Anderson, John (Fatal accident - 24 Dec 1912) 

John Anderson met with an accident Tuesday morning that resulted in death at 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

Mr. Anderson with Charley Santo and Wallace Waterpool were delivering a piano to the home of H.H. Bryan east of town.  They had the instrument standing lengthwise on the wagon and John and Wallace were steadying it while Santo was driving.  While going along Mill street the front wheel struck a root in the track throwing Mr. Anderson out onto the ground and the piano on top of him.  The edge of the piano struck him across the abdomen.  Santo and Waterpool lifted it off from him and he was assisted to a nearby house and Dr. Frisbie called. 

The doctor made a careful examination and although Mr. Anderson seemed to be suffering severely could find nothing to show that he was dangerously injured.  He was taken to his home and for the first few hours there were no indications that he was fatally hurt and not until about ten minutes before he died was there any great danger felt.  He was then taken suddenly worse and soon passed away. 

The sudden death of Mr. Anderson is a severe blow to his wife and relatives and to his business and personal friends.  Although a young man he was at the head of the John Anderson company, dealers in general merchandise, and had a business reputation that was second to none in the state. - Fairchild Observer
