Anyone out there who is descended from the Scottish-Irish ANDERSONS (John, James, George, Margarate, Jean, etc) and/or the German LICHTES (later Anglaisized to "LIGHT"), please contact me!
The ANDERSONS moved from Scotland to Ulster, Ireland around the year 1680, and then to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and eventually to Virginia & West Virginia in the early 1700s.They were land-owners and prominant members of early United States society. James Anderson was a Captain in the Revolutionary War, and served for 4 years on the Virginia Legislature.
The LICHTES (LIGHTS) emmigrated from Palantinate, Germany to Lancaster PA in the early 1700s, and the two families merged through the matrimony of James Anderson (born around 1740) and Elizabeth Light (born around 1760).Their son was Peter Light Anderson, Sr.
Please e-mail me if you believe you might be descended from any of these people!!!We can exchange information!!!I have lots of it!
