About Charles Månsson Anderson

Charles Månsson, better known during his lifetime as Charles Anderson, was born c. 1664 in Delaware. He married around 1700 (name of wife unknown) and established his home at first at the head of the Northeast River, close to Hans Justis and Andrew Friend, both also Swedes. By 1712, he was actively engaged in Indian trading with Andrew Friend. Around 1720, he moved to Monocacy Creek, near the Potomac River. As an Indian trader, he was called upon by the Maryland government in 1722 and 1725 to bring Shawnee chiefs from present Oldtown, Maryland, to his house for peace negotiations. In 1734 land was surveyed for him on the Potomac River in Frederick County, Virginia (now Berkeley County, WV).

He turned this land over to his son, Joseph Mounts, and moved on to Oldtown, Maryland, where he lived for the remainder of his life. In 1740, at the age of 75, he signed an affidavit for use in the Pennsylvania-Maryland boundary dispute. He died shortly thereafter.

Of Charles Anderson's family, the only proven member was his son Joseph Mounts, who was born about 1700 and married Catharine Williams, by whom he had three sons (Providence, Joseph and William Mounts) who perpetuated the surname Mounts for succeeding generations.
