Mercy! I'm not related or part of the original discussion. Just a genealogy "junkie" who feels everyone's history is important. Someone has filed a "delayed" birth certificate indicating his parents were Jim McKay and Linnie Anderson. The certificate has to be delayed 'cause Texas mandated vital records effective 1903. He's found 1900 TX-Hill-Precinct 1-District 37-Image 16 with an uncle (William N. Anderson) and Aunt (Alice). Next, 1910 TX-Dawson-Precinct 2-District 0036-Image 7 with the family of Wm B. McWhorter. The next documentation is WWI Draft Registration in Arkansas County, AR. This document indicates he was born in Colgate, OK. His parents are the "true" mystery? The maternal Anderson-line stems from George Washington Anderson born about 1847 in Georgia and Susan Jane Batey born 1849 in Tennessee. They wed 15 Aug 1866 in Montgomery County, AR. Find them in 1870 and 1880 Collin County, TX. Unable to identify a daughter-Linnie? The clan's matriarch, Susan, died 9 Nov 1929 in Terry County, TX. Her death certificate online and filed as Bettie Anderson at A review of the document indicates it should have been filed as Mrs. S. J. Beaty Anderson. Sons W. M. Anderson (28 Aug 1868 - 19 Nov 1920) and John Washington Anderson (22 Aug 1879 - 27 May 1954) also have online death certificates. There are several trees documenting the Anderson family's history but you'll need to seperate fact from fiction. One of the better trees has George Washington Anderson fathering children in Texas and South Carolina, simultaneously.(lol) No way!
