Pickens County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jun. 8, 1953
Georgia, USA

Martha Ann Hillhouse Anderson, the eldest daughter of Captain William C. and Martha Ann (Steele) Hillhouse, was born November 17, 1865 in Old Pickens County, SC The family moved to Greenville in 1870-71 where Mattie grew up and was educated. The family residence was at 45 College Street (corner of College and Buncombe).

She married Albert Williams Anderson on January 29, 1885 in the First Presbyterian Church of Greenville. Mr. Anderson was born November 27, 1863 at Cartersville, Georgia, the son of Dr. James Williams Anderson, a prominent physician of Laurens County, SC and Elizabeth Laurens Watts Anderson. His great-great-grandfather was Colonel James Williams one of the five American colonels who fought in the Battle of Kings Mountain, and a Revolutionary War hero.

Four daughters were born of this union: Lola, Virginia, Eloise and Anne. The family lived on Greene Street in Augusta, and later on the "hill" in North Augusta, SC.

Mattie was petite; showed markedly her French Huguenot ancestry in her vivaciousness, sparkling eyes, keen interest in life, and her strong love for family and family ties. Her home had about it an Old World charm.

Colonel Anderson died on February 3, 1930 and Martha Ann on June 8, 1953. Both are interred in the Westover Memorial Park at Augusta.
