"Hunting For Bears" - Alabama marriages. Anderson McLemore married Jane Ware, 5 Sep 1837, Tallapoosa Co, AL. The bond is on FamilySearch.org and her name was plainly Jane Ware
1850 Census. Moro Twp, Dallas, AR, Hh 20
The marriage is indexed as Anderson McLenon. Other records show that his name was McLemore. When I saw the entry in the county marriage book - it was plainly McLemore.
He was age 35 in marriage record to Sally Holderness.
In the 1860 Census in Calhoun Co AR, it's evident Anderson had a previous wife. Living with him and Sallie is John McLemore age 17 and Alex age 15. Also A. McLemore, age 70, born in Alabama, a mechanic - no doubt Anderson's father. Probably NOT born in Alabama in 1790, though. Sallie's brother Algernon Sidney is also living with them.
Anderson McLemore died Dec 1, 1896. Mr. McLemore was born in the state of GA, Oct 3, 1818. He professed religion and joined the Methodist Church and was made a Mason about the same time in Chambers County, AL. He was happily married 3 times, his first wife having been Miss Jane Ward of Alabama; his second, Miss S. B. Holderness of Arkansas, and his last who survives him, Mrs. S. P. Williams, nee Miss Ashcroft. Twelve children were born to the deceased; 5 by his first wife, 3 by the second, and 4 by the third; but only 4 of these children are living - one of the the first and three of the last family. Mr. McLemore first came to Hopkins Co in 1863, returning to AR just after the Late War, but finally coming back to Hopkins Co in 1869 since which time and until his death he has been a resident of this county, having made his home for the past few years of his life in Sulphur Springs.
