Stanley Anderson Died the Hero’s Death on West Front July 15
First Local to Fall in Action
County Wide Memorial Service will be Held at court House Sunday afternoon August 18
Stanley Anderson, son of Mrs. Christina Anderson, about 12 miles east of hartington, honor of being the first Cedar County boy to give his life for his country in the great contest for human freedom now being waged in the old World. Stanley died the death of a true hero, with his face to the enemy, being killed in action on July 15, while assisting in driving the Huns out of the Rems-Noyon salient. A telegram advising his mother of his death was received last Thursday afternoon while she was visiting in Obert. The telegram was from Washington and was a brief, merely stating regret that it was necessary to inform her that her son had been killed in action.
Stanley Anderson was 27 years of age. He left Hartington in the second draft quota last September for Camp Funston where he went in training with an infantry regiment later being transferred to a machine gun company, in the handling of which he proved unusually proficient. He was sent to France early last spring and after a brief term in training was sent to the front. Letters from comrades since that time indicated that he had always conducted himself as a true Christian soldier, performing the task to which he was assigned with enthusiasm. The pleasing disposition which made him popular in civil life made him a general favorite with his comrades in the army.
Cedar County will do honor to the memory of Mr. Anderson at a county memorial service which will be held at the Courthouse at 3 O’Clock on Sunday afternoon, August 18. Rev Jersing Thompson, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church will deliver the address of the day. The service will be open to the public and a large crowd is certain to be present to extend him every honor.
