Note: several genealogy websites include trees that claim that this John Anderson (238) was born and christened in 1740 at Tinkling Spring, Augusta County, Virginia, without substantiation or sources. This does not seem supportable. Birthdates for the children of John Anderson (238) begin in 1755, which is inconsistent (or at least highly improbable) for someone born in 1740. Rather, it would seem that there is a second "John Anderson" in the area. See: John Anderson.
Designating hime as "John Anderson of Long Glade" implies he lived in the "Long Glade" in Augusta County. What's the basis for this?
