When one has lived for 83 years, 69 of which have been as the helpmate in rearing a large family, volumes could be written about that life. Mary Jane Bloomer was born Oct. 20, 1853, in Scott county, Virginia, and departed this life as Mrs. Hiram P. Anderson Sr., on Sept. 4, 1937, aged 83 years, 10 months and 14 days. She was united in marriage to Mr. Anderson on Aug. 26, 1868. This paper carried an account last week of the family celebration commemorating the 69 th wedding anniversary of this aged couple. It was Mrs. Anderson’s illness that prevented the relatives from making the celebration a public affair. Miss Bloomer and Mr. Anderson were married in Virginia. Five children were born to them before they moved to Missouri in 1880, locating near Lindenlure. They made the trip west in a covered wagon and were 11 weeks enroute. Eight more children were born to this unity after they came to Missouri, giving them a family of 13 children, all but two of whom are living. Besides the aged husband, who is now past 90, Mrs. Anderson is survived by 11 children, Mrs. Lizzie Hawkins, Mrs. Cora Monger, H.P. Anderson Jr., and J.B., all of Ozark, C.H. Anderson of RFD 2, Springfield, Dr. P.H. Anderson of Anadarko, Okla., Harvey of Oldfield, Wade of Lindenlure, Mrs. Alice Monger and Mrs. Marie Woods of Sparta, and Mrs. Barbara Thompson of Fresno, Calif. In addition there are 58 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren. Out of 110 direct descendants to the union of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, 99 are living. Until the death of Mrs. Anderson this couple were undoubtedly among the oldest, if not the oldest, married couple in Christian county. They were also about the oldest settlers of the county. Mrs. Anderson was the oldest living member of the Smyrna Baptist church. Funeral services were held Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. at the Roller cemetery under the direction of the Klepper Funeral Home of Ozark. The two children preceding their mother in death were Eppson G. Anderson and Mrs. Virginia Warren.

Those 60 years
To Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Anderson, the community should stop and honor the three score years they have travel life’s road together. Their life and the record of their lives give material over which the community, the state and the nation might ponder for hours in solemn meditation. They stand before the community, living examples of what God hath joined together. They have traveled those sixty years, not over days and weeks and months and years of modern conveniences but they have traveled in a way that started with the things of homespun nature. No doubt their trials and hardships have been many and often were such that tested their most excellent manhood and womanhood - a test that we venture the modern couples of today would seldom fathom together. To the modern generation, Mr. and Mrs. Hiram Anderson stand towering and shining examples of what weeding life should be and how it should end. We pray that God in his infinite Wisdom and Understanding shall watch over this remarkable couple and make their closing days one round of golden dreams, filled with expressed appreciation of what they have meant in this community, this state and this nation.
