Minerva and John Anderson

I am searching for the descendant's of Minerva and John Anderson who are in the census of Maury County Tennessee. They are listed as black. She is listed as born about 1828. there is a daughter also listed as Minervia Emmaline Anderson.I believe this is at least an all or partial native american family. Later this Minerva is listed as a widow of one year in Limestone county Alabama with this same Emmaline in her home as in tn. born in 1864. I am certain of this Emmaline as she raised my grandmother Emmaline "Jones" Anderson born 1905 Limestone Alabama, on the Anderson Plantation, owned by Charlie and or "Jack" Anderson. There appears to be a gr gr grandmother missing according to one of these censuses. Dr. Sidney Anderson told us Dr John Jack Anderson was from Uniontown Alabama. I have talked with several people of several races claiming this same heritage; but with no more information than I. I believe that these ancestors sojourned in these counties in alabama and tennessee. Maury and lincoln tn. Green, Marengo, Wilcox, perry, and clay/benton/talladega/aniston counties alabama. For any researchers in these lines I would be glad to exchange info as I have a great deal more.
