They came to Ohio in the pioneer days of that state, then came to Montgomery Co in 1836. J. Anderson was marr in 1839 to Amanda BOWERS, daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth Bowers. By this marr. he has 7 children: Mary J; Roda A and Christena are the only ones living. His noble wife and pious mother were called to join her children gone before in 1877. He is now living with his second wife, Mrs. Mary ROYER . He and his wife are members of the German Baptist Church. His first wife died in the same faith. Mr. Anderson is a republican in politics. His great interest in behalf of the welfare of his children led him to part with all his land but 50 acres. His early education was very limited. He, like all of his faith, has a particular regard for the inward monitions of conscience, which, though it does not make a man rich in houses and lands, it brings peace and tranquility to the soul.
