I've posted this query to the rootsweb ANDERSON list already and got a few leads, but nothing really hard and conclusive to work with yet. Just the same, I'm posting it here in the hopes of getting more leads to confuse the issue even more. I actually have two ANDERSON lines directly related to me, and to my knowledge they are not related. Here's the first one:
My initial info came from my grandparents bible, which was a bunch of names without dates or places. I've since found that this family settled in Paulding County in the year 1853. There is strong evidence to suggest that the father of Rebecca STILLWELL is Nicholas STILLWELL. Though I have not seen the census yet, in the 1830 census index for Logan County, OH he is the only STILLWELL listed. I had John ANDERSON as being born in Pennsylvania, but do not recall the source of that information.Once again, any help would be appreciated.

I am descended from Emma Rebecca ANDERSON & Andrew Caskey PIERCE. I do have some information on the spouses of some of these ANDERSON's, but it is limited to spouses and not their children at the moment. If you tie in, send me an email.
