I have verified Mansfield Andersons father as James Anderson. from Mansfield's birth record in South Carolina. James Anderson died in Ohio at his daughters home. This I have also verified by the census. I am in the process of personal verfication of every member of my tree as far as is possible and will show any that are not verified by a note of explanation of possible sources when I make my tree public. Although the swedish ancestry is on file with the national archives, I am not positive that it is correct and am tracing the line myself. My father gave me a lot of information before he passed and the census are very helpful, since they show the neighbors which his father knew well or had heard about from his father or were married into the family.
