The Martin Alexander Anding family of Caseyville, then Copiah County, Mississippi, was a neighbor to the Buie family, slave owning family of members of my family. Descendants of Anding slaves married descendants of my family.

Martin's wife Mary Lambright was the owner of the family bible. Mary and others listed the births of the Anding family and at the bottom of a page, the slaves births were listed.

One of the babes listed, Samuel Anding aka Samuel Anderson, served with the 6th Regiment, Company I, during the Civil War. Samuel met Caroline Williams while in Natchez. The couple married after the War and raised a family in Jefferson County, near where Caroline was raised. Samuel died in 1916

Genealogy research has not revealed a connection between Samuel Anding and my ancestors.
