Research/Writing in Progress: Anderson

(last updated 12/26/15)

Research questions:

WHO ARE THE PARENTS OF “MISS MARTHA ANDERSON” FOR CERTAIN?

WHO IS THE WIFE OF ROBERT (1786-1846) (MAHALA?)? IS HE THE SAME ROBERT, DESCENDANT OF THE  PLYMOUTH COLONY? IS HE THE SON OF JOHN (1731-1814) AND ELIZABETH WILSON ANDERSON?

WHO ARE ALL THE ANDERSONS BURIED AT BULL CREEK CEMETERY?

ARE WE RELATED TO THE ANDERSONS MARRIED & BURIED IN BUTLER CO: MIDDLESEX U.P.; GLADE RUN U.P.; & THE METHODIST-EPISCOPAL CHURCH? IN WESTMORELAND CO: POLK RUN U.P.?

ARE WE RELATED TO CHARLES (1803-1878), WHO CAME TO BALTIMORE AND WHOSE FAMILY SETTLED THE DEPRECIATION LANDS (TALLY CAVEY –  IDA MARRIED LELAND ALLISON AND SAMUEL’S DAUGHTER MARRIED JAMES L. ALLISON. CHARLES MARRIED NETTIE PEARCE)?

WAS JAMES ROSS’ WIFE, MARY, FROM THE CAMBELL DEED, A SECOND SPOUSE SINCE HIS DAUGHTER JANE’S MOTHER IS BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN “MISS” MARTHA ANDERSON? ARE THERE OTHER ANDERSONS IN THE CAMPBELL CLAN SINCE THOMAS CAMPBELL, JR’S MIDDLE NAME IS ANDERSON?

ARE THESE ANDERSONS CONNECTED TO THE (JAMES) MACKRELLS OF WEST DEER TOWNSHIP FOUND IN THE 1850 & 60 CENSUSES?

Speculation:

THERE IS SOME CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ANDERSON (THOMAS’ MIDDLE NAME) AND HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW MARTHA AND THE OTHER ANDERSONS IN WEST DEER TWP. AND BULL CREEK CEMETERY.

    John and Elizabeth Wilson Anderson came to the U.S. in 1765. They had a son Robert Anderson born on May 2, 1776 in Pennsylvania. His son was Moses Thomas Anderson. Moses’s son was John Calvin Anderson. J.B. Anderson was his son. Much of this family settled along the Allegheny River in Pennsylvania. I am a direct descendant. Robert T. Anderson of Atlantic City, Iowa was my great-grandfather. He was married to Agnes Duncan Low(e) Anderson who was born in Tarves, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. My grandfather was Robert Bruce Anderson of Albin, Wyoming. My father was Wayne Duncan Anderson. It looks like the Robert Anderson (b. 1776) buried at Bull Creek Cemetery is the man You’re looking for. His wife’s name is correct by my records.

      Thanks Carol,
      And it was nice to meet your sister Cindy. [See “Introduction: Anderson.”] We’ll re-establish the Martha-Robert relationship soon.
