The Grassland Foundation, Inc. gratefully acknowledges the work and effort of Ross Carnick, a volunteer at the Cora (Anderson) DuLaney History Room at Severn Cross Roads, Millersville, Anne Arundel, Maryland, who processed most of the following pictures from their originals in the history room.
Mrs. Ann Regina (Anderson) Tucker Beall (Mrs. Lemon Beall, Sr.), daughter of Absalom III and Louisa Priscilla (Woodward) Anderson, of Davidsonville, Md.
Until recently, this still standing stone home at Marriottsville, Howard County, Maryland, was erroneously thought to have been the home of Thomas Anderson and his son, the older Isaac Cord (I) Anderson; instead, their home was another still standing stone home, somewhat similar in construction and age, that is located across Driver Road in the same general vicinity.
Albert George Anderson he was a son of Absalom (V) Anderson and Louise (Walters) Anderson, his first wife, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. He was a Captain in the Canadian Army Overseas during World War II, and he was married to Helen McIntire.
>Absalom Anderson V, and his sister, Amanda (Anderson) McDonald: These are the two children of Absalom Anderson, IV, and Anna (Pollock) Anderson in Saskatchewan, Canada. Amanda’s husband, the late J. C. McDonald, shown in one of the photographs, owned and operated a foundry-type business at Prince Albert and, at one time, served as President of the Canadian Manufacturers Association. Several of the McDonald sons returned to the foundry business of their father following their World War II service. In one of these photographs, which was taken on the 11 June 1913 wedding date of Amanda and her husband, Amanda’s father, Absalom (IV), the father of the bride, is shown with the bride and groom (possibly the last picture taken of him prior to his enlistment in the Canadian Army). The following photograph shows the father in his Canadian Army uniform. Amanda McDonald visited Anne Arundel County and her relatives there several times during her lifetime, staying in 1912 with her uncle by marriage, the late Judge Lemon Beall, Sr., and attending, with him when he was a Delegate, the Democratic Party National Convention, in Baltimore, when New Jersey Governor Woodrow Wilson received the nomination for President of the United States. Amanda was so impressed with Governor Wilson that, after she returned home and then married in 1913, she named her first born and oldest son, Woodrow McDonald, after the President of the United States. Absalom Anderson (IV) son of Absalom III and Louisa Priscilla (Woodward) Anderson and one of the two brothers who migrated West after the Civil War, circa 1885 and possibly soon after their Mother had died (1882). Their “story” is not summarized in the DE. Briefly, they departed from the Davidsonville and/or Severn Cross Roads communities, in which they were then residing (one of them, at least, might have been residing temporarily with the family of William Henry Anderson, Sr., when they departed, stayed briefly with the family of their Aunt “Tillie” (Matilda) (Anderson) Gaither in Frederick, MD, and then they moved on West, arriving at Ottawa, Kansas, where they stayed (and worked) with the farm family of at least one of their (Disney) cousins (possibly Samuel Richard Disney, or one of his brothers, before moving on to South Dakota (during which time they may have been employed with one of the railroads, doing land survey-type work). In South Dakota, the younger brother, James Williams Anderson, met and married Nellie Brown, and settled at Vermillion, South Dakota, where he became a farmer and a justice of the peace, and had one son, James Walter (“Walter”) Anderson, who became the Ford automobile dealer for many years at Yankton, S.D., and two daughters. In the meantime, his older brother, Absalom (IV) Anderson, moved on North after he had met and married Anna Pollock, to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, Canada, where that couple raised a family and lived until the beginning of World War I, when Absalom (IV) Anderson, enlisted as a medical orderly with the Canadian Overseas Forces, was shipped overseas to England, where he soon contracted and died from pneumonia, when he was approximately 55 years of age. To this day he is interred in the Military Cemetery at Shorncliffe, England, which was the location of the hospital to which he had been assigned just a few days before his death. He left surviving him, his widow and one daughter, Amanda McDonald, and one son Albert, or Absalom (V) Anderson. Each of these two children married and left descendants still in Saskatchewan, although a few have migrated back to the States. One of the referenced photographs is of Absalom (IV) Anderson taken at Ottawa, Kansas, when he was still a young man.

Isaac Cord (II) Anderson, Sr,, son of Absalom (III) and Louisa Priscilla (Woodward) Anderson, of (finally) Crownsville, Anne Arundel County. DE: 106-107. His wife, Lucy Caroline (Gaither) Anderson, who predeceased her husband, is definitely interred in an unmarked grave site, within the Richard (Bud) Anderson Family grave lots at St. Stephens Episcopal Church graveyard at Crownsville, Anne Arundel County, Maryland.
James Tucker Anderson, oldest son and child of Isaac Cord (II) Anderson, Sr., and Lucy Caroline (Gaither) Anderson, was the young, married electrical worker employed as such at Annapolis when Dahlgren Hall, at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, was being electrified circa 1910, when he fell to his death from a scaffold, leaving surviving him his then young widow and their two quite young children, a son, Harry Welch Anderson, and a daughter. The family was practically destitute and depended upon financial and other assistance from the widow’s rather well known Basil family in Annapolis plus help from some of Tucker’s Anderson brothers. It was quite a struggle. Harry Welch Anderson grew up on the streets of Annapolis, became a licensed plumber, and married Marie Merkel, of Bowie, where Harry and Marie later lived, raised a son, and grew award winning dahlias on Merkel Farms near the Racetrack at Bowie.
Robert Aubrey Anderson (nee Aubrey) in 1913. He was a son of James Curtis Anderson and a stone mason by trade. His mother, Mary Jane (Wagner) Anderson and young sister died in 1907. James Curtis had to find foster homes for his small children. Robert tracked down all his siblings, keeping close relationships with all of them, and they all grew old together within a few miles of each other. He held no animosity towards his father, naming a son after him.
Joan Isabelle Anderson, the nurse daughter of Absalom (V) Anderson and his first wife, Louise Walter Anderson, who lived her entire life at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, except when she was in school or on duty as a Canadian Army Nurse Overseas during World War II. Her military career during that conflict is summarized on page 143 of Mrs. DuLaney’s Anderson genealogy as well as in an article, with her picture, in one of the printed newsletters put out about the year 2000 by The Grassland Foundation, Inc. Joan died during 2012.

Two photographs of Michael Anderson, son of James Walter Anderson at Yankton, SD, and sister of Carol Anderson Bishop. Michael and Carol both lived at Long Beach, California, and both are now deceased.
This photograph is identified on the back as the second Mrs. Edward E. Anderson and is believed to be of Caroline (Spears) Anderson, who was the (first and only?) wife of Edward E. Anderson (II) (son of Thomas and Eleanor (Warfield) Anderson, and, therefore, part of the William (III) Anderson line. In any case, this is the first and only, so far, Anderson photograph, in this particular collection, to be thus connected to the William III Anderson family; there are other groups of photographs extant showing these and other branches . And it is not clear that the lady shown is really Caroline (Spears) Anderson, because there were more than one Edward Edwards Andersons junior to Edward Edwards Anderson, Sr., in the total family. This lady might have been the second wife of any of such juniors. For example, she might have been Mary (Evans) Anderson, second wife of Edward Edwards Anderson (son of William and Sarah Jane (Waters) Anderson. See page 35 of Mrs. DuLaney’s Anderson genealogy
The cemetery headstone and family marker tombstone, respectively, at the Cemetery of St. Stephens Episcopal Church at Crownsville, Maryland, where two generations, at least, of the family of Richard (“Bud”) Anderson (son of Samuel Anderson, Sr., and Elizabeth (Anderson) Anderson, are interred, along with a few other family members, including Lucy Caroline (Gaither) Anderson (Mrs. Isaac Cord Anderson, II).

Dr. Anderson was a son of Samuel Bealmear Anderson and Elizabeth (Hall) Anderson, his wife (of the “James Anderson” line), although Mrs. Elizabeth (Hall) Anderson was a daughter of Ann Duckett (Anderson) Hall, of the Absolom (I) Anderson family, and of Thomas Hall, her husband). Dr. Anderson, therefore, was (more than) doubly related to his Anderson hosts at Woodwardville. DE: 6,9,34,37,39,40,42,43,48,74,80.

The Andersons of Woodwardville standing in front of the front porch of the Providence Plantation Home circa 1890 to 1900, soon before the death of Hannah (Moler) Anderson (Mrs. William Thomas Anderson, Sr.), Mrs. DuLaney’s grandmother. This photograph is on the front cover of Mrs. DuLaney’s In Dogwood Blossoming Times…., and those shown were her parents and her aunts and uncles in her immediate family. They have all been identified by name in that booklet, as corrected in a subsequent annual newsletter of The Grassland Foundation, Inc. The home and most of the farm were sold following the death of Mrs. William Thomas Anderson, Sr., soon after 1900. The home survived in other ownership(s) until the post-World War II period.
Dr. Arnold? Unless “picked up” in In Dogwood Blossoming Times…., he has not been identified
Rosa Hall Baldwin (Mrs. Rignal Woodward Baldwin, Sr.) , a lineal descendant of Ann Duckett (Anderson) Hall, of the Absolom (I) Anderson family. She married Attorney Rignal Woodward Baldwin, Sr. (son of William Henry, Sr., and Jane Maria (Woodward) Baldwin, of Bunker Hill Farm at Severn Cross Roads, Millersville, Maryland, and they were the parents of something like six children and have many descendants living today. For some years their namesake son, Rignal Woodward Baldwin, Jr., also an attorney, and his family, resided in the large white Superintendent’s home “on the hill” at the Savage Mill, still standing and in use, because that branch of the Baldwins owned and operated the Savage Mill prior to World War II, and Mr. Rignal W. Baldwin, Jr., was then the Mill Superintendent
Richard Baldwin, Jr., of, originally and finally, Spring Hill Farm (the ancestral real estate of his Woodward ancestors), on Bacon Ridge Road at Waterbury, was one of the set of the twin sons of Richard Baldwin, Sr., and Sophronia Jane (Furlong) Baldwin, who had purchased, from the Woodwards, in the late 1850s, and lived at, the Woodward ancestral real estate, which they called Spring Hill Farm. Richard, Jr., became a civil engineer and also graduated from Lehigh University. In his later years, Richard Baldwin, Jr., and his wife, lived right on Spring Hill Farm.
Another image of Rosa Hall Baldwin
Lemon Beall, Sr., who was the husband of Ann Regina (Anderson) Tucker Beall. He was Chief Judge of Anne Arundel County’s Orphans Court in the 1920s. DE:82,84.
Samuel Woodward Anderson’s namesake nephew, Samuel Woodward (II) Anderson, who was also a bachelor, way too young to have served in the Civil War, North or South; instead, soon after his father, William Henry (Sr.) Anderson, died, his oldest son, this particular Samuel, had to, and did, go to work for the Rawlings family living and owning “Warfields Plains” across the street (road) from where his mother and siblings then were, and Uncle Sam stayed with the Rawlingses for years as their “major domo”, “live in” valet, and general “handy man” until he (Sam) was almost the last living person in that old original Warfield family home. Much appears about Samuel Woodward (II) Anderson and his connections with the Warfield and Woodward descended Rawlings family in several of our already circulated booklets. This particular photograph was taken when he had left Warfields Plains, and soon before he died in 1934. He was named after his Civil War Confederate bachelor uncle who did not survive the War.
“Not identified at this time.”
Two images of Samuel Bealmear. He was probably the Samuel Bealmear who was a son of Francis Bealmear, Jr., and Elizabeth (Anderson) Bealmear and who married Ann Janetta (Brewer), daughter of John Brewer. The “bulk” of the local Bealmear real estate was at today’s Meyer Station
A group photograph depicting Maggie Brady, Johns Hopkins Anderson, Rosa E. Hall Baldwin, and Mary Virginia (“Jennie”) Anderson (Mrs, Daniel Dodge (I) Woodward). Johns Hopkins Anderson and Jennie Anderson were two of the children of Samuel Bealmear Anderson and Elizabeth (Hall) Anderson, who were “centered” at Glenn Dale in Prince George’s County when Samuel was not store keeping at places like Upper and Lower Marlboro and Chevy Chase, Maryland. “Jennie” Anderson married, as his first wife, Daniel Dodge (I) Anderson. DE: 73-74.
Brooksbys Point, the old Marriott-Sewell homestead located off of Old General’s Highway a little “behind” Old Dorr’s Corner off of Md. Rte. No. 178 near Severn Cross Roads, where the family (widow and children) of William Henry Anderson, Sr., lived during the period circa 1900 to circa 1920, give or take, after they relocated there when the Old Woodward Home (in which they had been living) at Severn Cross Roads burned circa 1900.
A series of basically unidentified images of persons having the last name of “Butterworth” plus one of a Gertie Miller Bullen. It is believed that most of these are somehow connected to female line relatives of Mrs. DuLaney, and that some of them may be identified by name in her In Dogwood Blossoming Times…., which, unfortunately, does not contain a name index.
The Reverend Isaac White Canter, pastor, M. E. Church South, who had married, as his second wife, Miss Margaret Jane Hall, a daughter of Absalom Hall and Julia Beard Hall, of Halls Grove Farm on Davidsonville Road at Rutland, Gambrills, Maryland, while the Reverend Canter was the pastor of the nearby St. Paul’s Church (M.E., South) on Davidsonville Road at today’s Crofton. (The photograph is marked: ”25 Oct. 1895.) The Reverend Canter also served churches in Baltimore City and elsewhere. This Canter couple left a rather distinguished line of progeny, primarily in Virginia (to which they ultimately relocated). They had three sons and one daughter, and each of them had a distinguished career: one became Dean and Professor of Chemistry at Randolph-Macon (Mens) College at Ashland, Virginia, and he served as national President of Phi Beta Kappa (the academic honorary fraternity), another became an honored minister in the Methodist Church, and a Doctor of Divinity, and the third son became a medical doctor practicing for many years in Harrisonburg, Virginia. They were and are all descendants of Ann Duckett (Anderson) Hall and Thomas Hall, her husband, of Glen Dale, Maryland (part of the Absolom (I) Anderson “line” in the family).
Jennie Hall Canter. Unless this is a photograph of Mrs. Isaac White Canter herself, this may be in actuality Jennie Collinson, the granddaughter of Reverend and Mrs. Canter who became the “administrative” “nurse in charge” for many years at the Old Annapolis and Anne Arundel General Hospital. If so, she was a daughter of Julia Comfort Hall, the daughter who married Benjamin Collinson, Sr., of South River (the Canters only daughter).

William Thomas Disney. DE: 87. Relocated to, and farmed near, Ottawa, Kansas, along with some of his brothers, and they were probably the Disneys with whom the two Anderson brothers, Absalom (IV) and James Williams, resided and “worked for” on their way “West” in the 1880s-1890s.
A Group Photograph Taken a Number of Years Ago at Frederick, MD, showing Doris (Hemp) Gaither, her husband, Francis (“Frank”) Gaither, Jr., Ruth (Gittinger) Gaither (Mrs. Francis Gaither, Sr.), and her husband, Francis Gaither, Sr. The two “Frank Gaithers” were the son and grandson, respectively, of Matilda (“Tillie”) (Anderson) Gaither (Mrs. Samuel R. Gaither). Matilda Anderson and one of her brothers, Isaac Cord (II) Anderson, Sr., were siblings who met and married siblings at and near Marriottsville, Howard County, Maryland, whom they had met as a consequence of visiting the Marriottsville home and farm of the senior Isaac Cord (I) Anderson, the wealthy bachelor who lived and resided at Marriottsville, to which he brought his young cousin, the younger namesake, Isaac Cord (II) Anderson, Sr., to help raise him. DE:82, 106-107,108.
Mary Downs – sounds Odenton, but not sure who she was. Unless this is of Mark Downs, of Millersville
Mike Duff – Not sure which Duff he is (was), but Susan (Anderson) Duff, of Concord, Ohio, was a daughter of William Thomas and Hannah (Moler) Anderson, of Providence Plantation at Woodwardville, and, by virtue of her Duff marriage, there commenced a line of Duff/Anderson descendants in Ohio. This could be of any of them.
Moler A. Duff, Sr. Son of the couple last above mentioned. He and his family lived at Galloway, Ohio, and he was a locomotive engineer on the “Big Four” Railroad and was a prominent Scottish Rite Mason. He married and had a family.

Matt Garrott – In Mrs. DuLaney’s Anderson genealogy, he is identified as a son of Allen Franklin and Virginia (Henkel) Garrott who married in 1907.
Nelia Moler Garnett (?) Not identified at this time, but undoubtedly part of the Moler family of West Virginia and/or Ohio who were “in laws” of the Providence Plantation Andersons at Woodwardville. There was/were one or more Cornelia Moler(s), and it is possible that “Nelia” might be “short” for “Cornelia”.
Frank Garrott – In Mrs. DuLaney’s Anderson genealogy, he is identified as a son of Allen Franklin and Virginia (Henkel) Garrott who married in 1916 and was living in Dallas, Texas. Allen Franklin Garrott was a son of Bartholemew and Mary Priscilla (Anderson) Garrott, of Frederick County, Maryland, and these Garrotts, through Mary Priscilla (Anderson) Garrott, were descendants of Robert Anderson, a son of Absolom (I) Anderson and Ann (Wheeler) Anderson, his second wife, of Providence Plantation at Woodwardville, Maryland
Maxine McDonald Garvie, of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, daughter of Amanda (Anderson) McDonald and J. C. McDonald, of Prince Albert, Saskatatchewan, Canada, is now retired from a career in journalism

“Lower photos: Elizabeth Eleanor (Waring) Jones (Mrs. Joseph Fry Jones Sr.) (1826 – 1901)
“Both are interred in the cemetery of Baldwin Memorial Church. Mrs. Jones was a grand niece of Thomas Williams Turner, of Warfields Plains, the donor of the 3/4 acre original ‘Church lot’ where today stands the 1896 stone Baldwin Memorial Church and also the grantor of the land which became Bunker Hill farm of the family of William Henry Baldwin, Sr. Joseph Fry Jones Sr. was a brother of William Jones, the carpenter – builder of Charles W. Baldwin Hall (1861), whose wife was Eveline Waring (a sister of Mrs. Joseph Fry Jones), and Mr. and Mrs. William Jones are likewise interred in Baldwin Memorial Church cemetery. Mrs. Elizabeth Eleanor (Waring) Jones was thus a half-niece of the generation of Woodward siblings which included Jane Maria Woodward (Mrs. William Henry Baldwin, Sr.), William Woodward of Baltimore, Henry Williams Woodward, Rignal Duckett Woodward, and others.
“These two photo images were contributed by a great great granddaughter of the Joseph Fry Jones Sr., Cynthia Waring Shockley of North Carolina.
The following initial group of twenty-one (21) photographs are images taken at, or
of persons immediately associated with, the 19th century Anderson and Bowie farm
or plantation and home at Annapolis Junction, Anne Arundel County, Maryland,
known as Grassland, and described more generally in the above referenced “DE”
(which is available to be examined, read, and/or printed, in whole and/or in part(s),
at the “Publications” page of the web site: The Grassland Foundation, Inc., along
with Cora Anderson DuLaney’s (1948) Andersons from the Great Fork of the
Patuxent, which is also available for reading, copying, and printing at the same
Grassland Foundation “web site” “Publications” page; both publications containing
name indices at the rear or end of each). We are indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Harry
Anderson Bowie, Sr., of, today, Baltimore, Maryland (Harry being a double great
grandson of William Anderson, of Grassland, the builder of the home known as
Grassland), for making these twenty-one (21) photographs available for reproduction
here of the following JPEG images thereof.
Captain John Bowie, Jr. (Grandson of William Anderson, of Grassland, the builder),
United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, Retired, standing in front of the Grassland
home a few years before his death in 1986
Anne Arundel County, Maryland Sheriff John Bowie (father of Captain Bowie, above),
standing near the then front porch of the Grassland home at a time and on a date which
was after the completion of changes and additions which had been made to the home
toward the end of World War II.
William Anderson of Grassland, the storekeeper at Harpers Ferry, (West) Virginia, and
other places, who returned to the areas of his birth in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s
Counties, Maryland, and, about 1852, purchased the farm and erected thereon the home
known as Grassland.
Sarah Hall Anderson, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Perkins) Hall, who married, as
his second wife, William Anderson of Grassland. Sarah was the sister of his first wife,
Susannah Hall Beck (who had earlier died while they were living at Harpers Ferry, (West)
Virginia. By his first wife, William of Grassland had one son, William Henry Harrison
Anderson, a Baltimore, Maryland, attorney; and, by his second wife, he had one daughter,
Susannah Anderson Bowie, of Grassland (“Cousin Susie”), who married Colonel T.
John Bowie, one time Provost Marshal for Northern Prince George’s County, Maryland,
during the War for Southern Independence. (Unfortunately, we do not (yet) have a picture
or portrait of Colonel T. John Bowie (who died when he was relatively young) to exhibit.
There once was a painting of him, possibly at Grassland, which was given by the Bowies
to the late Claggett Bowie, who was a son of Captain John Bowie, Jr’s uncle, the late Dr.
Susannah Anderson Bowie (Mrs. T. John Bowie) of Grassland (“Cousin Susie” to the
extended Anderson family).
John Bowie “of Bladensburg” (probably the father of Colonel T. John Bowie). It is known
that the progenitors of Colonel T. John Bowie were natives of Bladensburg, Prince
George’s County, Maryland.
Dr. William Bowie, uncle of Captain John Bowie, Jr., and brother of Sheriff John Bowie.
Dr. William Bowie was a distinguished graduate of both the Anne Arundel Academy at
Millersville, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and of Lehigh University in Pennsylvania. For
more about his distinguished career, see references for and about him in “DE” above
Sheriff John Bowie of Grassland. Father of Captain John Bowie, Jr., and others. For

Edward Hall Bowie, uncle of Captain John Bowie, Jr., and brother of Sheriff John Bowie.
His career was spent with the United States Weather Service. See references for and

Bowie children on fence at Grassland. It is believed that most, if not all, of the following
remaining of twenty-two (22) photographs were taken during the decades of the 1920s
and/or1930s at Grassland or even earlier, in some cases.

Mrs. Ethel (Cooke) Bowie (Mrs. John Bowie) of Grassland. She was the Sheriff’s wife
and the mother of his children. Here she is depicted with two of her infant children,
including her daughter, Susannah Frances (who later became Mrs. C. Elliott Baldwin).
Mrs. Bowie was tragically killed during World War II at Laurel, Maryland, when, as a
pedestrian walking, she was struck and killed by a motor vehicle.
Helen, John (Jr.), Margaret, and Ethel Bowie at Grassland “bringing in the hay”; it is
believed that “Helen” and “Margaret” may have been children of one or more of the two
married uncles of John Bowie, Jr., who may have been visiting with/staying at Grassland
when they were young, possibly during a summer season.

Two of the next three images depict the originally marked, and now confirmed, (“monumented”) grave
sites at Ward’s Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery situated at the corner of
the intersection of Liberty Road and Wards Chapel Road, 11023 Liberty Road Road, Randallstown, in
Baltimore County, Maryland 21133, of Anne Arundel County Confederate Army Civil War
Veteran Richard Thomas Anderson and of his infant daughter, Emmeline Louise
Anderson (who was named “after” her two grandmothers, Emmeline Banes and
Louisa Priscilla (Woodward) Anderson (Mrs. Absalom (III) Anderson), respectively).
At this writing, after their two individual tombstones had remained undisturbed in
place at the aforementioned cemetery since circa 1896, and after initially being unable to relocate these two grave sites in more recent years, we are now happy to be able to report that both are,
and have been, “in place” where they have always been since they were first installed in the 1890’s
time period, without any vandalism to date (2016).
For more about Richard Thomas Anderson’s Civil War record, assignments,
postings, and war injuries, see the appropriate locations in “DE” above referred to.
One or more photographs of him and of his brother, Samuel Woodward (I) Anderson,
who fought with him at, among other places, Gettysburg (where Samuel was
mortally wounded) appear(s) in several bound volume histories pertaining to
Maryland Confederate Army Civil War engagements and battles, and it is hoped that
we will soon be able to include some of such photographs of the two Anderson
brothers on this “web” site. These two Anderson brothers were both members of
the same unit, Company “C” (the so called “Duvall Company”), from Anne Arundel
and Prince George’s Counties, Maryland, of the First (later the Second) Maryland
(Confederate) Infantry Battalion, part of the so called “Maryland Confederate Line”.
The late John (“Jack”) Robinson, of Severna Park, Maryland, accompanied by others,
including his late first cousin from California, the Reverend Dr. Ross Banes Anderson, Jr.,
of California, is shown inspecting and reading the monumented grave stone at the Wards
Chapel United Methodist Church near Randallstown in Baltimore County, Maryland, of
the Reverend Dr. Ross Banes Anderson, Jr.’s late grandfather, Civil War Veteran
Richard Thomas Anderson, on an occasion in fairly recent years. (In fact, the partial image of the
Reverend Dr. Ross Banes Anderson, Jr., appears, standing to the left of, and slightly in
front of, the full image of his first cousin, Jack Robinson, squatting, in this particular
photograph. One can distinguish Dr. Anderson’s hat or cap and his eye glasses in the
extreme left hand side of this photo image.)
An image of the still existing and still standing main, or principal, Banes family cemetery
marker located in the Cemetery of Wards Chapel United Methodist Church, located as
above. Lafayette Banes, named on this particular stone, was either the father or
grandfather of Anna Margaret Banes Anderson (Mrs. Richard Thomas Anderson), the
wife and surviving widow of Anne Arundel County, Maryland, Confederate Civil War soldier
Richard Thomas Anderson, whom Mrs. Anderson had interred in this cemetery close to
some of her Banes family relatives after his death about 1896, and she was the one who
paid to have the two cemetery markers there erected for her late husband and daughter,
A “close up” image photograph of the grave marker monument for Richard Thomas
Anderson’s infant daughter, Emmeline Louise Anderson, who preceded in death her
father, Richard Thomas Anderson (by a year or two), and which grave monument was
one of the two such grave monuments which, in recent years, were erroneously thought to have been disturbed and
removed, without permission, from the cemetery of the Wards Chapel United Methodist
Church near Randallstown in Baltimore County, Maryland, but which now, thankfully, have been ascertained not to have been disturbed or removed (2016)
Photo contributed by Ms. Vicki DaBronzo with our gratitude. Charles W. Anderson (of Robert Anderson, of Fredrick County, Maryland “line was born and raised in Trenton NJ, when he was 17 he joined the Navy. He was a Navy veteran
of the Korean War (1952-1956) serving aboard the USS Hale DD642 for
26 months as a 3/c PO. He enjoyed attending reunions with former shipmates
of the Hale in different parts of the country and trips to Myrtle Beach, S.C. and Cape
May, NJ. He loved playing games on the computer. Photo was taken in 1995
The following images of the family of Dr. Charles E. Waters, Sr., late Baltimore, Maryland, dentist, and his wife, the late Mary Turner Waters, have been donated to this site by their grandson, Jacob (“Jack”) Waters. of Cotton, Minnesota (near Duluth). Dr. Waters was born at Woodwardville, Odenton, Anne Arundel County, Maryland, a son of Ella (Anderson) Waters and her husband, Edward (Ned) Waters, who are interred in Woodwardville’s Trinity Church Cemetery (see pages 134-135 of Cora (Anderson) DuLaney’s (1948) Andersons from the Great Fork of the Patuxent for more details.):

The Grassland Foundation, Inc., is indebted to, and thanks very much, Scott Anderson,chef/owner of Elements and Mistral Restaurant, located at: 66 Witherspoon Street, Princeton,New Jersey 08540 (son of our Foundation “web master”, T. Michael Anderson, of Boca Raton,
Florida, for putting our Foundation in touch with Mr. Dave Puzey, a great grandson of Washington, D. C.’s late commission merchant and cousin (to us all), William Samuel Anderson,who was born at Bowie, Maryland, 68 years before he died in the District of Columbia on
November 17, 1904, where he is interred in the family plot beneath a large obelisk in the Old Congressional Cemetery with other members of his family. He was a son of William and Sarah Jane (Waters) Anderson and a grandson of Edward Edwards (I) Anderson and Susan (Donaldson) Chaney Anderson (all of the William (III) Anderson line in our family).
At a young age, William Samuel Anderson moved from Bowie, in Prince
George’s County, Maryland, to the fairly new District of Columbia, where he had trained to become a carpenter, and became a well known and early U. S. Mail pony express rider in the Far West. where he encountered many challenges and dangers.Later, returning to Washington, D. C., near the outset of the Civil War, William S.Anderson joined the Union Army in Washington. On July 5, 1869, he married Eda Leesnitzer. Thereafter, until his death in 1904, he was a commission merchant in the District of Columbia doing business under the trade name of Edward E. Anderson &
Brother. See pages 37 and 38 of Cora Anderson DuLaney’s Andersons from the Great Fork of the Patuxent (1948) and pages 7 and 8 in the Annual Letter Report of The Grassland Foundation, Inc., dated December 5, 2007.
Further details of and about William Samuel Anderson’s life and career, and about some of his descendants, appear among the following identified photographs and other memorabilia recently donated by one of his great grandsons, Mr. Dave Puzey, whom The Grassland foundation is very grateful.
