Notes for Amanda Elizabeth "Mandy" Alley
She must have divorced William C. Anderson soon after James H Anderson was
born, because William C. married again in 1854.

Children of Wesley Anderson and Dicey Combs were as follows:
+ 2 i Martha Matilda "Liddie"2 Anderson, born abt 1834 in , Wilkes County,
NC; died After the 1910 census of Antioch, Wilkes County, NC. She married
unknown.
3 ii William2 Anderson, born abt 1835 in , Wilkes County, NC. Notes: He
was listed as a son of Wesley Anderson in the Wilkes County School Census
on a list dtd 8 Oct 1842.

of Lovelace TWP, Wilkes County, NC. He married Mary Jane (Moore)
Anderson.
5 iv John2 Anderson, born abt 1841/42 in , Wilkes County, NC. Notes: He
appears in the 1850 Wilkes Co. census only.
6 v Harrison2 Anderson, born abt 1843 in , Wilkes County, NC; died 6 Oct
1862. Notes: He may be the same person as Wesley Anderson, age 6 in the
1850 Wilkes County census. He may also be the same person as John Anderson,
age 8 in the 1850 Wilkes County census. This needs more work.
7 vi Wesley2 Anderson, born abt 1843/44 in , Wilkes County, NC. Notes:
He appears in the 1850 Wilkes Co. census. Maybe he was Wesley Harrison
Anderson, as Harrison Anderson appears in the 1860 Wilkes Co. census at age 16.

County, NC; died After the 1910 census of Antioch, Wilkes County, NC. She
married unknown.

Notes for Martha Matilda "Liddie" Anderson
The 1870 census in Lovelace TWP shows that she was living with her
parents, at age 39, Melvin was age 11, Elizabeth age 9, and William age 6. I need
more work on those children..

The 1910 census shows she had had only one child, and was listed as Mother
in the family of Melvin Anderson.

Children of Martha Matilda "Liddie" Anderson were as follows:
+ 12 i Melvin E.3 Anderson, born abt 1862 in Wilkes County, NC. He

census in of Lovelace TWP, Wilkes County, NC. He married Mary Jane (Moore)
Anderson, born abt 1840; died aft 1880, daughter of Robert "Robin" Moore and
Sophia (Anderson) Moore.

Notes for Ausborn M. Anderson
The 1870 census for Lovelace TWP, Wilkes County, NC shows for #91 as
follows:

Osborn Anderson age 32
Mary age 29
William age 9 (maybe named William Wesley after his grandfather)
Wesley age 8 (maybe the nephew named in the 1880 census)
Joseph age 2 (should be Joanna)

Notes for Melvin E. Anderson
He is probably the Melvin Anderson listed in the 1880 census in Lovelace,
