Re: Anderson-Meador Families Bedford-Franklin C. VA 1800's
Although my records show that Ananias married Sally on 3 Mar. 1823 in Franklin Co. VA, to the best of my recollection (research 20 years cold), Ananias MEADOR remained in Bedford County and his will is recorded there.Ananias's daughter Elizabeth (Bettie) Ann MEADOR (b. 1825) m. Jubal D. MEADOR son of Polly MEADOR and an unknown father.Ananias remarried after Sally's death.
Ananias also had a son named Jubal which gave rise to some anxious moments during my research.I was a bit relieved to find my Jubal was the son of Polly MEADOR albeit illegitamate!Ananias MEADOR & Sally ANDERSON and Polly MEADOR and Mr. Traveling Salesman are my gr. gr. gr. grandparents.
By the way, Polly hauled John FARMER and Rite WRIGHT to court in separate paternity cases but that was before my Jubal was born.She had 6 children but never married.She was 14 when the first child was born and 30 when Jubal (her youngest) was born.
Both Ananias and Polly died in 1862 according to my records.I have Sally ANDERSON's date of death as 22 Dec. 1848 and that Ananias remarried Amy PREAS.
