James Anderson's mother was a cousin of George Weedon. His mother's Weedon connection also means that his great grandparents are also the grandparents of Joseph Smith.
James is also related to Frank Baldwin through his aunt's marriage to John Baldwin. He is also distantly connected to James Lewis through his grandfather's brother who
was the father-in-law of Edward Herbert Lewis, brother of James Lewis. See relevant trees.
Anderson descendants still live in the village today.
