Notes by

Scott Anthony 12 Mar 2002

This chapter was copied from scanned images of photocopies of a typewritten manuscript, presumably the original manuscript published in 1970-1971 by Nancy Vashti Anthony Jacob.
I have edited the manuscript in the following ways:

  1. Changed state abbreviations to their modern 2-character captitalized standards with no periods following them.

  2. Corrected the few instances of confusing wording or grammar

  3. Occasional missing words were added in parentheses.

  4. Changed month names to standard 3-character abbreviations without periods following them. This makes the manuscript considerably easier to read.

Rev. Joseph Anthony, a Baptist minister. Will recorded in Henry Co. VA, was probably a grandson of Mark Anthony and Isabella Hart. His parents may have been Thomas Antony and Elizabeth Martin.

1755, 1756, and 1757, Luke Anthony paid in tobaccor for keeping Mary Kenny.

Date of registration of 1st child: "Anthony, Mary & John Perkins, 13 Oct 1765."


JAMES ANTHONY of St. Paul's Parish

James Anthony of St. Paul's Parish was probably a son of Mark Anthony and Isabella Hart. He is mentioned in the church records in 1731, 1732, and 1743.
History of Louisa Co., VA by Harris, p. 10:

James Anthony, Aug 25, 1731, 400 acres on North East Creek.

VA Tax Payers 1782-1787

Lists James Anthony, Louisa Co., with 8 slaves. He had at least one son: John Anthony, Sr., of St. Paul's Parish and NC.


John Anthony, Sr. is listed in church records 1755, 1759, and 1771. John Anthony executed the power of attorney to his son-in-law, Hudson Berry, in Caswell Co., NC, Mar 6, 1785 (Book C p. 45) to receive the legacy willed to him by his deceased father, James Anthony, of Hanover Co., VA John Anthony's will, Jul 1786, lists wife Ursula, and children:

  8. Nancy Anthony, md. …Stone

  9. Jean Anthony, md. …Corder.



Mark Anthony, Jr., St. Paul's Parish, Hanover Co., was probably a son of Mark Anthony and Isabella Hart. Vestry records, 1723, show he was paid for keeping a bastard child. In 1729, 1730, 1731, Mark Anthony, Jr. was paid for keeping John Lewis' child. Since records for Mark, Jr. stop after 1731, his father could have died and records for Mark Anthony for 1739-1767 should be credited to the son.
William & Mary Quarterly, 1st series, vol. 21, says:

"Mark Anthony, St. Paul's Parish, and Hester, his wife, sold 50 acres on Mattadequin Creek (being part of Patent of William Watson late of James City, deceased on Apr 5, 1724)".


Harrison Anthony (not brother but probably kinsman of Whitfield) listed in Jackson Co., GA 1832 Lottery; md. Jan 8, 1833, Nancy Cruise, Jackson Co.; was 2nd Lieut., Jackson Co., Mar 21, 1832-Mar 10, 1835, Indian War, 1832.

Lewis Anthony, b. SC is listed as a neighbor of Rev. Whitfield Anthony, 1840 census, Cherokee Co., AL. Because of dates and locations associated with Whitfield, they could have been brothers.

Lewis Anthony, I, is believed to have been a descendant of Mark Anthony and Isabella Hart, posssibly throught Capt. John Anthony of VA, NC, and SC, the father of Joel Anthony. We find the name Mark among the descendants. The following quotations state kinship to Joel's descendants:
Life and Sermons of Rev. J. D. Anthony, byt Rev. J. D. Anthony, p. 55:
Concerning Donations

"Owing to many sweeping revivals in the churches during the year, the popularity of the Presiding Elder, - My Coursin, Rev. Samuel Anthony - and the Holy Spirit which rested upon the labors of the coworkers with the junior preacher (for senior hold no protracted meetings), the stearts were able to pay eight-two cents on the dollar."

Pastors of Mulberry, 1826-1964, by Bessie Hart, biographical sketch on Dr. Walter Anthony:

"Rev. Samuel Anthony, pastor of Mulberry about seventy-five years before Dr. Walter Anthony, was a relative."

With few exceptions, the information on Lewis Anthony, I, and his descendants is copied from Lewis Anthony Family and Some Allied Families, by Miss Lillie Anthony, 2336 15th Ave., Vero Beach, FL 32960
Lewis Anthony, I, was snumerated in the census of 1800 and 1810 in old Pendleton District. In 1822 he was living in Edgefield Co.; at that time he sold land, which must have been their home. His wife, Elizabeth signed her right of dower. At that time or sometime shortly after, they moved to Gwinnett Co., GA, and in 1830 both they and their son Samuel and their daughter margaret were in Muscogee Co., GA We think they are both buried there in the cemetery where the son Lewis, II, and some of his family are buried.

Samuel Anthony, b. 1808, d. Mar 3, 1880, son of Lewis Anthony, I, and his wife, Elizabeth, md. (1) Mar 2, 1826, Gwinnett Co., GA, Elizbeth Blalock, b. Feb 18, 1805, d. Nov 19, 1851. Both were born in SC. She is buried in Talbotton, GA He is buried in Oak Park Cemetery, Americus, GA, on the same lot with his daughter, Martha, and at least one granddaughter. The Methodist church placed a bronze tablet on his monument, in honor of his memorable life and service.
He, and perhaps his wife, was converted in Gwinnett Co., GA Level Creek Church was orgainzed in a log building built by Phillip Lamar for a school house in 1822 or early 1823. One of those listed as licensed to exhort and then to preach was Rev. Samuel Anthony. The Presiding Elder expressed doubts that young Anthony would succeed as an itinerant preacher. He became one of Georgia's best loved ministers, affectionately called Uncle Sam. He drew land in the land Lottery of 1827 and thus he and his family came to Muscogee Co. He was admitted to the conference in 1832. His first assignment was to Okmulgee Circuit. During his second assignment it was said that the churches on his circuit received 1500 members. The statement is made that he was appointed by his conference to all the best places in the state at one time or other.
He was a delegate to the General Conference in 1845, out of which came the separation of the Methodist Episcopal Church and the beginning of the Methodist Episcopal Church South. He served on the board of directors of one or more colleges, also was one of those who helped to establish the South Georgia Methodist Orphanage, was Presiding Elder several times, (and) served Mulberry Church in Macon three times. (Ref: History of Gwinnett Co., GA, by J. C. Flannigan; History of Gwinnett Churches; Memo on the Death of Rev. Samuel Anthony, Mar 5, 1880, published in the Christian Advocate of that year; Life of Joseph Rucker, by Clarinda P. LaMar
Rev. Samuel Anthony was enumerated in the census of 1830 in Muscogee Co., GA p. 289; census of 1850, Talbot Co., GA; census of 1860, Randolph Co., GA
He was often referred to as the "Old Roman" because of his uncompromising opinions. He allowed no worldly element in the church, and for this e rebuked Mulberry's congregation because of the organ, saying "If that whimmer-jimmy in the left (loft?) will please keep quiet, Brother Danforth will raise the tune." On one occation, when (in) the act of performing a marriage ceremony, he was shot and grievously wounded by an enraged relative of the bride. He proceeded with the wedding despite his sufferings.
