Annie was the second of seven children born to William Ray Keath and his wife, Emily J. Dougherty. She married Frank M. Anderson; a son of Isaac Anderson and his wife, Amy Jane Hoel.

NEWS ARTICLE: Watseka Republican: Watseka (Iroquois County), Illinois; dated September 1956. Excerpt from article honoring Anna (nee Keath) Anderson's 90th birthday: ". . . Mrs. Anderson is exceptionally healthy and active for one of her years. She crochets each day without the aid of glasses, does her own housework, including cooking, and keeps abreast of the times through reading. She occupies an apartment separate from that occupied by her son, Deputy Sheriff Harold Anderson and family. Mrs. Anderson, the former Anna Keath, was born in Chicago, September 04, 1866, a year after the close of the Civil War in which her father, William Keath, had served and had participated in several of the most important battles. The latter had moved his family to Chicago for the purpose of learning the trade of Carpenter and after returning to Woodland, built numerous residences in the village and on farms in the community. The family also lived for short periods of time in Ash Grove, Onarga, and Watseka, residing here when the C & EI rail road was being built. Mrs. Anderson was married December 03, 1884 in Elk Falls, Kansas, another temporary residence of the family, to Frank Anderson, whose death occurred October 25, 1932. She was the mother of nine children, two of whom died in infancy and the death of a son Floyd when he was twenty-four years old. Mrs. Anderson has been a member of the Christian Church for many years, but since the church of that denomination burned at Woodland, she attended the Methodist Church there. Not one person resides in the Woodland community whom Mrs. Anderson knew when she moved there as a girl of twelve years. She well remembers that on the present north and south business street there were rows of grain bins and that grain was elevated through use of a team of horses which furnished the necessary power. There was a duck pond north of the location of the present Anderson home. The Anderson's farmed land southeast of Woodland, now owned by Paul Benner, but retired in 1911. Mrs. Anderson recalls that her father, while a Civil War soldier, marched with General Sherman through Georgia in a project that eventually caused the downfall of the South. She remembers the social side of Woodland when a girl, which included buggy rides behind high stepping horses and sleigh rides during the winter months, and there always appeared to be more snow on the ground than now. . . .
