I have done minimal research on the Andertons of Bedford County, TN in an attempt to trace the families of some Anderton cousin-in-laws (wife's cousins). I haven't been able to get back to a settler from out of state prior to the early 1800s, but would be very happy to share my file if you are interested and will contact me directly. I did find a brief reference below to a Peter Anderton. Could this be your ancestor?

The full regimental history and roster of men can be found at Anderton family ancestors James Martin Byrom (listed here), J.W. Anderton and William Melvin Ray were all three members of Company A who were known as “Thompson Creek Grays”.

I found a roster of A Company: Guys with Anderton, Ray and Byrom surnames were found as follows: 1st Lt. Milton S. Ray; Corporal George H. Ray; Privates James W. Anderton; John W. Anderton; Peter J. Anderton; William H. Anderton; James M. Byrom; John Byrom; Milton Byrom; Richmond D. Byrom (with note: died Sep 25 1864); Hezekiah Ray; Joseph S. Ray; Thomas C. Ray; and William G.M. Ray. Since all these folks were neighbors in civilian life, they were most likely otherwise related. – LDC 2003
