Corporal, Company G, 6th Indiana Infantry, Civil War.


George W. Anderson, who passed away at his home in Palacios Thursday evening, Sept. 3, was born at Elizabethtown, Ind., on June 11, 1845.

At the beginning of the Civil War, he, with four of his brothers, enlisted with the Sixth Indiana Regiment and served throughout the war. After the war he was married to Miss Julia Carley and to this union were born three children. Mrs. Anderson died at their home here, Nov. 9, 1928.

Mr. Anderson, with his family, lived in Indiana until 1890, when they moved to Kansas. Twenty years later he moved to Texas and settled on a farm near Dunbar. Five years ago he moved to Palacios, where he spent his last days.

While a young man, Mr. Anderson obeyed the Christ and worshipped with the Christian Church at West Port, Ind., and throughout his life he has been an ardent and devoted servant of his Master.

He is survived by one sister, who lives in Indiana, a son, Fred Anderson and a daughter, Mrs. S. B. Lee, both of Palacios, besides a multitude of friends, who will miss him as he took his long walk every day or sat and talked with some of his associates.

Burial was made in the Hawley Cemetery east of Blessing on Friday afternoon, with services conducted by Rev. C. F. Conner.

Mr. Anderson was well passed the four score milestone of an earthly career and had lived a life of habits and deeds that leaves an influence not soon forgotten.

THE PALACIOS BEACON, September 10, 1931
