I am interested in the names of the parents of Perry Green Anderson who married Nancy Farr.Perry was my great great grandfather. I think Perry's father's name was James Anderson (b. 1777) who married Mary Lavicey White.The following information was recently shared with me:
"James ANDERSON to Perry G. ANDERSON, love and affection, 40 ac. in 1st Dist. jns. old boundry line, George Best's, Thompson's line; also 40 ac jns Borden's line and old boundry line. wit; James Anderson, Jr., David Farr; PROV 2/3/1851 Rob't A. Tedford, clk. Reg. 2/16/1852 And. McClain, Reg."
Perry sold this land in 1858 to his double brother-in-law (John Farr, the brother of Nancy Farr, married Perry's Sister Sarah Anderson):
"Perry Anderson of Cherokee Co., NC to John FARR in Dist #1 joins George Best, Thompson line, also a tract of 40 acres in the 17th district joins Borden line, conditional line to Thompson, witnesses: Bazel Farr, Lewis Farr, ack;12/23/1858 J. C. McCoy, clk; reg. 12/23/1858 Andrew McClair reg."
It seems that this was a gift from a James Anderson who I think could have been Perry's father when he married Nancy Farr.One of the whitnesses was James Anderson, Jr who I think was Perry's brother and the other, David Farr, the father of Perry's wife Nancy Farr.It is possible that James Anderson is James Sr, Perry's grandfather and the whitness James Jr, is his father. When Perry sold this land, the whitnesses were both brothers of Nancy Farr. I greatly appreciate any help anyone may be able to provide. Sincerely, James E Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
