John Anderson
Birth: Jan. 13, 1723
New York, USA
Death: Oct. 8, 1781
Kershaw County
South Carolina, USA

He married Sara Carney on November 28, 1752. John and three of his sons were in the Revolutionary War. John died because of his wounds at the Battle of Augusta Ga. having served in Col Roebuck's Regiment. John Anderson was a minute man in the militia. September 18, 1780 Battle of Augusta.Anyway, according to g/f John Anderson's file A.A.115 X3341 he served only in Col. Benjamin Roebuck's Regiment before and after the fall of Charleston, the same is true for Uncle Scarlett Anderson file A.A.124 X3343, and Uncle Joshua Anderson file A.A.117 X3342. do I KNOW for SURE that g/f John Anderson's Rev War service file is X3341...??? Because attached to it is g/m Sarah [Carney] Anderson's first petition (20 May 1786) requesting payment of the Indent as the widow of John Anderson and the mother of Scarlett and Joshua Anderson. The Indent it is attached to is dated 7 Jun 1786. Audited Account 114: I find it most curious that Indents for g/f John, uncle Scarlett, and uncle Joshua actually show that when written they were ALL "AUDITED ACCOUNT #114" - not A.A.115, 117, 124 !!!! I think what happened was our earlier cousins identified the Capt John Anderson, John Anderson Jr, and John Anderson Sr as grandpa and his son so the files were put together as one family, i.e., g/f John, uncle John Jr, uncle Scarlett, uncle Joshua. When in fact, Capt John, John Sr, John Jr were completely different persons. Marriage Notes for John Anderson and Sarah Carney: Married at the Aquia Episcopal church in Overwharton Parish, Stafford County, Virginia.
One person says that John was born in Scotland and another says that he was born in New York. Who Knows?Gravestone is in Wortham Cemetery, Wortham, Freestone County, Texas.I got this information from the but who knows if it is right. There is a lot of information out there on the net.

(According to the D. A. R. John Anderson died in Camden County, Kershaw, South Carolina..........)
