16. FAITH14 ANDERSON (MARY13 JORDAN, MARY12 BROWN, WILLIAM11 BROWNE, THOMAS10, THOMAS9, JOHN8, THOMAS7, CHRISTOPHER6, CHRISTOPHER5, JOHN4 BROWN, JOHN3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born 1727 in "Arnols" Surry Co. VA, and died Bef. October 20, 1776 in Nottoway Co. VA. She married PELEG FERGUSON Aft. 1750 in Amelia Co. VA. He died 1796 in Nottoway Co. VA.

Notes for FAITH ANDERSON:
No contemporary birth record has been found. James Grant Anderson gives her birth as 1724. Faith Anderson would have been born on her father's Surry County plantation called "Arnols" located in the West corner of Surry county, Virginia North of the Blackwater River. Faith married after 1749 as she appears as a witness in her brother Thomas Anderson's deed in that year. It is stated in the Anderson genealogy of G. J. Anderson (1909), that Faith Anderson married Peleg Ferguson. This marriage is not confirmed as of yet but is very likely as Peleg Ferguson appears co-located in Nottoway Parish with her brother-in-law John until 1796.

F. Bibliography

Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families, by Grant James
Anderson, Whittet &
Shepperson, Richmond, Virginia, 1909.



Notes for PELEG FERGUSON:
Peleg was also called Farguson.
In the book "Genealogy in part, of the Anderson-Owen-Beall families", by Grant James Anderson, Whittet & Shepperson, Richmond, Virginia, 1909; it is stated that Peleg married Faith Anderson and the children below are listed as hers. He apparently remarried after her death. On 10/20/1776 Francis Eppes conveys to Peleg Ferguson and Frances his wife, her dower of her late husband, Charles Williams. In his will he mentions no wife so it is assumed that Frances died before 06/1795. The will of Peleg does not mention all of his children, as the Amelia County marriage records provide us with the name of Delphe Ferguson daughter of Peleg. The 1795 will of Peleg Ferguson names no wife and his beloved daughter Mary Anderson, son William Ferguson, daughter Elizabeth Jackson, daughter Lucy Tankersley, grand-daughter Ann Jackson (daughter of Lucy), grand- daughter Betty Tankersley (daughter of Lucy) and son John Ferguson. He designates John Ferguson and friend Freeman Eppes as executors. Witnesses are Woodlief Thomas, John Mills, Edw Mays, Benjn Bridgeforth. In a codicil he provides for Rebecca Chavis and her daughter Betty Chavis who attended him in his declining years. files in 1796 on page 213,214 of will book 1?
