James Anderson, Graves County was born May 10, 1839, in Coffee County, Tenn., and is the fifth of fifteen children born to John W. and Sarah (Darnell) Anderson, natives of Tennessee and of Irish and German descent. Peter and Sina Anderson and James and Elizabeth Darnell were the names of subject's grandparents. His father was a soldier in the Mexican war and was also in the Confederate Army; was a teacher from the age of eighteen until forty-four; was elected clerk of the county court of Coffee County before he returned from the Mexican war, and also was engaged in surveying for a land company. James Anderson was reared at Manchester, Tenn. And until thirteen years old, and was then taken to the country; in 1862 he removed to Paris, Ill., remained there seven years blacksmithing and in 1869 returned to middle Tennessee where he farmed four years; then for nearly five years he farmed in Gibson County, and in 1877 came to his present place, where he now owns ninety-two acres of well cultivated land. In August, 1858, he married Sarah J. Waggoner, a native of Knox County, Tenn., and daughter of John and Rebecca (Nelson) Waggoner. His union has been blessed with twelve children, viz.: Mary E. (deceased), Florence, John W., Ada, James, Jacob H., Sarah R., Maggie, Mattie, Theodosia, Lonzo and Rosco, who have received a good education in preference to anything else. Mrs. Anderson is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
