"He lived with his parents on the home farm until reaching maturity.
Later on he journeyed to Holland, where his parents resided for some
considerable time before coming to America....
John and Susanna C. Anawalt removed from Holland to England in 1789....
Shortly thereafter they came back to America and settled in Somerset
County (then a part of Bedford County) Pa., where they remained for
the rest of their lives. He soon became a leading citizen in that
section of the State. He was a contracting Carpenter and Builder and
was a Bridge Builder of considerable note. Many of the early bridges
in Somerset and Bedford Counties were build [sic] by him....
He is credited with services in the [War of 1812]...."
