I have a Paulin Anderson as Colonel of the first Battalion of Militia [of Amelia County?] during the Revolution. In April, 1789, he was tried at a court martial and acquitted of the charges brought against him (Calendar of Virginia State Papers and Other Manuscripts, 1785-1789, p. 593). My GGGGGGrandfather Moses Craddock was a member of the jury. Interestingly, Moses' daughter Jane Craddock married a Paulin Anderson, perhaps Col. Anderson's son? I look forward to hearing your take on all this.
