Andersons of Logan County

Edited: 16 Aug 2001 7:33PM GMT
Surnames: Anderson, Webb, Bond
There was a Leonard Anderson who was Rev. War Soldier he
lived in North Logan towards Butler Co. he had a son Leonard
Jr. most of this line of Anderson's are buried at Union Grove in North Logan. There still is an Anderson Store Rd
and many Anderson's in Logan Co. Ky. The group that I am related to by marriage married back and forth in to the
Webb families of that part of the country. The 1st Webb there was Strother Webb supposededly born somewhere in Va.
in abt 1804. (I have never been able to find who his father
was)
I am not familar with your Anderson as I have not done much
on the Anderson line but someone else has and most of it is
in the public library and in the Archives in Logan co. Ky
Good luck in finding other Andersons

Andersons of Logan County

Surnames: ANDERSON
John B. ANDERSON is listed on the 1840 tax list for Todd County KY as living in Logan County and paying taxes on 173 acres of land on Whippoorwill Creek in Todd County. John may have been the father of Martha Anderson, who was born in 1805 in Fairfax County, VA. John may also have had a son named David and he may have had other children. John's wife's first initial may have been "W."

I would like to hear from anyone who knows anything about any ANDERSONs in Logan County between 1820 and 1850. I believe there may have been a town named Anderson Town. Any information will be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Lois, Any idea where John Anderson died, I think he possibly died before 1880 Census? And when Jemima died? I have yet to locate data on where either died and are buried, can you help? Like to hear from you. Anita

Hi Lois, I'm looking for John (H.?) & wife Jemima Anderson.
I have found a few other possible middle initials, but think the "H." is the correct one. You may also contact me personally if you like. Thank You, Anita

Surnames: ANDERSON, WATSON, BUCKNER, GHOLSON, DUDLEY, LONG, BROOKS, TAYLOR
Thanks to all of you who responded to my earlier posting on the early Andersons of Logan County. What I have learned in the last several years is that there were several different family groups of Andersons. My search was for the parents of Martha Ann Anderson, who married John Watson in adjacent Todd County in 1824. After 16 years research, I received an e-mail response to a posting that provided the clue I needed.

John Smith Anderson was the son of Thomas Anderson of Hanover County, VA. Thomas Anderson was a plantation owner and a member of the Virginia Assembly in 1775. John Smith Anderson attended college in Virginia in the late 1700s and married Susannah Lacey there in 1803. Their firstborn daughter and eldest child was Martha Ann Anderson, who was born in 1805.

In 1817, John Smith Anderson and his family moved to Logan County, KY, possibly to a part that is now known as Todd County. In 1820, when Todd County was formed from parts of Logan and Christian Counties, John Smith Anderson was named as a magistrate in Todd County. Around 1840, John Smith Anderson moved to Hopkins County, KY, where he died in 1841. A recorded land transaction in Hopkins County in 1844 lists his heirs. The following report summarizes the family of John Smith Anderson. A brother of John Smith Anderson was named Thomas Jefferson Anderson. Thomas Jefferson Anderson also lived in Logan County, KY for a short time before moving on to Nashville, TN.
