Descendants of Reynard Anderson

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  Reynard3 Anderson  ("South Side"2, "Colonial Virginia"1)1 was born Abt. 16401, and died 1690 in Charles City County, Virginia1.  He married Elizabeth Skiffen1 1662 in Charles City County, Virginia1, daughter of William Skiffen.  She was born Abt. 16421, and died Abt. 1694 in Charles City County, Virginia1.

 

Notes for Reynard Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

        Reynard Anderson is identified as a head right in the patent of Martin Coale for 300 acres on the south side of the Great Wicomoco River in Northumberland County on 07/01/1654.  In 1650 William Skiffen had been imported to Northumberland County and as Reynard is recorded to have married Elizabeth Skiffen (likely an underage daughter at the time of the 1650 importation) Reynard may have begun his time in Virginia in Northumberland County. 

        However by 1662 he had become a resident of the southside Virginia.  His name appears in the Charles City County records and as transcribed by readers takes on several variant spellings.  I have no indication of where he was born and consideration must be given equally to the possibility that he came from Europe and/or was born to the Anderson family of the York River.  The name Reynard is unusual. In English: of Norman origin, derived from a Germanic personal name composed of the elements ragin advice, decision + hard hardy, brave, strong. In French, renard (derived from this name) has become the generic name for a fox, as a result of the popularity of medieval beast tales featuring Re(y)nard le goupil "Reynard the fox". Cognate: German: Reinhard. (source ancestry.com)

        Reynard probably purchased land near Bailey's Creek in Charles City County south of the James River around the time of his marriage in 1662.  His purchase of land rather than patenting it, implies he had resources to pay. However all the Charles City County deeds have been destroyed so it is not possible to confirm what lands he might have held while raising his children. The 1663 Bennington power of Attorney mentions Mays and Coleman who are later associated with lands near Bailey's Creek which flows northeast of Petersburg Virginia. Just before his death he does obtain a patent in the headwaters of Blackwater River which reach just short of the Bailey Creek area. It is unlikely he had enough time to do much with that late acquisition of land.  His daughter Frances marries John Herbert whose plantation was also in this vicinity. It is important to note that his sons all obtained land by 1704 along Bailey Creek just northeast of current Petersburg and it is likely that this came from their father's estate.  Because the sons received differing shares of their fathers estate it appears his will was probated but has been lost due to civil war distruction of records.

Patrick:

    I think we have corresponded before.  I am looking for Mayes/Mays family connections.  I've been looking over all this wonderful information on your page.  Thank you so much for posting all of this onto the internet. 

    About Reynard -- he, John Coleman and John Mayes were together in the early years and it appears that his family and the Mayes stayed together for awhile.  I think a daughter of his either was a wife to John Mayes Sr. or to one of his sons.  This is based on 1. the naming pattern in the Mayes family and 2. the continued proximity between the families.  Right now, what I am hypothesizing is that John Mayes had sons William who married Mary Mattox, John Jr. who married a Martha, Henry who married Mary, and maybe James who married ?  From one of these sons, two of whom were deceased by 1700,  (or possibly from a late marriage of John Sr.'s) we have: Matthew who married Elizabeth and moved to Dinwiddie; Henry who married Elizabeth and moved to unknown; John who married Julia and moved to unknown. There are also two Daniels, and a James Jr. I am working on fitting into this equation.

     I think that Matthew, John and Henry are sons or grandsons of a female Anderson.  Matthew Mayes in Dinwiddie lives nextdoor to William Anderson.  A James Mayes witnesses John Anderson's will.  I would appreciate any imput you could offer on this guess.

 

    Also -- you may have already noticed this, but I thought I'd mention that David Anderson of Stafford Co buys land with a Coale.  Reynard Anderson was imported in 1754 by Martin Coale of Northumberland Co.  This could be a clue.  I was especially interested in that they appear to buy land on Passapantanzy Creek (spelling is off but it is close enough to suggest it may be the same site) where I find a John Mees (Mays) living in late 1600s, early 1700s in St. Paul's parish, next to Grigsbys and Fowlke. I am very interested in the Stafford area, as this is where the Mayes of Amherst Co emigrated from.

Notes for Matthew Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

       Matthew Anderson was born near Bailey's Creek (vicinity of Petersburg, VA) after 1668 to be under the age of 21 at the time of the 1689 record identifying him as a son of Reynard Anderson.

 

Reynard Anderson

In Court 02/03/1689

Charles City County Court Orders 1687-1695, page 276

     Judgt. granted Reynard Anderson as guardian to his four sons Matthew, Wm., John, and Henry Anderson, legatees of Tho. Symons, dec'd, agst Geo. Downing, Exec. of will of said Symons, for £ 10, which is given to said sons (50 s to each) by said will. Said Anderson to give good security.

 

       When his father died in 1690 he received a legacy of land near Bailey's Creek which he held at the time of the 1704 rent roll wherein he is listed with his brothers.

Source, "The Quit Rents of Virginia, 1704"; by Smith, Annie Laurie Wright; Virginia State Archives; 1957.

Anderson, Henry          Prince George County     250 acres

Anderson, John      Prince George County     228 acres

Anderson, Matthew        Prince George County     349 acres

Anderson, Wm.       Prince George County     235 acres

 

       Note that Matthew was holding more land than his brothers and I believe that this is because he was acting as guardian to his nephews, sons of James Anderson his elder brother deceased before 1704.  He was likely holding lands legated to them by their grandfathers will in 1690.

       I have found no evidence that Matthew had a family although he seems to have acted as guardian for the sons of his older brothers James and William. It is very tempting to assign the children to the unconfirmed son James here under the listing for Matthew.  However the 1711 record clearly indicates that Mathew, Jr.'s father was James and desceased and as Mathew. Sr. lives on he could not be their father. Dinwiddie County records were destroyed in a 1833/7? fire and Matthew's family may be lost. A more thorough examination of Brunswick County records might reveal any children.

        2.  James4 Anderson (Reynard3, "South Side"2, "Colonial Virginia"1)1 was born Bet. 1663 - 1667 in Charles City County, Virginia1, and died Bet. 1694 - 1704 in Prince George County, Virginia1.  He married Elizabeth Thweatt1, daughter of James Thweatt and Mary Lee.  She was born Abt. 1670 in Charles City County, Virginia, and died Aft. 1712 in Prince George County, Virgnia.

 

Notes for James Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

        It is unproven that James Anderson was an elder son of Reynard born between 1662 and 1668.  James was apparently of age 21 before the 1689 record naming the other sons and therefore was not named.  James is last confirmed to be alive in 1693. James is not listed in the 1704 rent roll and is pressumed deceased before then. I am looking for evidence that Matthew acted as the guardian of James' infant children because they were underage at the death of their father.  Matthew posseses an extra 125 or so acres in the 1704 rent roll which I suspect to be land due to the orphans of James Anderson and does execute deeds in association with his nephews the sons of James. In tracing the family there is a greatgrandson in James' branch named Reinard.  Because James is not mentioned in the 1689 suit naming the sons considerable closure could be obtained by dismissing the son James and placing his children as Matthew's but I have not done so because the 1711 record specifically identifies Matthew Jr.'s father as James Anderson and that he is deceased. Matthew, Sr. however, was very much alive, so he could not be the father of the siblings of Matthew, Jr.

        These records naming Coleman and Mayse clearly associate this James Anderson with Reynard Anderson who was an associate of Coleman and Mayse in the 1663 time frame in the same vicinity near Bailey's Creek.  In addition this record clearly identifies Matthew Anderson, Jr. as the son of James Anderson.  I have examined the original in the Virginia State archives and this abstract is correct.  In consideration of the close association of the brother Matthew Anderson, Sr. with Matthew Anderson Jr.'s brother James along the Butterwood Creek I leave the possibility open that Matthew acted as their guardian.  Notice also that the 1710 record refers to the "land" of James Anderson while using names for the others.

        Frances Anderson was the daughter of Reynard Anderson and Elizabeth Skiffen. She would have been born in the mid 1660's just northeast of current Petersburg, Virginia.  She married John Herbert and lived with him on his estate "Puddledock" east of Petersburg.

        John Herbert was a wealthy trader and from his estate Mrs. Herbert is credited with 3925 acres of land in the 1704 rent roll of Prince George County and 1360 acres in Henrico County

        After John Herbert's death Frances married Thomas Cocke secondly and Joshua Wynne thirdly.  Her wealth made her a very marriagable widow.

In Reply to: Re: Peter Wynne/Winn died 1738 Prince George Co., VA by James R. Marie  of 729 

 

 

I am sorry, but I do not agree that Peter Wynne married Frances Anderson, based on the following: it is too time consuming to include all of the info but I shall quote from the following from AMERICAN GENEALOGIST, VOL. 37 & 38, #149, January 1962. The article is written by Cameron Allen of East Orange, N.J. He lists five noted sources, including the WILLIAM AND MARY QUARTERLY 1:8:147-8 (1900).

Briefly: ". . . The first writer to make the statement that the widow Frances (Anderson) Herbert married secondly Peter Wynne seems to have reached such a conclusion from a perusal of this series of facts: John Herbert died 17 March 1704 (i.e. 1704/5); in 1716 Mrs. Frances Wynne was executrix of Herbert's will; Peter Wynne's wife was named Frances. Mrs. Frances Wynne made her will in 1725; listing her Herbert children. Each "fact" in this series is just that; a fact; and yet the conclusion reached therefrom that Mrs. Herbert married Peter Wynne is greviously mistaken . . . Peter did not lift a finger to help Frances in the execution of Herbert's will. Then when Frances Wynne made her will on 16 October 1725, though she carefully named her children, she carefully avoided mentioning Peter Wynne. This is singular if he was her husband nor is he mentioned anywhere in the probate of her will 4 March 1726 (1726/27 (Prince George County Virginia Deeds 1713-28 pp. 973-4). Just one year later, on 11/12 March 1727, Peter Wynne and his wife, Frances deeded 42 acres to Joshua Woodlief. . .Further, if Mrs. Frances (Anderson) Herbert did marry Joshua Wynne's son, Peter, she must have been substantially his elder. Her first husband, John Herbert died 17 March 1704 (1704/5) in the 46th year of his age. . .In point of fact, chronology would seem to put her one full generation ahead of Peter. . . There were only three male Wynnes of this family of Charles City-Prince George of this generation. One of them Robert, died young and rather assuredly without issue. The next, Thomas, had a wife, Agnes mentioned in his will. This leaves only Joshua suited to marry Mrs. Herbert, barring the possibility that she married a Winn from some other county. . . but all of the records concerning Mrs. Frances Wynne place her in the very neighborhood where Joshua's children lived. Consequently it is fair to assume that she was of this family. We do know that Joshua Wynne had a wife, Mary. It seems not unlikely that Mary (Jones) Wynne predeceased her husband, Joshua sometime between 1707 and 1712 leaving him free to marry Mrs. Herbert. "

Pat, just a note to let you know that it now appears we have been looking at the wrong man as marrying the above Frances Anderson, who first married John HERBERT who died in 1704, then briefly to Thomas COCKE who died in 1707, and lastly, not to Peter WYNNE, but to his father, Joshua WYNNE!      To complicate matters, Peter WYNNE was indeed married to a Frances, himself, but she was definitely alive after Frances Anderson H.C. WYNNE died in 1726.    Ain't genealogy fun?  Best wishes, Gene Rooks

These interesting documents were sent to me by Barbara Good:

Frances Wynne is mentioned in 1713 showing she married him by then, probably in 1711.

 

 

The only name of a wife for Peter that appears in Prince George records, off an on from about 1713 through 1727, is Frances.  Research has indicated she is not the same Frances Anderson who was the widow of John Herbert.  (She married his father, Joshua)  The idea that she is a daughter of Col. Edward Hill is from a deed of a slave to Mary Wynne from the estate of Col. Edward Hill, but that may be an erroneous assumption, as he gave bequests to several people not his family.

 

Frances appears with her husband Peter as witness to this will:

From Woody Thomas comes the following:

12 March 1727, one year later, (than the recorded will of Frances Wynne, widow of John Herbert)  on page 1083 of the same deed

book, Peter Wynne's wife is examined in private by the court in the case of a deed conveying land from Peter Wynne and his wife Frances to Joshua Woodleif.

 Thus, Peter Wynne's wife Frances is just as clearly alive in March 1727 and, therefore, cannot be Frances, widow Herbert, as many Wynne genealogies claim.

 

       

Children of Frances Anderson and John Herbert are:

+      13               i.    Martha5 Herbert, born 1688 in Charles City County, Virginia.

Notes for William Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

        William Anderson was born near Bailey's Creek (vicinity of Petersburg, VA) after 1669 in order to be under 21 at the time of the 1689 record identifying his father as Reynard Anderson.

 

Reynard Anderson

In Court 02/03/1689

Charles City County Court Orders 1687-1695, page 276

     Judgt. granted Reynard Anderson as guardian to his four sons Matthew, Wm., John, and Henry Anderson, legatees of Tho. Symons, dec'd, agst Geo. Downing, Exec. of will of said Symons, for £ 10, which is given to said sons (50 s to each) by said will. Said Anderson to give good security.

 

        I have no proof of the family of William Anderson except that I know he married Mary Ligon from Henrico County records in 1698 and that some of the land south of Hopewell (owned by the five sons of Reynard) was passed to a Reynard Anderson and that a John Anderson appears in the Bristol Parish Register which covered the area near Mawhipponoak Creek.  It is likely that he has some children but as the Dinwiddie County records were all burned in a courthouse fire in 1833/7? it is not possible at this time to reconstruct his family from county records.  We must hope that we can find a descendant of his whom has family records.  The Ligon family claims that he died before 1716 and that his wife remarried to Peter Rowlett. However they are depending upon a deed abstract that has errors in it.  I suspect that Peter Rowlett in fact married Mary Ligon's mother Mary Ligon.

 

        When his father died in 1690 he received a legacy of land near Bailey's Creek which he held at the time of the 1704 rent roll wherein he is listed with his brothers.

Hi Patrick.  This is what I have.  It is color coded.

 

. Mary LIGON was born in 1679 in Henrico County, Virginia. " ..to my daughter, Mary..". She He was named in document in JAN 1716/17 in Varina Parish, Henrico County, Virginia. "Document was a statement that Wm. Ligon dec'd left certain land to be divided between his daughter Mary (now married to Peter Rowlett) and an unborn child, now 21 years and Lucretia." Note that Mary is shown here as being under the age of 16....."..to be under the care of my wife until they are age 21, unless she marry, then only to age 16...".

 

She was married to William ANDERSON on 15 JUL 1698 in Henrico County, Virginia. Lic. granted 15 JUL 1698, Henrico County, Virginia.

Shown in 1608-1808 Henrico County, VA, Marriages by Lindsay as being the marriage date as well? William ANDERSON was born before 1680.

 

She was married to Peter ROWLETT (son of Peter ROWLETT and Elizabeth) before JAN 1716. For more info on the ROWLETT family see GEDCOM in ROWLETT family file. (this includes a gedcom source unknown which goes into the descendants of Peter Rowlett Sr. in detail). Peter ROWLETT was born about 1674 in Henrico County, Virginia. He died in 1748/49. Mary LIGON and Peter ROWLETT had the following children:

 

 John ROWLETT

Thomas ROWLETT I believe this person has a descendancy that appears to be like this... Thomas (1700-?) & ?

        John Rowlett (1735-?) & Polly Edith Jackson (1739-?)

                William (1760-?) and Jemima Owen (1765-?)

                        Nancy (1787-1871)

Joseph ROWLETT.

WIlliam ROWLETT. 

Martha Francis ROWLETT

 

Sarah ROWLETT was born in 1711 in Henrico County, Virginia.

_____________________________________________

I have found this note to be in error.  William Ligon in his will left the land to be divided between his daughter Mary and his and wife Mary's unborn daughter Lucretia.  The 1716 abstract that says Mary and Lucretia have agreed to divide the land and that Peter Rowlet who married Mary consents.  The abstracct has errors in it , saying, "the child she went" with refering to the daughter when it was the wife.  think the abstractor was thoroughly confused by the deed and and I suspect that the Mary Ligon that Peter married was the mother of Mary and Lucretia and that she and Peter were consenting in the division of the land. Clarification of this issue will requuire examination of the original of court document on page 137 of Henrico Book 1714-1718.

 

       

Children of William Anderson and Mary Ligon are:

        17               i.    Reynard5 Anderson1, born Abt. 1700 in Prince George County, Virginia1.

 

Notes for Reynard Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

       The existence of this man is assumed from the entry in Virginia Patents of a Reynard Anderson in 1724 listed on Bailey's Run, P. G. Co., adj. William Crawley, William Batts, this was in the area of William's land and I therefore assign Reynard as a son of William.

 

 

+      18              ii.    John Anderson, born Abt. 1705 in Prince George County, Virginia; died 1766 in Amelia County, Virginia.

        19             iii.    Robert Anderson, born Abt. 1710.

Notes for Henry Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

        Henry Anderson was born near Bailey's Creek just east of current Petersburg, Virginia to Reynard Anderson and Elizabeth Skiffen. He inherited 250 acres of his fathers lands in 1690 while still underage and took possession of them before the 1704 rent roll which indicates that he was born before 1683.

        Henry was a friend and part time Overseer for William Byrd,II for Byrd's lands at the falls of the Appomattox River. William Byrd's diaries contain references to Henry reporting to William Byrd after William's return from a voyage to London in 1715.  He was sometimes referred to as Hal Anderson in Byrd's secret diary. A few notes of interest can be found therein.  By 1716 he was developing 500 acres above the falls of the Appomatox River on the north side near Wintopock Creek.  His first wife Prudence is named as dower in a Henrico County Deed and as Prudence Anderson in her mother's will.

In Reply to: Edward Anderson 1749-1806 ChesterfieldVA by Patrick Anderson  of 14923 

 

 

My great-great-great grandfather was an Edward Anderson of Chesterfield County, Virginia. He married Amy Ann Gilliam on February 12, 1818. Amy Ann Gilliam was the daughter of Samuel Gilliam and Susannah Bolling of "Poplar Hill" in Brunswick County.

Edward Anderson and Amy Ann Gilliam had two daughters, Louisa Roberta Yates Anderson and Anne Gilliam Anderson. Louisa first married Green Hill of Dinwiddie County and second Joseph Bentley. Anne married Dr. Edwin Harvie Smith of Dinwiddie County.

 

I always heard that my Edward Anderson was a lawyer and a prominent citizen of Chesterfield County. This is about all my family knows about him because his wife died young, and my great-great grandmother, Louisa Roberta Yates Anderson Hill, was brought up by her grandmother, Susannah Bolling Gilliam, in Brunswick County.

 

Do you have any information on my Edward Anderson? Thank you.

Dear Sir,

 

I do need to make at least one correction to material I saw on your website.  I think that you misidentified the husband of Judith Anderson, a

daughter of Henry Anderson, Sheriff of Henrico Co., by his wife Prudence Stratton.  I think you called him John Powell Cocke. (editor's note: John Powell Cocke held a patent adjacent Henry Anderson Judith's father in central Amelia county and is an apparently undocumented brother of James Powell Cocke]

 

Actually, I believe he was someone else entirely.

 

From June Court, 1739, Henrico Co., VA

 

p. 84, John NAsh and Brazure Cocke, Gent., securities of Judith Cocke, administrator for the estate of William Cocke, setting forth they have

cause to believe the estate would be embezzled, ask to be relieved. Francis Redford, who hath married said Judith, comes into court and brings John Redford, Gent., and John Stuart, who give security in administration of estate.

 

Then, this from the Cocke family history I mentioned earlier.

 

from Goochland County Court May 173?.  (Order Book 7, p. 402)

 

Jordan vs. Cocke.  William Cocke, his life time was possessed of 4 negroes as his own, one of which was a slave named in the declaration in this suit; William Cocke died sometime about the year 1736 leaving issue 2 children (one was name Judith, by the way), infants, said infants both dying not more than 8 years old; at death of said infants said negroes descended to Sarah, wife of Thomas Jordan,  Temperance, wife of Abraham Bailey, Mary, wife of John Redford, sisters and co-heiresses of said William Cocke and John Burton Jr. son and heir of Catherine, then deceased, late wife of John Burton, said Catherine being a sister of said William Cocke.  Sarah, wife of the plaintiff (i.e. Thomas Jordan) in this suit was at the time of her intermarriage with the said plaintiff, the widow and relict of one William

Cox, and that said William Cox died before the death of the infants of aforesaid William Cocke.  The defendant in this suit, John Cox, is son and heir at law to said William Cox by the said Sarah,...etc.

 

This William Cocke, who died in Henrico Co. c. 1736 was more than likely the husband of Judith Anderson, as you can see.  They had two small children who died at an early age.  The widow Judith Anderson Cocke remarried to Francis Redford, probably a brother of the John Redford who had married William Cocke's sister Mary.  There is also some evidence that Judith Anderson was married to a Stuart prior to her marriage to William Cocke.  In any case, the person who wrote the Cocke history thought her maiden name was Stuart.  This William Cocke and the multiple sisters mentioned earlier were the children of William Cocke (1670--1717) by Sarah Perrin.  William, Sr was the brother of the  Thomas Cocke, d. 1707 (wife Mary Brazier, Frances -----) who was father to my Brazure Cocke.   So Brazure Cocke and William Cocke m. Judith Anderson were first cousins.

        Eight children of James Anderson have been identified.  All are named in his will.  The family record appears to be complete.  Elizabeth Anderson, marries George Bagley,Sr. a neighbor. Two of James' grandsons marry daughters of George Bagley,Jr.  The daughter Mary Anderson marries a Martin, likely to be George Martin to whom James,II sells land in 1753, 1768 and gives additional land in his will of 1773. The Martin's witness the will of George Bagley, Sr.  The daughter Mason Anderson marries Peter Knight brother of Charles Knight the appraiser of James' estate.  Charles Knight is listed close with Elizabeth Anderson, James' widow, in the 1785 Amelia land tax rolls.  The daughter Frances Anderson is claimed by others to have married James Grigg,Sr.  She is listed as deceased in her fathers will. He states that her heirs should have no part of his estate.  However if she is the child of Elizabeth Ligon she could not have been born before 1715 or so, she either married a later Grigg or is possibly the daughter of an earlier wife of James Anderson.  The daughter Elizabeth was also born very early and I suspect as well that she was a daughter of the first wife if there was one.

        The exact date of death is unknown.

        The will of James Anderson is filed in Amelia County, Virginia Will Book 3 on page 36.  There is no probate given.  All of the early entries of this book are absent any probate statements by the court clerk.  I suspect that the entries may be a later (still 18th century) recopy of a damaged book, and that there may be a single clerk's certification to be found at the end of the recopied data.

        Also mentioned are the negroes York, Diner, Jerry, and Jesse.  It is important to note the slave named York, as he lives to a generous old age and provides a viable method for tracking this James through the Amelia and Nottoway tax rolls.  He later establishes certainty as to the proper identity of Charles Anderson in the tax rolls. In addition he was given to Elizabeth, widow of James until her death.

 

In the name of God Amen June the 14th one thousand seven hundred and seventy three I James Anderson of the County of Amelia and Parish of Nottoway being in a low state of health in body but perfect in mind and calling to mind the uncertainty of this present state & that it is appointed for all men to die, do make & ordain this my last will and testament that is to say, principally I give and recommend my soul into the hands of God Almighty that gave it me, and as for anybody I desire it may be buried in a Christian like manner at the discretion of my Executors not doubting I shall receive the same as general resurrection by the power of God and as touching such wordly estates wherewith it hath pleased God to bless me with in this life I give devise and dispose of the same in following manner & Form    Inprincis I lend my dearly beloved wife Elizabeth Anderson during her natural life the following Negroes named York, Dinar, Jery & Jesse also all my household goods & stock of hogs and Cattle.

     The inventory (abridged) and appraisal of James Anderson's estate appears on page 53 of Amelia Will Book 3.  It is dated 10/20/1781 and is notable for the inflated values assigned to the goods at the time of the revolution.  Charles Anderson is listed as the Executor and Wm Watson, Henry Anderson, and Charles Knight are listed as appraisers.

 

 

Notes for Elizabeth Ligon:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

        Broddie gives the name of James,II wife as Elizabeth Ligon.

        Elizabeth Ligon, who married an Anderson, is referred to in Genealogies of Virginia Families, Volume III, page 503. It does not give the Christian name of the Anderson and states her birth date as 1701.  She is listed as the daughter of Thomas Ligon. James Anderson files and persues a claim to her inheritance which is documented in Barton's Colonial decisions.

        Elizabeth probably dies about 1780-81 precipitating the clearing up of James Anderson,Sr. estate.  In particular, the name of York appears in her sons will of 1781 and as York was given unto Elizabeth until her death, I have assumed that she dies before this time.

Notes for Frances Anderson:

The daughter Frances Anderson is claimed by some others to have married James Grigg,Sr.  She is listed as deceased in her fathers will. He states that her heirs should have no part of his estate, " I also desire that my daughter Frances Grigg Dec'd heirs have no part of my estate than what I gave my said daughter in her life time."  However if she is the child of Elizabeth Ligon she could not have been born before 1718 or so.

Pat, thought I would provide some feedback to you on my research to date re my research into james mitchell.  As a reminder, I am looking for parents of the mary ligon who m. peter stainback c1785 & was investigating to see if she may have been a dau of Robert ligon & sarah cary Mitchell, dau of james Mitchell.  Robert & sarah were m. 1769 in amelia

 

Have now looked at all of abstracted Amelia co records plus some original records. 

 

1. james Mitchell is on Amelia co tithe lists for 1736, 37, 38, 47, 48, 49, 52, 53, 54, 55, 62, 63, 64 [based on abstracted records] & 1768 [looking at original records]. 

2. Amelia co records indicate james Mitchell was in amelia for at least some of the years he was not on tithe lists; need to look at original lists to see

3. in 1741, james Mitchell was "of Goochland" when he sold land in Amelia.  This fits with tithe lists, but he is not in any of abstracted Goochland co records

4. in 1768, james Mitchell was responsible for tithes on Anderson and James Mitchell.  Also on tithe list & names adjacent to james were john Mitchell with slave George and Thomas Mitchell, who was also responsible for Richard Mitchell. 

Will of james Mitchell shows john & james were his sons.  Believe Thomas was the orphan of walter Mitchell who was bound out in 1758.  suspect Richard was also a son of walter

in 1753 mary, Richard, and Isaac Mitchell were bound out to charles irby, no parents listed.  However, a john Mitchell d c1752.  john was m. to ann & in 1752 james Mitchell sold land that had been patented by john Mitchell.  Abstracted record does not say how james Mitchell obtained title

so, were the Mitchell kids in 1753 entry children of john?

5. james Mitchell had 2 wives.  In 1741 and 1746 wife sarah relinquished her dower when james sold land.  By October 1747, james Mitchell was m. to ann cocke, dau of james powell cocke

6. Anderson Mitchell was living with james Mitchell in 1768 & witnessed marriage bond of Robert ligon & sarah cary Mitchell.  Had originally thought he was son of james & ann cocke - info you send showed a cocke-anderson marriage, so that works.  But no longer sure. It is also possible Anderson was son of john & ann [maiden name unknown] Mitchell

7. do not know where james [or john d c1752] came from or where james and sarah were married.  Interestingly, a miles and henry cary were living in Goochland in 1730s & 1740s.  but there is no indication either had a dau named sarah or had a dau who m. a Mitchell.  But interestingly, c1800 a cary Mitchell married in Goochland

so . . . suspect sarah cary Mitchell was dau of sarah, first wife of james Mitchell.  They may have been m. in Goochland & james may have lived with sarah's family for a couple of years in Goochland

about as far as I have gotten, but since you have collected info on james Mitchell, thought you may be interested

In 1767 William appears to have 3 slaves inherited from Dr. John's estate. This same William has 884 acres in 1764 and appears on 2 lists for that year. On Benj. Ward's list with Dr. John, and list of Wood Jones, probably were property  was located. William sold property in 1764 by 3 deeds, at least one property seems to have been from John HERBERT, possibly John HERBERT of Chesterfield Co, VA whose Will of 4 - 20 - 1760 said, ."..to brother William ANDERSON ....tract of land in Amelia Co, VA "

Notes for John Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

The existence of this man and his association with William is assumed from the entry in the Bristol Parish register for the birth of Amy Anderson and the record in the Virginia Land Patents that John Anderson was adj. Richard Herbert in 1728.  This was in the area of his father William's lands. _______________________________

Hi Patrick,

 

I have tracked my ANDERSON line back to Charles ANDERSON, who bought land in Nottoway Parish, Amelia Co, VA, in Sep. 1774, on Tom Hitton (Tomihetton) Creek  (see Amelia Co, VA Deed Bk. 13, pg 57)  Charles moved to Pittsylvania Co, VA about 1802  (see Pittsylvania Co, VA Deed Bk 13, pg 272) and died there about 1827 (Pittsy. Co, VA Will Bk 1, pg115) one DAR application say he was born " Edinburg, Scotland  5 May 1750 "  and died "Pittsylvania Co, VA 23 Oct 1829 (sic) " Others, say he was born 1752 Nottoway Co, VA

The 1880 Census for only living sons of Charles, Samuel Richardson  ANDERSON stated his father was born "Scotland", and Edward B. ANDERSON stated his father was born "England"

 

I suspect Charles is the son of John ANDERSON who died in  Raleigh Parish, Amelia Co, VA in 1766. John's inventory, dated 10 Oct 1766, lists slaves - (female) Dol, Pat, Jude & Sarah  (male) Jammy, Harry, Seth, Watt, Robin, Ben, Tom & Bob John willed slaves, Roben, Sarah & Bob to his son, William and gave rest of his estate to his son, Charles. in the 1778 tithe list for  Nottoway Parish, Amelia Co, VA there are 2 Charles ANDERSON's listed. One is Charles ANDERSON (James, James, Reynard) who married Lucy STOKES, and the other Charles, ( I suspect is living on Tomihetton Creek ) lists slaves - Harry, Jude, Doll, Cate, Patt, Watt, Tom & Amy

 

 

 

        20.  Ann5 Anderson (Henry4, Reynard3, "South Side"2, "Colonial Virginia"1)4 was born Abt. 1705 in Henrico County, Virginia4, and died Bef. 1742.  She married Benjamin Ward4, son of Seth Ward and Anne Hatcher.  He died 1732 in Henrico County, Virginia4.

        22.  Henry5 Anderson (Henry4, Reynard3, "South Side"2, "Colonial Virginia"1)4 was born Abt. 1708 in Henrico County, Virginia4, and died 1753 in Amelia County, Virginia4.  He married Elizabeth Crawforth4 Abt. 17324, daughter of Ralph Crawforth and Elizabeth Claiborne.  She was born Abt. 1710.

 

Notes for Henry Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

 

He is the son of Henry Anderson of Henrico County, Virginia.

     He was probably born during the period that Henry Anderson was resident at Bailey's creek near Petersburg and was acting as overseer for William Byrd,II near the falls of the Appomattox River.  His father did not patent aditional lands until 1717.

     Elizabeth Crawford(th) was the daughter of Ralph Crawford(th) and her mother married Henry's father after Ralph's death.  There is a new Claiborne family book out which details the connection.

     Henry patents lands south of the Appomattox along Knibb's Creek adjacent to the later patents of his father.  His father's lands were across the Appomattox River in Henrico, later Chesterfield County near Winterpock Creek.

 

Henry Anderson,Jr. of Henrico

09/27/1729          1737 acres          Pr. Geo. Co.

Notes for West Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

I also suspect that Henry ANDERSON Jr. (Henry, Henry, Reynard) was the eldest son, as he appears first on the tithe lists (1751/2) followed by a John 1762/3 (earlier lists missing), a Francis 1763 and a West ANDERSON on 1764 list, when they turned 21 years of age, all in Henry Jr. "household". Francis and West ANDERSON appear nearby in separate "households" in later years but I can't find John after 1763.

These pages contain several petitions and numerous affidavits on behalf of

Ralph Crawforth Anderson.  It starts May 2, 1792 with a petition of Henry

Anderson and Francis Anderson on behalf of  their brother, Ralph Crawforth

Anderson, to the judges of Clarksburg, the General Court, sitting in the

district of Richmond, Virginia.  Ralph Anderson was sentenced to die by

the District Court of Richmond for the murder of a William Green.

 

Enclosed in the above papers were numerous affidavits as to the insanity

of Mr. Ralph Anderson and petitions for his pardon.  Page 533 of the above

source tells us the outcome:

 

"At a District Court held in Richmond the 12th day of April, 1792, Ralph

Crawford Anderson, labourer, late of the county of Chesterfield, who stands

convicted of murder, was sentenced by the Court to be hanged by the Sheriff

of Henrico County, on Friday the Eighteenth day of May next, between the

hours of ten in the forenoon and two in the afternoon of the same day."

Notes for Frances Anderson:

"A Catalog of the Descendants of Thomas Watkins of Chickahominy, Va.",by Francis N. Watkins, 1899. says that Thomas Watkins married a Miss Anderson.

 

From "Some Watkins Families of Virginia" by John Hale Stutesman

re:  Thomas Watkins of Chickahominy

 

"Chickahominy Tom" married Frances Anderson, daughter of Henry and Prudence (Stratton) Anderson of Wintopock Creek in what is now Chesterfield County.

Thomas farmed his father's land in southeastern Henrico County and he reached out for new lands in what are now Charlotte and Prince Edward Counties.  In 1746, Thomas and "Frances his wife" sold some land in Henrico County.  In 1752, "Thomas Watkins Junr." bought 773 acres "on south side of Chickahominy Swamp."  He would remain on that land in northeastern Henrico County close to the Bottom's Bridge crossing of the Chickahominy for the rest of his life,...

Dear Patrick,

 

How I enjoyed reading your research work for the various families on the Gen Forum site.  Many of the names and places seemed so familiar, it was like visiting with old friends!  My passion for genealogy goes back for over thirty five years, but my computer experience, only since this past January.  I  have found much and met many new cousins and delightful enthusiasts, but still am a firm believer in library study. I have amassed so much that of course there are just as many relations a'waving in the winds, and I feel badly that my work on the Bagleys has included only preliminary work. I found you last night rather by chance...it was quite late and I was getting fuzzy, but sat up  awake when I realized that you had the same names as some of my remembered finds. I have a couple of items to add to your George and Elizabeth Anderson Bagley family.

 

First I noted that you had the daughter Mary of George and Elizabeth and George Junior and Judith Knight as having married Richard Ligon.

I have a marriage for a Mary Bagley that I believe is for the first Mary.....Mary Bagley married Taylor Pamplin Lee...28 March 1765, Amelia

County, Virginia....found it on the IGI. (editors note, this is the third Mary Bagley marriage that occurred in a few years.)

 

James Bagley, son of George and Judith Knight Bagley married Rachel Crenshw.....8 April 1789, Amelia Co., VA.  He and sister Elizabeth kept that household merry with their marriages one day apart.  James Crenshaw gave consent..Robert Crenshaw and John Bagley served as witnesses...they were married by John Finnley.   this found in the Valentine Papers by Torrance.

 

As for your questioning the marriage of James Bagley to Dicy....some time ago I found in "18th Century Virginia Newspapers":

 

Donald Family, Nottoway Co., Ct of Q>S>, 3 May 1798: Thomas Pennix. ex. of

Upon reading this will it appears that George's daughter Mary did marry William Ligon.

 

As for the Pennex/Penick name.....I have a letter from 1996....Nancy Penick McGee was the daughter of Judith Penick and Abraham McGehee.  Judith was born 1765, Prince Edward, VA.  Among her siblings was a sister, Elizabeth/Betsy b. 1769, who married Robert Bagby...from Buckingham Co. VA. The Pennex, Bagley/Begleys Boram and McGehees seem to be linked.

 

Virginia Revolutionary Publick Claims/Abercrombe and Slatten:

 

show Bagley, Anderson, Dicey, George, Henry, Jeremiah, and Thomas....Dicey

and George are on p 35 for Amelia...Dicey for 2 beeves (beef) 600

pounds...Sept..

 

I have an odd page photocopied by someone from an old record, which

reads..."William P. Borum...Marriage Bond...Arthur Bagbey....Nov. 20 1837.

 

 

Now...for my Bagleys:

 

My grandmother, Margaret Bagley, married Elias Kidd, 11 Feb. 1804, Tazewell

County, Virginia.  She was born 10 April 1794, Virginia, and died 20 Sept.

1867, Casey County, Kentucky.

 

Elias was the son of William Kidd of the Middleses County, Virginia Kidds.

This family lived in Middlesex for 100 years until the era of the Revolution

when they settled in Amelia, Buckingham and Fluvanna Counties.  My  William

finally settled in Montgomery County, Virginia where he served in that

county's Militia.  Serving there also were the Bagleys:

 

Henry, Thomas, John and Henry Jr. or "Harry".  ..    all in Thomas Ingle's

company of April 1781.  Henry Senior was listed as "an old man" and excused

from duty.

 

I note that the Kidds were in an area of Montgomery County that was later to

become Tazewell County...all of the sons of Elias were married in that

county.

 

As a part of Montgomery was Powhatan County....dying there c 1790 was Henry

Bagby, who left a will naming, sons John, Daniel, James, and daughters

Sarah, Susannah, Theodosha, Rebecca and an daughter deceased and her husband

Henry Bagby.

 

From Kegley's work I found: Henry Begley, born 4 March 1756, Hampshire Co,

VA..died Morgan County, TN..."lived near Montgomery/Wythe Counties served in

Revolution...this from Revolutionary War Pension Applications of SW

Virginia.

 

"His brother William Begley saw him received his discharge and Moses

ANDERSON  was present when he returned to his father's house in Wythe

County.

 

Thomas Begly/Bagley married Nancy Cox, 29 July 1786, Montgomery Co.,

VA....the Cox family were kin to my later Kidds....all ended up in Kentucky

after the Kidd sons married.

 

And as we hang on to "conincidence".....My William Kidd is thought to have

married a Jones.  Noted your interest in that name.

 

Later on in Kentucky....Wayne, Casey, Whitley Counties...the Kidds married

with the Gregory family.

 

And last but not least....I am intrigued with you listing for "Pouncey

Anderson"....Pouncey is not a common name.  My Pounceys were in Old Cheraws,

South Carolina....Anthony Pouncey et all.

 

Delilah Pouncey married Light Townsend.....my grandparents....the Townsends

were from early Virginia and Maryland.  Then from South Carolina went to

Georgia, Florida and finally Texas, where many of the family live

today.....also married into the Stapletons.

 

I have thrown alot of names at you...hoping to find a lead.....I would

suppose that my Margaret may have been a daughter of "Old Henry

Bagley"...she and Elias did not name a son Henry or Thomas....did use James,

which was not a family name of Elias's close Kidd family.

 

Their son, James Fenton Kidd's daughter, Rebecca Elizabeth Kidd was my great

grandmother....she married Isaac Lewis Buck...they the parents of my

paternal grandfather, James Buck....this James no doubt taken from the Buck

connection to James Denton.

 

Oh, almost forgot.....the SEAY name.....the Seays married into my Kidds in

the early years of Virginia.

 

Hoping all is well with you.....yours, Joan.

Notes for Charles Anderson:

[Reynard.ftw]

        Charles is named in the wll of his father James Anderson as; " Item I give and bequeath to my son Charles Anderson to him & his heirs forever the land & plantation whereon I now live also the above lent Negroes Dianr Jerry & Jesse they & their increase from this present date aster the death of my wife also the above lent hogs cattle & household furniture after the death of my wife.', and as: "I do hereby constitute ordain & appoint my sons James Anderson & Charles Anderson the executors of this my last will & testament..."

The inventory (abridged) and appraisal of James Anderson's estate appears on page 53 of Amelia Will Book 3.  It is dated 10/20/1781 and is notable for the inflated values assigned to the goods at the time of the revolution.  Charles Anderson is listed as the Executor and Wm Watson, Henry Anderson, and Charles Knight are listed as appraisers.

        Charles Anderson inherits the bulk of his fathers estate and with his wife Lucy Stokes engages in a lively exchange of properties eventually selling all to Richard Broaddus on 10/27/1798 and moving lock, stock and barrel with many of the James Anderson descendants to Mason County, Kentucky.

Pat,

 

Mason Co., Ky in 1800 included all of Pike Co., Ky.  This is why I believe that one of the Charles Andersons listed is the one in my line.  By 1820, when this area was part of Floyd Co., Ky, there was only one Charles Anderson.  This one is definitely my line.  I don't know if there is a connection or not.  I believe that Charles may have come to Kentucky through Virginia, from North Carolina.

 

Was your Mason Co. Charles a Baptist minister.  I found records of a Charles Anderson who was a minister at Lees Creek between 1799 and 1807.

Dear Pat, Thank you very, very much for the information on Charles Anderson. I am not an Anderson descendant, but I do gather information on Virginia Baptist ministers who served during the period 1760-1790 and there is nothing, but nothing, on him at the Virginia Baptist Historical Society.

 

Of the two men named Charles Anderson whom you included, I feel almost certain that the Baptist minister was the Charles Anderson, born about 1730, died 1821. His daughter, Susanna, married John Walton, a son of Simeon Walton. Charles Anderson and Simeon Walton were converted to the Baptist denomination in 1769 and were baptized into Nottoway Church (also called Amelia Church), Nottoway County. They seemed to have served together at Nottoway Church until about 1778, when Anderson "planted" (founded) Anderson's Meeting House in what is today Cumberland County. There are no extant records for Anderson's Meeting House (or for Nottoway Church, for that matter), but, again, I feel certain that Anderson served as the minister of it from 1778-1795, when it ceased to exist. Anderson's Meeting House was the scene of two significant meetings of the Virginia Separate Baptist Association (in 1778 and 1781) and one of the Baptist General Committee (in 1786), indicating that the church was a major player in Baptist activities at that time (and, probably, a reasonably central location).

 

Simeon Walton moved to Bracken County (KY) in 1795 and died there in 1798. Charles Anderson moved to Mason County (KY) in 1798, soon after the death of Simeon Walton.

 

A big favor: would it be possible to obtain a list of the descendants of James Anderson, father of Rev. Charles Anderson?

 

I will begin to search Mason County records to see if I can figure out exactly where in Mason County Charles Anderson was buried.

 

Sincerely, and thank you again,

The son John Anderson lives along Woody Creek and dies leaving a widowed daughter, an unmarried daughter and a son who dies shortly thereafter. The complexities surrounding this estate result in court action of later interest.  He is the Anderson ancestor of the southern poet Sydney Lanier.

Patrick,

 

Cousin Betsy has come through again.  She found a deed which stated, "Peter Knight and Mason his wife of Lunenburg County..." (Lunenburg Co., VA Deed Book 14, p. 358-359).   I think it's safe to assume that she was the former Mason Anderson.

 

 Confirmation of Charles Knight, Sr.'s wife was found in Nottoway Co. Order Book 8, p. 234: A land transfer in 1819 (about the time Charles Sr. died) - "A deed from Charles Knight, Senr. and Mary his wife to Charles Knight, Jr...."  We think Mary's last name was Smith, but I don't know where this came from.

 

Stay in touch,

Ken

I have a Tarlton Knight who is the son of Peter Knight and Coleman Mason Anderson. Do you have any information on your Tarlton's siblings. If so, I am interested in any information you might have about Tarlton's sister, Nancy Knight (b. 1760) who married Coleman Knight and who was the mother of Charner Hopson Knight. The Tarlton Knight I have may be too old to fit with the children that you list, in which case you may want to look at him as a father of your Tarlton. I have no information about his descendants.

Thanks,

Notes for James Anderson:

        James Anderson,Jr. is difficult to distinguish from his father as he too was married to an Elizabeth.  For the most part any reference to James Anderson,Jr. after 1755 can be attributed to him.  He dies in Amelia County, shortly after his father in 1782, and leaves his widow with only two children of age.

        I ordered a microfilm from the Family History Center of Will Book 1 of Nottoway County, VA. I found the following will for a Henry Anderson on page 156,  written on 6 Nov 1794 probated 7 Jan 1796.  This is just the basics abstracted from the will:

Children: James, Henry, Paulin, Doshe, Aney and Patience. It appears that these are by a previous wife.

Other children: Rawlin, Garlin, Nancy

together with Darlin, son by Lucy Richardson alias Lucy Watson (who was delivered of my son Darlin in my house the tenth day of Nov 1788 and now living with his mother Lucy who manages my household business in the capacity of my housekeeper) all & every part of my estate both real & personal to be equally divided among my last mentioned four children. Names his brother John Anderson and friends Richard Bennett, Sr, Reinard Anderson, James Cook and John Gooch his exec.

        When the will was recorded Ann Anderson widow of Henry Anderson came into court and declared she would not take any provision made for her by such will and renounced all benefits.

        Sounds like this was quite a family situation. Does anyone know anything about this Anderson family? I'm also interested in Lucy Richardson, since I ordered the film primarily to find a Richardson will.

 

I am interested in anything anyone knows about these Andersons.

Dear Mr. Anderson,

 

I have come across your Entries: 8717, updated, Feb. 2, 2002, re. Colonial Virginia Anderson Families.  I have gotten my Anderson family back to about 1760 with one Henry Anderson and that is where my connections end.

 

I intend to order the microfilm from the FHC of the Will Book of Nottoway Co., VA that Linda Schmehl says she ordered regarding Henry Anderson, born 1740 in Amelia Co., Virginia (Parents, James Anderson and Elizabeth Ligon).  The fact that his first wife is not named and the fact that he has sons named Henry and James interests me very much. 

 

My Henry would have been born about 1760, and could possibly my be the grandson of the above Henry.  But, my Henry, married an Elizabeth (Betty) Mitchell, and had sons named James and Mitchell, also a daughter named Prudence.  I know that my Henry's son James started a family in Louisiana.  This James had a daughter born about 1805 named Prudence and a son named Henry born about 1809 in Louisiana.  Henry went to Montgomery Co., Arkansas and married a Sarah Collier in 1828.  Henry and Sarah Anderson of Montgomery Co. are my gggrandparents.

 

Recently, I received your info. regarding the lineage of Armstead Anderson of Kentucky and have studied it back to the early Richard Anderson.  I was unable to make any connection to my Henry born about 1760.  I think my Henry must have gotten lost in the wilderness.  I have tried everything I can think of to find a connection with a Virginia family for I am pretty sure that is where they originated.

 

My question to you is, have you by chance clarified who Henry of Amelia Co., VA's first wife may have been?  Or, do you know of anyone that might be able to shed light on who she may have been?  It is important to me, for I have been at this for years.  My mother was an Anderson, born in 1898, and spent most of her life in California.  She knew a little about her Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana ancestors, but not enough to help me.  It took me a whole year to find my gggrandfather Henry Anderson and his wife Sarah Collier for I didn't know their names.  When I found that Sarah was connected to Mary Belle Anderson Collier in Arkansas, I felt that there was a close connection to my gggrandfather Henry Anderson's family.

 

I hope that this e-mail is understandable.  I hate to impose on you as it is apparent you are very busy.  I am trying everything I can to make a connection, and I will appreciate any suggestions you might have.  Thank you.   Betty Buchmann

Dear Mr. Anderson,

 

I wrote to you some time ago regarding Henry Anderson, b. 1740, Amelia Co., VA, d. 1796, Nottoway Co., VA.  I asked you about the Will that a Linda Schmehl had found on this Henry Anderson.  You wrote me back and asked me to study the Reynard Anderson line, which I did.

 

I come from a Western family.  My g-g-grandfather was Henry Anderson, his wife's mother was Mary Bell Anderson Collier.  My g-g-grandfather Henry was the son of a James Anderson, and James was the son of a Henry Anderson.  It is this Henry Anderson's origination that I am looking for.  He ought to have been born about 1760, married about 1780, and James was born about 1780-85.  I believe they all were born in Virginia.

 

You have the Henry Anderson of Nottoway Co., VA having just one child, Catherine.  In the Will Linda Schmehl transmitted to you, ID: 107921, there are six children by a first wife (name unknown).  The first two children mentioned are a James Anderson and a Henry Anderson.  It is this Henry Anderson I am interested in.  Do you have any history on this Henry?  Did he stay in Virginia or did he leave for some other state? 

 

I know that the Henry Anderson I am looking for married an Elizabeth Mitchell the daughter of a James Mitchell.  I know you can't know the histories of every Anderson that ever lived, but you did clear up my g-g-g-grandmother Mary Bell Anderson's ancestry for me. 

 

I really would appreciate hearing from you.  If you know who the son of the Henry Anderson of Nottoway Co. is, it would help me a so much.  Thank you.

I found a file on WorldConnect that gives you as a source for information on the Ligon family.

I have been working on my Pearson line and came across information that said Elizabeth Ligon, d/o Thomas who was a son of Matthew and Elizabeth Anderson, married Sherwood Purson which was Pearson.

Later there are some deed recorded between Thomas Ligon of Charlotte Co. VA to Sherwood Pearson.  These are dated ca 1771.

Also Thomas Ligon was surety for a marriage bond between Elizabeth and Sherwood Purson.

Sherwood is thought to be the father of my Doctor Pearson, found in Franklin Co. VA on the 1820 census.  I do know that one of Doctor's sons was named Sherwood, so this is the basis of my research for now.

Do you have and records connecting the Ligon family to Sherwood Pearson?  And, would it be possible to get a file from you to help me in my research? Text, gedcom, anything?

I would greatly appreciate anything you can do to help me with my research of the Pearsons and now possible Ligon and related lines.

Hoping to hear from you,

Jean McCullough

Pat,

I wrote to you back in October requesting some info on the Ligon family but at that time was not sure of a connection.

BINGO!  I found it.  My 3rd ggf was a son of Elizabeth Ligon who married Sherwood Pearson/Peerson.  They were married on 3 Sept 1770 in Charlotte Co. VA.  I now have information from Sherwood's will wherein he names as a son "Doctor" Pearson/Peerson, along with his wife Elizabeth and other children.  A researcher has copied the will and it is being mailed to me today.

If you have any information that might help me with the Ligon family I would appreciate it.  From what I can gather off the internet, Elizabeth was a daughter of Thomas and wife Ann Unknown.  Thomas was a son of Matthew and Elizabeth Anderson.  Any help on the connecting families such as Anderson, Harris, Worsham, etc.  would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Jean McCullough

I also suspect that Henry ANDERSON Jr. (Henry, Henry, Reynard) was the eldest son, as he appears first on the tithe lists (1751/2) followed by a John 1762/3 (earlier lists missing), a Francis 1763 and a West ANDERSON on 1764 list, when they turned 21 years of age, all in Henry Jr. "household". Francis and West ANDERSON appear nearby in separate "households" in later years but I can't find John after 1763.

I also suspect that Henry ANDERSON Jr. (Henry, Henry, Reynard) was the eldest son, as he appears first on the tithe lists (1751/2) followed by a John 1762/3 (earlier lists missing), a Francis 1763 and a West ANDERSON on 1764 list, when they turned 21 years of age, all in Henry Jr. "household". Francis and West ANDERSON appear nearby in separate "households" in later years but I can't find John after 1763.

 

       

Children of John Anderson and ? are:

+      187             i.    Elizabeth7 Anderson, born Abt. 1758 in Amelia County, Virginia; died Abt. 1800.

        190           iv.    Frances Anderson, born Abt. 1770 in Amelia County, Virginia.  She married Daniel Vasser January 10, 1789 in Amelia County, Virginia.

Patrick,

I am collecting more info on Henry.  Seems like my Henry died between 1850 -

1856.  Let me tell you what I know now.. There was a Richard G. Anderson that

settled his estate. (Abt. 1857)  Value put on estate in Sept. 25, 1856 was

$30,778.24 according to Amelia County WB 17, pages 493-496.  Also, this Henry

went by Henry Anderson, Sr.  He also gave some land away in his will and one

side of land boundary was Beaver Pond.  (This should help me tract this Henry's

daddy.)  He also mentioned a Booker boy, the son of a William L. Booker.  Any

thoughts?

You are right.  My research people tell me my line is here: 

 

Francis4 Anderson (Henry3, Henry2, Reynard1) was born Bet. 1733 - 1753, and

died

1793 in Amelia County, Virginia.

This Francis had a son named Henry who went around, (When he became of age)

freeing slaves.  His first order of business in 1806 was to free a slave name

Besty and her five children. [See Deed Book 22-page 197 - 14 April 1806].  I

suspect these are all of Henry's children.  [Souce: wills & deeds]

One of those five children, Francis, is my g g grandfather.

Thanks for your help.

 

Paul David

Hi, From the Watkins Genealogy I have that Frances Anderson married Thomas Watkins.  Is this correct?  Their daughter Sally Watkins married John Spencer, son of Thomas Spencer.  The DAR has accepted both Thomas and John Spencer.  Is there info on Henry Anderson?  Was his wife Prudence Stratton?  Any info on the Strattons?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Lynda Schoonover

Dear Patrick,

Thank you so much for your reply and the download file--very interesting. I've spent some time this evening going through and comparing/cross checking, etc.

Do you have any more detail on Columbus E. Yarborough (what is the "E", for instance? Who did he marry, any issue, when did he die?}

Unfortunately, I do not have my file in "transportable" condition at the moment, but am working on that and will be happy to share what I do have.

In the meantime, could we compare notes on the "little bit" of your file that I have started comparing?

1) Am hoping that I'll be able to find a copy of A Copy of the Descendants of Thomas Watkins of Chickahominy, VA. We live in Daytona Beach and the nearest really great library is Orlando--don't get there too often these days but am compiling a long list of look-ups for my next visit.

2) Thank you for the complete (or additional) list of the issue of Thomas Yarbrough and Jenny Spencer.  I only had Thomas H. on my file.  Would you please tell me the source of your data on Nancy B., John S. and Christopher C. and their spouses.

3) In reviewing my copy of the will of John Spencer (April 18,1827) he named:

        sons, Thomas C.; Henry Spencer; and

        daughters, Frances A. ALLEN [your file shows Jesse Winfrey];

                         Jenny (Jane) Yarbrough; and Elizabeth Julia Todd [thanks for John                                 Todd's given name].

There were several other names, new to me, in your file:

        COLE for the C. in Thomas' name;

        Frances Pearce as his wife;

        Sally Bouldin as the wife of Henry.

 Do you have sources for those?]

4) As I mentioned earlier, have only "scanned" the file, but am chuckling at the reference to "Hal" Anderson being friend and part time Overseer for William Byrd.

My 8th g-grandfather, Jean Jacques Marot (who founded Shields Tavern in Williamsburg, VA) was friend and secretary to Gov. William Byrd of VA) so now I have to add Secret Diary of William Byrd to my list of look-ups.

 

That's about as far as I was able to get tonight.  Scanning rapidlly over the balance I can see that we have much similar data on the Watkins line--I have nothing on the Anderson line. But, I do have a great deal on the Flournoy line for Elizabeth Julia Flournoy Spencer, mother of John Spencer.

 

The same evening I wrote to you, I also contacted by e-mail three other desdendants of Thomas Henry Yarbrough--one, the granddaughter of the sister of my husband's grandmother lives about twenty miles from us!!  Hopefully, with contact with the three, we will be able to fill in more data on THY and the two Elizas.

With regards,

Gerry

So, Patrick, you and my wife are distant cousins at least through the Jones/Crawley

line. Her Great great Grandfather, Dr. John Fitzgerald married one of Catherine Crawley Ward Jones' daughters, Martha Jones. They had Jack Fitzgerald, who had Patrick Henry Fitzgerald who had Horace Fitzgerald who was my wife's Daddy.

Small world.  Remind me never to disparage any family (again) as they might be related to my wife.

Hi Patrick,

          Just wanted to thank you for connecting some of my genealogical dots.

          It seems that Elizabeth Trent, daughter of Anne Anderson and Alexander Trent IV, married Mathew Wilson, son of Benjamin Wilson Sr. and Mary Anne Seay.

          Together they produced my great-great-grandfather, Samuel Wilson, in 1811 at Barter Hill, the family home in Cumberland, VA.

          Samuel’s wife, Cornelia Williamson McLaurine, wrote a family register of sorts in 1890 mentioning Alexander Trent, but not Elizabeth’s mother, Anne Anderson.

          So thank you for connecting this dot!  Your website is great.

                                                          Thanks again,

                                                               Nora

Notes for Alexander Trent:

Barbara, this was sent to me years ago on a typewritten sheet with the notation: "from Mrs. Pratt's Records:"

(She was writing here of Alexander, son of Alexander and Ann (Anderson) Trent, who was born 18 Nov. 1786, died 6 March 1873, and married 1807 to Mary W. Wilson.)

 

"Children of Alexander Trent and Mary W. Wilson:

 

1. Nancy Anderson Trent m. Dr. Wm. Perkins Moseley of Wheatland, Buckingham Co. She was b. Aug. 1808 d. 17 Dec. 1891. He was b. 31 May 1794, d. 2 April 1863.

2. James Wilson Trent m. Nannie Meredith. 6 children

3. Emeline Francis Trent m. Dr. Bryce M. Pratt of Skowhegan, Me.

Children:

i. Dr. Whitcomb E. Pratt m. Florence Moseley

ii. Mary Wilson Pratt m. Judge Chas. L. Gibbs of Arkansas

Children:

Bryce P. Gibbs of Va.

Lette Gibbs

iii. Alex. Trent Pratt, died single

4. Sally Trent

5. Mary Eliz. Trent

 

Children of Alexander and Elizabeth Meade Randolph m. Oct. 18, 1837 daughter of Isham Randolph:

 

6. Julia Randolph Trent b. 10 Nov. 1841 m. 1867 J. Taylor Gray who died 1876. Issue: Gray 6 children

7. John Trent

8. Mary Trent

9. Anna Trent

10. Edward Trent

 

Note: Mary Wilson b. 1790"

 

So I guess that John Cary Page, Jr. married his cousin, Julia, after she was widowed.

 

 

 

        280           iii.    Marianne Trent, born October 26, 1790; died January 10, 1877.  She married John Cary Page October 18, 1808 in Cumberland County, Virginia.

Hi Patrick,

 

I received your Frances Bagley file and it made my day! You have a great

database there. I didn't have any trouble reading it. I am slowly transferring

it over to my ancestral family tree. Your data goes back to the early 1600's,

but I did not notice where your ancestors originated from. Did I miss it? My

line goes from Dickerson and Frances Jennings to Betsey Jennings their daughter.

Do you have anything on Betsey? I know she married Peter Stern on January 3,

1791, in Charlotte County. I have requested some info from a genealogist in that

County, but have heard nothing yet. I am curious about your database. I assume

you called up Frances Bagley, and your program identified her as Generation 1,

and then printed out all her ancestors. Is this right? Works real good! Thanks

very much for your information. Can I do something for you?
