My line runs from the brother of Ann Nancy Ankers. Snowden Anchors, Sr. His grandson Snowden Taylor Anchors, my great great grandfather, left Maryland in the 1840's with Allen Anchors and Samuel M. Anchors to work for the railroad in Georgia. All three married Georgia girls with Samuel staying near Macon, Allen moving to Talladega, Alabama, and Snowden moving to Shelby, Alabama before 1860. Most of what you will find is well documented by researchers from the Anchors family. Some of the Snowden Sr. family moved on to Ohio and Penn. "The Northern Branch" They have a family reunion most years and one of their researchers is Don Anchors in California. You will find many postings from Don on Ancestry. One line of the family moved to Virginia and uses the Ankers spelling. They still have the cradle brought from England or Ireland by John Anchors in 1665 to Anne Arundle Co., Maryland. It is said to date from Ireland in the 1500's. This line also has family reunions and has great family documentation. The "Southern branch" from Samuel M. Anchors has been having family reunions for a number of years dating way back. In 2000 when I started researching the family I was lucky to link up with Don in California who put me in touch with my Georgia cousins. We have unfortunately not had a family reunion the past year due to poor health for Cecil Anchors. Cecil is the official patriarc of this line and the driving force. I hope we can start getting back together again. I would be glad to help you with any family questions you may have. We have very little on Ann Nancy and Daniel Pierce. Only their birth, marriage, and a death date for Daniel. No children. Would appreciate any info you may have on this line. My Mother was Marian Louise Anchors the great grandaughter of Snowden Taylor. You can email me at UFFBEAR@aol.com
if you wish. Kindest regards and always glad to hear from cousins no matter how near or far on the tree! Allen J. Uffinger in Helena, Al.
