Anderson was called "Huey" by his mother which he detested, so he dropped his middle name.

There were 2 add'l births but the children were either stillborn or died young; there is no record for them. They were born in Indiana. Elizabeth's parents and some of her siblings are buried at the Farmers Institute Cemetery, Romney, Tippecanoe Co., Indiana.
Second Wife: Married Mary Lane (cousin to Elizabeth) 19 May 1844 in Tippecanoe Co., Indiana.
In 1853, Anderson trekked the Oregon Trail with his family. At Ft. Boise, Anderson joined other pioneers in following Elijah Elliott on his "short-cut" across Eastern Oregon following the Malheur River. This route would eliminate continuing on the Oregon Trail down the treacherous Columbia River. However, this wagon train became known as "The Lost Wagon Train" because of the difficulties suffered in crossing eastern Oregon. Anderson arrived in Lane County and secured a Donation Land Claim of 640 acres (near today's Junction City).
Upon settling on his DLC near Alvadore, he became a founding member of the local Masonic Lodge.
