Notes: as per A Family History Of Some Of The Descendents Of Alexander Anderson and Catherine Kennedy by Hazel Anderson of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. (1976)
"All of the above family from John to Daniel were born in Beckwith Twp, Ont. with the possible exception of Daniel, who may have been born in South Monagan after the family moved up there from Beckwith Twp. The parents were apparently born in Scotland. They (the Parents) came out here in the early 1820's and settled first in Beckwith and then were persuaded by a brother of Catherine Kennedy's to come up to S. Monaghan where he had some better farmingland. In Beckwith they had become acquainted with several other famlies who had come from England and perhaps Ireland and Scotland. Some of their names were Gillanders, Rutherfords, Dawsons and Embersons. These neighbours decided to come up to S. Monaghan with the Andersons and in course of time, marriages took place between these families. "
"These are the baptismal dates for some of the above family members:
John May 11-1823
Duncan Feb 27-1825
Margaret May 18-1829
Alexander Nov. 7-1830
Note- Baptismal records in the Genealogical Library in Salt Lake City show an ALEXANDER ANDERSON, who was the eldest son of ALEXANDER ANDERSON and HELEN ROBISON who was baptized on Dec. 30- 1792. We presume this was our ALEXANDER (1) at the top of this page, but have no conclusive proof.. The details of this family appear on another page herewith."

Notes for Christiana Anderson:|
The following history of the Anderson family was written to her nieces July 13, 1953 by Miss Margaret Emberson, who was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Emberson, of South Monaghan, Ontario. Mrs William Emberson was formerly Miss Margaret Anderson, daughter of Alexander Anderson and Catherine Kennedy Anderson. WESTON, July 13, 1953
" When Grandfather married, Christie went to work for Mr. and Mrs. Wat Riddell, whose family consisted of twins, Robert and Jenny and John, whom you will remember, Dorothy, as our Sunday School Superintendent.
Aunt Christie told me how she managed to keep the twins out of mischief and get on with the work by placing them on the floor and putting a heavy iron on their skirts at the back. There were no play pens in those days. These folks lived in a log house, but later built a fine one of stone where Mr. and Mrs. Collins lived, which you will remember."
