached gedcom file, I am a descendent of James Anderson, the son of Thomas of Albemarle and Agnes Gannaway.  Our family still owns about a thousand acres of James and Charles+'s land, including that at one time owned by Peter Francisco. 

        The house James built before 1750 is still lived in and I have a large number of old documents stored there.  I have sifted through them for about six months now while recovering from an accident.  I would appreciate your educating me on what evidence you would like to see to place Sarah Weldon Anderson as the daughter of Francis Anderson, to sort out the wives of James and James, Jr., and to integrate the "Scott's Anderson" connection.  The father of Betty Anderson, Robert BakerertBaker, is known for the Kentucky long rifle, and her grandfather, John Thompson is the famous Presbyterian Minister who arranged financial assistance for Samuel Davies education. Andersons kept records from the meeting house which became Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1754 with Samuel Davies as its first pastor.  An Anderson relative was clerk of the session from 1754 to 1954 when my grandfather Francis Sidney Anderson resigned. 

        Thanking you so much for all you have done for Anderson genealogy and hoping to meet you in person and take you out to dinner.  Call anytime at 540-785-4226, my home in Fredericksburg, VA.

 

I am sincerely,

________________________________

The information I have on the early Anderson Family came from a paper I found on microfilm at the Viginia State Library titled "The Anderson Papers" by a Mrs. R. M. Anderson of Chatham, Va. (Pittsylvania County).  The material was written about 1950. Her husband was decended from Jesse Anderson, son of James Anderson and June Ann Moore.  She was foggy on some things and brushed over.

She knew that my great grandmother, Nancy Anderson had married a Price, and mentioned he was a horse trader from Montgomery Co., Va., but in Montgomery Co. he was better known as a horse thief.  (just joking but he did sell a piece of land in Mont. Co. to three diffent

parties and he was hauled into court over it at an old age).

 

I was able to trace back to James Anderson married to June Ann Moore, and died in Franklin County, Va. in 1822. This James was the son of James and Betty of Cumberland Co., Va. according to Mrs. Anderson's paper.   I have a note, that I obtained from some forgotten place during the last 20 years, that states Betty's name was Sarah Elizabeth Baker.  I have no real proof of this.  Maybe someone

out there can make a connection.

 

[snip of an error]

 

My line back to James Anderson of Franklin County is as follows, (the family kept moving west until I came along):

 

Donald Wayne Price b. 1940 Roanoke, Va.

James Otho Price b. 1919 Roanoke, Va., d. 1998 Mechanicsville, Va.

Ferdinand Webster Price b. 1892 Montgomery Co., Va.,d. 1949 Roanoke, Va.

Nancy Jane Anderson b. 1854 Franklin Co., Va., d. 1922 Montgomery Co., Va.

James B. Anderson b. about 1820 Franklin Co., Va., d. ? Pulaski Co., Va.

Jesse Anderson b. about 1785 ?, d. 1860 Franklin Co., Va.

James Anderson b. ? Cumberland Co., Va., d. 1821 Franklin Co., Va.

 

I now live in Mechanicsville, Va. (just outside of Richmond). My parents moved to Richmond during WWII and stayed after my father returned from overseas.

 

Sincerely,

 

Donald Price

I am seeking to discover my Anderson ancestors in Virginia. The earliest Anderson that I have is William 1734-1810, married Fanney___? William's son was Richard, 1761-1835. I wonder if Thomas Anderson, c. 1661-1693 to 1758, the child of Robert Anderson and Cecelia Massie, could be William's father? Richard's son Thomas, b. June 16, 1789 d 1857 married Chloe Glascock in Pittsylvania Co VA about 1815. Ring any bells? Is the lineage like this:

1 Richard Anderson b. 1585 London England

2 Richard Anderson Jr., 1619-1656

3 Robert Anderson 1640-1716

4 Thomas Anderson c, 1661-1758

5 William Anderson 1734-1810

6 Richard Anderson 1761-1835, m. Frances

Children Betsy, William, Thomas, Ann, and

John.

Notes for Frances Anderson:

        Frances Anderson married Joseph Taylor, later owner of the Taylor Ferry.  The Taylor family was descended from James Taylor (    -1698) from Carlisle, England.  James had four daughters, a son Edmund Taylor, a son James Taylor (and Martha Thompson) and a son John Taylor who married Catherine Pendleton.  John Taylor had sons Edmund, William and Joseph (et al). Edmund Taylor married Ann Lewis the daughter of Charles Lewis of "The Byrd" a member of the "Warner Hall" Lewis'.  John Taylor's family bible surveved until 1870 in Texas.  From this we know that William Taylor married an Elizabeth Anderson, apparently the deceased sister of Frances as William Taylor is named as a son-in-law in her father's will.

Patrick, My sister and me are trying to find some written documents that prove that

Mary Ann Taylor is the daughter of Joseph Taylor and Frances Anderson.  I have a

McClure book put out by Mrs. Ruth (Woten) Rumbaugh she is the great, great, great

granddaughter of Mary Ann Taylor.  Her line

Ruth Woten married Russell Rumbaugh

Alexander Woten married Edna V. Hartzog

James I. Hartzog married Delana Rosabell McClure

James N. McClure married Lucinda Rumbaugh

William Rumbaugh married Anna Aldridge

Samuel Aldridge married Mary Ann Taylor

Mrs. Rumbaugh research this line for over 40 years until her death.  In her McClure

book she list Samuel Aldridge and Mary Ann Taylor as the grandparents of Lucinda.

I have information on everyone from William Rumbaugh and Anna Aldridge upward and can document what I have or tell you where I got it.

Hi Pat,

 

Teb forwarded me a copy of your article entitled "Ancestors of Anderson Taylor".

 

I assume that this is your family line and you have done much more extensive research than I have done on this line.

 

Anderson's parents were William Taylor and Elizabeth Anderson.  Do you have a date or place of death for William Taylor?  If so, what is the documentary source of this date?

 

You give a date of death for Anderson Taylor of 1808.  I have December 26, 1854 which is the date of death that you attribute to Anderson's brother, William.  What is your documentary source of each of these brothers' dates of death?  Where did they each die?

 

My source of information on William Taylor, Sr., son of John Taylor and Catherine Pendleton, is the Taylor bible transcribed by Joe Taylor in 1870 from the bible in the possession of Mary Blackwell that was published in the William & Mary Quarterly, Vol. 12, 1903-1904, Series I.  It says that William Taylor was born on December 19, 1735.  It also says that his sister, Elizabeth was born on July 9, 1735.  This is a physical impossibility.  You say that William's birth date was December 19, 1737.  This would resolve the conflict.  What is your documentary source for the December 19, 1737 date?

Hi,

  My name is Andy Davis and I am descended from Thomas Anderson through his daughter Susannah. She was married to James Lewis. Do you have anything on the parentage of Thomas? Since his middle name was Beverly I can't help but think there might have been a relation to the Beverly family of VA. Susannah died about 1826. I thought she died in Granville County but I saw something on the Anderson's that said she died in Wake County NC. I saw the grave of her sister Frances last October when I was in Vance County NC.

Would love to hear from you.

Pat,

  I was referred to your web page for information on some Andersons that married Lewises.  Your "Descendants of Thomas Beverly Anderson" page includes my 2nd GGM, Susanna Anderson (b. Abt. 1757), who married James Lewis (b. August 28, 1755).  My search primarily concerns identifying the wife of their son William (b. December 16, 1780 in Granville County, NC).

  The will of James Lewis contains some very special restrictions that prevent William from ever having control of his portion of James's estate, while ensuring that William and his family would always have a place to live and "be maintained".  For a long time I thought this provision may have indicated that William was incompetent; however, I have since learned that this is a technique of writing a will when the child married someone against the parents' wishes.  A friend and family connection who still lives in Granville County told me that word-of-mouth passed down through the family is that William married his cousin (who may have been a "Lucy") against his parents' wishes.

  I have searched every branch of this complicated family trying to find a possible wife for William.  From your "Thomas Beverly Anderson" page, I see that Mary Anderson (b. Abt. 1758) married Charles Lewis (b. August 2, 1760).  Charles Lewis was a brother of James Lewis; therefore, children of James would be 1st cousins of children of Charles.  Also, Charles and James married sisters (Mary and Susanna Anderson).  Your page shows that Charles and Mary had children including Lucy A. Lewis and it shows that Lucy married (?) Seawell.  Is it possible that "(?) Seawell" could actually have been William Lewis?  Since Lucy and William were 1st cousins, that may be the reason for the very restrictive wording in James's will.

  Please let me know if you can help with my dilemma or if you can suggest any way to resolve it.  I have a very extensive family tree and I am willing to share the entire tree or any information from it.  Let me know if you want it in GEDCOM format.

  Your web page lists the children of Susanna Anderson and James Lewis as Elizabeth, Sarah, Susanna, Witham and James.  The fourth child should be "William" (my 2nd GGF) rather than "Witham" - the date of birth is correct.  All references I have seen to this family before list only four children.  This is the first time I have seen "Susanna" as the third child.

In your message to me dated 9 Sep 1999 12:54:55 EDT, you said that you

would be interested in details of the family of William Lewis, b. 16 Dec

1780, (my 2nd GGF). William's father, James Lewis, married Susanna

Anderson on June 30, 1774. I will attach a GEDCOM of my family tree - I

waited until now because I have been adding and checking information, and

inserting source data.

I'm sure that I will never be through with this task, but the

Dear Patrick,

 

I don't know if you are interested in what is printed in The History of Fayette County Tennessee 1986 or not, but I thought I'd sent it just in case. Two sections of interest would be the (1) history of La Grange, TN and that of (2) Revolutionary War Veterans.  They are both rather long, so I have copied the parts that connect to your family.

 

(1) "La Grange  was laid out on the southern end of land entry #712 which contained 274 acres and was surveyed in 1822 for the heirs of Wm. Rains."

 

"The first documented school was a Female Private Seminary advertised in the 10 Oct. 1834 issue of the Tipton Co. newspaper.....

Drawing and painting will be supervised by Mrs. Anderson.  Trustees for this school were Thomas Booth, George H. Wyatt, John Anderson, Haywood Johnson and Charles Michie."

 

"The most successful educational facility, however, ever built in the town was the La Grange Female College, founded about 1854.  Completed in 1865, containing about 25 rooms, it was built at a cost of $27,000 on a lot known as the Holcombe lots bought by John Hunt from Thomas Booth and deeded in 1858 to the college for $ 3000 by Charles W. Hunt."

 

(2) Major James Philemon Holcombe, Jr., born 21 Dec 1762 in Prince Edward Co., VA, married first Lucy Maria Anderson, moved to Fayette Co., TN in May 1829 where he live until his death here on 4 Nov 1834 at age 72.  His portrait and war record appeared in book, Leaves from a Family Album, publ. 1975 by Jane Judge Greer, Waco, TX., a copy of which she donated to the Somerville, TN library.  Major Holcombe first lived in La Grange near his son-in-law George Hubbard Wyatt.  He married again about 1831, a Fayette County widow with children.....  Major Holcombe moved from La Grange to the area northwest of Somerville to live with another son-in-law, Thomas Watkins, around what is now the Glade Springs area of District 4 and where he probably died and was buried.  Beverly Lafayette Holcombe, of La Grange, his son, married Eugenia Dorothea Vaughn Hunt, dau. of John Hunt.  They were the parents of Lucy Holcombe Pickens, the titian haired beauty often called "the uncrowned queen of the Confederacy".  Major Philemon Homcombe, Jr.'s obituary appeared in the Randolph Recorder paper on 14 Nov, 1834.  He was the son of Philemon, SR., grandson of John Holcombe, and great-grandson of William Holcombe, one of four brothers who come to the U.S. in the 1600's.  Major Holcombe had, in addition the Beverly Lafayette, nine other children.  The ones involved with Fayette County were dau., Frances A.,, who married Thomas Watkins, and dau., Amanda Malvina, who married Geo. H. Wyatt."

 

This does add names, and even different spelling of some names which I have noted in color.  We have other relatives buried at the La Grange cemetery and we (my daughter and I) have been wanting to check and verify some dates there, so when we do we will look for Lucy Maria's gravesite.

Patrick,

     Thank you very much for the information on Thomas and Sarah Anderson.  I could not get the WordPerfect file to open very well, with a lot of gibberish coming through on my Windows Notepad program, which was all that I had that would open it.  I have Microsoft Word and also Family Tree Maker which seems to be able to open GEDCOM files. If you could send the GEDCOM file, I would be grateful. 

   

     I am amazed by how much information you have on the Andersons.  I will try to add a little as best I can.  I have four sources making reference to Lucy Maria Anderson Holcombe and her father Thomas Anderson.  Two make reference to Beverly Anderson, although I believe my great-great grandfather, William Henry Holcombe, got Beverly and Thomas confused.  I thought you might like to see the information on Lucy and Phil Holcombe, who were fairly colorful characters.

 

     The most recent reference I have is "The Holcombes, Nation Builders." by Hannah Elizabeth Weir McPherson, privately printed 1947, over 1,300 page and well written.  On page 736 is the following: "Major Philemon Holcombe, III met in 1784 and married Dec. 13, 1784, Lucy Maria "Frances" ANDERSON, b. Mecklenburg Co., Va. 1765, d. 183_ in Fayette Co., Tenn., dau. of Thomas "gentleman" of Mecklenburg Co., Va. and wife Sarah CLARK, who was dau. of Capt. James CLARK, of the English Navy, and wife, Henrietta Maria HARDEMAN, b. Paris, France about 1730, dau. of John HARDEMAN and wife, Henrietta Maria Taylor, son of Baron Von HARDEMAN, a Russian officer of State, had an estate on James River in Charles City Co., Va.."

     "Henrietta Maria Taylor was the daughter of John of  Flowendraj, said to have been maid of honor at the Court of Austria and of the royal House of Hapsburg, and related to Marie Antoinette, Queen of France."

     "Thomas ANDERSON was son of Beverley and Henrietta Elizabeth CLARK." (Spelling is exactly as written)

     "There was organized in Washington, D.C. a chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, which was named the "Lucy Holcombe Chapter" in honor of Lucy Maria ANDERSON, wife of Maj. Philemon Holcombe."

 

     A second reference is "Lucy Holcombe of Virginia, A Sketch Prepared for the Lucy Holcombe Chapter, D.A.R.", by John Walker Holcombe, dated Nov. 21, 1916, in the "City of Washington". Not all of it will fit but here are the highlights:

"LUCY HOLCOMBE was a maid and matron of our Revolutionary period, a type of the patriotic women of that time who lived amid scenes of the marching and maneuvering of opposing armies.  She was born in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, about 1765, daughter of Thomas Anderson ("Gentleman" in the old records) and was named Lucy Maria, deriving the second name from a great-grandmother, Henrietta Maria, formerly a maid of honor at the Court of Austria and related by blood to the imperial family, who with her husband, Baron Hardeman, had migrated to Virginia and settled in Charles City County."

     "Lucy Maria probably made the acquaintance of her future husband during the passage of General Greene's forces through her neighborhood on the way to and returning from the Battle of Guilford Court House, North Carolina, fought March 15, 1781. This was the young Philemon Holcombe, Jr., who was already a Major in the second regiment of General Lawson's brigade, though not yet nineteen years of age, and in the important battle mentioned was attached to the cavalry command of Col. William Washington.  Later he served under Baron Von Steuben and was with LaFayette (as an aide-de-camp) at Yorktown, witnessing the surrender of Lord Cornwallis.  He was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel in the War of 1812, but had already long been known as Colonel Holcombe of Virginia. His own narrative of his military career is preserved in the files of the Pension Office at Washington (Survivor's File No. 4399). (Here follows accounts of other Holcombes in the Rev. War.)

        "Philemon and Lucy were married in the last year of the War and made their home in the former's native county of Prince Edward till 1790, when they removed to their estate called "The Oaks" in Amelia County.  There Mrs. Holcombe lived the laborious life of the mistress of a large plantation.  She was a woman of great force of character, which she exercised in bringing up and training a family of ten children, all but two of whom lived to mature years (an unusual proportion in those days), and in the management of her many servants.  Her house-keeping was of the old-fashioned lavish kind and her hospitalities famous, the Holcombe house being a gathering place for her

husband's companions in arms and all Revolutionary veterans.  It is said the Colonel's large and easy benevolence was often imposed upon by unworthy pretenders.  Mrs. Holcombe took some share in her husband's farming operations, being reputed indeed the better manager of the two, and was no doubt interested in their fine horses, one of which, called "Topgallant" was celebrated on the race tracks of eastern Virginia.

        "Finally, their fortunes being much reduced by liberal living and the unscientific farming of that period, which exhausted the soil with successive crops of tobacco, the old couple, with the courage of youth, removed, along with their youngest son, two daughters and their husbands, to the rich cotton lands of Western Tennessee, and settled in Fayette County in 1829, where after a few years they died.  More than seventy years afterward an aged granddaughter said, "I perfectly remember my grandmother, Lucy Anderson Holcombe.  She was a pretty old lady, of medium size with iron-gray hair, and used to be seen with her key basket on her arm, her hands generally slipped

in the pockets of her skirt, everywhere directing the work of the servants. She petted especially her little namesake, my sister Lucy, saying, 'There never was a sweeter child.' "  One of her daughters-in-law wrote that she was in many respects the finest woman she ever knew."

     There follows brief biographies of their children, Thomas Anderson Holcombe, Philemon H.W. Holcombe, William James Holcombe (my ancestor), Beverly LaFayette Holcombe, Sarah Taylor Holcombe (Ambler), and Martha Maria Holcombe (Robertson). "In some respects the most interesting of this Revolutionary dame's descendants was her granddaughter and namesake, Lucy Holcombe, daughter of Beverly, born in Tennessee in 1832, who became the wife of Colonel Francis Pickens, a Senator from South Carolina and Minister of the United States to Russia.  Noted for beauty and cleverness, she received marked attentions at the Imperial Court of St. Petersburg.  The Czar and Czarina presented several magnificent diamond pieces to her infant daughter born at St. Petersburg, who was christened Eugenia, but was known through life by the Russian pet name "Douschka".  Colonel Pickens was elected Governor of his state at the breaking out of the (Civil) War, and his wofe became known as "Lady Lucy" to the Chivalry of the South.  Her vignette adorns a certain hundred dollar bill

(and a one dollar bill) of the Confederacy.  After the War she was for many years a Regent of Mount Vernon, till her death in 1899."

     I think that this is enough for one letter.  I will write you soon about another Holcombe history-genealogy book, and about my

great-greatgrandfather's diaries.

Dear Patrick,

     I am still amazed by your depth of knowledge of the Andersons of Virginia.  I think you have presented a convincing picture of my Thomas Anderson ancestor and appreciate you sending it on.

     For accuracy of your information, I do not own the diary of my great-great grandfather William Henry Holcombe, MD (b. May 29, 1825, d. Nov. 29, 1893).  The diary is a permanent part of the Southern Historical Collection, Manuscript # 1113,  CB #3926, Wilson Library,  The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC 27599-3926.  A typed copy of the nearly 250 pages can be obtained on request.  Your letter led me to reread some of the diary, particularly the autobiography part written in 1892, and it was so enjoyable to read I thought I would share some of it with you.

     "At the first roll of the revolutionary drum in 1775, the sons of the soldiers of Culloden rushed into the rebel army.  My grandfather, Philemon Holcombe, about 18 years of age at that time, ran away from Hampton Sidney College, without the knowledge or consent of  parents or faculty and enlisted for the war.  He served the whole eight years of that momentous struggle without wavering a moment in his fidelity to the cause.  He shared all its hardships and anxieties, its defeats and its triumphs.

     "He was with Gates and Greene in their Carolina campaigns.  He fought at Guilford Courthouse side by side with Capt. Thomas Watts whose grand-daughter was married to one of his grandsons 60 years afterward.  He was in Gen. Harry Lee's Light Horse at Brandywine and Germantown.  He rose from the ranks to the position of Major and was promoted to a Colonelcy after serving as aid-de-camp to Gen. Lafayette at the siege of Yorktown.  He was present when the noble Frenchman scornfully refused to open or even receive a special letter addressed to him by the traitor Benedict Arnold, and he saw Lord Cornwallis surrender his sword, an event which virtually closed the struggle.

     "He used to tell how Lafayette once tried to utilize the turkey buzzard as an article of food, when the comissary department was reduced to desperation - "I had no absurd antipathy to the American Turkey,"he said.  "I put him fairly on his merits - I roasted him, I baked him, I stewed him, I fried him, but confidentially - he is no good!"

     "When Lafayette re-visited America in 1824 and was honored with ovations, such as only Washington could have received, throughout the length and breadth of the land, my grandfather, then 67 years of age, left his quiet farm and took his eldest daughter Mrs. Sarah Ambler and his youngest son, then quite a lad, to call upon him at Richmond.  They were cordially received by the illustrious visitor; the young Beverly Lafayette Holcombe was duly presented, and General Lafayette complimented this party by gracefully leading out Mrs. Ambler for the first dance at the grand ball given in his honor.  My grandfather was so delighted with his old compatriot in arms, that he followed him all the way to New York, no easy matter in those days of slow and difficult travel, and waved his last adieus to him as the vessel which bore the nation's guest back to France drifted away from the Battery.

     When the war was over Col. Holcombe devoted himself successfully to agricultural pursuits, and was particularly interested in the rearing and improvement of blooded stock.  His fine horses were raced upon many a race track in eastern Virginia, such being the fashion among the first gentlemen of that day.  Although horse-racing, card-playing and brandy drinking were the habits, we would now say the vice of the best society of the period.  My grandfather never committed excesses of any kind.  No persuasions could induce him, to the day of his death at the age of 77 to deviate from his old army custom of taking three small glasses of "grog" every day, one just before each meal.

     One fine day somewhere in the eighties of the last century young Col. Philemon Holcombe mounted his finest charger and rode away to a neighboring county, intending to pay his addresses to a certain young lady with whom he had formed a very pleasant acquaintance.  There he met another young lady visiting the one he went especially to see, who proved more fascinating than her hostess and carried off the prize - thus unknowingly constituting herself my grandmother.

     This lady, Lucy Maria Anderson, was the medium through whom the royal blood of the House of Hapsburg is said to flow in our veins.  Somewhere in the first third of the last century a distinguished couple exiled from Austria located at Charles City, Va., Baron Hardimann and his beautiful and accomplished wife, Henriette Marie, a niece of Maria Theresa, Empress of Austria and cousin of the ill-fated Marie Antoinette of France.  The Baron had been involved in some revolutionary attempt, and the punishment of death was commuted to banishment to America for life.

     "A daughter of this couple named after her mother but anglicized to Henrietta Maria married a Capt. Clarke of the British Navy.  A daughter of these parties named Henrietta Elizabeth, was married to Beverly Anderson, whose name stands upon the old records as "gentleman and landholder."  Their daughter, Lucy Maria, became the bride of my grandfather.  The portrait of Henriette Marie Hardimann, a fully detailed account of the family descent in all its branches written by my aunt, Mrs. Sarah Ambler, and many valuable letters and documents were destroyed by fire at the burning of Columbia.  They were in the possession of Mrs. Lucy Holcombe Pickens the wife of the Governor of South Carolina at that time and a grand-daughter of Philemon and Lucy Maria Holcombe.

     "My grandmother Holcombe was a lady of fine physique and strongly marked character.  She was a grand old-fashioned Virginia housekeeper and that means a great deal to those acquainted with the social customs and immense hospitalities of that period.  She was a superb manager of her servants, and we may add, sotto voce, of her husband.  She was such a srict disciplinarian that she is said to have horse-whipped one of her sons for some act of disobedience, when he was eighteen years of age.  It is through her side of the house that the Rev. Dr. Samuel Anderson of St. Louis was our cousin.  He was breakfasting with me in New Orleans when we received the terrible news of President Lincoln's assassination, and we agreed in the opinion that it would prove a great calamity to the Southern people.  Grand-nephews of my grandmother were also Col. Beverly Jones (the Beverly from his grandfather Beverly Anderson) who was killed in command of an Alabama regiment, and his brother James Alfred Jones of Richmond, one of the most distinguished lawyers in Virginia.

     My grandfather was independent and his wife was rich, so they lived in convivial, hospitable style.  When one fortune was frittered away, Mrs. Holcombe received another by the will of a bachelor brother.  The old colonel was exceedingly popular and highly respected.  Some warm friends once wished to have him nominated for Congress, but he declined the proposed honor, saying that he had always been regarded by his friends and neighbors as an honorable, respectable man, but if he entered the political arena, it would soon be discovered that he was one of the greatest rascals in the state, a satire upon the bitter political spirit which prevailed in what we call "the good old times."

 

Hope you enjoyed this!                                               Sincerely, Warwick Aiken

Hello- I was looking up Holcombe genealogy, and came across the letters

written to you by Warwick Aiken. He mentions that his ancestor was Dr.

William James Holcombe, who is my husband's great-great-grandfather. I

have not been able to find information on William James Holcombe's

descendents and would like to correspond with Mr. Aiken. My husband is

also related to the Aikens from South Carolina and New Orleans about

whom I know little. There is not a contact listed for him. If you still

have his e-mail address, I would very much appreciate it if you could

please pass this message on to him and see if he is interested in an

exchange of information. Thanks very much. Faith Holcombe

Pat,

 

I replied and said that I knew of no connection, but I feel sure now that I do.  I went back and checked closer.

 

In Benjamin Watkin's will he mentions his mother, FRANCES ANDERSON HOLCOMBE, who married Benjamin's father, Thomas Watkins.  She was the daughter of Major James Philemon Holcombe, Jr. a Revolutionarey War veteran.  Was James Holcombe's wife an Anderson and if so, what was her name?

 

My mother-in-law, Margaret Letitia was born and lives in the home that had belonged to Benjamin Watkins. Benjamin's grandaughter, Ethel Watkins (oldest child of John Thomas) m. Whitson H. Wilkinson and they bought the farm and home.

 

A Benjamin Watkins married Sarah Allen Winfrey, 23, Jan 1851. Their son, John Thomas married Sallie Frances Salmon, my husband's

G-grandparents.  (John T. was the young man  that after his father died, went across Ark. to live with relatives in TX during the Civil War.  In

1870, he rode a pony back across Ark., swan the Mississippi River and returned to Chestnut Hill, home place of the Winfreys).

 

This may be the connection with the Watkins you spoke of.  I would like to know for sure.  Thanks.

Pat,

 

You overwhelmed me!!!  I am so delighted to receive all the material you sent.  How kind and sharing you are, and I'm grateful.  My brother-in-law had told me he had traced the Watkins to the 1600's.  He has done all the work, not I.  I think it's great to know more about the ladies.

 

We live in Fayette County, TN, about 350 yards from where the Majors home was behind our house.  A book, The History of Fayette County, 1986, has a section about the Rev. War veterans buried in our county.  Major Holcombe's grave site is unknown.  It is suggested that perhaps it is close by.  His home was on the hill behind the present home of Margaret Winfrey.  Of course nothing is left except the indention of the house basement, and for years buttercups bloomed around the location. There is an old cemetery not far from the old house site, but a tornado hit it many years ago.  We have tried to erect the monuments, but to no avail. 

 

The Major and Lucy Maria came to La Grange, TN in May 1829 according to the article.  I did notice that you have her death in 1829.  It is likely that she is buried in La Grange.  He did marry second, the widow Mary Williamson who had children, sometime after the death of Lucy Maria.  I don't remember any mention of children from this second marriage.

 

I am convinced that Frances Anderson Holcombe was married only once and to Thomas Watkins.  If you check surname queries, you will not find the name Welheus anywhere.  When I look at the two names, I can see that it was not only possible, but very probable it was read incorrectly somewhere (and looking at some of the old handwriting, I can understand) and so it was transposed wrong.

 

I can't thank you enough.  The best of regards,

 

Laura

Patrick,

 

I've been seeing your notes on GenForum about the Anderson family of VA. I would like very much to know what you have that indicates the Gideon Anderson who died in Wilkes Co GA in 1802 was a son of Charles Anderson of Cumberland Co VA.

 

This Gideon is my ancestor, and I have suspected that he was the grandson of Thomas of Albemarle Co VA, instead of his son.  And Charles seemd to me the likely candidate for his father, but I've found no proof.

 

Sorry, but I have to differ with you somewhat on the wife and children of Gideon of Wilkes Co.  I know of printed sources that indicate that

Gideon married Elizabeth STEPPE, but I have found no records to prove this and no records at all for a STEPPE family in areas where Gideon lived.  There is a recent book by Michal Martin Farmer that gives very good circumstantial evidence that Gideon's wife was a daughter of Orson/Austin MARTIN and Susanna GANNAWAY.  The name of the book is "The Genealogy of the Webster, Martin, Dozier, Staples, and Starke Families of Wilkes Co GA."  Orson MARTIN and Gideon ANDERSON traveled together from VA to NC to Wilkes Co GA and received their land in GA the same day.

 

The Polly Anne and Patty that you have as daughters of Gideon are actually the same person.  I know that the Wilkes Co books list them as

two different persons.  But I have a copy of Gideon's will from Wilkes Co, and I believe it has been incorrectly abstracted and printed.

 

These are the children I have for Gideon ANDERSON:

William (1763-1844), married Sara FINCH and Mary HUNNICUTT

Keziah, married Buckner DUKES

Martin, married Nancy ARNETT

Patsy Ann, married COOPER

Charles, married Margaret ARNETT

Susannah, married BUTLER

James, married Nancy MARTIN and Elizabeth W. SHORT

 

Thanks for any help,

Barbara Thomas

       Thank you for replying to my post on Gideon Anderson. From the information I have it sounds like this could very well be the right family. I see on one of the lines you have a Gideon dying in Wilkes County, GA in 1802 and married to Elizabeth, could she have proceeded him in

death and a second marriage for him? Or did he have a son Gideon?

       My line is James Marion Anderson born 1797 GA, he marries a Nancy Martin in Wilkes County, GA 11 Nov 1813 on the marriage listing it says father Gideon. I show Nancy Martin Anderson dying in Wilkes Co., GA 1 Nov 1819. James Marion goes on to Lauderdale County, MS with his mother as a widow and listed as Sarah Anderson . The 1850 Lauderdale Co., MS census list him as born in GA and his 90 yr old mother with him. In 1851 in Lauderdale Co., MS his mothers will is probated listing her children as follows:

 

Thomas Anderson

Isaac Anderson

James Marion Anderson

William Anderson

Sarah Ann Anderson

Elizabeth Anderson

Rebecca Anderson

Jemimah Anderson

 

James Marion Anderson has the following children by his first marriage to Nancy Martin daughter of William Martin:

 

Elizabeth Anderson

William Thomas Anderson

 

James Marion Anderson's second marriage is to Sarah Pope in Wilkes County, GA, her father is John Pope. James Marion and Sarah have the following children:

 

Minor L. Anderson

Tempa H. Anderson

 

James Marion's third marriage is to Carun Kerson Jones they moved to Tyler Co., TX where James died in 1857, they were married in 1834 in MS and had the following children:

 

George A. Anderson

Sarah Ann Anderson

J.N.K. Anderson

Malinda T. Anderson

Robert A. Anderson

B.M. Anderson

C.F. Anderson

T.J.F.P. Anderson

 

Does any of this seem to fit with what you have? The names seem to be reasonable. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello

        I was amazed to come upon your site by a series of links (I forget where I started) and even more amazed to find my many Anderson lines all assigned as "descendants of ". The line that was of most interest was the one that I could never tie in to any of the Andersons I had documented: Charles of Cumberland County, VA who is listed in your material as son of Thomas Anderson and Agnes Gannaway.

        My link is his daughter Keziah who married (1)...Cocke and (2) John Raine.  I had suspected that Charles' wife might have been a Parsons because I thought that Keziah had a brother named Parsons Anderson  but I was obviously mistaken.

        Can you tell me how we know for sure that this Charles of Cumberland is the son of Thomas.  The Charles in Prince

Edward County was his contemporary and some of the records I collected about 25 years ago were probably for him.

        Can you put me in e-mail touch with some one researching this Charles of Cumberland line and the Gannaway line?  Has any one

worked on a Parsons connection or was there ever a suggested name for Charles of Cumberland's wife?

        Thank you for making this exciting material available!

Dear Sir:

In your research on the Andersons of VA and GA, I saw many references to the surname Rains. My ancestor, Henry Rains, Esquire, 1715-1786, is somehow connected to a William Anderson Rains of VA. There was an old silver spoon in the family engraved with "William Anderson Rains, 1685." Have you come across any such connection? My ancestor Henry Rains, Esquire, was a lawyer, legislator and RW Captain for the Continental Army, with the first land grant showing on the Johnston County, NC, records ca. 1746. Henry Rains, Esquire, was married to Ann Oliver, daughter of Richard Oliver, who also came from VA to NC. Any help would be appreciated. I am a Rains married to an Anderson descendant...

Dear Sir,

 

[snip]

 

I have several proven connections to Anderson families. Two of my collateral ancestors, siblings of my grandmother Anne Cocke Cheek of Orange Co., NC, (formerly of Bute Co., NC and Brunswick Co., VA) married Andersons listed on your website.  Her sister Mary Cocke m. 1758, Parsons Anderson in Cumberland Co., VA with Thomas Cocke (their brother), bondsman.  She is mentioned as Mary Anderson in the will of her father, Brazure Cocke of Brunswick, just a few years later.  Do you know where Parsons Anderson resided at his death and how did you know that he died during the Revolutionary War?  What of their children?  The other sibling of Anne Cheek, Thomas Cocke, is said to have married Keziah Anderson (1741--25 Aug 1783) who married secondly, John Raine, 23 Dec 1761.  They had a son named Anderson Cocke, according to your website. I have looked for Thomas Cocke and his family in Cumberland Co in the period just prior to his death, when he would have settled there (he was there as early as 1754 and alive as late as 1759.)  I have also looked for a probate record for him, to no avail.  Deeds in Brunswick County, from whence he came, do say that he moved to Cumberland.  I did find a reference in one Cumberland Co. deed to land owned by Thomas Cocke, but no deed either by which he acquired it, or by which he sold it.  I do think that he had more than one child, for the will of Brazure Cocke, written in 1766, refers to the "children" of his son Thomas.  So far, I've no absolute proof that Anderson Cocke was his son, except for the coincidence of their being in the same place at the same time and the name of Anderson.  Have you seen this record?

 

S9232, Revolutionary War Pension Application of Anderson Cocke.  VA Line. Applied 21 Aug 1832 in Prince Edward Co., VA, aged 74 (so b. c. 1758) Born in Cumberland Co., VA and lived in Prince Edward at enlistment and after the war, lived there and in Campbell Co., VA. Herbert Clarence Bradshaw's HISTORY OF PRINCE EDWARD COUNTY VA says that Anderson Cocke was the fifer in 2nd Co., 4th Regiment Va Troops, from Payroll muster 28 Jun-28 Jul 1776.   (p. 111)

 

From the Cocke family history printed in the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Anderson Cocke of Cumberland was a Representative in the State Assembly 1795, 1796 and 1798.  This author seemed to think that Anderson Cocke was from the line of Bowler Cocke.

I have hit a brick wall on Mary Anderson.  She was born in VA about 1757, and I believe died in VA.  She was married to Edmund Pearce (born VA).  Their son, James Anderson Pearce (born 19 Oct 1777, VA) married (30 Sep 1810, Louisville, Jefferson Co. KY), Ann Clark (born 19 May, 1792, VA. She was the daughter of Jonathan Clark and Sarah Hite).  James Anderson Pearch died in Louisville, 18 Nov 1824.  Ann died in Louisville, 18 Jul 1833.  Their daughter Mary was my great grandmother.  I have been searching for these Andersons for years.

I have several ANDERSON ancestor lines in mine and my husband's families. One is Elizabeth ANDERSON [1763-1823] d. in Prince Edward County VA.  She married Capt. Josiah LEGRAND [1760-1836]. Her parents were supposedly James ANDERSON Jr [d. 1782 Cumberland County VA] and Betty MOORE. Is anyone else working on this line, especially James ANDERSON and Betty MOORE?

Patrick,

      I found your information on Rootweb about a year ago.  Now, I can't seem to get back to it.  This James Anderson is my direct line, and I am looking for proof of his birthdate and deathdate.  In your info, you mention a Land Patent dated 10 September 1755 in Cumberland Co. --- which would prove that he was at least 21 years old in 1755.  Do you have any other document that would give his birthdate closer to 1720? 

      Also, you have what seems to be an abstract of his Will in Cumberland Co. VA in 1782 and the Division of his Estate.  Do you have a copy of his Will and this Division?  I would like to get a copy of both of these.

      Do you have any information on his wife, Betty Moore?

      I am descended through his daughter, Elizabeth, who married Josiah LeGrand, and I have lots of info on this line that I will gladly share.

      Thanks for helping me with this.

Dear Patrick,

I am seeking information, first, of William Anderson, b.1734, d. 1811, who lived in Cumberland Co. VA.  His son, Richard, b.19 July 1761, d. 12 May 1833, married Frances Scruggs, the daughter of Drury Scruggs.  All in Cumberland Co.  Can you give me anymore information about them.

 

Thank you,

Dear Pat,  I sent you a note last week, but perhaps it was not as clear as I would like. 

    Here is what I have found:  Under Descendants of Robert Anderson, at the end of Generation 3, you have, at #41, William Anderson m. Esther? and then their child Richard Anderson, b. July 1761, died 1833.  Now, this Richard Anderson is the one who married Frances Scruggs.  Remember my asking about her?  I now have come into possession of what was contained in the now lost Richard Anderson Family Bible that lays out the particulars.

    William Anderson was born 1734, and died in 1811.  His wife was Frances, or Fanny, as was the name of his son Richard's wife. I have my own line traced, with proof, from Richard to myself, that is if the bible extracts are worthy proof. Would you like to see these materials?  It would settle up part of the Cumberland County Anderson's.

Yours, Bill    (William Davis Anderson)

Dear Pat, I wrote to you a couple of weeks ago, but since have changed internet services.  To repeat my findings, I see that you have Richard Anderson as #132 under The Descendants of Robert Anderson.  Richard's father is #41 among the children of Thomas Anderson and Agnes Gannaway.  Now, the Anderson Family Bible, of which I have excerpts, states that William was born in 1734, not 1710 to 1720 and that his wife was a Frances, last name unknown.  Since there apparently is some tentativeness to William's dates and about his wife's name, I believe my new findings may shed light on the matter.  The Richard Anderson (1761-1835) listed as the only child of William married Frances Scruggs.  I am a direct descendant of them.  Please let know if you would like to see a copy of the bible information and my other proofs for my line.

Dear Pat,

You and I exchanged messages on the Anderson Genforum regarding the Richard Anderson who married Frances Scruggs.  I have now obtained more information, namely excerpts from Richard Anderson's Family Bible.  It was transcribed in 1920 by Graham H. Harris of Chicago and sent to a relative of mine; the bible itself is now lost.  We start with:

       Richard and Frances Anderson married 30th October 1783. 

This couple is mentioned in the index to both the 1936 and 1938 books by William Pope Anderson as the parents of Ann Allen Anderson who married Nathan Harris on 11 April 1811.  The bible, not WPAnderson, also mentions my ancestor, Thomas Anderson, Ann Allen Anderson Harris' brother, who married Chloe Glascock on 21 December 1815.  WPAnderson refers to Richard and Frances as "Capt. Richard Anderson and Frances Scruggs of Buckingham Co" in connection with Ann's marriage to Nathan. 

       Now, I see that an Ann Anderson, b. 1704, daughter of Thomas and Agnes Anderson, married a James Allen.  Isn't this a tempting coincidence: Ann Anderson Allen and Ann Allen Anderson in the the second generation after Ann Anderson Allen?

       The bible contains much more info., but I thought I would float this with you and see if it rings any bells.

Yours,

Bill     (William Davis Anderson)

Dear Pat, I am descended from Thomas AndersonxSarah Clark through Tingnal

Point outside of Boydton) and have tried for years to find her maiden name.

When a distant cousin told me of your wonderful site and I saw the amount of

info you have my hopes rose, but no go. If you ever come across this please

let me know as this is one of the few blanks I have in this line. I have

been told by one of my Mother's older  sisters who would be 125 years old if

she were still living that the second wife Mary was sister to Martha. At

present I am trying to find where Tig attended medical school in hopes that

is where he met Martha.I suppose we can't possibly hope  to find all these

little questions. Thanks for your work on this line.My g-grandmother was

Hello, Pat. I have just come across your web site with information

regarding the Anderson family and there are some clues there which may

help me track down some members of my own family. I am trying to locate

the siblings of William Henry Holcombe, the homeopathic physican who

died in New Orleans in 1893. I believe that he had a relative - most

likely a brother - that married Cornelia T Hunt b 8/11/1833 in Virginia.

 

I have a letter which Wm H Holcombe wrote to Cornelia in which he

addresses her as "My dearly beloved Sister Cornelia" but in the body of

the letter he also mentions that Rebecca (his wife Rebecca Palmer?) had

written to thank Cornelia for some things which she (Cornelia) had sent

them. My guess is that Cornelia was actually William H's sister-in-law

but I have no information at all to confirm this. William does mention

"Tommy's last letter" so he may have had a brother named Thomas who may

have been Cornelia's husband.

 

There is another curiosity about the letter. It was written 14 January

1869 and refers to his mother's health. According to the R Bolling Batte

files at the Library of Virginia,  William's mother was Mary Allen

Royall (w/o Thomas Anderson Holcombe) and she died February 5, 1868, a

year before William wrote the letter.

 

Excuse me for being so long-winded, but I thought it worthwhile to

explain the few bits of information I have. In any event, you have on

your web site quite a bit of information from a gentleman named Warwick

Aiken, a descendant of William Henry Holcombe and his wife Rebecca.

Would you please forward this email to him as I am hopeful he will have

more information about the family and may be able to help me put some

pieces together. Many thanks.

Patrick, here is some info. I promised on Buckner Duke and Keziah Anderson Duke,  b.  1767 (daughter of Gideon who settled in Wilkes Co., Ga.)

 

<< Buckner's father was Joseph Duke ( m. Mary Eppes) who died 1n 1779 in Warren Co., N.C.  Joseph was the son of William Duke, Sr., b. 1701, d. 1775.  He settled in Brunswick Co., Va. and then N.C.  He married Thamar Taylor who probably died in Brunswick Co.  William  remarried before  moving to N.C.  (On the website I saw other Anderson relatives who had married Eppes and Taylors.  Interesting.  And an uncle of Gideon's who was an overseer for Wm Byrd II).

 

The father of Joseph was James Duke, b. James City Co., Va; d.1751 in Charles City Co.;  Justice of James City Co. in 1714 and of Charles City Co.. in 1720.  James was "very probably" (in Henry Duke, Councilor, Walter Duke, 1949) the son of Col. Henry Duke, Councilor, of James City Co., Va.

 

The marriage of James Duke to Mary Byrd (1700-01) sister of Wm.  Byrd II, is confirmed mainly through references to James in The Secret Diary of William Byrd II, which only came to light in the 20th century, and has generally now been accepted by researchers.  The reference to their son born 3 Aug., 1709 "most likely" is to our ancestor William, according to Evelyn Duke Brandenburger in Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, p. 118.

>>

Buckner and Keziah's daughter, Rebecca Duke, was born 16 February, 1791, in Ga. and married James Read on 2 Feb., 1806.  James Read, son of Ajonadab Read and Elizabeth___, was born 21 Feb., 1778 in Bedford Co., Va.  Rebecca and James died in Taliaferro Co., Ga. and are buried in the Old Read cemetery, Powell's Creek.   They had 20 children, 14 of whom made to adulthood  and seem to have married into prominent families, including  the family of Alexander Stevens, Gov. of Ga.

 

Their daughter Susan Martin Reid (note spelling change),1829-1903, married James W. Williams, settled in Thomasville, Ga. and had 1 son and 6 daughters.  James W. Williams enlisted in the Civil War and was shot off his horse and died at the Battle of Haws Shop, near Richmond, 28 May, 1864.  Susan Reid Williams is buried in Thomasville.

 

Susan and James' daughter Alice Della Williams (1852-1907), married Joseph Peyton Smith, attorney and son of a well-known and well-respected Methodist minister in Thomasville during Reconstruction, Rev. Milton Smith.   Alice lived with her husband and 5 daughters in a house built by her brother Walter Williams which was later the site where McKinley declared his candidacy for the Presidency.

 

Pearl Martha Smith, the youngest daughter and my grandmother,  who was born in that house, lived from 1890 to 1989.  She married John Lindsey Blackwell, attorney, and lived in Live Oak, Florida for over 60 years, where her antique business, "Pearl Blackwell, Antiques", attracted a following from all over Georgia and Florida.  She remarried at 85!

 

Pearl had two beautiful daughters, Emily and Martha.  Emily, b. 1917, married my father, Frederick George Denton, Jr., in 1940 and lived in his hometown, Knoxville, Tenn., for over 50 years.  After his death she remarried, at 78, and now lives happily in Richmond, the city founded by her ancestors the Byrds.

 

Emily and Fred Denton's children:  Lynn Blackwell Denton (me), John Denton, and Robin Stewart Denton.

 

I have had a special interest in tracing the female line in my family, from my mother's mother on back to the females in the Anderson family.   The female line in my family ends with Keziah, daughter of Gideon.   The next challenge is to discover the true identity of Gideon Anderson's wife!  Any leads are greatly appreciated.   Lynn Denton

Patrick:  You may or may not want to put all this on your website, but if you include the last paragraph it would help me in my search.  Thanks!

Barbara, thanks for the info on the book.

 

Our Gideon, according to Patrick Anderson on his website, was the son of Charles, who was a son of Thomas Anderson.  Charles had a brother named Thomas, which is where the confusion comes in.  This all seems to add up datewise. 

 

I just got an e-mail from Calvin Dorris (caledo25@hotmail.com) who said his notes show Gideon's wife to be Elizabeth Martin, daughter of Orson Martin and Susannah Gannaway. Think he got that from the Farmer book?  I asked him to let me know the source for that information.  Am also dying to know about this Gannaway connection, which supposedly goes back to  the di Medicis in 1544!

 

I will look up the dates for Gideon and Buckner that I have.  Actually I have almost no dates for anybody, just the names  which were researched very carefully by a descendent of Keziah.  O.K., here they are:  Gideon's will was probated in Wilkes Co., Ga., in 1802.  Buckner Duke's estate was appraised in Hancock Co., Ga., 4 Sept., 1816.  That's it on them.  That's why I was so happy to see all this info on the Anderson website!

 

Buckner's father was Joseph Duke ( m. Mary Eppes) who died 1n 1779 in Warren Co., N.C.  Joseph was the son of William Duke, Sr., b. 1701, d. 1775.  He settled in Brunswick Co., Va. and then N.C.  He married Thamar Taylor who probably died in Brunswick Co.  William  remarried before  moving to N.C.  (On the website I saw other Anderson relatives who had married Eppes and Taylors.  Interesting.  And an uncle of Gideon's who was an overseer for Wm Byrd II).

 

The father of Joseph was James Duke, b. James City Co., Va; d.1751 in Charles City Co.;  Justice of James City Co. in 1714 and of Charles City Co.. in 1720.  James was "very probably" (in Henry Duke, Councilor, Walter Duke, 1949) the son of Col. Henry Duke, Councilor, of James City Co., Va.

 

The marriage of James Duke to Mary Byrd (1700-01) sister of Wm.  Byrd II, is confirmed mainly through references to James in The Secret Diary of William Byrd II, which only came to light in the 20th century, and has generally now been accepted by researchers.  The reference to their son born 3 Aug., 1709 "most likely" is to our ancestor William, according to Evelyn Duke Brandenburger in Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, p. 118.

 

There is more but I'll stop for now. Getting late.   Lynn

 

P.S.  Do you know anything about the "Rev." title for Gideon?

Hello.  I am related to the Anderson family found in Mississippi and Georgia.  I believe I can connect to some of the lines that you have posted.  The last ancestor that I have documented for sure is Augustus J. Anderson b abt 1805 in Georgia,  who married Mary Rice. They lived mainly in Randolph Co., GA. By 1860 he moved his family to Leake Co., Mississippi.  Their son, Charles Crumby Anderson b. 13 Nov 1834 in Georgia,  married Nancy Ann Bowling.  Charles is my great great grandfather.

 

I have been told that Augustas J. Anderson was the son of Martin who married Nancy Arnett, who was the son of Gideon Anderson, son of Charles, son of Thomas, son of Robert, son of Richard, son of Richard SR and Elizabeth Hawkins.

 

I have not been able to locate the source of this info.  Of course your webb site contains most of the history of these families, but not Augustas J. Anderson.

 

I am very interested in connecting my Augustas to his father.  Can you give me any leads?

 

I am also a descendant of the Hawkins line from England.

 

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Anita Simmons

I found these folks.  I think they are great grandparents paternally.  The listed children almost match.  Slight change is middle names.  Willis and Sprunt are my grandfather and great uncle.  Never knew Alexander Sprunt, just Sprunt.  My dad's brother Carl used to say his middle name was Archibald.  We thought he was teasing.  Death of Adolphus from "white swelling," tuberculosis of the bones.  Children sent to Barium Springs Home south of Statesville, NC.  Mattie went to Richmond and set up millinery.  One son Charles (?) became foster son to Blackwell relatives.  Became tobacco buyer for American Tobacco Co.  Very successful but died in early middle age.  His son (Charles or Carl) died in an auto wreck while a student at Princeton.  Carl/Charles has been considered a hard luck name as my father's brother Carl Lewis (Archibald!?) Wortham died at 45 yo.

 

 A  certain Blackwell started Bull Durham Tobacco Co. which was overtaken by the Duke's American Tobacco.  Judge Susie Sharp of Riedsville is my grandfather's 1st cousin once removed, or so I'm told.  Her mother a Blackwell with a Wortham mother was foster sister to Charles Archibald Wortham.

 

Mattie was by my father's account a dragon.  She took pride in being an FFV.  Willis Jordan Wortham got changed to Willis Fielding Lewis Wortham, at least I have this hunch this is so.  I'm sure Mattie Lewis Wortham encouraged it.  Are you familiar with the Britcom "Keeping Up Appearances?"  The social climbing Hyacinth Bucket--"That's Bouquet!"--syndrome at work here.  I believe she wanted to give her children a social edge in Richmond by renaming them.
