9665Andersons of Ohio
- Sep 4, 2006Hey everyone. I'm new here. My name is Michele and I live in Ohio. I
have lots of surnames to question but I'll start simple. My mother
is Cheryl, her father, my grandfather, is Bruce Anderson. Bruce's
father was Arthur Francis Anderson. Arthur had a brother named
William Nicholas or Nicholas William Anderson. He was born May 9th,
1882in Morgan County, McConnelsville, Ohio. HE is my brickwall. I've
cracked my head so many times on this man.
Ok so for sanity reasons, I'll call him William because all of the
info I have found on him is either Will or William. Although my
grandfather swears they called him Nick. In every obit I've seen
where he is listed, he's listed as William. Even his marriage to his
wife he is "Will".
His father was Oliver Perry Anderson (b. June 1861 d. May 18th,
1924) and his mother Sarah Elizabeth Spencer (b.11-1861 d. Oct.
William had a sister named Etta Mae (or May) Anderson-Hill (b. April
1886 d.1983)(All of these people so far were born in Ohio, Morgan
His brother (my great grandfather) Arthur was born March 9, 1899 and
died Oct. 30, 1931.
