[page 122]James ANDERSON, born 3 March 1803 in Chesterfield County, Virginia, died 14 July 1860 in Union Parish,Louisiana, wrote an extensive "Family Record" in his

That record opened with a dramatic description:"Great Grandfather of James ANDERSON on foregoing page an englishman, left school on account of scant diet & migrated to America"That man, also a "James" ANDERSON, married Mary JORDAN before July 1715 when "George JORDAN Senr.& Mary his wife of Surry County, Virginia" conveyed land to "Mary ANDERSON, wife of James ANDERSON of Surry County."

Some WATKINS Families of Virginia and their Kin:..
(Gateway Press, Baltimore, 1989)The accuracy of the Bible record is substantiated by the official records that Edward ANDERSON marriedSusannah OLIVER in 1775 in Sussex County, Virginia; Charles ANDERSON made bond in Cumberland County,Virginia, in 1789 for his marriage to Anna ALLEN; James ANDERSON made bond in Charlotte County, Virginia,in 1785 for his marriage to Susannah BROWN; David ANDERSON married Lucy HORSLEY in 1785 inChesterfield County, Virginia; Jordan ANDERSON made bond in 1785 in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, for hismarriage to Margaret EASTER; Nathan ANDERSON made bond in Chesterfield County, Virginia, in 1785 for hismarriage to Marianna MAYO.The Bible record continues:(c)Jourdan [
