ANTHONY - Quakers of Colonial Virginia
Compiled by Patricia Davidson-Peters 2000-2008
A Note from Patti: Mark Anthony's direct descendancy into the Moore & Pilcher lines is listed below, beginning with his son Joseph Anthony, and this line as far as I have researched and documented, is correct to the best of my knowledge.

The Anthony branch of the Moore-Pilcher family is traced by through the ancestry of Clarissa Pilcher-Moore (1845-1890) who was the daughter of Ezekiel Pilcher and Louisa (Ballard), and wife of Thomas Anderson Moore.  Louisa Ballard (1809-1872) was the daughter of William Ballard and Elizabeth (Anthony) who was the daughter of Christopher, son of Joseph Anthony.

Other lines of these families and data earlier than that which can be documented in the Quaker Records, has not been verified but has been taken from secondary sources. If you know of incorrect information which has been researched and documented, please feel free to contact me to correct these errors.

The Anthony ancestry is traced to Mark Anthony, who family "folklore" says he'd runaway from school in Italy on a merchant vessel which had been captured by pirates and that Mark had been taken as prisoner to Algiers.  After managing to escape on a British vessel, he came to the America Colonies and settled in Bedford County, VA where he had a grist mill and married Isabella Hart, who was the daughter of John Hart and Susannah Rush of Buck county, PA.

There are others who speculate that it was possibly Mark's brother John who was captured - this said to have been detailed in a book by William Oakey which was published in 1675. There has also been a dispute over whether Mark was actually of English or Italian descent and may have been connected with the family of Derick and Dr. Francis Anthony. Then there is another uncertainty of Isabella Hart's mother - some list her as Susanna Rush and others as Eleanor Crispin ... so, as always, please check your own sources and use other's as a guideline.

Thank you, and enjoy browsing.
