Notes


[ANDERSON-L] Anderson, Lawrence, Caroline Co., VA
Date: 1/18/00 From: esta@widomaker.com (Roger and Esta Anderson)
To: ANDERSON-L@rootsweb.com


[snip of info about Lawrence senior]


My interest is John Anderson (b. 1740 - d. 1819). He lived in Drysdale Parish, Caroline Co., VA. We have found him signing Colonial Church Petitions in 1770's and he is listed many times in COLONIAL CAROLINE - A History of Caroline County, Virginia by P.E. Campbell and the book, PEOPLE, POSTOFFICE AND COMMUNITIES IN CAROLINE COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1727-1769 by Rev. Ralph Emmett Falls.


I have very little information on John Anderson, Sr. as to his family, but I do know that this ties in to the information that was furnished on Oct. 22, 1946 by Sarah Ann Anderson Wright, known as Fannie, the oldest child of Samuel Chapman Anderson - the youngest child and son of Henry and Julia Ann T. Anderson. She states that the information below was some of the things that were told by her Grandmother Julia Ann T. Anderson and some things that she knew about her great great grandfather.
Her father's grandfather was named John Anderson. He was known to be the wealthiest man in Caroline Co., VA. he owned more negroes and more land than he could enumerate. His old home in Caroline Co., VA was known by us as Watt Anderson place, situated half way between Whites Mill and Sparta in Caroline. The old Anderson burial lot is still there where so many of our ancestors are buried.


"I will try to tell you something about the children of my great great grandfather John Anderson and as much about their families as I can. I being an old person myself not, but I have a very good memory. He had a son named John Jr. who had a good many children: his daughter Fannie, wife of Tom Samuel; John Edward and Easer Anderson. There were others. This is what I know of them.


Samuel Anderson emigrated to Texas with ten young boys. I heard they lost tract of them;
Judith Anderson, wife of Billie Jordan, parents of William Jordan, who had a son named Charley
Jordan and others;
Tom Anderson - I don't know him. I only knew there was one named Tom;
Walter Anderson, father of Watt Anderson. They always lived in the old Anderson home;


My Grandfather Henry Anderson married Julia Ann T. Adkins, half sister to William George Garnett and Emoline Garnett Carter, mother of Luther Eugene Carter and others.


I will try to tell you something about my grandfather and grandmother.


Henry Anderson and Julia Ann T. Adkins were parents of the following children:


William, known as Uncle Billy Anderson, married Ailsie Pitts, parents of Burton Anderson and
grandfather of Herbert Anderson (Ruth Callown's husband and others);
Uncle Billy was wounded in the Civil War;
Mary Toliver Anderson, wife of George Goldman, parents of Pierce, Sweetie Kate and others;
John Anderson killed in the Civil War was not married;
Sarah Ann (Nannie) Anderson, wife of Elic Goldman - no children;
Catherine Kate Anderson, wife of Cornelius Minor - parents of John Goldman and William Henry Minor;
Samuel Chapman Anderson married Bettie Jane Beasley, parents of ten children:
Sarah Ann, known as Nannie Anderson Wright. Oldest child killed in First World War about 1918;
Henry Owell Anderson married Jane Dishman - 4 children;
Leticia Jane Anderson Melton, wife of Charles Melton - one son, Herbert;
Samuel Smith Anderson married Baynie Andrews - Parents of 10 children;
Katy Bet Anderson died when she was 11 yrs. old;
Mary Ellen Anderson, wife of Russell Milton. Parents of 3 children;
Jennie Earnest Anderson married Ida Samuel - 7 children;
William John Andrson married Sarah Frances (Fannie) Samuels - 10 children;
Ruth Julia Anderson married William alvis - 1 son."

Pat, As you might be aware, most of the Courthouse records in Caroline Co., VA were destroyed by fire.
I have been able to tie some of the property records together, but not sure of the same names. Still working. You have my permission to fold this information into your website.


I did find a Lawrence page on website and would appreciate your sending me the current GEDCOM of Lawrence Anderson family. I thought the information I posted was interesting since it came from Joel Anderson, Sr.'s Bible. I have additional information on dates if you are interested, but I believe you might have most of it.

Not sure about land grant,only trace what I have told, Do know that the Anderson family I am looking at was my Grandfather Samuel Chatman son of Henry who was the son of John. I am told that John was the richest man in Caroline Co.,and live in the the Watt-Anderson plantation Half way between White Mill and Sparta. Would you have any information on this family? The information I have is recorded in my family papers. John had several children,and I do not know the wife name. The children were John Jr., Henry, Samuel, Judith, Tom (called Jim Walker) Walter, Easer and Fannie? (not Sure about her). I have limited information about Henry (my GGF) and about John (MyGGGF) Can you help,or tell me ahere I can get more information? Does this make sense? Roger Anderson
