About Letty J Anderson

III. James Anderson and Letty Bradshaw

James Anderson filed for a Revolutionary War Pension in Rockcastle County, KY on Nov. 26, 1832 at the age of 72. He stated that he was born in 1762 in Donegall Twp., Lancaster Co., PA and enlisted in the county of Northumberland, PA. (He claimed that he was 72 when he filed the pension, so may have been born in 1760). At one time he served under the command of his uncle, Captain John Wilkins. He died August 18, 1837 in Clark County.

His widow, Letty Anderson (maiden name Letty Bradshaw), applied for pension in Montgomery County, KY on May 4, 1843 at the age of 77. James and Letty were married in Fayette County, KY in February or March 1783, by a magistrate named Cleveland or by a Baptist minister named Joel Eastman.

Family Records (my note: some appear to be their children, others are probably grandchildren due to ages): Delilah Anderson, b: Dec. 3, 1807; Harrison Graves Anderson, born April 22, 1810; Bingham Graves (Anderson?), b: Mar 15, 1810; Lette or Lettes Anderson, born Nov 24, 1767; Dewitt (Anderson), born August 21, 1823 or 1833; Polly Anderson, born July 30, 1788; Sarah Anderson, born July 26, 1801; Betsy Anderson, born Nov 31, 1803; Jean Anderson, born January 17, 1805. Also two children who died in infancy who were older than Polly. No other data given.

My Note: Another researcher provided the following information:

James Anderson b. abt. 1762 m. Letty J. Bradshaw in 1783 Fayette Co., Ky. James Anderson died August 18, 1837-Clark Co., Ky. Burial place: Unknown. Letty J. Bradshaw b. Nov. 1767 died: after 1850-Montgomery or Powell Co., Ky.

Children: 1: Polly b. 1788 2: Sarah b. 1790 3: Wingate b. 1798-1800 m. Martha (Patsy) maiden name unknown 4: John b. 1799 5: Archibald b. January 26, 1801 m. Dorcas Hatton on May 24, 1828 6: Betsy b. 1803 7: Jean b. 1805 8: Delila b. 1807 m. Claiborn Barnett 9: Harrison b. 1810. Widow Letty J. Bradshaw Anderson states she had 2 children that died in infancy and born before Polly.

My note: Letty J. Anderson, age 87, appears in the 1850 Montgomery County Census (district 2 p. 60). She is listed with the family of Martha P. Young (age 35). Other family members are listed nearby (also on page 60). These include: Claiborn and Delila (Anderson) Barnett and H.G. (i.e. Harrison) and Sarah Anderson. Sons Archibald and Wingate can be found in the 1850 Clark County, KY census.
