#1-31 Aug., 1904 - Blair Courier - Mrs. Hans Anderson

Mrs. Hans Anderson, who lived with her husband on the old Alex Carter place northwest of Blair, was busy getting dinner last Sunday about noon when she suffered a very severe cerebral hemorrhage. She started to lift a lid from the stove and dropped it, saying her arms felt funny. She was helped to bed at once, but soon became unconscious and died in about ten minutes. Dr. Robinson was called, but she was dead when he arrived twenty minutes later. Mr. Anderson was in Calhoun at the time and was notified of the sad occurrence by telephone. The funeral was held at the home at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon, and interment made in the Blair cemetery. She was but twenty five years of age, and leaves two small children besides her husband to mourn the loss of wife and mother.

#2-31 Aug., 1904 - The Pilot - Anna Elizabeth (Schueler) Anderson

The people of Cuming City were deeply grieved to hear of the sudden death from heart failure of Anna, wife of Hans Anderson, who lives east of the Carter school house. At the time of her death, which occurred at noon Sunday, her husband was visiting relatives at Ft. Calhoun, and one cannot imagine the shock and the grief the sad news brought to the relatives there. Two little girls, under three years of age, mourn the loss of a good mother. Mrs. Anderson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Schueler, highly respected German residents of Ft. Calhoun. Besides the stricken husband, children and parents, she leaves a brother, Albert, and sister, Frieda, at Ft. Calhoun and a married sister, who, with her husband, came up from Atchison, Kansas to attend the funeral. A German Lutheran minister from Omaha conducted the services, and the floral tributes and the many kind friends to attend the funeral showed the esteem in which Mrs. Anderson was held by her friends and neighbors. The relatives here and elsewhere have the sympathy of all.

Calhoun, and grew to womanhood there. She lived only a few short years of married life and her husband and the other relatives have the sympathy of all.
