Gospel preacher. The following was written by B. F. Hall: "I went from there to another camp-meeting, higher up in the same county, where I preached the same doctrine, and baptized a number of persons for remission, among whom was Jas C. Anderson, now a very able and prominent preacher in Tennessee. The following is his own statement of the matter: "I was immersed by him (B. F. Hall), together with many others on the 15th day of September 1825 or 1826 in the State of Alabama, Jackson county in Jones' Creek. At that time he preached faith, repentance and baptism for remission of sins, but not so fully as it is now preached." I remained in Alabama until the spring of 1827, preaching all the while, and inculcating the doctrine of faith, repentance and baptism for remission of sins. I then returned to Kentucky, preaching, wherever I went, the same glorious truth. That summer and fall I spent in the counties of Mercer and Washington, (Ky.) and ere the snows, and storms, and chilling blasts of winter, together with fatigue, and the indisposition of my young family compelled me to retire, for a short time, from the field of labor, I had baptized more than fifty persons for remission. B. F. Hall, Millennial Harbinger, Vol. VII, No. 11, November 1843, page 514.

The following was written by Tolbert Fanning in the Gospel Advocate: "James C. Anderson is no more. He died at his home in Davidson county, Tenn., after lingering for some four years, on Saturday, September 12, 1857; aged about 58 years. He was baptized into Christ by M. W. Matthews in the year 1825, if we mistake not; began to preach the Gospel in 1826, and was a bold, fearless, and humble teacher of the Christian religion a little over thirty years. From the year 1827 till his death, we had not a more intimate acquaintance, and from our long and uninterrupted attachment, our deceased brother, before he breathed his last, requested that we should attend his funeral. Never did we,attend to service with a deeper sense of our nothingness before God, and we do not recollect to have witnessed more heart-felt sorrow by the many brethren and friends who were in attepdance. We can say of Brother Anderson what we can say of few. When truth and right were the question, policy had not the least weight with him. In all the trials we have experienced in Tennessee, James C. Anderson, has been an uncompromising advocate of the truth as it is written. He died a believer in the power and will ingness of Christ, to save him everlastingly. Sister Anderson and her orphan children have our sympathy; but we mourn not as those who have no hope. Elders E. D. Moore, J. E. Matthews, M. W. Matthews, teachers of our deceased brother in youth, are about all who remain, and it is a sad thought, that very few of us who have been his companions in the journey of life are spared. Blessed be the Lord for the consolations of the Gospel of Christ. ---T. F."
