Thank you for your fast reply!
I have decided to try the 23andme "dot" com DNA search to see if that cannot help me-at least with the areas I might want to search in. I am pretty sure of my maternal line as well as that of my paternal grandmother. The Anderson line is from my Paternal grandfather- it has been really neat to finally have a break through that I feel is strong and find other 'relatives' on the Anderson side.
I am wondering if maybe I should start searching states along the PA wagon road for Elisha? Or even the military registers? Have you done that yet? You seem to be way ahead of me on this trail. I did a prelim search for any Balloo geneaologies and did not have luck. I will try 'Ballew'.
I have always thought the Anderson line to be predominantly Irish or Scot but since I have 'found' them in western NC, maybe there is some German heritage in there?What do you think?
Thank you for the picture. I found a similar on on the find a grave website. I would love to visit that cemetery one day.
