The History Of The Anderson Family

I have information on the Anderson family starting

with John Anderson and spanning four plus generations .

This family ties with the

Cummings family through the marriage

of my mother, Mary Alice Evans, to Carl E Cummings,Sr.

My ggreat grandmother was Louisa Abegail Anderson.

This is in progress and any help would be appreciated.

Descendants of John Anderson

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN1 ANDERSON was born 1740 in Scotland,

and died 1794 in Walnut Creek, NC. He married

CHARITY WATSON 1761, daughter of JOHN WATSON.

Notes for JOHN ANDERSON:

The surname Anderson , according to L G Pine,

means " Son of Andrew" or "Servant of St. Andrew",

implying devotion to St. Andrew, the patron

saint of Scotland. The Scottish people were

Roman Catholic before the Protestant Reformation

and Presbyterian afterward. The Scottish clan Anderson

has been organized to bring all Andersons together in a

kindred spirit and collect genealogical records and history

of it's members. John came to America about 1760. He arrived

in Wilmington-Fayetteville, NC area. He had other papers

recorded on page 14 in a manuscripts collection in Raleigh,NC.
