BOOK - HISTORY OF MOWER COUNTY, MN. PUBLISHED IN 1911. John H. Anderson, a hardworking farmer of Clayton township, was born in Adams township, July 7, 1872, son of Hans and Isabell Anderson. He was educated in the country schools, and when twenty years of age started in life on his own responsibility. He worked out by the month, then on the railroad and then at the carpenter trade one year. For four years he rented land, and then purchased eighty acres.

He now has 160 acres in section 17, Clayton township, and on this he now conducts mixed farming. He has forty-five head of cattle, which he raises for dairy and beef purposes, a drove of hogs and several head of grade Percheron horses. His house is well located, and an evergreen drive adds greatly to the appearance of the place.

Mr. Anderson is a Republican in politics, has been road overseer two years and treasurer of school district 74 for two terms.

The subject of this sketch was married January 1, 1896, to Christina Huseby, daughter of Arne A.
