These two properties appear to be on the same river bottom as Anderson's Bottom. In fact, "Lot 11" is the lot directly south of Anderson's Bottom and mentions "the House that William Anderson now lives" as a landmark for the northern line. This agrees with the hand drawn map of the Bottom that the Andersons did in the 1890s, which the Anderson House at the south end of the property.

Thomas Bryan Martin was Lord Fairfax's nephew.

This is the same property as the 1793 Thomas Anderson deed. John Philips identified it as the bill of sale for Anderson's Bottom when he sent me a copy of his original.

This is an antique hand-drawn map of Anderson's Bottom. It was created either by J.H. Anderson, or his son J.T. Anderson as part of the research work they did in the 1890s when J.H. wanted to reacquire the property but could not afford it even though he was very wealthy.
