Age 64y at death.
From a 1919 biography, contributed by Lester Letson:

"During July, 1893, in the Kutner Colony, Garrett Anderson was married to Miss Elizabeth Rice, a native of Newark, N. J., and the only child of James L. Rice, a gas-maker there, who went to Texas and engaged in farming, but on account of three successive failures of crops he moved with his family to Fresno, in 1885, and entered the service of the Fresno Gas Company.

James made gas for the concern and also showed them how to establish their business, and in 1890 he located in Kutner Colony on some raw land. Mrs. Anderson also went to the Hawthorne School, as well as to the school in Temperance Colony.

Mr. Rice died February 16, 1915, and Mrs. Rice passed away in June, 1917. They were very generous and hospitable and assisted many of the early settlers to get a start.

Thirteen children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, and all but two are now living. Josie is Mrs. Davis, of Kutner Colony ; Robert B. is serving in a motor transportation company of the United States Army at Camp Merritt, N. J. ; James S. was in Company K, Thirtieth Infantry, Third Division, serving overseas, and took part in the Battle of Chateau Thierry, France, and on July 28, 1918, was severely wounded by shrapnel and after recovery he returned to the United States and was honorably discharged, April 28, 1919; Marguerite J. is at home and so are Laura P., Ruth, Hester, Sarah, Albert, Garrett and Dorothy."
