Anderson's Father was John b 1802. Do you know what his mother's name was?

You know Bill, I must be tired, forgot about the Andersons that were
connected by marriage to the Adams in Jackson County. Thomas my ancestor's
brother md Lavina Duncan Crowder in 1861 in White County Il, she had three
daughters by Philip Crowder, one was named Octavia, and she married Enoch
Anderson, 3 Aug 1873, they had one son, Charles b 14 June 1878, Octavia died
between 6 June 1880 and 9 July 1882, when Enoch married his second wife
Margaret Luther. She died, and he md his third wife Martha Crothers 2 Sept
1883, and had another son Samuel Anderson b 3 Sept 1884. Enoch died
somewhere from the birth of Samuel, and 1900. Both of the sons spent time
with Lavina, she even lived with one of them in her old age. And the eldest
one was her grandson. Nothing is known of Enoch's parents,but I think he is
connected to Granderson Anderson, but haven't proved it yet.
Stranger yet is the fact of the relationship between the Warrens and the
Adams. My ancestor, Anderson b 1832 Tn md Nancy Duncan Unknown around 1860,
she had a young girl with her named Mary Warren 8 yrs old, Mary was with
them in White Co, and I found her in Jackson Co too.
My Anderson's dad, John Adams b ca 1802 Va (died White Co Il ca 1858-9), is
my brick wall, story was that he left home to trade with the Indians, and
returned about 5 years later and the folks had moved on, and he never found
them again. I think I have every census for the appropriate years in Tn and
Ky, I have searched and searched, and have only one family that looks
promising, but they have 1-2 older extra kids, which could be possible. John
was certainly old enough to have had older kids.
So maybe your Elijah is related to my bunch??? (Except for that weird name
which you'd think I would have come across while researching the Adamses in
Ky and Tn)
