Anderson Smith, Sr.
(Son of John Smith, B. 1697/98; Hopewell Twnshp., Hunterdon, NJ - not proven) and Rebeckah Catherine Anderson, B. 6 JAN 1699; Dutch Kills, Queens, NY. Anderson Smith was born about 1746, during the reign of George III, (King of England 1727-1760) in Hopewell township, Hunterdon County, Colony of West Jersey (now Mercer county, New Jersey).
July 10, 1766 he bought 126 acres of land in Rowan County, North Carolina from Vinson Williams. Witnesses were James Smith and John Dunn.
February 4, 1779 he sold these 126 acres to Thomas Monroe, said land lay on south side of Yadkin River in Rowan County. Witnesses: Gabriel Enochs and William Halbrook.
Jun 18, 1779 he acted as attorney for a David Hayes of West Calm, Chester, Pennsylvania (this would be in Rowan county). [McCubben Collection]
1782, he received a land grant from North Carolina for 250 acres in Sullivan County, Tennessee, Land Grant dated October 23, 1782.
Before 1800, Pulaski County, Kentucky was being settled an Anderson Smith first appears in the Pulaski County Tax lists in 1800 and is listed as having in his household one male between the ages of 16 & 21. He shows no land holdings until 1804 (200 acres), no land in 1805, and 100 acres in 1806. He purchased 200 acres from James Smith (assignee of Wm. Dotson) in 1807 but the tax records show him only holding a total of 200 acres. In 1809 he sold all his land to Thomas Burke and moved to Bedford County, Tennessee. In 1812 in the Bedford County, Tennessee tax list, Anderson Smith, Sr. appears. Also his two sons, Anderson, Jr, and Vinson Smith. In 1820, Anderson, Sr. and his wife might have been living with Robert and Jemima Ping. That census - in Pulaski Co. - lists an older couple. Of course this could also have been Robert's parents since their whereabouts are not known for that year. Shared with brother Samuel, the 640 acres of his father's estate.
