As we move over to rootsweb messages, a group of Anderson researchers is still looking for someone to take a Y-DNA cheek swab test to break through our brick wall. We need a male with surname Anderson from any of the following male lines found in northern Georgia and Alabama after migrating from Pendleton District SC prior to 1830. These are the children of Abraham and Vilinda Anderson as listed in the Nov. 2, 1815 heirs document:
Abel Anderson (b. abt. 1790 SC- d. Cleburne Co. Ala. after 1860) married in 1825 to Anna McGee son: Abel Azariah aka A.Z. aka Azariah B. married to Louisa/Lettie Jane unk. son: Josiah/James Asberry married to Josephine unk. son of James: John Wesley married to Mollie S. Turner
Isaac Anderson (b. abt. 1786 SC-d. Cherokee Co. GA) married in 1827 to Hannah Franklin son: John F. (b. abt. 1829) married to Mary unk. John F.’s sons: Thomas H. and Gordon son: Lowry W. or William Lowry (not Lewis) married to Amanda unk. Lowry’s son: Isaac M.
Aronamias (b. abt. 1777 SC- d. after 1832 Habersham or Cherokee Co. GA) 4 sons b. SC per 1820 Pendleton distr. census, names unknown

John (b. btwn 1794-1804 SC) lived in Habersham Co. GA possible son: Franklin possible son: William
Abraham (b. about 1792 SC)
Besides Y-DNA, if anyone from these lines (male or female, any surname) has done Family Finder DNA at Family Tree DNA, could you please let us know so we can look for cousin matches? This would include the 3 daughters of Abraham Anderson and Vilinda Gilder:
Rosannah (b. abt 1780 in Newberry SC) married Moses Kennimore/Cannamore children: Kennimore orphans sent to Habersham Co. to Zadock’s – Malinda, Abraham B., Elvira/Elizabeth?, Michael T. Older children: Joab/Joseph?, Rial/Riley?

Elizabeth (b. abt 1786 SC) married Abraham/Abram Franklin, moved to Habersham, then Cherokee Co. GA children: Linda, Elias, Anderson Green, William Benjamin?, Bennett, Bird
Thank you so much. Any discussion will need to be continued on rootsweb or ancestry.
