Mystery Anderson Man
This old family photo was found at my husband's grandma's house, and we don't know who he is. We think he could be from the Anderson Family. Felix Thomas "Tom" Anderson had 3 brothers, James W. (b. about 1849 in Indiana), Wilford (b. about 1859 in Illionois), and Leroy "Roy" (b. about 1861 in Illinois). Their father was Felix Anderson, b. about 1827 in Indiana, and died between 1865 and 1870, probably in Jasper Co., IL. He married Martha J., she was born around 1829 in Indiana. There were also 3 daughters, Sarah (b. about 1850 in Indiana), Susan (b. about 1852 in Indiana), and Emma (b. 9 Jul 1858, d. 8 Sep 1940). Emma married George F. Richards. The family was in the 1850 census in Jefferson Co., IN and in the 1860 & 1870 censuses both in Jasper Co., IL. Please contact me if you have any information on this photo or the Anderson Family. Thanks!
