ANDERSON / DEMPSEY / GREENSBERRY / WILLIAMS
I am searching for descendents of my ggg-grandparents Sandy ANDERSON and Mariah GREENSBERRY. I have found traces of the family in Bolivar, Amite and Washington Counties in Mississippi. I am unsure if the couple ever married. It is my belief they did not. Mariah married Louis Greensberry in Pulaski county Illinois. The only known child of Sandy and Mariah was Peter Anderson. I believe I may have found Sandy in census records in Amite County, Mississippi in 1870 and 1880. I would like to make contact with his descendents for verification. This family consisted of the following members in 1870: Anderson, Sandy age 41 born in LA, Caroline, wife age 27 born in LA, Lacruse age 17 born in LA, Taylor age 11 born in LA, and Ellard or E Loyd age 4 born in LA. Peter Anderson was born Dec 25 1843 in Mississippi. He married Rosetta DEMPSEY. She was born in Arkansas probably in the 1840's or 1850's. They resided in Bolivar County, Mississippi in the 1880 census. A court documents states Peter was from Mound Bayou, MS. In the 1880 Bolivar county census children of Peter and Rosetta were Fred, Preston, Rosetta, Sandy, Mariah, James (female) and Silas. There was another daughter named Peter that I am especially interested in. I have been told she married and remained in Mississippi when the family migrated north to Illinois. Daughter James married James WILLIAMS and had one daughter, It is not know what happened to her after that. I would like to correspond with anyone having information on these ancestors.
