Lawrence Anderson II, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Lawrence Anderson II might describe his life as follows.

An old Anderson family history identified my father, Lawrence Anderson, who married Mary Puckett as an Anderson patriarch. Three sons are said to be buried in Maryland: William Anderson (c.1689), James Anderson (c.1699), and Thomas Anderson (c.1692). The fourth and youngest, I was born about 1703 and lived in Drysdale Parish, Caroline County, near Essex County.
This history went on to name my 8 children, only 1 of whom remained in Caroline. Three moved to Kentucky, 1 to South Carolina, and 2 to neighboring Spotsylvania County. Although Joanna who married Richard Blanton also went to Spotsylvania, they were later in Cumberland County.
It is said I died in Caroline County in 1780 in my 70s.
One of my great-granddaughters married Peter Francisco, the “Hercules of the Revolution,” who could hold a grown man out by one hand. 

The brief depiction of the children of Lawrence and Mary Anderson was rendered as follows. “1. James - m. Miss Troy, Spotsylvania Co., Va., 2. Betsy m. Roberts - Ky., 3. Sarah m. Sutton - Ky., 4. David lived in Spotsylvania Co., Va., 5. Hannah m. Blanton, 6. George moved to Ky. near Georgetown, 7. John lived in Caroline Co., Va., 8. William m. ? from Va. to S.C.—Sabine River.”
Lawrence is said to have married Mary Kirkpatrick in Essex County in 1725, but we have yet to see what evidence supports this. No Kirkpatrick paid quit rents in 1704, ever appeared as a headright, or received a land grant until 1771.
