The Anson — Sands Connection of Delaware County New York

Part I: Descendants of Jesse and Maria (Sands) Anson

 

By Maralyn D. Tolman and Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

 

    This essay describes the family life, origins and two generations of descendants of Jesse Anson and Maria L. Sands of Delaware County, New York.  Both of these individuals came from American colonial families and had the misfortune (from a genealogical point of view) of being raised in one of the most difficult time periods for New York county records.  For this reason there exists much speculative and incorrect published information about the couple, their contemporary relatives and their origins.  It is our purpose to provide documentation for that which is actually known.

     Part I describes the descendants (three generations) of Jesse and Maria (Sands) Anson; Part II and Part III describe the ancestry of Jesse Anson and then Maria Sands, respectively.

Generation One

    1. Jesse Anson was born 2 Jun 1820 in Delaware County, New York, the son of Job and Charlotte (Holmes) Anson;1 died 11 Mar 1894 at Stevens Point, Portage, Wisconsin from a hemorrhage of the brain caused by a fall on the sidewalk.2,3    He was orphaned at age 14 (abt 1834) with both parents dying within a month of one another; he was one of three brothers and eight sisters.4    He moved west to Belvidere, Illinois in 1838 and then three years later north to Grand Rapids, Wisconsin.5   He worked winters as a woodsman and otherwise on the river being a seasonal river pilot. Jesse fought in the Civil War in the 5th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment (1861-1864);6 he was wounded 5 May 1862 at Williamsburg, VA and fought at Gettysburg, but the 5th Wisconsin only arrived on the third and last day of the battle.7   His wife Maria filed for his pension 4 Apr 18948 shortly after his death.

    He married 9   Maria L. Sands10   29 Aug 1844 at Belvidere, Boone, Illinois; she was born at Tompkins Township, Delaware, New York and died 9 Feb 1910 at Belvidere, Boone, Illinois and is buried next to her husband in the Forest Cemetery, Stevens Point, Portage, Wisconsin. She was the daughter of Obadiah and Mary (Orr) Sands of Delaware County, New York.  She moved from Delaware County with her family in 1836 to settle in Belvidere, Boone County.11    She met and married Jesse there in 1844.12    In the 1880 U. S. Census Jesse’s father was indicated to have been born in Connecticut, his mother in New York; Maria’s parents were both reportedly born in New York.13   

    Jesse and Maria were among the first settlers of Steven’s Point; Maria was the second white woman to arrive at Steven’s Point.14    The Portage County Historical Society has an interesting account15 of Maria Anson’s journey in 1845 (at age 20) with a Mr. H. Stow and a Mr. J. Q. A. Rollins (her husband had taken some cattle to the pinery for logging purposes) from ‘Bogus’ Prairie (Bonus, Illinois) to Portage (Wisconsin) and then Pointe Basse (now Nekoosa) under very harsh physical conditions.

They raised their family in Portage County, Wisconsin, but moved from Wisconsin to Blackfoot, Idaho in 1885 and then back to Wisconsin in 1891. His sons Perry and Daniel lived in Blackfoot at the time; he had charge of a toll bridge over the Snake River at $75/month w/house and fuel included. After Jesse’s death in 1894, Maria stayed frequently with her daughter Mary J. Rowell in Minneapolis and with her sister Betsey (Sands) Sands in Belvidere, Boone, Illinois until Betsey’s death. 16,17

    Jesse and Maria (Sands) Anson had four children: 18,19

     5   iv. GEORGE DANIEL ANSON, born Apr 1858 at Plover, Portage, Wisconsin and died after 192020 and is probably buried21 in the Gavilan Hills Memorial Park in Gilroy, Santa Clara, California. He is ‘Dan’ in most records. He most likely never married.22   At his father’s death23  in 1894, he was stated to be ‘in the south (Arkansas)’.24  He lived his later years in California25 working as a cook.26
