See "The Black papers", TMG 21:1:13-17, which says he settled in Cherryfield 1786, was age 52 in 1798 and had 7 in his family. He may have been born in Ireland if Lucretia & Fanny were his daughters [their census records].

John Anderson sold 10 acres of land at Cherryfield ME on 7 May 1806 to Richard Barefield [WCD 5:88].

The children listed are speculative.

3    SAMUEL 2 ANDERSON [# 5938] s/o JOHN 1 ANDERSON and MOLLY 4 COLSON was born at Cherryfield ME abt 1793; died at Cherryfield ME Mar 1850 [EPRF]; married (1) at ? bef 1817 Dorcas 5 Nash, d/o Reuben Nash and Ruth Cole; married (2) at ? 1833 [marriage int filed at Harrington ME 4 Sep 1833] Hannah Davis [HarrMR] d/o ? and ?;

Sasmel was raised in Cherryfield ME and lived at Harrington ME 1820 - 1840.

It seems odd that Samuel would name his 2 children by Hannah the same as his 2 living children by Dorcas.

The 1840 census (after Samuel married Hannah) can't yet be reconciled with this family.

Samuel's 6 children by Dorcas are listed in the Harrington ME birth records.

A1    JAMES E ANDERSON [# 7854] s/o? was born at Harrington ME 25 Dec 1855 [gs]; died at Harrington ME 24 Feb 1927 [HarrDR; gs]; married at Harrington ME 18 Feb 1880 [marriage int filed at Harrington ME 1 Feb 1880] Antoinette C 5 Nichols, d/o John Nichols and Ruth K Kilton; James is buried at Forest Hill Cemetery, Harrington ME

James was living with Hannah, widow of Samuel Anderson, in the 1860, 1870 and 1880 census. The Harrington ME death records say that he was the s/o John Anderson, b Harrington, blacksmith, and Hannah Davis, b Steuben. James could not have been the s/o Samuel Anderson and Hannah Davis as Samuel died in 1850. His widow, Hannah, remarried, but not until 1860. No record can be found of a marriage between Hannah Davis & John Anderson. It appears that James's mother may have been Hannah Davis but his father remains a question.

James was a fish peddlar in 1900 and a ship carpenter in 1905 at Harrington ME.
