Patterson tidbit…

with 6 comments

Cousin Penny has engaged Traci Thompson to look into the wife of George Anderson jr (1798-1864). The wife being Mary “Polly” Patterson.

I stumbled across this…

Note the name “Sukey” Patterson in the estate papers… scroll down to “The Town William” at this link…

I’ve pondered if this William was the brother of George Anderson Sr. or perhaps another family altogether that lived closer to the town of Tarboro (the Henry Anderson d.1801 family… perhaps his son)???

    • I’m not sure how this shakes out… this is an earlier generation than the Mary “Polly” that married George Jr (he was born 1798).

  2. Is Henry d. 1801 not the son of William Sr.?

    • No… completely different family. The 1801 group is a mystery.

      The Henry (son of Mourning Price) had property near George Anderson Sr & Jr near Wiggins Lake.

      The other group was south of Tarboro near Pitt Co line.

      • The deed references lead me to think the “Town William” is the son of Mourning Price (Wm Anderson Jr, Jr)… also the father of Micajah Anderson. Micajah was born 1803 and in his book says “his father died when he was young”…. this William had dealings with the Pattersons and John Womble.

        Edge. Co. Db 21, page 414, deed date 21 Nov 1835, recorded Nov Ct

        1835, commissioners lay off to Catherine Womble, widow of John Womble,

        dec’d her legal dower in the lands that her late husband died seized

        and possessed of in said county, beginning at a red oak then south 21

        east 66 poles to a small pine then south 82 west 80 poles to a small

        oak and pine then north 15 west along Weeks Parker’s line 40 poles to a

        small pine on Pender’s line then along Pender’s line to a pine stump

        then north 19 east 30 poles to the beginning, containing 25 acres,

        signed Zachariah Griffin, Alexr. Braswell, Wm. Pender, Henry Morgan, A.

        Pitt, Zacha Sasnett, R.D. Wimberly, W.W. Armstrong, David Holland

        (mark), John Ward (X), John Anderson (X), George Anderson (X).

        Abstracted 7-9-03, LDS film 0370237, CTC.

        “Womble states he never received the deed , and that Anderson has since died leaving two minor Daughters Nancy Ann Anderson and Betsy Anderson, both of Lenoir County. Womble petitioned The said daughters for the land.” …1819

  3. Penny…
    I’ve repondered (if that is a word) the report of Traci and tend to agree that Mary was connected to Sukey.
    It is a hunch at this point. Here is the complications as I see it…

    The William Anderson connected with the Patterson sisters is still undetermined. If you study the 1800 and 1819 census then you see that the 2 sons of William Anderson d.1789 are accounted for. The mystery “Town William”, as I call him, is distinctly different.

    I can’t say if he was:
    1. a son of the Henry Anderson d.1801 (this son died prior to 1815) so he can’t be discounted
    2. the son of Mourning Price (died after 1803 but his date of death is undetermined)
    3. a son of the “commissioner” James Anderson (if he actually exists?)

    See the Page… Edgecombe Census 1790-1810 (see the guy in green color”)

    Still a tough nut to crack.
