Among the younger agriculturists of Warren county, Indiana, who have won for themselves reputations for industry, perseverance and sound judgement, none occupies a more enviable position in the esteem of his fellow farmers than James E. Anderson, of Washington township.

Mr. Anderson was born on November 3, 1885, in Warren county, on a farm near Locust Grove, and is the son of James and Margaret Anderson, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. He was reared to the life of a farmer and has had the prescience and good judgment to continue in this line, in which there is a larger degree of independence and more certain returns than any other vocation. He is a careful and conservative man in his business affairs and yet sufficiently progressive to permit of his keeping up with twentieth-century ideas and methods, so that among his fellow citizens he has enjoyed a reputation as a representative farmer of his locality.

In 1907 Mr. Anderson was married to Ethel Woods, the daughter of Fletcher and Harriet (James) Woods. Fletcher Woods, who is a native son and long a representative citizen and enterprising farmer of this county, is now living in Lebanon, Indiana. He is the father of seven children, namely: Mrs. Nellie Watson, Mrs. Minnie Wood, Mrs. Grace Day, Mrs. Ethel Anderson, Russell, Dorothy, DeLoon (deceased). To Mr. and Mrs. Anderson has been born one child, Juanita, who is four years old.

Politically, Mr. Anderson has always been aligned with the Republican party, and has been active in its support. His ability and integrity have been recognized by his fellow citizens, who elected him to the responsible position of township trustee, his administration of the office being characterized by good judgment and sound business principles. Religiously, he is a member of the Christian church, with which society the members of the family are affiliated. In every avenue of life's activites in which he has engaged, Mr. Anderson has faithfully done his best and he has honestly earned all he possesses today, so that he is fairly entitled to the respect that is accorded him throughout the community in which he resides.
