Geocache Description:

You are looking for a small camo'd container. BYOP. There is a small pullover at Berkshire & Clough.

Anderson Township was organized in 1793 and named after Colonel Richard Clough Anderson (1750-1826), who fought at the Battle of Yorktown and was the principal surveyor of lands appropriated by Virginia as compensation to Virginia's Revolutionary War soldiers in lieu of money in the new cash strapped nation.


Clough Creek and the road Clough Pike are also named in honor of this man who never actually lived here. His job as the surveyor was to sell it to others who did the pioneering.
Anderson was also a charter member of Society of the Cincinnati, founded in 1783 to preserve the ideals and fellowship of the Revolutionary War officers and to pressure the government to honor pledges it had made to officers who fought for American independence. It is from this society that Cincinnati gets its name.

Col. Anderson was married to Elizabeth Clark, sister of William Clark of Lewis and Clark Expedition fame. He died at his home in Louisville, KY in 1826 and is buried in the Anderson Family Cemetery there.
