    • Note:
      The 1870 census lists John D. Blue's family twice. We assume that they collected the data from him at work and from her at home.

      Blue, Jno 30 M Clerk, store Ohio
      -- Ella 26 F Keeping house Ohio
      -- Ionia 2 F Iowa
      -- Leonard 6/12 M Iowa Feb

      Blue, J. D. 25 M Clerk, Dry Goods Ohio
      -- Ellen A. 24 F Keeping house Ohio
      -- Ionia 2 F Iowa
      -- Leonard 4/12 M Iowa Mar

      We figure that the first entry was taken at the Blue house and that Ella was the source, and the second one is from John D. at work. According to our best information, both John and Ella were nearly 26 at the time. According to the Belle Plaine Biographical directory, Leonard was born in February and would have been 5 months old at the time of the census.

      The census also lists a John Burrows pg 922 17B Sd 5 ED 2 Ward 3. This is probably someone from the other Burrows family.

      Text: Letter from John Anderson to James H. Anderson of Columbus, Ohio.

      Marion, Ohio, Oct. 26, 1886.
      Mr. J. H. Anderson, Columbus, Ohio.

      My Dear Nephew:--

      I now undertake to give you some account of my ancestors. My Great-grandfather, William Anderson, was born in Scotland, in the year 1693 and died in Virginia in 1797. He was a friend of the Stuart dynasty, and joined the standard of Prince James, the Pretender, (as he was styled by some) son of James II, the deposed King of England.

      After the rising in 1715, he fled into England where he tarried awhile, and then made his way in disguise, I am told, to Virginia, where he had relatives. He went up the Potomac river till he came to a beautiful and fertile valley, or bottom, on the North Branch, and here he decided to settle. It has ever since been called the Anderson Bottom, and was afterward included within the boundaries of Hampshire County, Virginia. That was then a wild region, inhabited mainly by Indians, but there were a few French, and probably a few British subjects west of William Anderson's new home.

      He was strong and brave, and helped to protect the frontier settlements from murderous Indian foes. In "Braddock's defeat" (Braddock's engagement with the French and Indians near Fort Duquense) though beaten he fought bravely.

      He was the father of four children, two boys and two girls. One of his sons, William, was killed by the Indians in the mountains near home. One of his daughters married Captain William Henshaw, of Berkley County, Virginia, whose plantation was near Bunker Hill, on Mill Creek.

      I have forgotten the name of the husband of the other daughter, although I have often heard it. (In a subsequent letter he says her name was Sarah and that she married a Mr. Wilkins.)

      As he, William Anderson, was 104 years old at the time of his death he was a little childish, but at 80 he was as strong and active as ever. He brought a large amount of gold from Scotland, or it was afterward sent to him, and he was known to possess a great deal when he died, but after his death it could never be found.

      My father often saw it and believed it had been stolen during his last sickness or put away by him with too much care. He was opposed to the marriage of his daughter to Capt. Henshaw on account of his poverty; but the Captain afterward inherited a fine English fortune--he was an Englishman by birth--and became wealthy and prominent.

      I have forgotten the name of William Anderson's first wife--the mother of his children. The name of his second wife was Barnett, to whom he was married at the age of 80. He was a member of the Protestant Episcopal Church.

      Thomas Anderson, his son, was born in 1733, and died in 1808. He often aided in thwarting the Indians, and in resisting their forays. He fought during the entire Revolution, as an officer, either on the frontier against the Indians, or farther east against the British.

      He was at Yorktown, in command of his Company under Washington, at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis. His highest rank during the Revolution was Captain. He never knew fear, and in fighting the Indians ran some great risks, and made many narrow escapes. I have a distinct recollection of his appearance. He looked like my brother, Thomas James, your father. He was a member of the same church as his father; was an honest man and a good citizen, and like all the family, of whom I have any account, always paid his just debts. He was a true patriot, and had he been more ambitious might have risen higher during the Revolution.

      His wife was a Miss Bruce, of Virginia, by whom he had seven sons and four daughters. The sons were William, James, John, Jonathan, Joseph, Abner, and George. The daughters were Margaret, Rachel, Elizabeth, and Nancy.

      William and Joseph died (soldiers) in the war of 1812. Joseph was a single man, William left a wife, three sons and one daughter. William's sons were Hiram Joseph, and William. The daughter became the wife of my brother Levi.

      John married and settled in southern Indiana, when I was a mere boy, and reared a family of children. Jonathan and Abner never married. George died in his youth. Margaret married Joseph Critchfield, at the old homestead in Virginia; Rachel married William Eagle, who afterward settled in Wayne County, Ohio. Elizabeth married Thomas Eagle, nephew of William Eagle, and they settled in the neighborhood. Nancy never married.

      My father was James Anderson, second son of Capt. Thomas Anderson. He was born February 17th 1768, where his father was born, on the Anderson Bottom, in Hampshire County, Va. He died October 24th, 1844. He entered the Cavalry service as a Second Lieutenant, or more properly speaking, Ensign; aided in putting down the Whisky Insurrection, and afterwards served under Gen. Anthony Wayne, until his (Wayne's) death, in December, 1796. He was a gallant and meritorious officer, and for meritorious service and gallantry was made a Captain.

      I have seen his three commissions, that of Ensign, Lieutenant, and Captain. He was a member of the church of his ancestors until he settled in Ohio, and then became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church simply because there was no Episcopal Church in his neighborhood. He removed to Fairfield County, Ohio in 1806 and settled on his farm there on the 7th day of April the same year.

      He was united in marriage in Virginia to Miss Priscilla House, by whom he had eleven children, ten of whom grew up and married. They were Levi Henshaw, Thomas Jefferson, John and Mahala (born on the old place in Virginia) and Elizabeth, James Madison, Ruth, Rebecca, Hiram and Priscilla, born in Ohio.

      My mother (Priscilla House), the wife of Capt. James Anderson, died on the 7th day of August, 1847, seventy years of age. My father was an upright citizen and a soldier of undaunted courage.

      I was married to Miss Martha Roult, the 20th day of January, 1829, in Hocking County, Ohio, on her father's farm, which was near my father's farm. We had nine children, Francis Marion, Minerva Jane, Charles Wesley, Thomas James, John Milton, Susan Ruth, Levi Roult, Ellen and Margaret.

      You are the last of your father's house, I am old and will soon pass away. I was born the 4th day of March, 1803, at our Ancestral home in Virginia and hence will be 84 on the 4th day of March, next.

      My father's family Bible which I have not in my possession, would give you the dates and items of importance which I do not recall. My brother James, has told you where it can probably be found. My father was a mathematician and engineer, and in addition to his other military duties he superintended the construction of most of Wayne's forts.

      Your affectionate Uncle, John Anderson

      The writer of the above genealogy of the Anderson family died January 3rd, 1888, aged 84 years and 10 months. He first came to Marion, Ohio, in 1826. He then paid a visit to his brother the late Judge T. J. Anderson. While on that visit he went to Upper Sandusky, Ohio, to see the Wyandot Indians. He removed to Marion County and settled on the farm near Marion which he owned at his death.

      Text: <div>
      I have twice been to the family grave site in Belle Plaine. There is one large central stone. On one side (the North?) is carved the name Burrows. On the other side the name Blue is carved above the name Noble. There are three smaller stones to the North? and four in the opposite direction. All of the stones but that of Dr. Noble are of the same style. His is larger and simpler.
      The cemetary records indicate that there are two unmarked graves in the plot--those of Thomas C. Blue and his wife Winnie Taylor Blue. It would appear that neither was cremated. Records indicate that Lowell, Wm H. and Alice were cremated, but Alice's grave is marked with wire as if her body were buried there.
      The stones are arranged thus:
      The inscriptions read:
      Dr. E. P. Noble / 1868 - 1904 / At Rest<br>
      Alice Blue Noble / 1871 Peterson 1962<br>
      Father / John D. Blue / 1844 - 1930<br>
      Mother / Ella A. Blue / 1844 - 1939<br>
      Iona Blue Burrows / 1868 - 1936<br>
      William H. Burrows / 1865 - 1946<br>Lowell A. Burrows / 1891 - 1938<br>
      Iona's grave is also marked by two metal markers--one for the DAR, and one for the PEO.
      We have since buried my grandmother, Grace, in her husband Lowell's plot.</div>

      Belle Plaine Gazette
      Abbrev: Belle Plaine Gazette
      Text: According to a story about her ninety-first birthday which seems to have appeared in the Belle Plaine Gazette:

      Mrs. [J. D.] Blue was born Ella Anderson, a daughter of John and Martha Anderson, at Marion, Ohio. She was graduated from the Marion high school the year the Civil War broke out. It was her ambition to attend college but as her brothers joined the army she was needed on the farm. She taught school for five years before her marriage to J. D. Blue on Aug. 15, 1867. They came immediately to Belle Plaine, which was Mr. Blue's home. In 1878 Mr. Blue opened a store which he operated until 1893 when the Belle Plaine fire swept away the store and contents. After this, Mr. Blue went into the insurance business which he followed until his death in 1930.
