Ellen Marie Branch was born 1881 in Wilson, the 5th of 6 known surviving children (2 boys/4 girls) born to BB&T bank founder Alpheus P. Branch and his wife, Nancy "Nannie" Barnes, the only surviving child of Gen. Joshua Barnes, "the father of Wilson County".

Ellen married Selby H. Anderson of Virginia in 1902 when she was 21 years old, and he 28. The couple would reside in Wilson all their lives, where her husband prospered and was well-known in the community. They were parents to 4 known children, with only child surviving: Marie Anderson (1910-1981).

In 1917, the Anderson's built a home at 901 West Nash Street in the new "bungalow" architectural style, and today the home remains one of the finest examples of Bungalow Style, for which Wilson is nationally known.
