I am one of several persons around the U.S. that are researching these surnames. We have been able to connect almost every family group in the country with either of these surnanes to John ANCHORS who arrived in Anne Arundle County, Maryland about 1665. The "Family Tree" now has over 2500 persons identified.
Please contact me. We are willing to share information and anxious to help identify additional people with connections to our family tree.
