- JAMES STEVENSON AND THOMAS LOVE ANDERSON are descended from that sturdy people known as the Scotch-Irish race. Their ancestry lived originally in Scotland, and were of the Covenanter faith. To escape religious persecution, they fled their native land and settled in County Donegal, Ireland. Here the great-grand parents of James S. and Thomas L. lived and reared a large family: George, Matthew, Benjamin and a daughter--Mrs. Scott, her son John, a merchant, settled in Baltimore, Md.--being among the number. Benjamin, their grandfather, was married in 1780, to Nancy Love, of County Tyrone, Ireland, where they became the parents of six children: William, Thomas, Benjamin, George, Jane and Nancy, none of whom are now living. Grandfather Anderson followed the blacksmith trade in Ireland, and in 1792 he sailed with his family to America, accompanied by his brother Matthew and family. After a long and tedious voyage of over thirteen weeks, during which time little George was seized with a fatal disease and his body buried in an ocean grave, the family landed in New York. They proceeded to Washington county, Penn., and settled on Brush run, in what is now Hopewell township, the neighborhood being then very thinly settled. Mr. Anderson continued to work at his trade while the sons attended to the duties of the home farm. Here he died in 1827, his wife having been called home a short time before. Of their children, William settled in Harrison county, Ohio, where he married Melila Thompson; Thomas was a river trader, and died in New Orleans; Jane became the wife of Holstin Bartleson, of Hopewell township; Nancy married John Daugherty.
