Trust me, I'm with you on this Larry... It can get frustrating, I'm working on the Mullins side of my tree at the moment and I am passed the early 1600s-- very little written documents to go on--- I am pulling my hair out with it too.
Anyway--- Here is a link to a reputable source for the James Anderton/ Caroline Fortner. It was updated 10-14-2004, so the email info should be correct if you have questions. Their children's names lists both a "John" and a "Wiley"... (imagine that! I guess the family was partial to certain names in that day...heh heh) In any case, they hail from Blout Co.

The same researcher also has the information for the other James Anderton listing Good Luck... I will keep looking also Larry, I may be able to find out some more details from my back notes.
