"William Anding, Sr., a leading citizen of Gillford Township, where he was in former years actively engaged in agricultural pursuits, but is now retired, was born in Hesse, Germany, March 16, 1847, son of Moritz and Dorothy (Clemenhagen) Anding. He was a young child when he accompanied his parents to America, and resided with them for a short time near Highland, Wis. In the fall of 1855 he came alone to Gillford Township, Wabasha County, Minn., to split rails and fence a farm, or tract of wild land, that his father had purchased here in section 13, and was joined by the rest of the family in the following spring. This farm he helped his father to develop, and when his parents moved to Read's Landing, about 1873, William Anding bought 80 acres of the home farm, where he has since resided. His original 80 acres, however, have been increased by him to 400, by additional purchases, and he has developed an excellent farm. Industrious and frugal, he achieved success, and continued actively engaged in agricultural work until 1905, when he retired, and has since led a life of comparative leisure. His son, William H., operates the original 80 acres of the old homestead. William Anding, Sr., was married March 19, 1872, to Magdalena Kirchner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christian Kirchner of Glasgow Township, Wabasha County ..."
