Robert Anderson Came to Crosbyton in the fall of 1922, buying a farm three miles southeast of Crosbyton. They lived in town until he built his home on the farm where they made their first crop in 1923. Bob was born at Brownwood. Then moving to Rising Star, he later married Anna Pearl Harris of Hawley, near Abilene.
To them were born seven children, four sons and three daughters, Lonard, Willie Mae, Opal, Bernie, Carl,Vera and J.D.
Before moving to Crosbyton, they sold their farm at Rule, where the children went to school and grew up. This was in Stonewall Co. The two oldest children married there.
Bernie was the only one to stay on the farm. On June 17, 1925, he married Ada Ellison who was the youngest daughter of Berry and Annie Christine Ellison. Uncle Berry, as he was known, was an early-day settler of Crosbyton, bringing his family from Tennessee.
