Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

meant what they said, said what they meant

Merry Christmas to you all…

I normally would say Y’all but I’m feelin’ formal-like today. Just had Christmas dinner with the family and two of my grandsons may have reached that magical age to where they may have an interest in genealogy. If so, they may be showing up to help.

Yesterday I did a few patents for a map and this little jewel shows up… it is not very often we get a whole plate of filet mignons served up in such a small package. Most researchers would be happy with one or two references that could be tracked to find meager clues… But feast your eyes my friend- this is an encyclopedia of clues. smiling… this surrounds MY GUY! Well, my guy is at least attached to THE GUY!.

Good Lord Mable! Where does one start?

  1. Yes, Etheldred Phillips is a member of my husband’s Phillips family.
    This Etheldred was the son of Joseph Phillips and the grandson of John Phillips (d.1759 Surry CO, VA) and his wife Martha Crafford. Etheldred’s probate was filed 15 Dec 1791 in Edgecombe CO.
    My husband is an Anderson though not a descendant of ‘the’ William Anderson (d. May 1790 Edgecombe CO, NC).
    I am a descendant of this William Anderson.

    If interested in the Phillips family… let me know.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    • Hi Debbie
      Check back in a while to see where this map develops… this particular area of Edgecombe is just jam-packed with people. I will probably have to break out this area into several time zones… say, a 1745 era, a 1760 era and maybe a post 1776 era. I have found that with my crowd and the history involved that these maps put it all into a new perspective. Almost like a Big Picture.

      • I love your maps and have downloaded some of them ;-). Thank you for doing this. I had done a similar project (compiled the deed records) in the early 2000s for these Phillips folk, but in early Surry CO, VA, and then a little research of those Edgecombe CO deeds. That is when I learned that ‘my’ William Anderson was neighbors with my husband’s Phillips clan.
