 notes:  Nathan was a shoemaker by trade, but bought and sold a fair amount
        of land as well. At one point, this family lived in Augusta Co., VA.
        where Nathan, George Anderson Sr. and Jr. served in the Virginia
        Colonial Militia.

         His will was contested, as he was deemed to be senile at the time
        of its writing, and it may never have been settled. His estate was
        listed as 240 acres and 10 slaves.

         In the Madison County Court records of 26 Nov 1802, there was some
        question as to whether Nathan died a natural death, and the coroner
        decided he was murdered. Glasco, a slave of James Collins, was convicted
        of the crime. Several whites were found not guilty in District Court.
