Hi Dawn, I am sorry to take so very long to get back to you. I have been ill for a long time, but I ran across this entry and wanted to clarify. I mistakenly said Mansfield's birth record, when I should have said his death certificate which states that his father was James and that he was born in SC. I have traced virtually every Anderson of whom there is a record during the correct time period and I can say positively that I do not agree with the Swedish genealogy, of which there is no proof whatsoever that I can find. If the originator of the story has shared with anyone what proof exists, I would sure like to know. I have found two other lines that fit very closely with information that my father gave me and my mother who is still living at 98. When I am sure of the line. I will open my tree to the public.
Also I noticed a reference from another person regarding the vital statistics listings for Macon County. From the items that I have ordered from the lists, 2 have been wrong. I no longer rely on any one else's info. It is like the census,where so often names were so mispelled as to be unrecognizable.Happy Hunting!
