I am searching for descendants of Capt. John Anderson, the owner of the Blockhouse on the Holston where the KY Wilderness Road began. Some of you may be aware that the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Society recently obtained a $400,000 grant from Congress to reconstruct the Blockhouse, and a wonderful version of the Anderson Blockhouse now stands in Natural Tunnel State Park, VA.

My line of Andersons (descended from John's great grandson John William Anderson) are planning to hold our family reunion at the Blockhouse June 17-18, 2005. We are wondering if any other lines of the family would like to join us. The Society plans to use this as a major event, with reenactments, militia musters, etc., and the family members are invited to participate.

I am also looking for any information on the life of John Anderson as I have been tasked with writing the official brochure on him for the Blockhouse and soon-to-come interpretive center. I have gathered considerable information on him but would like to hear from anyone who believes they might contribute. Please send me a response at if you are interested in the reunion or might have information for me (I'll be glad to share what I've gathered as well).

Bill Anderson
