John Laurens North I am researching John Laurens North and see that the information from the marker/text shows he died in 1817.
I have a copy of his will leaving all his worldly goods to Eliza Elliott North, his wife. This is recorded in Will Book B, Page 255 and recorded on 24 March 1848, State of South Carolina.
Do you have your original photos and could there be a miss read on the death date? If not, I don't think that John Laurens was my guy. But he was married to the same Eliza Elliott North I have a great deal of info on.
Thank you for linking Maria to your Robert Anderson
Martin, You are absolutely right, Maria Anderson (the mother of Dr. John Anderson) is already linked to another Robert Anderson. This listing (47576155) is a duplication from 2010 of a 2006 memorial (14778902). They have different listings as to spouses.
There are 60 different family trees for Dr. John Anderson (1820-1886, Memorial# 26958380) on ancestry but I refer you to the best sourced one.
Duplicate and erroneous listing of grandfather of John 47576155
Robert 63948562 (your memorial) father of John and son of Gen Robert
Mother of John 60061475 Wife of father not grandfather
It would be impossible for Maria to be the mother of John and the spouse of the erroneous listing of grandfather of John 47576155 since the grandfather died before John was born.
It is all rather confusing with the 2 Roberts (or 3 if we count the erroneous duplicate), but I have researched it back and forth and this is the conclusion I have come to. However we should all keep an open mind and if I and others are mistaken we should be corrected.
Thought someone might want to know that there are two Memorials for the same person. Yours (#20167215) has the is correct dates as verified by the Tombstone. Memorial #39780518 has incorrect dates. It was created by Ann and I was going to send her a message but am not able to as it has been disabled.
If I'm wrong please disregard. I'd appreciate ot of you could let me know one way or the other.
