Who was John W. Anderson? A quick Google search provided multiple answers.
- Commodore John William Anderson was the longest serving captain of the SS United States
- John W Anderson, Automotive Hall of Fame member, and prolific inventor.
- Sheriff John W Anderson (per Facebook)
- John W Anderson, veteran at the battle of San Jacinto
- John W Anderson, attorney at law
and the list goes on.
While I’m sure all of these gentlemen have a story to tell, and we could learn from them, they are not the John W Anderson we are searching. Adding the phrase “slave pin” to the search will provide you the information you need.
