William Gordon Anderson (22 Mar. 1841-17 Feb. 1910)

William G. Anderson was from Montgomery County, Virginia. His parents were George W. Anderson (1818-1900), a hotel keeper, and his wife, Sarah J. Kent (1819-1897). George Anderson later became a farmer. Young Anderson attended the University of Virginia in session 37 (1860-1861), where he was a medical student. William was a private in the Sons of Liberty, one of the volunteer military units organized by the University students in the years before the Civil War.  During the Civil War, he served as a Major in the 54th Virginia Infantry Regiment, CSA.

According to the 1870 U.S. Census, he continued his medical studies after the Civil War. However, in the 1880 U.S. Census, his profession is given as “clerk in store.” In 1900, no profession is listed, and he is living with his sister and brother-in-law, Nannie and Alford J. Marye.

William G. Anderson never married. He died in Richmond, VA, and is buried with his parents in White Cemetery, Shawsville, Montgomery County, Virginia.
