Andrew Henry Anderson was born in Germany on May 28, 1882, and died near Whitehorse, Woods-co., Okla., at 6 a.m. on Sunday, June 11, 1905, aged 23 years and 13 days. With his mother he came to America in 1885, settling in Kiowa-co., Kans. Ten years later they moved to Oklahoma where the deceased continued to reside until his death. He lived on a claim which he was improving and preparing for a home.
For several months past deceased had complained of some ailment in the head, his ears being somewhat affected, but it was not until last Saturday that any serious symptoms developed. On that day he became worse and soon lost consciousness. Physicians who were called pronounced the ailment to be an abscess on the brain. Despite the utmost human efforts, death claimed the sufferer early Sunday morning. The body was brought to Coldwater on Monday and laid to rest in the Coldwater cemetery. Funeral services were conducted at the M. E. church by the pastor, Rev. C. E. Williams. A large number of friends showed their regard by their presence at the funeral. A step-father and a mother, Mr. and Mrs. M. Uhl, two sisters, Mrs. W. G. Jarnagin and Miss Mary Anderson, all of this county, and a brother, Stanley Anderson, of Woods-co., survive the deceased, and to them the sympathy of all is extended in their sad bereavement.
