Jonathan H "Chain" Anderson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1846
San Augustine County
Texas, USA
Death: Dec. 2, 1878
Shelby County
Texas, USA

Private, Company E, 19th Regiment, Texas Infantry, CSA

Son of Perry Anderson and Nancy Isabella Bodine
Brother of John S Anderson
Husband of Martha Noel

This is believed to be the burial site for Jonathon H "Chain" Anderson even though the birth date is that of his older brother because, in part, the death date is earlier than that of brother John S Anderson. John's death date is 15 Jul 1917 (Louisiana Statewide Death Index 1900-1929), almost 19 years after the 2 Dec 1878 on this headstone. Additional evidence is the initials J H rather than J S on this headstone. Further complicating the problem is the fact that John is buried with his second wife, Lizzie Denby (1871-1907), in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Shelbyville, but the grave is marked with a military style headstone for Jonathan Anderson. It is thought that John's original stone was lost and the replacement represents the confusion surrounding the burial sites of the two brothers. Why Jonathan was buried with his brother's birth date is lost in family history.
