Son of Edmund Samuel Anderson and Bertha Charlotte Wilcox
Biography - Eskel was the oldest of two sons born to Samuel Anderson and his wife Bertha Charlotte Wilcox. The family lived in Manning, which is now a ghost town and was active as a mining town. After Samuel died sometime in the first decade of the twentieth century, Bertha and her two sons returned to live with her mother in Cedar Fort. She remarried and the family lived in Smithfield.
Eskel went to work for a Mr. Jorgenson in Nevada. He was driving a team pulling a hay lift when the bolt broke, letting the doubletrees fly back hitting him in the stomach. Mr. Jorgenson sent a man on horseback four miles to hold the train till they could get Eskel there. He was taken home across the Lucein Cutoff. He asked the man that was with him to raise him up so he could see the sunset over the Great Salt Lake. He was about fifteen years old. He died about two days after he got home. It was a great shock to them and a great loss. He was such a sweet boy.
