HEIRS OF WM SR. - Mrs John ROW
David, I found a little information from a book (I only have a copy of one page). It appears to be called "Further Facts on Rowe Relatives". I don't know who wrote it.
My uncle, Perry Row, sent this copy to me.
John Rau-Rowe, son of Jacob was married to Elizabeth Anderson (1777-1856). This couple had seven sons: Jake (1808-1878), George (1809-1896) John (1810-1868),
Henry (1813-1899), Peter (1815-1888), Daniel (1817-1898), and Benjamin (1820-1895). John and Elizabeth Anderson Rau moved to Indiana in 1841. John Rau's children
spelled their name Rau but their descendants spelled the family name Row and Rowe. Present day descendants spell it Rowe and pronounce it "ow" to rhyme with
"cow".
John and Elizabeth apparently returned to Pennsylvania in later years prior to their deaths. They are both buried in Rau's Church cemetery, Salem, Pennsylvania.
Hope this helps. Lori

Subject: Petition Of John Anderson & Return of Sale
Hi Everyone,
 
I've been out of touch for a while due to my wife's illness and a computer virus (Chernobyl) which fried my hard drive.  Don't worry you can't catch it.  I junked the old computer and now in operation with a new HP533mhz with a CD writer.  I started scanning the Orphan's Court documents on the real estate of William Anderson.  Attached is the first two in the series; Petition of John Anderson for Inquisition, and Return of Sale.  Actually, these are documents #1 and #4 in the sequence by date, but were on the same microfische at the courthouse.  If you don't have the capability to separate them, I can resend them as individual files.  Also, as you can see, some of the words at the right and left edge were cropped during the microfilming process.  I saw photocopies of the original documents, and was able to identify most of the missing or incomplete words. I plan to prepare a full transcription later which I will be happy to share with you, but I thought you would like to see the originals first.  Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
 
Best regards,
Bob

Subject: Re: William Anderson, Sr.
Hi Jim, Marc,Lisa, Rachel & Kay;
 
In reply to Jim's questions:
 
1) William Sr. definitely died without leaving a will, or intestate.
 
2) John Anderson who petitioned the Orphan's Court of Union County for inquest on the real estate of William Sr. was the son of William Jr. and Catherine Arnold.  It is so stated in his petition.
 
3)The eight documents I have were found in the Prothonatary's Office in the Union County Courthouse, Lewisburg.  They are both on microfilm and bound in the Orphan's Court Record Books located inside the vault.  I made copies from the microfilm machine, then looked at the larger documents in the record books to decipher words that were unreadable or missing at the edge of the microfilm.
 
4) The 75 or 100 acres of cleared land reference is exactly how it was stated in the petition.  It must have been a wild guess made by John at the time.
 
5)The property map I have is an actual draft land survey map which indicates all compass bearings for boundry lines and the adjoining property owners at the time(21Oct1799) of the original survey. The land warrent was issued 08Apr1795.  It is MS-6 contained in the Snyder Co., PA Land Surveys Name Index.  The original map(may be duplicate) is located in the library of the Snyder Co. Historical Society, Middleburg, PA.  I am going to check at the Northumberland Co. courthouse for more info on the original land warrent as the issue date would indicate.  The map indicates a spring and a stream the crosses the property.  The stream is not named.
 
6)As to the exact location of the property, my best guess at this time is about 2 miles west of the town of Port Trevorton, PA 17864.  The oldest map of Chapman Twp. that I have is dated 1868.  There is a Jacob Sechrist home and "land of J. Sechrist heirs" indicated thereon about 1 mile west of the Witmer's Church and Zion U.B. Church.  Also nearby is the Geo. Gaugler property which is one of the neighbors shown on William's survey map.  As you know, Jacob Sechrist purchased William's property at public sale.       
 
7)So far I have had no success locating a deed in the name of Jacob Sechrist for the same property.  I have checked at both Snyder and Union County Register & Recorder Offices.  Maybe he couldn't get a clear deed because of John's problems with the Ohio heirs.  I could find no evidence John showed up for the Feb1851 term of the Orphan's Court as commanded in the 10Jan1851 citation.  If he settled the accounts there must be a paper trail somewhere.  I am going to look for a Jacob Sechrist will that may provide me with another name in the string of ownership.  Anyone have any other suggestions?
 
That's all for now.
 
Bob Anderson

Subject: AnnaMariaHerrold
Hi All,
 
I got some photos back today that I took in early March.  I thought you would like this one of Anna Maria's gravestone.  The inscription reads as follows:
   
              Hier ruhet
      in dem herrn Jesu Christi
      Annamaria Arnold ehefrau von Casper
      Arnold.  Sie ist gebohren den 27 December
      in yhr 1752, Starb den 26 April
      1820.  ist alt geworden 68 yahe 8 monat
       und 29 tag.
       Friede und ruhe seg mit Ihrer asche
 
There is a plain stone next to Anna Maria's which I assume marks the location of Casper Arnold's grave.  It contains no inscription.  The original must have been destroyed.  I also have photos of the gravestones of Abraham/Kesiah/Ella Gaugler, Casper Arnold Jr., Mary Puff, and the St. John's United Methodist Church at Chapman.  Any or all are available upon request. 
 
I came upon a few interesting facts about William Anderson Sr. since our last e-mail contact. 
He died intestate.
He owned 225 acres of land in Chapman Twp. with a one story log house and a log barn, also a good orchard, and spring of water, and about seventy-five or one hundred acres of cleared land with appurtenances, adjoining lands of Peter Shaffer, John Herold, John Boyer and Gaugler's heirs.
His son Jacob was alive and living in Union County in 1840,according to court papers filed by his grandson John. Evidently, Charles Fisher was mistaken in his Snyder County Pioneers where he stated that Jacob Anderson, the innkeeper from Selinsgrove who died circa 1800, was the son of William Sr.
Grandson John petitioned the court 17Feb1840 for Inquest on the real estate of William Anderson, deceased.
Return of Inquisition to the Real Estate was made on 21May1840.  Heirs and representatives were ordered to appear by first day of next term to take a sixth of valuation.
Petition of John Anderson for order of sale was dated 16Sep1840.  Bond set at $2000.  Bond given and order executed on 17Sep1840.
Bid price of $1497 by Jacob Sechrist of Chapman Twp. confirmed by court on 14Dec1840.
Heirs of William Anderson dec'd(Andrew and Sally Mildower, George and Margaret Spangle) petition court on 14Nov1842 for a citation and attachment against John Anderson for failure to exhibit any account of  proceedings of the sale.
Attachment executed by court 10Jan1843.
Jacob Sechrist petitioned court to issue citation to John Anderson to settle account of sale of real estate in office of register 26Dec1850.
Court issues citation to John Anderson on 10Jan1851 and commands him to appear in Orphan's Court  and to settle account in the office of Register at least 30 days before court session. 
Citation served on John Anderson by sheriff on 21Jan1851.
 
Looks like we may have an old family scandle here.  I have copies of the eight original Orphan's Court documents to back up all the above.  Also have a map of William's property.  I am working on tracing deeds to present day owner, that is if Jacob Sechrist ever got a deed.  Any suggestions or questions?
 
Best regards,
Bob Anderson

Subject: New Mystery for You
Hi Jim(Marc & Lisa);
Today I went to the FHS/LDS and the Northumberland Co. courthouse. I have
38 pages of info on the Arnolds and Herrolds to fill in the gaps and add
more facts, plus lots of history stories to share.
Jim: George Arnold Sr./Mary Elizabeth Strayer's children were: Elizabeth,
Henry, George Jr., John S., Catherine, Magdalene, Mary, Benjamin and
Samuel.
I think John S. was the son who inherited the farm as he is not listed with
the other children in George's will. Why he is referred to as "Jacob" in
the will puzzles me. Charles Fisher in "Snyder Co. Pioneers" also does not
list a son Jacob.
The subject reference to a mystery lies in what I found at the
Northumberland courthouse. The index to wills lists a William Anderson from
Buffalo Township with letters filed Nov. 7, 1805 with James H. Anderson
listed as administrator. Buffalo Township is now in Union County, not far
from where I live. This couldn't be either of our Williams. Maybe he is
the other William referred to in Fisher's book as William Jr. who also
served in the Lancaster Co. Militia. Where he came from and who his
offspring were is the mystery. I came across another reference to him in
the Annals of Buffalo Valley, pg 244 and 299, where he is listed as a
resident of Buffalo Township in 1787, and East Buffalo township in 1796. I
think this is "just another Anderson" with no connection to our line. What
do you think? He was the only William in the North'd courthouse records.
I was flabbergasted today to see the Northumberland Co.
courthouse operation. Can you believe they are still handling original
documents? Fred Reed, the manager, retrieved the letters for William, from
a steel box 10' up the wall, with a pole. I didn't have time to go down
into their basement dungeon to view the lists of property, etc. I may get a
chance to do that later as I want to look up Jacob Anderson's letters of
admin. that are also there. Handling those old documents made me nervous,
as they were folded, and very fragile. It looked to me like document
preservation isn't high on their priority list.
If anyone has any questions or comments, send them back.
Bob Anderson

Subject: Re: more info/revised dates
FW: more info/revised datesHi Jim;
I'll be going to Northumberland Co. on 3/29 to view film I ordered from the
Church of LDS. I will swing by the courthouse and see if a William
Anderson, Sr. will is on file there. Today I was at the Union Co.
courthouse and viewed the George Arnold, Sr will and Rebecca Anderson's
letters of administration. John Anderson(I assume her grandson) was listed
as administrator, with some personal property going to Jacob Anderson(I
assume another grandson). The letters were dated 17May1839 which at least
establishes the year of death. Or am I assuming too much? I am going back
later this week to look at other Anderson letters of administration, so if
you want me to look for something specific, let me know. George Arnold's
will left 140 acre plantation and sawmill to his son Jacob provided he cared
for George's widow. The remaining 8 children split $1400 share- and- share-
alike parceled out so that each child received his $175 share over a 16 year
period. His primary heir surprised me, as up until today I found no record
of a son Jacob. I thought Henry was his eldest son. But that's the fun part
of genealogy...the surprises. I should have the full history of the Arnolds
by this weekend. I'll bet Lisa already knows about Jacob. Jim and Lisa,
let me know if you want a copy of the 1999 compilation of the Zion United
Brethren Cemetary gravesites. The one listed on the Snyder County
Historical Society webpage only covers about half of the actual number
there.
Best regards,
Bob Anderson

Hi Lisa,
Happy to hear you have your Gedcom on Rootsweb, it works pretty slick & the backup of Gedcom is a real bonus.
1) In what County was William Sr. listed in 1820?
      Union county, Washington Twp.  page 108
2) In what county did you find Zach Sr & Jr., in 1808?
Zachariah in 1810 census
     Cumberland county,  Greenwood Twp which I think is now Perry County
3) I have been working with a few others & have made some progress on Spangle line.  If Zacharis Sr. is born abt. 1739, then I would think Mary (Polly) Anderson would have to be married to Zacharis Jr.
    I know it was not uncommon, but there seems to be a significant age difference.
Also that is what I found on the LDS site.  It also listed Zacharis Sr.'s children as well, when I did a search for Zacharis Spangle.
Actually there are at least three files on the Spangle line on the LDS site at <http://www.familysearch.org>

4) Patricia Seaver, provided me with all the data on the descendants of Jacob Spangle. (see below)
 
This is everything I have on the Spangle line, shown below.
wow. I had very little on the Spangles....only enough to try to help Esther SpangleThe last I knew she still didn't have a computer and was handicapped.
CONCLUSION:
 Mary (Polly) Anderson would have to move up in the birth order. Does it fit in with your census findings?
 Oh, let me see...........(digging into the file)........
In 1800 - Cumberland Co, Greenwood Twp....Page 60  we have Zachariah Spangle with 3 males under 10 years old.....2 males 10-16......1 male 16-26  and 1 male 45+    followed by 1 female under 10.....1 female 10-16.....1 female 26-45
In 1810 - Cumb co, Greenwood twp...page 45  we have  Zachariah Spangle with 1 male under 10.... 1 male 10-16....2 males 16-26.....1 male 26-45 and 1 male 45+       followed by 1 female 16-26........and 1 female 45+
I think that's all I could find....Zachariah was not that common.  I just found the ones in the index, however, the indexes are very unreliable - I just didn't take the time to search the entire county (or the surrounding counties, considering Zach sr supposedly died in Dauphin county.).
Must go.........soon time for bed & I have much to do..................Lisa
 
REGARDS....JIM

Subject: more info/revised dates
Hi, Jim!
I'm back again like a bad penny. I spent several hours at the library looking for census information to better estimate William Anderson, Sr's children's dates of birth. I had mixed results. I mostly couldn't find these people!!!!!! However, that did not deter me from refining some of the date ranges. I hope this makes sense.
William, Sr. b. 1740-1750 d. 1820-1830*
John b. Oct 19, 1774
Henry b. 1775-1784
Elizabeth b. Nov 16, 1777
William, Jr. b. 1778-1784 d. 1824-1830*
Rebecca b. 1780-1784
Sarah b. 1785-1794
Jacob b. 1791-1794
Polly b. 1791 - ?
*I know what Fisher's Probate & Administrations says, but it wouldn't be the first time someone was wrong. I have a book which says my Aurand relation married an Emerick widow based on a certain document - well, I found that document and all it does is grant the Aurand power-of-attorney to get money from her husband's estate for her since she had moved away.
William, Sr. in 1790 age over 16 3 males less than 16, 4 females
in 1800 age 45 + 1male under 10, 2 males 16-26
1 female under 10, 1 female under 16, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 45+
in 1810 age 45+ 1 male 16-26, 1 female 16-26, 1 female 45+
in 1820 age 45+ 1 female 45+ (Rebecca)
in 1830 William, Sr dead Rebecca age 80-90 living with Jacob
William, Sr born before 1755 (1800-45=1755)
Rebecca born 1740-1750 (1830-80=1750 1830-90=1740)
William, Jr. in 1810 age 26-44 so in 1800 he must have been 16-34,
but must have been one of the sons aged 16-25 sooo must have been born 1775-1784 (1800-16=1784 and 1800-25=1775).
In 1810 he had 2 children under 10 so must have been married less than 10 years but more than 3 years, therefore married between 1800-1807.
Wife Catherine Arnold was a widow in 1830, aged 40-50, but in 1810 she was aged
26-44 so subtracting 20 from her age in 1830 means in 1810 she would have been
20-30, but since the category started at 26, she must have been 26-30 in 1810 and
therefore born 1780-1784. In 1830 her youngest child was 5, so William, Jr must have
died between 1824-1830.
It is reasonable to assume that the husband and wife were close to the same ages, give or take a couple of years (its surprising how many wives were older than their husbands). Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that
William, Sr was born 1740-1750 and William, Jr was born 1778-1784.
John - was born Oct. 19. 1774 which means he was 15 in 1790 - all the sons were under 16 so the census must have been conducted before October 19. He was in Canada by the 1800 census. He must have been the oldest son.
Henry - in 1790 was under 16
in 1800 he was 16-25, subtracting 10 years to go back to 1790, he was 6-15 yrs old and
therefore
born 1775-1784.
Jacob - in 1800 was under 10
in 1810 he was 16-25
in 1820 I couldn't find him
in 1830 he was 30-40, backtracking to 1810 he would have been 10-20, but was at least 16 on that census, so must have been 16-20 in 1810, and 6-9 in 1800, therefore he must have been born
1791-1794.
Elizabeth was born Nov 16, 1777. I couldn't find the correct John Row - there were many of them.
Rebecca - I believe I found the correct George Spangler in 1800. She was 16-25, he was 26-44 and they had no children, so must have been recently married and before Elizabeth.
In 1830 she was 40-50, backtracking to 1800 would have made her 10-20 and since she
was in the 16-26 category, she must have been 16-20 in 1800 and
born 1780-1784
Sarah - I couldn't find Andrew Mildower anywhere in PA, I did find an Andrew Mittawer, but they were 45+ in 1810 and couldn't possibly be the right ones. Unless she & her husband were living with his parents, in which case she would have been 16-25, making her born
1785-1794.
Polly - She must have married Zachariah Spangle, Jr. Zach, Sr. was far too old. The only thing
I have is that Zach, Jr was taxed in 1808 separately from his father and must have been on
his own, possibly married. I couldn't tell whether Sarah or Polly was the youngest, but one
of them was born after the 1790 census.
In answer to your most recent e-mail. The early US censuses were extremely frugal with information. Basically, they only listed numbers of persons under an age category, divided by sex. It wasn't until 1850 that individuals were named (other than the head of household) and places of birth and other information was added. Sometimes the microfilm is unreadable because its so faint. And of course, 1890 was destroyed in a fire. The census indexes are not reliable. I was trying to find a certain Lutz ancestor in Lancaster county, PA. Well, there are a ton of Lutzs, so I went through the county page by page and crossed off each one from the index as I found him. I found 1 Lutz unlisted for every 8 listed. I finally found my ancestor living near a family with his wife's maiden name. If I hadn't known that, I'd still be looking. Anyway, we can try the will & land record route and hope they survived. I've heard a lot of Northumberland's records were destroyed in various floods. The court house is located about 1 block from the Susquehanna River, and they keep the records in the basement. I've been there....it's like a dungeon. That will have to be a day trip for me sometime, its 1.5-2.0 hour drive away. I wonder if Bob Anderson would be interested. He's closer than I am..
Take care................................Lisa

We had a nice day on Sunday and checked out St. John's United Methodist
Church Cemetery in the village of Chapman, along the Susquehanna River
south of Selinsgrove. We found there:
Elijah Anderson, d. Oct. 31, 1892; 72 y., 9 m., 16 d.
Catharine Anderson, w/o Elijah, d. Dec. 13, 1893; 76 y., 7 d.
James M. Anderson, April 6, 1854-Nov. 17, 1899.
Lucetta Anderson, [w/o James,] Dec. 25, 1854-Nov. 7, 1916.
We also met Bob Anderson of Lewisburg, PA, who coincidentally was
searching for Andersons. He confirms my reading of the above tombstones.
You may want to contact him at <[email protected]>
We checked out the cemetery at Aline, a village in neighboring Perry
Township and found:
Frank L. Anderson, April 3, 1861-May 3, 1921.
Suppora E. Anderson, w/o Frank, Nov. 14, 1858-Jan. 14, 1927.
I also looked for the Spanglers on your list, but couldn't find any of
them. We should check Grubb's Church Cemetery to be complete, but as your
people are all 19th century folks they should be in Wagenseller and aren't.
Also checked Row's Church and Selinsgrove without success.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. Maybe Mr. Anderson of Lewisburg can
tell you more. He seemed eager to share his information.
Good luck,
Tom

Subject: Anderson revisited again
Dear Jim,
    You are right, I did not get that last e-mail.  If we keep this up, we just may come to an agreement - horrors! 
   Do you have copies of the census reports?  I keep referring to them assuming that you have them.  Let me know if you don't.
 
I think we'll have to find a copy of the Anderson wills to determine any order of children, however I don't think we should put a lot of faith in that order.  I have just come to the conclusion that Jacob, not Henry was the youngest son.  On the 1830 census for Chapman twp, Union Co page 317 we have Jacob Anderson age category 30-40 making him born between 1790-1800.  He has a female in his household aged 80-90.  Assuming this is his mother,  William sr's widow, Jacob must be the youngest son.
 
The best I am comfortable with for now is:             age on 1800 census:     estimate of birth date:
 
John               b. Oct 19, 1774                                      in Canada               1774
William Jr.       b. 1775-1784                                            16-25                   1776 (early)
Elizabeth        b. Nov 16, 1777                                      married?                  1777
Henry             b. 1775-1784                                             16-25                    1784
Jacob             b. 1790-1800                                              under 10               1790 after census
Rebecca         b. 1775-1784                                              16-25                    1782
Sarah             b. 1785-1790                                               10-15                   1787
Polly              b. 1790-1800                                               under 10               1792
 
(I had to use the order in the Probate records for the last 3 daughters, I have no idea in what order they were born - Rebecca may have been older that William jr.)  There are a lot of variables - the last 2 children might have been twins for all we know.
 
I'm going to have to look for more census records.  It irritates me that I can't find William jr in 1820.  There are too many William Andersons and the ones I've found in various townships & counties just don't seem to match.  He may have been in another state or visiting his brothers in Canada. Who knows!
 
Enough for now.............................Lisa

I'm not so sure about William Anderson, Sr. being in Leacock twp. I was
looking at tax records for Leacock Twp, Lancaster co. and I didn't see
any William Andersons. There is/was a Breaknock twp. (sound-alike), but
I don't have any notes that I looked there. Here's a copy of what I
sent to Marc Thompson:
I don't know if this will help, but once over at the State Archives I
jotted this down:

Subject: RE: Anderson/Spangler
Hi Jim,
I am at work and my info is at home but will try to answer your questions
as best I can. I have viewed a lot of the records from there via the
Morman churches microfilm. Some where in the vital statistics I found a
marriage of George Mitchell to Eliza Anderson on October 24, 1817. While I
cannot tie this directly to George and Elizabeth Mitchell of census record
they first listed as a couple in 1820 and onward to 1880 when they would
have both been around 86 years old. My Gr-Grandfather, George Mitchell,
their son, left PA in 1871 with his wife Elizabeth (Spangler) and three
children one of which was my Grandfather Ed Mitchell. They settled in
Eastern Kansas and remained on the same farm until Ed Mitchell and his wife
Elizabeth (Bailey) died around 1945. I have never been able to tie Eliza
(I am guessing short for Elizabeth) to any Anderson although I have found
some in the censuses. I felt that maybe you had some information on them.
As you can see, things get complicated with 5 generations having 4 Georges
and 4 Elizabeths. I don't know how they kept each other straight.
I hope you will keep in touch and if I should come across anything, I'll
forward it to you.

Jim,
On page 2 of "Snyder County Pioneers", Dr. Charles A. Fisher, the following:
"WILLIAM ANDERSON was a tanner, and a resident, but not a land owner in Leacock
Township, Lancaster County, PA., in 1771. He was assessed in Penn Township for the
first time in 1778 and at that time was taxed with 50 acres of land and personal
property. When Mahantango Township was formed from the lower part of Penn in 1796,
he was assessed there. William Anderson, Senior and William Anderson, Junior wered
in the 4th Company, 6th Battalion of the Lancaster Co., Militia, the former in the
6th class and the latter in the 2nd class. The compiler does not know which of
these two men came to what is now Snyder County. One of them received a pension
for having served in the Northumberland County Rangers during the Revolution. In
1778 he asked for tax exemption."
Regards,
John Shipman Hendricks

Abt 1780                 Northumberland, PA
I don't think Esther Spangle has an e-mail address.
I have not been able to find a record of William Sr's death or tombstone.  I find fault with his date of birth of 1755 which would make him 12 years old when William Jr was born.  Not impossible, but highly unlikely.  From Probate and orphans Court Records of Snyder County by Charles A. Fisher:
William Anderson, died  about 1832, and Rebecca, his wife, ante 1840. Their son Wm., married Catherine dau. of Casper Arnold, Sr.      Chapman township (Snyder Co., PA)      Heirs:  William - dead (he left John, George of Franklin Co., PA, Peter of Seneca Co., NY, Samuel of Manchester, O., Polly and Elijah, the last two under 21), John (living in Canada), Elizabeth (Mrs. John Row), Jacob, Henry (in Canada), Rebecca (Mrs. George Spangler of Seneca Co., Ohio), Sarah (Mrs. Andrew Mildower of Ohio), Polly (Mrs. Zach. Spangle or Spangler).
I am a descendant of William Jr's son, Elijah.  I live in south central Pennsylvania.  Welcome, cousin.  Let me know if you have any questions/answers.

Hi Jim,
Yes, I got your message. I don't check my e-mail
everyday. I have other members of the family to fight with
for computer time, and since I go to bed around 8:00PM it
kinda limits my time to weekends.
I just spend several hours at a local university library
doing research. It has the US Census reports on microfilm
for Pennsylvania. I found that our William Anderson goes
back to the 1780's in Northumberland County (at least).
There were a ton of William Andersons in the census index,
but I'm keying in on the one near Casper Arnold since his
daughter Catherine married William Jr. At one point there
were 3 William Andersons (father, son and I suppose grandson
going by ages). Unfortunately, back that far there isn't
much to go on and you have to approximate ages. Are you
familiar with the Census reports?
William Sr and William Jr seemed to vanish in 1820,
then Widow Anderson appeared in Chapman township in 1830 which would have been Union County at that time. She was William Jr's widow (going by age and the fact that she was near Casper Arnold, her brother). I'm probably not making much sense to you right now.
To recap:
1810 Northumberland County, Mohantango Twp.
Anderson, William, Tanner age 45+
Anderson, William Jr. age between 26-45 but less than 45
Arnold(s), Casper, George & Philip
1810 Northumberland County, E. Buffalo Twp.
Anderson, James, Fur age under 26
Anderson, John, Cooper age under 26 apparently unmarried
Anderson, Andrew, Shoemaker age under 26 apparently unmarried
Anderson, William age under 26 apparently unmarried
1820 Census, no sign of William Anderson(s) in Northumberland or Union Counties. One or both may have been dead at that time or may have been living with a son. There was a John Anderson in Union Co, Buffalo twp and one in Union Co, Centre twp, but I didn't copy anything on them - sorry. I'll try to do it next time (whenever that is).
1830 Union County, Chapman Twp.
Anderson, Jacob age 30- under 40
Anderson, Widow age 40- under 50 with 3 sons and a daughter under 20.
(she was between 26 and under 45 in 1810, adding 20 years would put her between 46 and under 65 - so since she was in the 40- under 50 category in 1830, that would make her between 46 and under 50 in 1830 so that would place her birth between 1780 and 1784.)
Arnold(s), Philip jr, Philip, Casper, George Geroge jr.
Lets see, what else did I find? You must bear with me, I
was also looking up other family names.......
Early (tax) assessment records for Union and Northumberland counties (Mary Belle Lontz, compiler) have
William Anderson and Casper Arnold listed in Mohantango twp in 1807 and 1796.
Wills and Administrations (letters) for Northumberland
County (Charles A. Fisher, compiler) have letters of administration for Rebecca Anderson, deceased, Chapman twp. issued to John Anderson around 05/17/1839.
Uh oh .... this would seem to indicate that your John Anderson was not the same line. If I remember.. the next time I go to the library, I'll look up all the John Andersons around 1790 and 1800 to see where they were located in PA. Unfortunately, the wife's and children's names were not recorded until 1850 and after.
In the meantime, good luck with your researches.
Lisa

Hi Jim,
I'm not sure how much info I have communicated to you so far but the
Mitchel connection to the Anderson/Spangler group is as follow: On October
24, 1817, George Mitchell b.1794 married Eliza (Elizabeth) Anderson b.179?.
They lived in the Penn's creek area until about 1886. Their son George
b.1828 married Elizabeth (Elizebeth) Spangler b.1832. Their first child,
Mary Jane was born April 27, 1851 in Union Co. PA and I have no other
information on this child. In 1871 George and Elizabeth moved to KS with
Ed b.1853, William b.1856 and Harriet b.1858. After Elizabeth (Spangler)
died in 1892, George moved back to PA and married Mary (in 1897), the widow
of George C. Spangler. George Mitchell lived until 1914 and Mary lived
until 1911.
Some of my history references indicate that the Mitchel's and the
Spangler's may have lived as neighbors on Penn's creek and the Mitchel's
may have sold a mill to the Spangler's at one time.
Thanks for the information that you sent and if there is any way I can
help you, I will be glad to.

And in the 1700's two Capt. James Anderson's who married Jane Tate (Rev.

David, I found a little information from a book (I only have a copy of one page). It appears to be called "Further Facts on Rowe Relatives". I don't know who wrote it.
1. Biography of John Rau-Row-Rowe was compiled from the Rowe Family
Genealogy - updated in 1968 by Jack Rowland Rowe of Elkhart, Indiana.
My uncle, Perry Row, sent this copy to me.
John Rau-Rowe, son of Jacob was married to Elizabeth Anderson (1777-1856). This couple had seven sons: Jake (1808-1878), George (1809-1896) John (1810-1868),
Henry (1813-1899), Peter (1815-1888), Daniel (1817-1898), and Benjamin (1820-1895). John and Elizabeth Anderson Rau moved to Indiana in 1841. John Rau's children
spelled their name Rau but their descendants spelled the family name Row and Rowe. Present day descendants spell it Rowe and pronounce it "ow" to rhyme with
"cow".
John and Elizabeth apparently returned to Pennsylvania in later years prior to their deaths. They are both buried in Rau's Church cemetery, Salem, Pennsylvania.
Hope this helps. Lori

Sorry, I can't help you on the proving the John Anderson part. I do have the name of Elizabeth's husband though. It is John Rau. John's father is Jacob Rau (1759-1795) Elizabeth (1777-1856) is buried in the Row/Salem Cemetery in Salem, PA (Snyder Co.). Her husband John (1777-1855) and she moved to Indiana in 1841. They apparently moved back prior to their death. The moving part of the information was from a posting on the GenForum July 6, 1998 from Lori Parks. She had his death and birth date as 1775-1856 and I think she got this from Ruth Row Clutcher's book. It is very plain on the tombstone and it is in the Biographical Record of Salem Church Cemetery that his death and birth dates are 1777-1855.

No, wrong guess. This is Rozzy Wells. My mom was a Rowe from Indiana. We
traveled to the Row/Salem Church because my direct ancestor, George was the
first one buried there. John and Elizabeth spelled their last name Rau.
You might want to check there. I am not sure where Cheryl (the one that
typed it) got her information. I got my information from person that did
the original record of the cemetery. Also we were there and I believe I got
a picture of the gravestone. Let me look. Yep. I attached them. They may
not be the best pic's but keep in mind, they are old graves. One pic,
apparently I had the sun in the wrong place, so I enclosed the one that I
took at an angle too.

PENNSYLVANIA - RESEARCH
1) Book - " Deed Abstracts & Revolutionary War Oaths Of Allegiance of Lancaster County, PA", first published in 1965. contains deed books 1729-1770. $25,00 & sold by The Bookmark", P.O. Box 90 Knightstown, IN (Indiana) 46148.
- This book was recommended by David G. Moore in his article on the PA, Lancaster, tales web page. Migration Pattern Of The Scotch-Irish Moore's 1717 to 1775. He quotes parts of the book in the following.
- "The greatest relative importance of Irish migration to America was from 1717 to 1775. Oh sure, there were some earlier & some later - however this is the "bulk" of the Scotch-Irish.
- 1st wave 1717-1718 (many hundreds of ships arrived)...
- 2nd wave 1727-1729 (even greater in number).
- Pennsylvania was their favorite colony, the coastline area was already over-populated, in their opinion, so they had to settle West of Philadelphia in Lancaster Co (about 45 miles). No doubt some had arrived earlier & were in Philadelphia & New Jersey & Maryland, Mass, NY & everywhere else, but again we are talking about the "bulk" of the Scotch-Irish".
In the 1720's & 30's they spread West towards what is now Cumberland Valley & probably a few even dared to cross the mountains farther West toward what is today Pittsburgh. There were ill feelings between the Germans camps & the Irish camps in PA around 1740 & many a riot took place during election times.
