Descendants of John Anderson

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  John3 Anderson  (North Side2, Colonial Virginia1)1 was born Bef. 1700 in Scotland, and died in Pennsylvania.  He married Margaret ?1 in Ulster, Ireland.  She died Bef. March 20, 1764 in Augusta County, Virginia.

 

Notes for John Anderson:

John 01/10/1735 Spotsylvania Co

400a adj Gawin Corbin southside of Robinson Run

patents 16/444

 

This patent was probably obtained by the elder John Anderson while he was still a resident of Pennsylvania, and is the origins of his son's moves into central Virginia.  However if the son John is older than we think, it may be his.

Hi!  It has been a while since I have been in touch with you.  You have my information posted on your Anderson web site about the John Anderson family of Augusta Co., VA.  Recently I have gotten several messages pertaining to that site, which I had forgotten all about.  My sister and I have since updated that information in some vital ways, and it is posted on my sister's web site:

 

Thought you might like to know and maybe just provide a link to that site rather than the information, since that is where we will post the updated information when we have it.

 

Hope all is going well with your research.  Chris Kraft

Pat - Thanks for the info.  I am not a beginner, just a beginner to the internet.  I've been tracking Andersons in VA for ca 25 years.  I know all the Samuels you mentioned except Samuel Read Anderson.  What family does he belong to?  Also, please correct your info.  The Samuel Anderson b in 1747 in Augusta Co, s of James, married Sarah Young and migrated to KY.  He is NOT the Samuel who married Elizabeth, and who may be my ancester.  This is a commonly repeated piece of misinformation.  Thank you for taking the time to reply.  Linda

Dear Mr. Anderson,

 

Terry D. Smith responded to my inquiry about this family by giving me your e-mail address.  Our family is descended from Gilbert Christian and Margaret Anderson.  I am have some trouble sorting out the many marriages of Christian/Anderson and Skillern/Anderson and Skillern/Christian.  I hope you can help me.

 

From the Bible entries of John Anderson, b. May 6, 1750 and Rebecca Maxwell Anderson, b. August 7, 1753, he lists the names of all his 62 grandchildren with dates of birth and whose children they are.  According to this entry and the wills of William Christian and his wife Elizabeth "Betsey" Anderson, these facts are cross referenced as correct. 

 

Several researchers show Gilbert Christian married to Margaret Anderson and the child of William Christian, b. 1772 and Margaret Anderson, b. Est. 1766-1789.  Obviously, Gilbert didn't marry his mother.  Can you verify the parentage of both Margaret Anderson married to Gilbert and Margaret Anderson married to William?

 

Later, there is a William Christian (one of many) b. 1808 in KY and sometimes shown as the child of William Christian, b. 1772 and Margaret Anderson.  I do not know for sure who the parents of William, Isabella Moffett, George Anderson and Pierra Christian, all born early 1800's in Kentucky were.  There is a possibility that they are the children of John Christian, Sr., son of Gilbert, who was in Kentucky during that time period and would be about the right age.  This group of four brothers and sisters ended up in Nacogdoches, Texas. 

 

I am hopeful, as a direct descendant of Andersons, that you will have more solid information on some of these Margaret Andersons.   Thank you for  any clarification you might be able to give me.

 

Linda Christian

PS

My John Anderson who married Rebecca did not have an W for intial of a middle name. There was a John W. Anderson in the same area and may have been related but, Williams son John did not have the intial W. in his name.

The source everyone seems to use is from Mary Lynn Steward. I have read this book and her own resorces are sketchie at best. I traveled all over to verify my research. I even went to Philidelphia to their historical library and reseached when the Andersons came in to PA. They were not Irish. They were from Scotland and along with other clans fled the English teranny by way of Ireland to the colonies. I have read the english tax records in that library and read the what Jane Anderson Henninger wrote her family bible. It is in a prvate family collection in TN. And the family no longer allows viewing of the bible and even had to have the phone number changed because as genealogy became more popular life became a nightmare for them. Calls, letters, ect. from all over. I have lot of history on this line and have crawled through brush, climbed hills to old Anderson family cemetaries looking and verifying all I have. Went to tiny towns and big cities. Interviewed people, family, cousins in-laws, out-laws, ect. I was not content to put down what someone wrote nearly 100 years ago. I noticed I misspelled Rebecca Melissa Maxwells middle name early. Sorry. I hope this helpes.

Hi,

 

I needed to send a correction that I received today from Chris Kraft.  I think that the letter explains it better than I could.  Could you please disconnect Samuel Anderson from James who we thought was his father, as I have?  Thank you.

 

Alice Gedge

 

Hi Christine!  I left you a phone message a while back, but I'm not sure if you got it.  I just recently got online, didn't have the means to email you  before.  I wanted to tell you that Elizabeth Anderson b ca 1754, daughter of  William, DID NOT marry her first cousin Samuel the son of James.  James' son  Samuel married Sarah Young, moved to KY and eventually died in IN.  I do not know who the other Samuel was, but have been trying to find out for many years, because he may be my ancestor.  My earliest known ancestor is Samuel b 1782 VA, married Lydia Powell, daughter of Richard and Sarah Powell of Shenandoah County in 1805 and moved to Belmont Co OH in 1808, later settling permanently in Monroe/Noble Co OH.  I know his father's name was Samuel also, because the marriage record lists his father's name.  So my Samuel's father would have been a Samuel Anderson b ca 1750, thus the perfect age to have married Elizabeth.  Do you have any idea what became of them?  They lived in Augusta Co for about 15 years, bought and sold land several times with his brother William, and then disappeared from the scene around 1790.  I have never been able to discover what became of them.  If you have any info which could shed light on this subject, I certainly would like to hear from you.  If not, at least please correct the mistaken information in your records.  Here is my line back to Samuel:  George Elmer Anderson b 1911 IL d 1978 IL; John Harvey Anderson b 1870 IL d 1953 IL; Ezekiel Anderson b 1844 OH d 1932 IL; Ezekiel Anderson b 1813 OH d 1844 OH; Samuel Anderson b 1782 VA d 1867 OH; Samuel Anderson b ca 1750 d ????   Happy hunting!  Linda

Patrick - Regarding the Samuel Anderson who married Elizabeth Anderson  ca 1775 in Augusta Co, this Samuel was not the son of James of the "4 brothers".  Jame's son Samuel married Sarah Young and migrated to Madison Co KY.  He died in IN in 1832.  The Samuel who married Elizabeth had brothers named William and Thomas and their father was also named Samuel.  Samuel and William administered the estate of Thomas in 1776 in Augusta Co.  I would appreciate any info anyone may have re Samual and Elizabeth.  The info on your page blows me away.  I've been gathering Virginia Andersons for a long time, and your stuff has helped me a lot in figuring out who

belongs to whom.  THANK YOU.  Linda
