THIS IMMEMORIAM APPEARED IN THE JACKSON COUNTY SENTINAL THURSDAY, MAY 22, 1902:
Whereas our Brother James H. Anderson departed this life at his home in the 11th Civil District of Jackson County on the 15th of May 1902. We his brethren of the fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons, who are permitted to survive him; deem it proper and expedient upon this occasion to give expression to the profound sorrow that we are caused to experience because of his untimely demise, and to record a few facts and loving sentiments in perpetuation of his memory.
Brother James H. Anderson was born in Jackson County, Tennessee on the 15th day of March 1842, and in early life, ere he had attained his majority, he led to the altar Miss Mary A. Fuqua a blushing and beautiful bride to whom he was married on the 13th day of January 1859, who now survives him and who is trying with Christian fortitude to bear tuis great inflection.
When the storm cloud of Civil War swept over our country in 1861 when the state of Tennessee called upon her chivalric and patriotic sons to respond to the tocsin of war, in defense of those principles that are yet dear to every Southern heart; with a soul throbbing and full of enthusiasm and patriotic sentiments he presented himself as a sacrifice upon his country's altar by volunteering as a member of Company E; 28th Tennessee Infantry Regt. of the Confederate Army, and served his country as a soldier with admirable distinction and bravery until the cessation of hostilities and after he had demonstrated his invincible and unaltered adherence to the principles of local self government and state sovereignty. He returned to his humble home in Jackson County and has since endeavored to maintain that high moral standard as a citizen that had characterized him as a soldier. He was an upright man and Mason, having been raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in Tannehill Lodge F & AM in 1868, since which time he has lived a faultless and faithful exemplification of the principles of our order until the supreme architect of the universe called him hence.
Brother Anderson was an earnest, courageous and conscientious Christian gentleman, having heard the beautiful story of the lowly Nazarene and yielded a loving obedience to the Gospel and became a member of the Christian church in October 1896, in whose fellowship he lived until he was called to pass through the flowing gateway of death to join the grand reunion on the plains of immortality.
Therefore be it resolved by the officers and members of Tannehill Lodge, No. 133 F & AM, that we bow with Humble submission to this decree of the Supreme Master of the universe in calling from our midst our beloved Brother that we will ever cherish his memory and strive to emulate his virtues, that we hereby extend to his sorrowing wife and children our heart felt sympathy and condolence in this hour of their great bereavement and sorrow.
Be it further resolved, that as a testimonial of our respect and esteem for our dear Brother and also as an expression of our profound sorrow on this occasion we wear the usual badge of mourning for 30 days, and that the secretary furnish the family of our deceased Brother a copy of these resolutions and also a copy be furnished the Sentinel with request that the same be published.
