RE: Facebook
Putting it on find a grave is fine. Sorry that I have finished my Harder papers, I will get back to it. I had all of the papers scanned on the pc, but some how my pc deleted them, and I do not know how it did it. It also deleted all of my pictures. Maybe those pictures of family came to life and took their pictures, I hope not as many died many, years ago. Where can I look on the pc to see where they were moved to? No, you do not have to put any thing on facebook. I only put the pictures on facebook of some of my DePriest family that live in Miss., Florida, etc. I believe that our Harder that our family, is also part of the Harder family that went North. Part went from Virginia and South Caroline to Ten, one brother went up to the New York area. It was good to hear from you. Stay warm hope you did not very much snow. Our spring flowers are coming up in Ten., Take your time, with what you are putting on find a grave. I have been working on and finding more family who were in the REV, WAR. I will type more of the Harders this week, as I see it has been some time since I sent any. Debi

Chilion Ford
Sorry, can't remember the message. But I am guessing it was his birth year. Per the birth records of 4 of his siblings, he would have been born in Morristown, New Jersey. His parents didn't move to New York until 1808. While his father did expeditions there prior to 1808, the family stayed in Morristown, NJ until 1808.
His census records, immigration records, etc have him born in 1802.
Or, I may have mistakenly given you the 1835 birth year of Chilion's nephew, Chilion Jones.

the reunion was good, about 110 were there. If all the DePriest would have been there it would have been about 600 hundred or more. I will get back with you on the family history. Hope all is going well for you and the family.

You are welcome for the picture! I have added it to his wife's Paulina. Of course you can use the photo to your liking. I added the grave site to the caption when I added the photo, maybe that is not the right place? Here it is though: Range 22, Graves 131-132. I did the same for Josephine Urban, here is hers: Special Singles 8, Grave 176. I am glad I could help! Karen

Anderson family cont.
Sorry it has been awhile since I sent any information.
The "Block House" was located in Carter's Valley, at a point where the hills, opening into a valley half a mile wide and a mile long from a pleasant spot in a rough country. The fort site was determined, as "House" was the last station on the old Kentucky road before it passed through Moccasin gap, gateway to the Indian country. Roads from north and south going west converged here, and it was at this point that travelers to Kentucky gatered to form parties through the hazardus journey to the new country beyond the mountains.

Twice the Anderson family was driven by Indian attacks from the "Block House" and forced to find shelter in a fort at the present site of Abingdon.

OnDec 21,1776, Gov. Patrick Henry issued a commission of peace and dediumus for Washington Co., by which John Anderson and other justices of the peace were appointed for the new county, and on Jan. 28, 1777, the county was organized when John Anderson produced his commissions and took the oath of justice, administered by Co. Arthur Campbell.

John Anderson was a member of the first court of Washington county,Va., and was present at the first meeting, which was held at Black's Fort ( now Abingdon) on the last Tuesday in Jan. 1777.

On Feb. 26, 1777, the court procedded to recommend to the officers of Washington County to the Governor of Virginia. They were duly commissinoned. John Anderson, Gentleman, produced a commission form his Excellency, the Govnor, bearing the 18th May, 1777, appointing him captain of the militia of the county of Washington and took the required oath of office.

On Jan 29, 1777, John Anderson was appointed to take the list of tithables and quatity of taxable land from Maj. Anthony Bledson " As low as there are settlers, " Maj. Bledsoe lived east of Kingsport, Tenn, and this would indicate that Capt. Anderson was located at this time at the Block House.

On May 20, 1777, John Anderson was allowed by the county court of Washington, Va, two diets for the use of the Washington Milita under the command of Capt. Newell on their march to Powell's Valley, and also one hog for the same. The stock mark of John Anderson was recorded at the same session of court.

Capt. John Anderson died at the Block House in Scott, Va. Oct. 13, 1817.
John and Rebecca Anderson had 9 children.

The Anderson Generation
The Anderson Generation here traced consists of four brothers and one sister who lived in Perry County Tennessee in the early 1800's. They were John W, James, Elkanah, Sarah, and William P. Anderson. This information is on file in the Tennessee State Library,at Nashville, Tn.
The Anderson family of soutwest Virginia, from which the Tennessee branch here traced descends, is of Scotch-Irish origin. Forced to leave Scotland because of religious persectuion, members of this family settled in north Ireland, from whence they came to America and became pioneers in Augusta Co. VA.
John, George, William and James Anderson settled in the neighborhood of the famous Old Stone Church, and are supposed to have been brothers. Several other Anderson's settled in Borden's grant in what is now Rockbridge Co. Va.
Capt. John Anderson, the Revolutionary ancestor of the line traced, was born May 5, 1750, in Augusta Co. VA and was the son of William and Mary Reid Anderson. On Jan. 12, 1775, John Anderson married Rebecca Maxwell, who was born Aug. 7, 1753, in Augusta Co. Va., and died Feb. 21, 1824. She was a sister of George Jesse and David Maxwell, who were Revolutionary soldiers and who were pioneers in the early settlement of Tennessee. John and Rebecca ( Maxwell) Anderson setted in Clinch river in what became Washington Co. VA., where according to the records of Washington Co., he acquired a large smount of land. He afterward extended his possessions to include the "Block House" tract, where they went to make their home and spent the remainder of their days. The "Block House", was located in Carter's Valley, at a point where the hills, opening into a valley half a mile wide and a mile long from a pleasant spot in a rough country. The fort site was determined, as was the custom, by the presence of a fine spring. The famous "Block House" was the last station on the old Kentucky road before it passed through Moccasin gap, gateway to the Indian country. Roads from the north and south going west converged here, and it was at this point that travlers to Kentucky gathered to form parties through the hazardous journey to the new country beyond the mountains.
