 Researching: ANDERSON - No. Carolina

I am searching information on the Anderson family from Granville, NC from 1825-1870. Here is the info that I have: Sandy Anderson (b) 1825, Granville, NC. His mother  is believed to be Files Anderson of the same county. They are listed as mulatto. I believe that they were free because Sandy is listed on the 1830 census as being 5 yrs old and if he were a slave his name wouldn't be listed, only the age of the slave master's slaves. Help

Researching: WEST - No. Carolina

Researcher: Alice West Ferguson

19 October 2005

Hello, I am at a brickwall with my g grandfather: Silas West b. 1832, NC, d. Jan 1900 - Apr. 1910, Sampson, NC, Siblings not sure.  married date not available. Winifred "Winnie" Barefoot b. abt. 1845, Johnston County, NC. d. after May 26, 1931, Johnston Co, NC at age 85.


According to the 1870 census, he was married to Winnie with 3 children, Westbrook Township, Sampson County, NC.  I have the information on the Barefoot ancestors. I need information on the West ancestors. One reason, I can not find Silas West parents is that he does not have a birth or death certificate or a marriage bond. He died before the birth and death certificates were issues in 1913.


Where was he before the 1870 census, I can not find anything. In the census, that I have found he lived in the same block as Lloyd West b, 1800, Sampson County, NC whom I think could be his father. No proof. He was very close to the West family and it does seem that there is a connection there.


We have done the WEST DNA Project and matched 12 out of 12 markers with James West, b, 1798, SC.
