FROM FRESNO FLATS.
Death of W. B. Anderson, an Old Pioneer.
(Special Correspondence of The
FRESNO FLATS, June 14, -- W. B. Anderson, an old resident of
Fresno and Merced counties, died at Grub Gulch, in this county, last Sunday,
of dropsy, at the age of 68.
For the past eight years he had been proprietor of the Grub
Gulch hotel. He was highly respected as a man of honor, and had always been an
active spirit in the development and improvement of that section of the
county, and his good work will long stand as a monument to his memory.
Mr. Anderson was a pioneer, having come here from Kentucky
early in the fifties, and for several years was located at Snelling, Merced
county, in the hotel business, and was one time county clerk of that county.
He leaves a wife and several children, of whom all are grown.
Transcriber's note: The name should be A. B. Anderson
In Tinkham's History of Stanislaus County, p 214 he is listed as County
Clerk in 1862 and also as Recorder and Auditor in 1862. Two terms, but not in
the same chair, but for the same years.
