Welcome Anderson, farmer, P. O. Xenia, was born in Guernsey County, Ohio, April 11, 1837, to S. C. and Sarah (Moore), Anderson. The father was a native of Pennsylvania, and the mother of Ohio. They were the parents of six children now living, three sons and three daughters. His occupation was that of a farmer.

When our subject was about nine years of age, he removed to Muskingum County, Ohio, with his parents, and it was there he was reared and educated. He remained at home till about twenty-two years of age, and then began for himself. In 1861, he went to Texas, and for four years was engaged in the sheep business. In 1865, he sold out and returned to Ohio, and engaged in the saw mill business. In 1866. he brought his mill to Clay County, Ill., and for three years was engaged in that business, and then began farming.

He now owns 240 acres of prairie land and 40 of timber, on which he does general farming. In 1867, he was married in this county, to Miss Sallie J. Anderson, a daughter of Joseph Anderson, whose sketch appears. This union has been blest with the following named children: Ezra W., Flora O, Asher L. and Leslie J. Mr. Anderson is identified with the Democratic party, but has avoided political life.
