THE CHARITON LEADER
Thursday, March 14, 1918
MRS. CARL ANDERSON
Margaret Letitia Davis was born in English township, Lucas county, Iowa, March 20, 1859, and departed this life on March 8, 1918, at the age of 58 years, 11 months and 18 days. She was the daughter of Edmund and Susannah Davis, both of whom have been dead many years.
After she had secured her education in the local schools of her day she taught for a time. On February 15, 1888, she was united in marriage to Carl Anderson, when they went to housekeeping on a farm in Pleasant township.
Three years later they moved to English township where they lived for nineteen years, and then moved to the present home one-half mile north of Chariton. No children were born to them.
She is survived by the faithful husband, two sisters, Mrs. N. L. Stone, of Perry, Ia., and Mrs. Emma Wilson, of Chariton, the only remaining members of the family of six girls and two boys.
For many years Mrs. Anderson has suffered greatly from failing health and death came to relieve her of her suffering.
At an early age she united with the Christian church, transferring her membership in 1908 to the First Presbyterian church in English township, later uniting with the First Presbyterian church of Chariton, where she was a faithful member at the time of her decease.
Mrs. Anderson was beloved by all who knew her, a friendly neighbor, kind and thoughtful of others and consistent in her Christian life. In her home she was ever willing to make it pleasant for her husband and all who came under its hospitality.
The funeral service was conducted from the First Presbyterian church of Chariton by her pastor, Rev. Chas. W. McClelland, Sabbath afternoon at 2:30. Interment took place in the Chariton cemetery.
