Don't know if I can help. There are 4 or 5 Johnny Andersons in and around Dyersburg. Need a little more info. What is your name? What is your mom's name and her maidan name if married? Do you have any siblings if so what are their names? Does your mom have any siblings?
Maybe

I am 28. i was born in July of 1980. his moms name started with an "R". my mom said it was kind of an unusual name like Rachael or Rochell but she couldn't remember her exact name. My moms name at the time was Gloria Gibson, maiden name was Anderson. they used to tease each other that they could be related. they werent but they used to tease each other. i would just love to at least see him even if its in a photo. just so i could say i know what my dad looks like. if any 1 does know him please let him know that he has a daughter that wants to meet him. if he doesnt want to have anything to do with me thats fine. just a photo would be good enuff for me. at least i would know what he looks like. if any 1 needs more info just let me know. i know he's out there but i dont know how to find him. i pray that some 1 can help me.

i think he had 1 brother and 1 sister but im not sure. i dont really know much about him. i know this might not be the best way to find him but i dont know what else to do. this seems to be the only way that i will ever have any chance of locating him. the bad thing is im not even sure if he still lives in dyersburg. any info any 1 can give me will be greatly appreciated. hope this helps. if any 1 has any more questions just leave them here and i will answer them the best i can. thank you.

I know the Johnny Anderson from Friendship. His mom's name is Ruth, but he has quite a few more than 1 brother and 1 sister. There is also a Johnny Anderson that is his relative. His mom's name is Rachel, but he also has several sisters. These two men are as different as daylight and dark.

AND...not to say it is impossible, but the Johnny Anderson that lives in Friendship was married at the time you would have been conceived and for several years after that. He appeared to be very dedicated and very much in love with his wife.

On the other hand, the other Johnny was/is a bit of a carouser and the Mom's name (Rachel) and his way of life seems to fit the situation more. He has a sister that works in the City Schools central office. You might check there.

Good luck....BUT BE SURE you are ready for whatever you find out.

Years ago our family was split apart because of circumstance and I was separated from my brother. After years of looking for each other we found each other and I was expecting some story book reunion with everyone being a happy family again. It turns out he was completely different than how I ever expected himt o be and the experience ended with me losing thousands of dollars that he swindled out of me during a very emotional time and with guilt (he's my brother, how can I not help him?) and I have been heartbroken ever since.
Just remember whenever you meet someone in a situation liket his that you owe them nothing. Don't let them hurt you. Don't give yourself false hope of everything being good in the end.
I wish you the best of luck on this, but be careful.

i will check into that, or at least try. i am ready. i honestly dont expect him to want to have anything to do with me and if thats the case then thats fine. Even just a photo of him would be fine. thank u so much and i will try to check out the school office. well after i figure out what to say to her. lol.

i am sorry to hear that ur reunion with your brother didnt turn out like u hoped. that is very sad. and i understand what u r saying about false hope. dont worry it wont bother me if he doesnt want to have anything to do with me. i would like to get to know him and everything but i would understand if it didnt happen that way. this is a BIG SHOCK for any 1. if i do find him and all else fails i would hope that he would at least send me a picture. just so i could say i know what he looks like. thank u for the advice and again im sorry about ur brother.

is Friendship a part of dyersburg? the second guy u r talking about does sound like he would be the closest 1. that might sound bad but we have all done things we arent proud of. they were young. and i dont hold a grudge against him or my mom. if u can find out any more i would greatly appreciate it.

I don't know much about him (Johnny #2). I am married to one of the brothers of the one from Friendship. I honestly don't think his brother is the one. though like I said before, I'm not saying it is impossible. I don't know. Friendship is actually Crockett County, but the F.ship Johnny lives in Dyer County but closer to F.ship.

As for previous history and such..I honestly know exactly where you are coming from. I actually only met my biological father a little over 10 yrs ago. Let me give you this warning. It is awkward ...BE PREPARED for the worst, PRAY for the best.

If you go to the school office, you need to see Judy...she usually works at the front desk, just as you go in. Maybe I should not give you this info..I'm not sure. I just know what I went through and when I saw the thread...it caught my eye.

Good luck to you.

im happy to hear u got to meet ur dad! ive already prepared for the worst that way if he doesnt want to have anything to do with me it wont be that hard. i dont know him anyway. that makes it a lil easier. when my mom first told me who my dad really was it actually didnt bother me like she thought it would. i know the situation she was in with her first husband and after she divorced him is when she got with Johnny so i guess thats why it didnt bother me. hubby 1 was really mean to her and she was young so she got a lil crazy after they divorced. but anyway i dont know which way it will go if and when i find him but it doesnt really matter...it does but well u know what i mean. i want to find him but if it doesnt turn out good i will be fine with it. THIS IS A MAJOR SHOCK. i really appreciate the help. ill see what i can turn up. thank u so much.

Themanoftheday seems to have a bit of direct contact info for you. This is the same person I am speak of (or at least the family details fit). I just know where a couple of the sisters are and where the mom still lives. If you can get a number to him that would better than approaching his sis.

thats about the age he should be. he was a lil younger than my mom. this all sounds like he could be the one. its almost too much to be just a coincidence. ya mom said he was a lil wild and liked to drink. if this isnt him then i dont think i will ever find him. the guy u r describing sounds like the 1 my mom told me about. she cant remember too much about him but what she has told me and what u have told me sounds like the same guy. i doubt u will know this but ill ask any way. what color eyes and hair does he have? and do u know how i can get a hold of him? thank u so much for all of this!!
