-born in 1824 in New York City of English Irish parentage & came to Clark Co 10 yrs later w/family & watched the growth of Springfield from a tiny village to its present size.
Mrs Anderson's mother b Manchester, England/her father John Anderson in Armah Co, Ireland. Her maternal grandfather came to this country with his oldest dtr & her hus (who) took up a res in Dayton OH. After accompanying them to that place, the gr'fa returned for the others of a large family. Mrs Andersons's mother was 3 mos in crossing the water. Part of the family found homes & business in Paterson NJ, where desc of that branch are still living & others settled in NY. Mrs Andersons parents/mar in St George's Church, NYC, & to that union were born seven chr. Mrs Anderson was the oldest born & all are now deceased.
In 1844, at the age of twenty years, she was mar to James Anderson, born in Greenfield, who d 22 yrs ago this coming Apr.
Note: maiden name: Mrs Andersons family name and that of her husband are the same, although the two families were not related. Mr Anderson came to Springfield with his family when he was about 7 yrs/age, & in those early days knew every one in the "village". He died, he declared, "a stranger". Of the 8 chr born to Jane M and James Anderson, there are four still living -- O.H. ANDERSON, Mrs M.H. BOYD, Mrs Elizabeth FLAGO, & Mrs J.C. MECHLIN (Emma Kate/James Coulter MECHLIN) On the 4 adjoining lots owned by Mr Anderson, 3 facing on South Fountain Ave & 1 on Clark St, houses were built & in these the 4 chr now have homes. The houses have been remodeled since that time, but are still the same structures put up by Mr Anderson years ago, when there were practically no other houses in that vicinity. So added to the list of changes which Mrs Anderson had seen in the city & county, is that of witnessing Fountain Ave grow into the handsome residence district is now is.
Mrs Anderson, the oldest member of St Paul Methodist Episcopal Church, had always in her earlier years, been prominently identified with the city's work in that denomination. From the very inception of the Crusade work in this vicinity, she had been actively connected with that work, and took a very great interest in the 1914 "wet and dry" campaign, the progress of which she watched with close attention. She was one of the founders of the local YMCA which she had seen grow to the splendid influential institution of the present day.
Mrs Anderson was a member of the original board of trustees of the Clark Memorial Home. In 1912, Mrs Anderson, as the oldest member of St Paul Church, burned the mortgage in the presence of a large congregation, when the church was relieved of that incumbrance. Her husband was a member of the first Methodist Chuch ever founded in Springfield. Mrs Anderson had 8 gr'chr & 6 gt'gr'chr in whom she took more than the ordinary interest and pride.
