Cathy - are you Mamie Beliech's niece? Mamie was the FL (Pensacola area) branch of Anda A. (a/k/a Andy ALEXANDER) family. I also corresponded for years with Helen Carolyn (BOLDEBOOK) LEIGH who had much information on the AR branch as she descended from Alvin. Sadly, both of these descendants are dead.
I did locate Anda's marriage license in 1835 at Norwich, VT, to Susanna ROGERS. They then went to IL (Kane Co.) (1850, 1860 censuses) before moving to Escambia Co., FL. Anda was born 1815 VT, died about 1879 FL. Susan(na)(Mamie had her as McLAUGHLIN - but there was a Hugh McLAUGHLIN who I think married a daughter), anyway, Susan went west to Locust Bayou AR, with son Alvin, John Edward's brother. A sister Emeline stayed in IL and married an ENSLEY.
I would be happy to share what info I have. Please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
