Re: Walter Woodworth descendants book, 1898
I am still trying to figure out a mystery 7 generations back.
My gr-gr-gr-gr-grandfather was Daniel Anderson.The information I have on him has been passed down from ANDERSON family members in Michigan.I have not seen any solid proof of this, but I feel I must try to unravel this anyway.
Daniel ANDERSON born @ 1776 in Perthshire Scotland?Came to NY about that time.Not sure of date of birth or exact time came to NY.
Daniel married 2 times.
1st Charlotte WOODWORTH born June 1774 in Washington CO. NY.Do not know names of her parents. Charlotte died in 1839 in Mayfield NY.One of my mysteries is who were her parents?
Daniel married 2nd time.To Nancy NEWTON WOODWORTH.Nancy was widow of William WOODWORTH who was born April 16, 1774.William died April 28, 1812.(I beleive he also died in Mayfield NY area.)Sometime after his death in 1812 and the death of Charlotte (WOODWORTH) ANDERSON in 1839 Daniel ANDERSON and Nancy NEWTON ANDERSON were married.
From the information I have family history says that when William married Nancy she was a widow with daughter.So looks like Nancy had possibly been married 3 times.
I am not sure if her maiden name was NEWTON or if that was her married name from her 1st husband.I do not have the name of her daughter unless her daughter was also a Nancy and she took the last name of William WOODWORTH as her own last name.
I do have a Nancy WOODWORTH born March 12, 1806 who married Archibald ANDERSON, the son of Daniel ANDERSON and Charlotte (WOODWORTH) ANDERSON.
I believe maybe Charlotte WOODWORTH and William WOODWORTH were possibly cousins.Don't think they were brother and sister as they show both being born in 1774.Charlotte in June and William in April.
Does any of this show up in your book?I would love to solve this.I can't stand not knowing.Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance.Rhonda
