In Reply to: Jennet (MEBANE) ANDERSON by Alex S. Thompson of 240

does anyone have in their date a ATHEL ANDERSON b. about 1768. I was told he was a child of WILLIAM ANDERSON AND JANET MEBANE ANDERSON. He married JEAN BYERS 3/5/1793 in Nelson county Kentucky, and 2nd. to her sister Margaret Byers 1/8/1810 in OHIO COUNTY KENTUCKY. Was told Margaret and Athel had a son named Daniel Anderson b. 8/9/1815(my grandfather said daniel was born late 1799 or early 1800) d.4/12/1889. I was told Daniels grandmother was full-blooded cherokee and lived to be 117 years old. They also had a registered hog mark of 2 smooth cropps and a v overbite on the right ear. In 1889 Daniel went to visit a sister in the clinch mountain area and when he returned home he went out squirrel hunting and after 2 days they started looking for him and found him sitting by a tree dead. Daniel married 1st. Milly Nash and then Rebecca Woosley. Athel Anderson died 10/1815 and Margaret died either during childbirth or shortly there after in 1815. I am thinking maybe that if both parents died in 1815 then maybe Daniel was raised by a child of Athel and Jean Anderson. And if indeed he was born in 1799 or 1800, I will have to rethink and regroup. Any info, no matter how small , will be helpful.
