William Ross Anderson born about 1834 in Pennsylvania and died after 1880. He is in Iowa in 1860 & 1870 census (Mahaska & Marion Co.s) By 1880 he was in Nicholson Twp, Fayette Co., Penn. His wife was Amanda Jane Brownfield. She was born in Fayette Co., Penn in abt 1840 and died in 1873 in Newbern, Warren co., Iowa. My great grandmother Annabelle Anderson Sturgis was one of their daughters. Would like to know who his parents were.

** I am not related.

The 1850 census shows this family as a good possibility for your William especially since they were back in Fayette Co. in 1880 and Amanda was born in Fayette Co.

Thanks so much, this looks like a good possibility. Unsure why this did not come up in my many searches in Fayette co.

It depends on what index you use. Most indexes are by Head of Household only. Ancestry's indexes from 1850 to the present, list all household members including children, in-laws, servants, hired hands, etc.

Chris -

I am related on the Brownfield side. I have lots of information on that family, but I only have William and Amanda's children. I would love to exchange information. My email is BrianGSmith789@gmail.com
