Rich Hill Mining Review, September 1931
John Anderson at Rest, Hume, Missouri
John S. Anderson, age 69, pioneer citizen of this community, died suddenly at his home on East Hume Street Thursday evening of heart trouble. While he had not been in good health for some time, his condition was not considered serious and the news of his death was a shock to the community. Fifteen minutes prior to his death he was sitting on the porch, conversing with his family.
John Anderson was born December 10, 1861, was a native Missourian and an early settler in this community. He was one of the charter members of the Hume Christian Church, he and his first wife [Martha Curl Olive Anderson] being the first to be baptised here. His Christian life, which dates back to 1885, has been one of activity. He was an elder in his church for 25 years and has served as a deacon for a number of years. He was truly a Christian gentleman.
He was married twice, his wives being sisters from the Olive family, Martha Curl Olive and Mary Alice Olive. To these unions were born six children [five from the first and one from the second-four daughters and two sons], one son having preceeded him in death. Both wives, likewise, have gone on before.
There remains to mourn his parting: four daughters, Mrs. Nellie Bellows of San Diego, California, Mrs. Jessie Chadwick of Devon, Kansas, Mrs. Mattie Chadwick of Scott City, Kansas, Mrs. Minnie Remington of Pittsburg, Kansas, Mr. Ira Anderson of Hume, Missouri, and three sisters:
Mrs. Sarah Olive of Yale, Oklahoma, Mrs. Cordelia Davis, of California, Mrs. Bertha Gordon and Mrs. Mary Kritzinger of El Dorado Springs, Missouri, besides a number of other relatives and a host of friends.
He was a good citizen, a kind father, and a good neighbor. At the time of his death, he was 69 years, 8 months, and 17 days-almost the three score years and ten alloted to man.
Funeral services were conducted from the Christian Church Saturday afternoon at 2:30 by the pastor, Rev. I. H. Fuller and internment was made in the family lot in the Hume Cemetery.
