Catherine (1804 - 1877)

Anderson Group Sheet Index

. . .

Catherine Anderson is the only proven ancestor with the Anderson last name.  She lived in Port Murray, Mansfield Township, Warren County with her husband David Beam. 

Joseph Anderson and Elizabeth Stephenson are the known founders of Andersonville in Mansfield Township, Warren County, NJ.  I'm trying to find proof that Catherine is a descendant of these Andersons.  On her web page are her possible siblings  and are the known children of Joseph and Elizabeth Anderson. (James married daughter of Joseph Carter, Susan born 1806, Jane Dusenberry and Elizabeth). Another note, on April 4, 2003 I found a death record of a daughter Rachel Creveling whose parents are Joseph and Elizabeth Anderson.

Mansfield Woodhouse Cemetery in Washington, Warren County, NJ has tombstones of Joseph Anderson and Elizabeth.  I'm sure they are not the founders.  There is also a James Anderson (a brother?) and his wife buried in next to them. James has a son buried at the Mansfield Baptist Church Cemetery, the same cemetery that Catherine (Anderson) Beam is buried. According to the articles I read about the founding members of Andersonville, James was there only son.
