    Died in Decatur Co., Indiana on the 19th of December, 1857, Mrs. Mary Anderson, wife of Samuel Anderson, in the 57th year of her age. Mrs. Anderson emigrated from Kentucky with her father, (a distinguished elder in the A. R. Church in its early history) and married shortly after she arrived. Although she and her husband had both been reared by pious parents, yet they did not connect themselves with the church for many years after their marriage; not because they did not have an attachment for the church of their fathers, and a desire to connect themselves with it long before they did, but because neither of them could conscientiously subscribe to the stringent law of the A. R. Church West, upon the vexed subject of slavery. But so soon as they met with a chance of connecting themselves with the A. R. Church under the care of the Southern Synod, they joyfully availed themselves of the opportunity, and had all their children baptized at once, except the eldest who was grown and married. Mrs. Anderson joined the A. R. Church at Clarksburg when it was organized by Rev. G. Gordon, some ten or twelve years ago. [Rev. A. S. Montgomery].
