Descendants of George Wiley Anderson


(1) George Wiley1 Anderson was born about 1800 at Greenville, SC, USA, and married Sarah Sallie Lawson who was born in 1798 at VA, USA. George Wiley died about 1864 at Ga. Sarah LAWSON died in 1886 in Christian Co., MO. Sarah Sallie was married to Jacob Roller.

According to family tradition George Wiley Anderson was hanged in Georgia accused of being a Union spy.

Dates for Sarah "Sallie" Lawson birth and death are from gravemarker in Christian County, Missouri

His father was John Anderson. His siblings were William, Thomas, Ewin, Robert, Mary Jane and David Quinton. His father died in 1837.

Yet another researcher has another database which lists this family as not being the lineage of George Wiley Anderson. It can be seen HERE.

There was an earlier marriage of a Billingsley to Zubudee Anderson that would have put him about the age to be a parent or ancestor of George Wiley might be a good idea to check into this.
Andersons living in Hancock TN on the 1850 census:
C.H. Anderson

A couple of Rootsweb databases lists George Wiley Anderson as the son of a John
 Anderson and Mary Terry.  It is possible that George Wiley Anderson is part of this family:
In the Genealogies of Families Descended from S. C. Revolutionary Soldiers.
  John Anderson who marries Mary Terry is listed as the son of James Anderson,
 who filed a Revolutionary claim in Camden Dist. later Chester.  James Anderson
 died 28 Oct 1807 and married Nancy Ewing and had nine children.   John 
Anderson (b.1784  d. 1837) and Mary Terry, identified as the daughter of Thomas
 Terry, have ten children that I'm listing here.

Hiram E. Payne was son of Enoch Payne & Sarah England. Hiram married 1st in Hawkins Co. TN to Mary Anderson, d/o Wyle Anderson & Sally Lawson. They had 10 children of which two died in infancy in Scott Co., VA. They went to MO and were there on 1860 Census with 7 children, Sarah the youngest was one year old & Anderson G. was the oldest. They had another daughter born after 1860 census named Mary Ann. She married D. A. Neal and in Claiborne Co.

Payne was also in Claiborne Co., TN on the 1870 Census. He married Elizabeth Day. His father (Hiram E. Payne) was killed in Scott Co., VA, August 1865, by horse theives, bushwhackers. Anderson was shot in knee and crippled for life, and my Great Grandfather, who was 1st cousin to Hiram E. Payne, Hiram England Sr., bearly escaped getting kille also. Hiram E. Paynes 1st wife died in MO, he cam back to his farm in Scott Co. & married December 2, 1863 to Kisirie Bloomer, d/o Nehemiah Bloomer & Mary Bledsoe. She gave birth in January 1866 to Hiram P. Payne.

He was a brother to Mary Anderson Payne that married Hiram E. Payne. This land was near Fairview, VA.

Scott Co., Va Deed Book 5, page 330. Praise Bill of Hiram Payne estate. 13 Feb 1866 included 4 lots of Books. signed by Thomas B. Wolfe, James Tyree and George W. Powers.

According to Eula Mae McNutt after Hiram E. Payne died and his son, Anderson needed some money and wanted to sell his part so there had to be some surveying done to determine what was A. Y. Clinks and Mary Polly Payne Clicks and what was Hiram E's lands. This surveying business & Court Case is on file in Scott Co. Va. Of course it once all belonged to Old Enoch Payne.

22 viii Mary Ann Payne was born in 1861 at Claiborne Co., Tn, and married Derias A. Neal, son of Robert Neal and Cornelia Rose, who was born about 1850 at Claiborne Co., Tn.
The follwoing is a note from Eula Mae McNutt and contains some references to Mary Ann Payne.
Mary Ann visited Cousin John Parker Payne in MO. Payne brothers came from England and settlein in MO becasue very wealth - Great Grandmother was Scotch.
Grandpa's grandmother was a Parker.
From Auut Mary Ann's letter to Hassie Payne Cook. "I said my mother's name was Parker I mean my Grandmother. My mother's name was Anderson. My mother's sister taken. we children in with her after Fathers death. She married a man by the name of Begley. You have heard William (Aunt Mary's brother, Hassie's father) speak of them and Uncle Epps Anderson". ----------------------------------------------------------------- August 10, 1881 Mary Ann Neal & D. A. Neal to Enoch Payne for hundred dollars 9th part in old homestead of Hiram E. Payne in Scott Co., Va.
Claiborne Co., Tn Wit A. G. Payne O. H. Cunningham ---------------------------------------------
In the book Old Time Tazewell Mary Hansard says on page 20 that Derias Neal, the oldest son of Cornelia Rose and Robert Neal of Powell Valley, married a daughter of Andrew Paynes, and lived a few years and died. He was a consistent member of the Baptist Church at Springdale.
There is no doubt that this is Mary Payne, sister of Anderson Payne, daughter of Hiram. Eula Mae McNutt said that Mary Payne married D.A. Neal. Evidently Mary Hansard has confused the parents as Mary had come to Claiborne Co. to live with Anderson after their father was killed in Virginia. I am not sure if Mary and Derias Neal had children.

Glad to know the correct name of Jesse Rogers' wife. I had found a marriage in Maury Co TN for a Jesse Rogers and Lucinda Akin on 17 May 1827. Everything seemed to fit except the county, so I knew it was "iffy." Glad to know Lucinda's name was Rice. Do you know when and where they were married? Do you know anything about her family? Do you have any idea who Jesse's parents were? Someone told me they thought he might descend from Doswell Rogers b. 1736 Lunenberg Co VA.

Thanks again for the help,

I am trying to go thru stacks of papers and file everything. I know that we have sent e-mails several times, but I have forgotten just which Rogers line you descend from. The last time you wrote you were trying to get your database going again.
I think I had asked you if you had any data on the John Rogers who lived in Scott Co., but seemed to be isolated from the other Rogers group who lived around the Clinch River. We have been making progress and now think that James Rogers, who had sons and grandsons named Thuman and Moses, is the son of old Doswell b. 1736. He appears to be the James who signed the deposition of 1811/1812 with old Doswell and Thomas. He later owns land once granted to old Doswell.
Anyway, if you wouldn't mind telling me again where you come from, I promise to write it down in a save place this time. LOL

Hi Joe, I found your site quite some time ago, at the beginning of the year. I took some info from your report regarding the story of the bushwhacker tha attacked Williaim Lyon and Hiram England. Alot of your family names are connected with mine. My ggggrandfather was Isom or Isham Edens, the Edens whose home that Hiram went to in Dry Valley. Now as to his son's name "David" I find no record of Isham having a son named David, but he did have a son named Daniel that was married to Lavicie Ellen Lyon. I'm pretty sure it was Daniel and not David. I was hoping you might have more info on Isham and his wife Martha Begley. Also on Lavicie Ellen Lyon and the rest of her family. If you records are correct in that Isham had a son named David married to a Lucille Ellen Lyon, could you reference your source for me.
