I read part of your blog. I noticed that Willis Anderson's wife was born about 1773. Do you think she and Willis may have gotten married about 1789 when she was 16?

In the 1790 census Willis has one female in the house and one male child. If he had just gotten married recently that would make sense. Also, since he served 7 years in the Rev, he probably didn't marry until after the war was over. I had a relative that did that.

I'm just trying to make sure I have the generations correct. Did you find any sign that the McDowells could have been relatives of the Andersons? The John McDowell who got the land warrant from Willis was possibly born near 1770. I wonder if his mother could have been a sister of Willis'? I didn't see when Willis was born.
