Obituary William Henry Anderson,
Laddonia, Missouri, 16 Dec 1913
Laddonia Herald, Audrain County, Laddonia, Missouri, 18 December 1913 Wm Henry Anderson Killed. Saturday afternoon about 1:30 one of the saddest accidents that ever occurred in this place happened, in which Henry Anderson lost his life. He was driving a mule team for James Wilkins, and had loaded several bales of hay in a wagon for the purpose of delivering them. He had driven on the scales, Mr. Wilkins made the weight, and Mr. A. struck one of the mules with a line, it shied forcing the other mule off an embankment and they started to run around the scale house, when Mr. Anderson lost his balance falling to the ground, striking on his head. His neck was broken at the skull. He was carried to Dr. McCall's office right across the street, where immediate attention was given. Later he was carried to his home on a cot and lived until 4:30 when death relieved him of his suffering. Mr. Anderson was born near Brisco, Lincoln County, in Oct 1876, being 37 years old at the time of his death. He moved to Audrain County with his parents when a boy and has made this county his home. He was a hard working man, kind to his wife and children and was honest. Funeral services were held at the Christian church Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. E.V. Campbell, after which his body was buried in the city cemetery. A large crowd attended the funeral. He was married to Miss Effie, daughter of Doug White and wife of near Farber in 1890. Mr. Anderson is survived by his aged parents, three brothers, one sister, and a heartbroken wife and six little girls and one little boy. The grief displayed by the little ones and the wife was evidence that he was a good husband and father. He was the main assistant to his father, who went to him at all times for counsel. To the aged parents, wife and dear little children the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community goes out. May God guide their foot steps and look after their wellfare is the prayer of hundreds of men and women of Laddonia. ---- George Anderson of Montgomery, attended the burial of his brother, Henry Anderson, at this place Sunday. ---- Mrs. Doug White and son of near Farber attended the burial of her son-in-law, Henry Anderson at this place Sunday afternoon.
