Information from Gertrude Haden has Jane Ferris & Rev. Joseph Anthony's children and descent of some of those children.
In the Fall of 1811, Jane moved to Tennessee where she lived until about 1820 when the family to moved to Madison Co Missouri. Jane stayed in Missouri only about two years and returned to Tennessee. She is said to have lived to be about 90 years old in the papers of Stella Anthony.
Jane FARRIS and Rev. Joseph ANTHONY were married on 14 August 1777 in Cumberland County, Virginia.1 Rev. Joseph ANTHONY135 died in 1806 in Henry County, Virginia.1 He was a Minister, Beaver Creek Baptist Church.14
Joseph was a Baptist preacher. This is the Baptist minister referred to in the Whitsitt book. He is apparently not kin to the Anthonys that married into the Whitsitt family.
Joseph Anthony is on the tax lists of Henry Co VA in both 1790 and 1800. Henry Co marriage records 1778-1849, found at Ancestry.com lists many marriages performed by Joseph Anthony, Minister from 1785-1803.

Copy of History of Bever Creek Church8, 1786, Henry County, Virginia. Copied & published by Mrs. J. Frank Thompson, 1933, Columbia, Mo.
Records of the Bever Creek Church, Henry Co., contain some vital records of the family. It does appear that Samuel had possession of this book of minutes after the death of his father about 1806. The church minutes date from December of 1786 when the churh was chartered to some scattered notes in 1800. Then the family data is listed and at the end is a list of expenses. Some of the expenses involve Samuel's place as guardian of his younger brothers and sister Jane following the death of their father. Some of them are in relation to Samuel's expense as administrator of the estate of his father-in-law, Richard Brittin.
