Arthur Frizzle

Speculation: Some have claimed that Jonathan Sr. and John Frizzle were sons of Arthur Frizzle of Princess Anne County, Virginia. Perhaps so, but no proof yet.

Research needed:
As the age of Revolution and Romanticism developed in the last part of the century, there was a marked increase in labouring-class poetry, much of it socially and politically oriented, and marked by a linguistic range and freedom not seen earlier. This John Frizzle was an Eighteenth Century English Labouring-Class Poet.
John Frizzle An Irih Miler, to Mr Stephen Duck (fl.1733)

The Ouachita Telegraph February 21, 1867 Page 1, Column 4
The Union Record furnishes the following brief but unusually melancholy history of a husband and wife of Union Parish. The history of our late friend and neighbor, Henry Anderson, is a sad one. He and his wife and daughter, about two months since, went to N. Orleans. Not having heard from them for some time after they should have been at home the friends of the family made the necessary investigation and found that after reaching the city Mr. Anderson and wife both died, and the daughter has been very low ever since, and is at this time. Mr. Anderson was one of our most energetic and useful citizens, and his loss will be greatly felt by the community. They leave two or three small children fatherless and motherless.

FAMILY LORE - contributed by Sherry Gresham Gritzbaugh
My great grandmother, Mrs. Wiley (Mittie Rea) Anderson once told me Elizabeth Thomas, the second wife, and Henry P. Anderson went to New Orleans to sell cotton. There was a fever epidemic. Henry P. got sick and Elizabeth stayed behind to take care of him. She also became ill. It has been told that they were buried in a mass grave.... I was also told they took some former slaves with them. It would be interesting to know how the daughter was able to get back home.... .

Tutorship of the heirs of Mary A. Wood Decd: Petition and Account: Filed: July 3rd., 1867 Reads in part: To the Hon. the Judge of the Eleventh Judical Dist. Court in & for the Parish of Union & State of Louisiana. The Petition of James M. Anderson, Adm. of the succession of Henry P. Anderson decd...respectfully represents, That in obedience to the order of the Court requiring the rendition of the account of Tutorship of said Anderson and said heirs of Mary A. Wood decd, former wife of said Anderson & the said heirs of their marriage. Petitioner farther shows that the said tutorship commenced upon the death of Mary A. Wood decd. in July 9th. 1847 but that the said Henry P. Anderson never rendered any account of the same up to the time of his death which took place in 1866. That Petitioner has not been able to discover among the papers of said decd or any where else, any vouchers or other evidences of the amounts paid out by said Tutor for the minors, nor of the amounts received by him for them and & petitioner has therefore been compelled to make an estimate of the revenues of the property of said minors. That the said Tutor conducted his affairs and raised his family with the strictest economy - That nearly every thing that was consumed by the family was raised or made at home. And the children received their education at home. That the children were raised to work & that their services were valuable contributed greatly to their support during the period of the tutorship. Petitioner further represents that he has not taken into consideration in making out the account the receipts or settlements referred to in the petition of Eliza Anderson and husband for the order under which this account is rendered, but has disregarded said entirely, for the reason that the same were nullities the said PRETENDED receipts having been given by this petitioner in his personal capacity & by the said E. A. Anderson and husband. Tutor had never rendered any account of his tutorship, nor submitted any vouchers, which the law required before any valid settlement could be made with his wards- And the said receipts were also absolutely null for the further reason that the amount of said receipts were not for money or any other valuable consideration but for a part of the negroes which had belonged to petitioner and the other heirs of Mary A. Wood decd. being those which they inherited from their mother as aforesaid and which negroes if then slaves would have been freed when slavery was abolished in the state of Louisiana. Petitioner further shows that he closed the account of tutorship with the balance due July 7th 1861 with legal interest for the time that his reasons for this were that the late war at that time had commenced and crops were consumed or used for the support of the army. Wherefore petitioner prays that notices of the filing of this account may be approved and homologated in all of its parts. Petitioner further prays for such future orders and decrees as may be necessary in the premisesand for all general and quitable relief. James M. Anderson, Adm. in the estate of H.P. Anderson decd.
