John William Anderson

June 24, 1826 - November 11, 1902

Son of Mary "Polly" Anderson and Unknown
Husband of Sarah Jane Rhodes Anderson (1826-1873)

The uniform that John William Anderson is wearing is pre-Civil War U.S. Cavalry, and that of an officer (according to sources at the Civil War Museum in Richmond, Virginia). Thus far, however, no record of his military service has been found.

If you look closely at the picture, it appears that there is some sort of wound over his eye....
