Perry Anderson, of Bigelow, Kan., ranks among the progressive and successful agriculturists of Marshall county. He is a native of Ohio, born near Bluffton, Hancock county, October 12, 1850, and is a son of William and Jane (Tom) Anderson, the former a native of Ireland and the latter of Scotland. The father was a farmer and followed that occupation until his death, which occurred in September, 1861. Perry Anderson was reared on a farm in Ohio and educated in the public schools of that State. He remained at home until 1873, when he came to Kansas and settled one mile north of Frankfort, where he bought a homestead right. He remained on this place until the spring of 1881. He then traded that farm in part payment for a larger place in Bigelow township, where he now lives. He was engaged in stock raising quite extensively n his original farm, but after locating on his present place went into that business on a larger scale, and also began feeding and shipping cattle. He feeds and ships as high as 200 head a year, and is also an extensive hog raiser. His present farm consists of 380 acres, located along Clear Fork and Vermillion creeks in one of the most fertile sections of northern Kansas. Mr. Anderson married Miss Mary L., daughter of Robert and Martha (Turner) Blair, both natives of Ohio. Robert Blair was a carpenter and was also engaged in farming and stock raising. Mrs. Anderson was born and reared in Ohio, educated in the public schools of Bluffton and Ada, Ohio. After finishing school she taught several terms. To Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have been born five children: Roy; Charles; Susie, who married William Rebb and resides in Marshall county; May, who married O. W. Jones, of Barrett, Marshall county, and Bert, deceased.

Mr. Anderson is a Republican and has served nine years as treasurer of the school board. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson are members of the Presbyterian church. He is one of the substantial citizens of Marshall county and the type of man whose energy and thrift have contributed to the upbuilding of the commonwealth of Kansas.
