Death of Robert Anderson

Robert Anderson, a well known citizen of near Aullville, was killed Monday by an accident at a defective bridge near his home. His horse became frightened while he was crossing the bridge and backed the buggy containing Mr. Anderson and his wife over into the ravine. The buggy fell on him breaking many bones and injuring him internally He lived about two hours.

Mr. Anderson was a son of Col. Oliver Anderson, one of the early and most prominent citizens of Lexington, Mo.. He built and lived in the house now the home of Judge Tilton Davis. There were eight children,--four sons, William, Joe, Robert and Jack, and four daughters of whom Mrs. Kate Akers, of Lexington, Kentucky, and Mrs. Taylor, of Higginsville, are living. Mrs. H.H. Gratz and Mrs. Johns are dead.

Robert Anderson was arrested during the war and banished to Illinois. After the war was over he returned to Lexington, and later with brother Jack he went to Idaho where he engaged in the banking business. About ten years ago he returned to this county to take possession of a large body of land which he had come into possession of. He was a man of wealth and general culture.

Mr. Anderson was owner of the old Shelby place near Aullville, where he has been living for the past ten years. He and his wife were both Kentuckians, and the body will be taken to their old home for interment (in Lexington, KY). Mrs. Anderson was a Mrs. Jones and was living in St. Paul at the time of their marriage.

Only about a month ago his brother Jack and his brother-in-law H.H. Gratz were here on a visit with him. Both had returned home when the news of his sad death was transmitted to them. Thought seventy-two years of age, Mr. Anderson was a vigorous man and might well be thought a man of sixty.
