I've been working on my Anderson line for about seven years now. I was under the impression that my John Anderson b. Abt. 1786 in Virginia was the son of William Anderson b. Apr. 1760, son of Jacob Anderson b.1731, son of George Anderson d.1778. Although I haven't found any proof.
My John possibly married Lucy Walton. She died aft.1842 in Grand River, Daviess Co., Missouri. He's listed on the 1840, 1850 & 1860 census in that county. He never remarried, but had the following children. John W. Anderson b.1824 in VA, Raseen? Anderson b.1826 in VA, Abner E. Anderson b.1831 in VA, Mary Ava Anderson b.1834 in VA, William W. Anderson b.1836 in VA, Robert I. Anderson b.1838 in MO and Jeremiah E. Anderson b.1842 in MO.
My line runs though Abner.
Any info on John, his parents or children would be greatly appreciated.
