Obituary: Hiram Anderson
10 May 1889 - 12 Jun 1964

With much sadness and sorrow in our hearts, and a great loneliness in our home, we will try with the help of our Lord to write an obituary of a beloved husband and father, Brother Hiram Anderson. He was born May 10, 1889 in Pike County, Kentucky, and left the world June 12, 1964, making his stay on earth 75 years, 1 month and 2 days. He was the son of the late Joseph and Rachel Anderson. He married Annie Tackett, December 21, 1911 in Pike County, Kentucky, To Hiram and Annie 12 children, two infant boys preceded him in death.

Left to mourn his loss is a lonely widow Annie Anderson, Ashcamp, Kentucky. Four sons, Edgar Anderson of Bowling Green, OH, Cecial Anderson, Maxwell Anderson, Nolen Anderson of MI. Six daughters, Elise Hudson of Chicago, IL, June Sanders of Ashcamp, KY, Viola Mullins, Esther Reece, Ethel Brock, Clara Gilliam all of MI. Two brothers, seven sisters and a host of friends. 52 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren all who loved him so much. He joined the Old Regular Baptist Church, second Saturday of October 1951, having his fellowship in the Hylton Church. September 1953, he was ordained a deacon, he served his brother sand sisters humbly and was loved by all. He would counsel his children, brothers and sisters to love one another, for with love and kindness we draw closer to God and lets all pray together. His loving and faithful wife helped and encouraged him in his work.

In his hour of suffering with the dreadful disease cancer, she was always there, hiding her tears and heartbreak trying to help him bear his pain. His faith never faltered, he said he was ready to go, and I believe he is resting with God. Children you can go to your father, but he can't come to you. You are scattered over this land of his and sorrow but God is there too. Lets all go home to see him together. Written by his lonely widow Annie and children. Source

Obituary: Annie Tackett Anderson
18 Feb 1895 - 13 Apr 1977

Annie Tackett Anderson born February 18, 1895, in Rock House Fork of Caney Creek departed this life April 13, 1977 at the age of 82 years 1month and 25 days. She was the daughter of James and Mary Ann Martin Tackett. Her husband Hiram Anderson preceded her in death June 12, 1964. He died in Ann Arbor, MI. Also two infant sons, Virgil and Noble died in infancy and Joseph Cecil died March 28, 1971 of a heart attack.

She leaves to mourn her passing three sons, James Edgar of Bowling Green, OH, Thomas Maxwell and Nolen both of MI. Six daughters, Elise Husdon, June Sanders of Ashcamp, Kentucky, Viola Mullins, Esther Reece, Ethel Brock all of MI, Clara Baker of OK. Two sisters, Gracie Little and Virgie Hamilton, 49 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

Annie was blessed with a long useful life. She was a loving mother, a good homemaker, a splendid wife for over 53 years and a kind and thoughtful neighbor. Hiram and Annie never turned away a stranger that needed food or shelter nor a child. Annie had a winsome smile even though she didn't talk too much. A pleasing personality which won her a large circle of friends. For over 20 years she belonged to and was a member of Hylton Regular Baptist Church and she loved to refresh her soul by worshiping in God's house. Her faith and her Christian charter was reflected in her daily living.

Her love and devotion to her family cannot be measured. She has left a portion of herself in each of them and many other lives have been made richer and fuller because she passed their way. Her great mother heart is reflected in the following lines. She always leaned to watch for us. anxious if we were late in winter by the window, in summer by the gate. Her thoughts were all so full of us she never could forget. And so I think that where she is, she must be watching yet. Waiting till we come home, anxious if we are late. Watching from Heavens window, leaning from Heavens gate.
