After an illness of more than a year, peacefully passes away at his home Saturday Night.


One of the most Useful Men the County ever produced, Sickened of Arterio-scierosis and lingered life away.

We were called upon Monday to stand by the grave of Frank Anderson who breathed his last, Saturday night at his colonial home in this town.

Previous to the burial of his body Rev. C. R. Lacy conducted a funeral service in the Presbyterian church of which Mr. Anderson was a member since December 3, 1871, an elder since 1875, and superintendent of its Sunday School for many years. As a Christian Mr. Anderson was full of grace, mercy and truth, ever ready to use talents which God had given him.

The subject of this sketch was born Nov. 29, 1851, a son of David Crawford Anderson, a highly endowed scholar and linguist and one of the most remarkable men the state ever produced.

He is survived by this wife, who was Miss Lucy McCoy before marriage in 1881, a daughter of William McCoy, and two sons Herbert and Frank Jr. In his home he was provident, tender and affectionate. A devoted husband and a kind and indulgent father. In early manhood his great business qualifications were recognized and for a number of years he was assessor in the county, after which sheriff, and after two or three years in the mercantile business he became cashier of the Farmers Bank here, in which capacity he acted until death; though in the past year declining health prevented the usual activity.

Aside from clerical functions he was interested in farming and he owned several fine farms and dealed largely in cattle and other livestock and by keen foresight and energy amassed a fortune, we should say of about a hundred thousand dollars.

Thus another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our older settlers, a solitary woman and two children, a host of relatives and friends to attest how sadly they will miss his council. In temperament he was mild, concilitory and candid: and yet remarkable for his uncompromising firmness. He gained confidence when he seemed least to seek it, a man who united sound sense with strong convictions, and a candid out spoken temper, eminently fitted to mold the rude elements into form and consistency.

At all times, under all circumstances he walked in the well beaten path of righteousness and when full conscious that he was nearing the last of earth, he appeared to be fully impressed with the idea that at the end of time eternity began and that the bright faith which sustained him during those trying hours of suffering would only grow brighter and brighter as he journeyed toward the Infinite, and the final gloom of death be dispelled by the radiance of God's love. Could all live the just and upright life Frank Anderson lived, and die in his trusting faith, death could no longer be called the "King of Terrors" for he inspired no terror there. The dying man and sorrowing family looked forward with the same eye of faith to the brighter future where this temporary separation would end in an eternal reunion.
