I'm looking for antecedents to MARCUS ANDERSON and LANTIE (pronounced Lanny, soft T) PERDUE, my greatgrandparents, who were from Jefferson County Ga. and moved to Wheeler county Georgia, 1900 or earlier.Their son, ALVIN PRESTON ANDERSON was my grandfather, b. 1887 in Jefferson county. He had a sister, SAVANNAH ("Vannah") Anderson, who married William Henry Perdue (a cousin???) and moved to Plant City Fla.He also had brothers LINDSEY and HARVEY who lived in Laurens county Ga, which is "next door" to Wheeler Co.Alvin Preston Anderson first married Martha Lou Clark (b1881, Laurens Co, Ga, d/o Cornelius Morgan and Susan Caroline Walden Clark) and then Saphronia (Fronnie) Phillips, a distant cousin from Jefferson county (d/o Green Stephens Phillips and Fannie Williams Phillips).I do know that the Andersons lived very near the Phillips family when they lived in Jefferson county (near Reedy Creek, between Wrens and Thompson)
My mother, Lantie MAE Anderson Smith (b 8/7/15) believes that MARCUS ANDERSON'S mother was a Williams and related to Fannie Williams Phillips.
I have been told that Ggf Marcus Anderson was a carpenter and a brick mason and that he built several houses in Mt. Vernon, Ga.They are buried in Alamo, ga.
