Nelson P. Anderson 

After an Illness of several weeks, Nelson P. Anderson, substantial and highly respected resident of Fern Prairie, died at his home last Monday, Jan. 24th, at the age of 65 years, 7 months and 8 days.  The funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Swank’s chapel, the Rev. H. J. Lane of the Presbyterian church officiating, followed by interment in the Fern Prairie cemetery.

Mr. Anderson was a native of Sweden and during his earlier life years, it is said, he was a sailor on the high seas.  He located here more than thirty years ago when he purchased a ranch property in Fern Prairie.  The intervening years had been continuously devoted to that home development, alternating with other vocations.  Formerly he was employed at a sawmill operated in that vicinity, but for many years he had been employed, working nights, at the local paper mill, seldom taking a vacation period until his health began to break about two years ago.

Surviving family members are his widow, Hannah, two sons and two daughters, to whom is extended the sympathy of their extensive circle of friends.
