Anderson, Theodore A. (History - 1862)


Janet Schwarze




THEODORE A. ANDERSON, a general merchant of Greenwood, was born near Taylor's Station, Jackson County, Wisconsin, November 20, 1862, the son of Knud Anderson, a native of Norway, but now of Hemlock, Clark County, Wisconsin. He came with his parents to the United States when fifteen years of age, and settled at Racine, Wisconsin. He was a pioneer of Jackson County, having settled among Indians and wild animals. He removed to this county in 1870, settling in Beaver Township, Clark County, in the thick of the woods.

Theodore, our subject, worked in the woods and saw-mills several years, and also in driving logs in Black River. He came to Greenwood in 1881, where he clerked in a store seven years. In 1888 he engaged in business for himself at Hemlock, but in May, 1890, removed his stock of goods to Greenwood, where he carries a full line of groceries, dry goods, boots, shoes, hats, caps, etc. He has a capital stock of $2,000, his annual sales amounting to $6,000, which is rapidly increasing.

Mr. Anderson was married July 1, 1886, to Mary Francis, daughter of John Francis, of this township. They have one child, George M., born March 25, 1887. Mr. Anderson was School Treasurer of Warner Township one year, is a Republican politically, and an enterprising, public-spirited and liberal citizen, and deserves a good patronage from the public.
