Capt William Henry Anderson Fredericton
Posted: 04/03/2019 - 3:22 pm
I am descended from the Fredericton and Kingsclear Andersons through my great grandmother, Mary Anderson , who married Owen Kingsley Story of Washburn, Maine. Her parents were Robert C M Anderson b 3/1819 in Quebec and Sarah Ann Patterson of Kingsclear. Robert's parents were Captain William H Anderson (b 1787 d 1853) and wife Elizabeth (b 1781 d 1872) who are buried with family at Fredericton Rural Cemetery. 
Another child of William H and Elizabeth is William Henry Anderson, Jr (b 1823 d 1904) of Fredericton. His wife was Lucy Ann Stephenson. One of their daughters, Maria Elizabeth Anderson, became The Countess of Ashburnam through marriage. I have a lot of newsclippings in a scrapbook that my great grandmother kept. This Captain WH Anderson has frustratingly been a brick wall of mine for years!!!! I cannot find him in military rolls even though I have two clippings that said the was of he 104th Regiment. I'm just surprised that, as the grandfather of Countess Ashburnham, there is not more out there on him. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Martha Story-Foisy storyfoisy@gmail.com
