Halifax Andersons… 1730s

with 2 comments

Don’t I feel like a moron… I’ve had a breakthrough of a brick wall staring at me for a couple years now and simply did not make the connection.

The Halifax guys are all dead ends with no beginning or end … they are just THERE… no start, no finish… until now:

A William Anderson is clearly there in the deeds at least by 1732… then SHAZAM! … he dies. This is the stuff that actually allows for a little ACTUAL genealogy!

He obviously died intestate and leaves no paper trail other than the deed references but at least it leaves open the possibility that HE was a father of some of the other orphans we puzzle over.

He was right there in Halifax for at least 30 years.

Drinking had nothing to do with it….


Did Daniel Duncan MURDER William Anderson?

Sorry… I just made that up to get some comments…

Daniel Duncan was running from the LAW in numerous COUNTIES!!!… counterfeiting was punishable by death… and he was a vile and despicable COUNTERFEITER!!!!

I didn’t make that up… he beat the rap but any sane person knows he was guilty…. ‘course I sometimes doubt my own sanity…

    • You asked your question on the post before this… I answered… sort of.
      Folks just have to kind of remember where they post… I have lots of Pages and Posts… sometimes hard to keep straight. Its all good tho’… when people comment then it contributes to everyone’s questions.
