Meriwether Anderson (6James, 5James, 4James, 3James, 2James, 1Edmund) Lewis of Madison Co AL

Meriwether Anderson Lewis was born 5/25/1809 in Louisa Co VA. And, he probably grew up on the Watkins family property at Watkins Mill until their migration to Alabama.

In about 1818 after the sale of property--not necessarily land--Meriwether Anderson, along with his family, migrated down to Madison Co AL. And, their migration route would have probably taken them up the Valley of Virginia to the Wilderness Road and from Kingston TN down the Tennessee River to the vicinity of Huntsville AL.

On 10/21/1834 in Madison Co AL, Meriwether Anderson married Charlotte Hudson b. 1818 in North Carolina. He and Charlotte lived out their lives in Madison Co AL where he died on 9/29/1861.
