Andersons from Nash Co.,N.C. to Ga. & Fl.
Looking for the ancestors of Henry Anderson, bn. Feb. 1792, Nash Co. and d. 1851 Brooks Co.,Ga.
Married Alice Wells, d/o Jeremiah Wells, also of Nash Co., in Telfair Co.,Ga. in 1825. Children were;
Ila Anderson, bn. abt 1828
Jeremiah Wells Anderson, bn. 1831
Little Berry Anderson, bn. 1833
Elna Elizabeth Anderson,bn. 1835
Naming patterns for this family apparently are irrelevant, unless there were children born earlier that did not live and are not recorded.
Henry rec'd or purchased a land grant in Thomas Co.,Ga,(now Brooks). Jeremiah Wells transferred several slaves to Alice and Henry upon their marriage, but there is no record of slave ownership in Thomas co. in 1830. But there are several black Jeremiah and Henry Andersons, freemen, that began to be recorded in Ga. after 1830 in the same area.
I would be most appreciative of any help offered in finding Henry's parentage. Note that Little Berry Anderson stated in a census that his father's parentage was Scottish.
