Jacob Anderson, son of James and Jane (Allison Anderson and Rebecca  Anderson, daughter of Isaac and Margaret (Evans) Anderson married in Rockbridge County on 10 Aug 1798.  Their children were named James

Margaret, Jane, Ma rtha, Adaline, Rebecca and Elizabeth


Here are some marriages for the daughters of Isaac and Margaret (Evans) Anderson, all in Rockbridge County.  Esther married John Edmiston 20 Feb 1794; Mary married Andrew McCampbell, son of John, on 7 April 1781 Rebecca married Jacob Anderson, son of James and Jane (Allison) Anderson on 10 Aug 1798; Margaret married James Harris; Jane married George McNutt; and Martha married James McCampbell


Children of Andrew and Mary (Anderson) McCampbell were Margaret, Andrew, Elizabeth, Flora and William Anderson.  James and Martha (Anderson) McCampbell had one child that I know of, John born 1781


Regarding the William in Botetourt, I may be mistaken but I believe I learned years ago that he was the immigrant in that family, and that he came from Glasgow.  I'm not sure about that, though.  I'll check it out the next time I go to the library.


I don't remember if I told you this before, but I live in Salt Lake City, so have the LDS Family History Library nearby.  I will be happy to search Anderson/Va information if you email me specific questions


Bless you for all the time and effort you have devoted and continue to devote to untangling the Va Andersons.

I read your posting 4-4-00 and questioned if this isn't the same William who came to Knox Cty. Tn.and was the father of Rev Isaac who founded Maryville College.

    I have a copy of the memorial publication (1932) suitable for faxing which was prepared by Samuel Tyndale Wilson of Maryville College and James Addison Anderson with extensive research on site in Tn and Va.William has nearly identical facts but is buried in the Anderson- Goufon Cem. in Knox Cty.
