Mary Amanda Walling was one of several daughters born to Garret Walling and Sarah Thorne. She was born in Middleton, Monmouth County, New Jersey in 1809 and at the age of 20 married Burrit Anderson. Very little is known of their early life together except what can be gleaned from census, birth, and death records.

In 1850, mar Amanda's name appears on the census with her husband Burrit and her children. By 1855, Mary Amanda had moved with her family to North Franklin where they purchased a farm on the north side of the Village of Franklin. There they lived with many of their children and grandchildren.

Sadly, sadness plagued Mary's family with the death of her two youngest children Joseph and Adelia before the move to North Franklin. The next tragedy to befall came with the death of her daughter-in-law Sarah in February 1864 and her daughter Louisa that same year. In 1866, her beloved husband Burritt passed from this life and was laid to rest near to the family home.

Live seemed to take a sunnier approach for a while as the family saw several of Mary's children wed and grandchildren born to the family. Before her death, Mary had become a great-grandmother and was surrounded by many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Mary comes from an old Quaker family which settled for a time in Rhode Island and later settled on Long Island, an early family to the town of Hempstead. Her family did much to develop this great country and a great uncle of her's was even the first Police Commissioner of New York City.
