FROM FRESNO FLATS.
 
Death of W. B. Anderson, an Old Pioneer.
(Special Correspondence of The Republican)
 
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.
