John was the son of Daniel Anderson, but Phoebe was his daughter. She was
the one who married 2nd Nicholas Hampton. Nicholas Hampton later married
Polly Jones, who was the sister of Chief Wilson N. Jones,

Did Capt. John Anderson also have a sister named Phoebe?

Another important historic spot whose story is closely connected with the
history of Township two north, Range nineteen east, is that of Spring
Station, the location of which is indicated on the plat accompanying this
article, as lying about two miles east of Tuskahoma. Spring Station was an
important stand on the road from Fort Smith to Fort Towson, that had been
surveyed in about 1838. It was named after and operated by John Spring, an
enterprising Choctaw, who had located at this point in early days. His wife,
Sally Anderson, was the daughter of Captain John and Mary (Bohannon)
Anderson. Old Daniel Anderson, the father of Captain Anderson, lived in the
vicinity for some years. When he died, he was buried on "Dry Creek," near
Spring Station. Daniel Anderson was a white man from Virginia, who had
settled among the Choctaws in Mississippi early in the 19th Century. He
married a Choctaw woman and came to the Indian Territory at the time of the
main emigration of the Nation from Mississippi.

Phoebe Anderson, another daughter of Captain Anderson, and a sister of
Wesley and Sally, lived for many years at old Spring Station.

She seems to have been a person of importance in the community, not only for
her personal character and neighborliness but also for her executive
ability. She was owner of considerable property which included a number of
negro slaves. Her first husband was William J. Bohannon, Jr. Their son, Sam
Bohannon, married Margaret Woods, who were the parents of Amanda Bohannon,
the wife of Mr. Peter J. Hudson. Phoebe Anderson's second husband was
Nicholas Hampton. They were the parents of two sons, namely, Julius and Ben.
Ben Hampton was one of the commissioners who signed the Atoka Agreement in
behalf of the Choctaw Nation in 1897. Phoebe Anderson died at old Spring
Station and was buried at the Dry Creek cemetery. Another well known Choctaw
whose grave is in the vicinity of old Spring Station was William Bryant,
principal chief of the Choctaw Nation from 1870-4.
