RE: Your Ralph Anderson
You'll find many of the family trees on are incorrect because people are just copying each others trees and NOT doing the research.

My research of my Anderson family roots in Wilkes County, NC is extensive but not perfect. It's difficult at times to sort out the families and takes a lot of work. But I'm pretty confident that the memorials I have entered and linked are correct.

RE: Your Ralph Anderson
Will you share the records you have that indicated my Ralph's parents were Mitch & Julie Benge?

Your Ralph Anderson
Just found the WWII Draft registration card for your Ralph Anderson which shows his date of birth as 22 April 1924 and he is living in Jonesville. It appears his father, Mitch Anderson, is the person he listed as 'person who will always know your address' and that he was employed by Elkin Furniture Co, Elkin, NC.

The SSDI also shows the following:

Name: Ralph Anderson
Last Residence: 75035 Frisco, Collin, Texas, USA
BORN: 22 Apr 1924
Died: 14 Nov 2007
State (Year) SSN issued: North Carolina (Before 1951

I did not look for his obituary but I suspect this is your Ralph Anderson.

Hope you are finding this information helpful.

Ralph Anderson
Find A Grave contributor OJ Taylor has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Ralph Anderson.
Link to memorial:

Email address of contributor:

Their suggestion:
Records I have are that Ralph was the Son of Mitchell Anderson and Julie L. Benge. Do you have records to prove your records or mine?



The WWII Draft Registration card for Ralph Anderson, born 8 September 1924 shows he is living at home with his mother Etta at Rt. #3, North Wilkesboro, NC. His employer's name was Clarence Duncan, Millers Creek, NC.

I have also added his obit to my memorial. I hope this clears up your confusion.

Charles Brown
I don't have any knowledge of his parents. I see you are researching the Brown surname. My Paternal Grandmother was a Brown. They lived in South Carolina.
