Sorry, but I have forgotten which Anderson you are researching in Jackson Co., TN.Is it Caleb SR?
Peyton Anderson (1792-1838)was the son of Charles Anderson of VA who died circa 1826 in Jackson Co., TN.Some of Peyton's siblings were Caleb Anderson Sr(1782-1836)who married Nancy(Wheeler?);Rhoda Anderson who married Elijah Simmons; Milly Jane Anderson who married Elijah Price; and possibly Jubal Anderson who married Mary Ann Holleman.
I have copies of some of the family record pages of a Bible which at one time belonged to Peyton Anderson. These pages include birth information on Peyton's children and some of his grandchildren. One of those included was his daughter Pamelia "Milly",who according to these pages was born 4 Feb 1820.She married Anderson Adcock on 8 Sep 1840 in Allen Co., KY.Milly was Anderson's second wife.I'm still not certain who his first wife was. I thought for a time that her name was Syntha or Cynthia, but I still can't prove that.
After Peyton died in 1838, the Bible was given to his son Joel Anderson.There is a note on the pages that shows "Presented to Joel Anderson the 21st April 1838 by Richard Brooks and Merlin Young".I'm told that it is still in the hands of a family member today, but she isn't letting anyone look at it. I was given these pages several years ago by another family member who was fortunate enough to see the Bible and make copies at that time. There are births recorded for seven Adcock children in these Bible pages.
Since the Adcock children were mostly born after Peyton's death, the entries would probably have been made by Joel Anderson or a member of his family.The Adcock children listed include: Agnes, William G (Green?), Nancy, Wesly, America Elizabeth, George Washington, and Anny.
These entries are very difficult to read, but it appears to say: Agnes was born May the 12th 1836, William G May the 24th 1838, Nancy December 1st 1840, George W October the 25th 1843, Wesly the 13th April 1844,Any May the 3rd 1846, and America E August the 15th 1852.
I've always wondered why all the Adcock children were recorded here since they weren't all Milly's children. I wondered if perhaps Anderson Adcock's first wife was also a daughter of Peyton's.He did have eight daughters, but none named Syntha or anything close to that.
Milly filed for divorce from Anderson Adcock in Aug 1867 Jackson Co.In his answer, the only child he acknowledged to be his by Milly was America Elizabeth.He stated that Milly had other children but that they weren't his. He also stated that he had other children by another wife but didn't list any of these. I could only find parts of this case and never went back to read the whole file again. Perhaps there is more information there to help you.
I descend from Charles Anderson through two of his children. America Elizabeth Adcock married Thomas Zara Allen.Thomas Z Allen was a grandson of Milly Jane (Anderson)Price.America E Allen was granddaughter of Peyton Anderson and his first wife Anna (NMN).If you need more info on any of these people, please get back to me here or directly (KRai3@aol.com)
