1891-excerpt of interview in newpaper in Huntsivlle.
Uncle Billy Anderson cannot remember back to where the people put a stone in one end of the sack and corn in the other when going to mill, but distincly recalls the seasons when farmers had to wait until the hickory bark would peel to get lines to do their spring plowing with. He has harvested wheat in this township with a heap-hook, and at an early date when rattlesnakes were thick enough to use as binders for grain. He came to Schuyler county in October, 1835, and settled on the banks of Missouri Creek, south of where Henry Cady now resides; built a round long cabin on the exact spot of his present residence in the spring of 1836, moved into it and reaised his rist crop of wheat; got in frowund at Rawls Mills at Brooklyn and conveyed the flour on an ox wagon to Fort Madison, Iowa, and sold it. Has been farming for forty-eight consecutive years on the farm he now owns, and during that time has purchased but one load of corn. Cast his first vote for General Jackson, and is at it yet. Among his sons and son-in-laws there is sixteen voters and but one Republican. Uncle Bily and Aunt Prude have been keeping house steadily for sixty years, and their record stands without a parallel in this township for hospitality and smoothly running household affairs, and the great length of their active domestic life will never be again equalled, and no doubt many who read this would take little comfort from the knowledge that their domestic surroundings would reach sixty years of standard time. They have living five children, thirty-three grandchildre and ten great-grandchildren. Few people run through an intimate knowledge and acquaintance of three different generations and retain the universal good will and esteem of all the marked degree enjoyed by this ages and respectable couple.
