Notes for DORAH SUDDATH:  Noted on the Cary Anderson family group sheets is that Dorah died in childbirth.  The child must have died also because there is no other mention of it.  At the time I took a photo of her tombstone - because it said wife of J.

Notes for HUNTER ANDERSON:  Hunter was about 5 years old when John and Myrtle moved to Dinuba, CA and about 9 years old when they returned to KY.  Hunter was about 5'7" tall and had a full head of salt and pepper hair. He had a thing about horses and had at least one all his life no matter where he lived.  He was a stubborn man - I remember one argument in particular when I was trying to convince him that you could see land from an airplane.  He said all you could see were clouds and no amount of talking ever changed his mind.  At some point he and Clara lived in Los Angeles, CA; Michigan; and finally KY again.  After Clara died, Hunter went back to Michigan and married Mildred Brundage.  They then moved to Holiday, FL, where he died.  He was cremated in FL and his ashes returned to Logan Co. for burial.

He named their farm near Lewisburg "Mocking Bird Hill."  When we were kids, we used to spend a couple weeks every summer there and I remember the house, the shed in back, and the steep hill leading down to the road.  When I was last there, the house is gone and the shed is decayed and caving in.  The hill didn't seem nearly as steep as it did back then.  Burial: Fitzhugh Cemetery, Logan Co., KY

Notes for CLARA FRANCES KNIGHT:  Clara was about 5'5" and "grandmotherly" (full bodied).  She was always doing something in the kitchen - cooking, cleaning up, etc.  She was an avid wrestling fan and believed that nothing about it was faked.  She and Hunter were visiting our family when she had a heart attack.  She was returned to Lewisburg, KY for her funeral and burial.
