Marcus Anderson

Marietta Register, January 2, 1889

Marcus Anderson died at the home of his son, Edward Anderson, of Pneumonia fever, Dec. 27th, '89, in the 81 year of his age.  He was born in County Derry, Ireland, May 2nd, 1809.  He was married to Rebecca Rogers in 1835 and came to the United States in 1837 locating near Philadelphia, Pa., and came to Ohio in 1841 and settled in Washington County where he resided (except eight years spent in Tenn.) until his death.  Ten of his eleven children are still living, who only three months since mourned the loss of their mother.  In 1835 he joined the Presbyterian church.  In 1841 connected himself with the M. E. Church, afterward rejoining the former at Barlow, O.  He was a good citizen, a friend to the church, a faithful Christian.  Friends mourn but not as those who have no hope.  The funeral services, very largely attended, were held at Warren M. E. chapel.
