Christopher Anderson Bio
--Portrait and Biographical Record of Ford County, Illinois. 1892.
He lived at the corner of Maple and Green. This can't be true as Maple and Green run parallel. Entered into partnership with Montelius and Campbell in 1872 when there were only 4 stores and 8 homes in Roberts. He then purchased banking business of J. B. Meserve. Tile Pit.
Jean Fox commented on the Roberts Illinois History Group page that the Anderson family home is the large home across from the Fritchley home in Roberts. The home no longer is standing. It also once was a hotel/motel with small cabins behind the home to rent. I obtained this photo from the Fritchley family. This is the corner of South Street and Walnut Street.
