  1. Hi: The comments from Washington County GA are mine and I just wondered if this is Marc? You have done a masterful job – we are going to the Archives at Morrow GA to see what we can find about the ancestry of Henry b. 1795. We will also visit the genealogy library at Raleigh- all this after the genealogical convention at Charleston. We think it is the Henry from the above account but then would like to know who he came from…..Henry b. 1795 always said on all of the census info that he was born in NC. Maybe when we go through all of your reports we will know! Please email me.

    • Good to hear from you Judy (I lost your contact info).
      Sounds like your calendar is pretty full! Let me know any news and I’ll add it to the mix.

  2. Tell me again why this can’t be the son of William Anderson Sr.? Thanks for helping me catch up…

    • The son of William Sr/Mourning Price married Lovey Staton in 1799 … he is recorded in multiple deeds around the Wiggins Lake area and in concert with his brother George Anderson. This Henry d.1801 had wife Charity and none of the children have been associated with the Wiggins Lake Andersons to my knowledge.
