Birth: Sep. 2, 1807
Death: Dec. 28, 1887

Abraham Anders was a farmer by occupation. He served for many years as a school director in Worcester Township, being a friend of educational progress and a public-spirited citizen. He was a director of the Bank of Montgomery County at Norristown, later the Montgomery National Bank, for twenty-five years, and held important positions in several other corporations. He was active in business affairs but never aspired to public office, although political positions were frequently tendered him and invariably declined. In politics he was a Republican. In his religious belief he was a Schwenkfelder, like his ancestors. He was a member of that church for more than fifty years prior to his death, and for a number of years served as secretary. He was a man of sound judgement and in every respect a valuable citizen. He died December 28, 1887, at the age of eighty-one years. He married Rebecca Schultz, daughter of George Schultz, the ceremony being performed May 14, 1839. George Schultz died October 29, 1851. Abraham and Rebecca Anders had the following children, seven in all, being five sons and two daughters:
Rev. William S., Joseph S. (died July 1895), Susan (wife of Josiah D. Heebner, of Montgomery County, Pa.), Charles S., Abraham S. (who died Nov. 23, 1862), Mary S. (who married Jeremiah K. Anders) and Amos S.
