Rick, for what little information that I can find, is the following 1860 Highland Grove, Glassy Mountain, Greenville, SC census page 383:Household #94George Anders 33 farmer, Juletta 32 seamstress, William 10, Sarah 7, Nancy 4, and John 2.All were born in South Carolina.
Interesting to me are the families next door.Houseshold #92 William Lindsey age 60, Juda age 60 and William age 18 all born SC.#93 Jacob Lindsey 34, Sarah 34, RILEY 9, Elizabeth 7 and Louisa 3/12.
Perhaps you are aware of the Lindsey Baker Anders, Sr. (born 1822, died 1894 Henderson Co. NC, His first wife isTempey born 1823 (age 27 on 1850 census) by whom he had three daughters and are on the 1850 Henderson Co. NC census, Margaret 1845, Elizabeth 1846,and Catherine 1847.He married second ca 1851 Nancy Cooksey Capps (1823-1900 buried in the Mud Creek Baptist Church Cemetery in Flat Rock, Henderson Co. NC.) by whom he had ten children.Nancy Capps is on the 1850 Henderson Co. NC census with her family, Rev. John and Mary (Chadwick) Capps at which time she was age 28.
It occurred to me there may be some connection between the Lindseys and Anders of Greenville Co.South Carolina which brought at least one line of Anders into North Carolina.
To continue with your subject William Riley Anders of Greenville, SC.On the 1870 census at Gowenville, Glassy Mountain, Greenville, SC.:Household #42 William Linsey age 69 farmer living alone.Household #43 George Anders 43, Juletta 42, W. P. 20, (this is William above)S. C. 17 (this is Sarah above), Mary 14, John 12, George 7,Jesse 3 (not sure the name is correct as it was scribbled) and L. J. female age 1.Household #44 is Joshua Linsey 38, wife Elizabeth 45, etc.
I was not able to locate William Riley Anders in 1880 nor 1900.I noticed the W. P. in the 1870 census rather than W. R. so the possibility exists that this is not the correct family but it was the only family in South Carolina where he was buried and apparently had some ties to.
I hope this will be helpful to someone.
P. S.I never have found the correct given name to the father of my Laura Ann Anders born 1875 NC. From her death certificate, I know her mother was Martha Redmon born (per the 1880 censusat Big Ivy, Buncombe Co. NCage 34) and wife of Jonathan Lidford (Ledford) age 22.Her two daughters Margaret (Mary "Polly" Margaret) age 8 and Laura age 5 are listed in their home along with Alfed P. Ledfordage 2 and Stacy E. Ledford age 1 apparently her children by Jonathan Ledford.Martha's first husband, a Mr. Andres (Anders)has been a mystery to me as he died between 1875 and 1880.Where I don't know.I don't know exactly where Laura and Mary Margaret were born other than NC.I think that Martha is the same as Martha E. Redman age 21 on the 1860 Davidson River, Henderson Co. NC census, daughter of Richard Harris Redman and wife Malinda Reese.If so, I think that Davidson River is now in Transylvania Co. NC and may be be a part of the Anders of that area.At the same time, I know that my grandmother Laura Ann Anders wrote her surname as Andres and Anders in her bible and it was spelled Andres on the 1880 census.I know that Laura married my grandfather Robert Hossack Kuykendall in Buncombe Co. NC 14 Jan 1892. My father was their first son (a daughter was born first) and his name is Riley William Kuykendall.
World War I Draft Card Index:
Riley William Kuykendall(Date of Birth) 14 Apr 1895(Race) Caucasian(Birth place) North Carolina, United States of AmericaRegistration Place Not Stated, Polk Co., NCRecords his place of birth as Ettowah, NC.His draft notice and discharge records the same thing.At the time of his registration, he was single, living with his parents in Tryon, Polk co. NC.His Delayed Birth Certificate which he later filed for,has his place of birth as Barnardsville, Buncombe Co. NC delivered by midwife Rebecca Burleson.We drove to Barnardsville looking for the house in which he was supposedly born. As best as I, in my teens at the time,can remember, was a white house on a street corner.I don't remember which street.
As you can see, I have many mysteries to solve also. But the name Riley shows up in not only the Kuykendall families but the Lindsey and Anders families as well.Who knows if there is a connection.
