Businessman. An Iron manufacturer, he served as an United States Army physician stationed at Fort Monroe, Virginia, and Fort King, Florida, from 1813 to 1839. He became superintendent of the Armory Iron Company in Richmond in 1848, and in 1859, with his son-in-law, Joseph Reid Anderson, merged that company with the Tredegar Iron Company to form Joseph R. Anderson and Company, which would produce most of the heavy ordnance for the Confederacy. (bio by: Garver Graver)
