Birth: Jun. 29, 1899
Garland County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 1927
Bismarck
Hot Spring County
Arkansas, USA

Jack was the son of James"Jim" Thomas Anderson, Jr. and Susan "Susie" Catherine (Griffith) Anderson.

Jack married Mamie Juanita Sanders. No record of the dates or place of marriage. They had two sons.

1--Robert "Bobby" [????-????]
2--Anderson [????-????]

I have never been able to get any information on either of Jack's boys.

I think the second son's name was Leslie, but I am not for sure.

Following is the article that Catherine Anderson Delsindico sent to me of how Jack died.

GUS COUNTS IN JAIL CHARGED WITH KILLING JACK ANDERSON
December 29, 1927

Gus Counts of Bismarck is in jail awaiting his preliminary hearing on a charge of murder, having given himself up to Sheriff Fisher after fatally shooting Jack Anderson Sunday afternoon at Count's home 1 1/2 miles north of Bismarck.

It appears that Counts and Anderson had been together most of the day and late in the afternoon, with several others, went to Counts home presumably in search of whiskey. Anderson is said to have used profane language in the presence of Counts wife and children and when remonished, Anderson seized a smoothing iron and attempted to strike Counts. At this juncture of the difficulty, Counts grabbed an automatic shot gun and fired at Anderson from a distance of about five feet, the load striking Anderson in the right side and killing him instantly.

All in the party had been drinking heavily, we are told, and the killing was the result of drunkenness.

Counts and Anderson are said to be brothers-in-law. Counts is about 32 years of age.

GUS COUNTS BOUND OVER TO GRAND JURY
January 8, 1928

Gus Counts of Bismarck, who surrendered to Sheriff T.S. Fisher, Monday morning after he had shot killed Jack Anderson, Sunday night, was bound over to the Hot Spring County Grand Jury on a charge of murder in the first degree. The preliminary hearing was before Justice of the Peace Arthur Fitzhugh at 10.30 Thursday morning. Attorney H.B. Means representing the prisoner waived hearing.
The Grand Jury meets in this city January 16th.

Jack's wife Mamie remarried on December 23, 1928 to Walter L. Thompson who was a police officer.

I do not have a picture of Jack. If someone has a picture of him and would like to add it to his Memorial, please do. The top headstone picture is the one I took. The 2nd one widowmate had added to the Memorial. I went ahead and added mine because you can read it better.

Jack was my first cousin, 2 times removed.
