This Anderson & associated families research has taken us from Big Creek, Forsyth County, Georgia to the Darlington County, S.C to Cumberland County,NC back to Albamarle County, Va to England and many other locations. It has been very frustrating at times but highly rewarding and will be ongoing. I have had help from many individuals. Many will go unnamed but I hope they know who they are. Much of the input came from my sister, Jane Corley and my son, David Anderson. My thanks and appreciation go with them. Others were Maggie Anderson, Donna Parish, Brenda Webb and the list goes on. My inspiration has always been my wife and best friend, Sheila.
This page is dedicated to my Anderson Ancestors some of which can be seen HERE
