A while ago I posted a message looking for information about my great great grandfather, Philip Anderson. As time has gone by I have uncovered some information about him but not enough to truely pin point him, but it gave me some direction. I am hoping that someone out there can help. Here is what I have discovered so far:
Philip Anderson was born June 28, 1866 in Centre Co., PA. I am not sure of his parents' names, but believe his father was John Anderson. Philip married Mary Ann West (my great great grandmother, who was born in Wales) in July of 1888 in William Penn, Pennsylvania. I am not sure if they were divorced or what happened but she remarried first to a Rittenhouse and then to a Henry, and relocated to Philadelphia. She and Philip had 3 children together. Albert I. Anderson, born August of 1889 and married to Della Fedderman. Mildred May Anderson (my great grandmother) born November 1891 and married to Willard Betz. And Florence Anderson born December 1893 and married to Wesley Brown. I lean toward a divorce between him and Mary because there is a story in the family of how he contacted my great grandmother when she was an adult. Mary's family is mostly from the Luzerne and Schuylkill county area.
Does this sound at all familiar to anyone? Hope to hear some encouraging news.
