I would like to know ancestry of this William Anderson and wife Nancy Irwin.There were two William Andersons who settled along the Ohio River in what is now Mason and Jackson Counties, West Virginia, and Meigs County, Ohio.I suspect this one has a different ancestry.Among other places descendants may live in Warren County, Iowa, and/or Madison County, Iowa.
