Joshua Anderson was born about 1792 in probably Eastern Tennessee the son of Thomas and Mary (probably Lay) Anderson. He married Nancy Whitehead before 1820 in probably the same county, Claiborne. He purchased land in 1820 from the notorious James Glascow by his attorney, John Adair. From there I am stuck as I find no further record of him or Nancy.
Any info on Joshua Anderson and/or Nancy certainly appreciated.
