(a William Anderson is listed but he is under the list of Captain Jacob Whitehead’s Company who I am of the opinion is William of Tarboro, died 1789. This raises a question of where was the William of Halifax during the mid 1750s since all men between 16-60 were required to be in the militia. This muster was for the mid 1750s.)
