    CHARLES F. ANDERSON, who has been a life-long resident of Miami County, Ohio, is the owner of a good farm of eighty acres, located just west of the corporation line of the city of Piqua, in Washington Township, on the Clayton pike. He was born in Spring Creek Township, two miles east of Piqua, November 16, 1856. and is a son of Robert and Elizabeth (Graham) Anderson.

    Robert Anderson was born in Kentucky and was a son of Robert Anderson, who came from Kentucky to Miami County, Ohio. The latter settled on a farm in Spring Creek Township, about three miles east of Piqua, but later sold out and bought farm on the St. Mary's Pike, three miles north of Piqua. He lived there several years, then retired from business and spent the final years of his life in Piqua. Robert Anderson, Jr., was about twenty years of age when his parents moved to this county from Kentucky. He became a farmer of considerable importance and lived on a good farm in Spring Creek Township, on which he resided until his death in 1904. His widow makes her home in Piqua. She was born in that city and is a daughter of John Graham, who owned a grist mill south of Piqua. The marriage of Robert Anderson and Elizabeth Graham resulted in the birth of four children, namely: John F., superintendent of the paper mills at Piqua; Margaret, wife of Louis Koester; Charles F.; and Harriet, who lives with her mother.

    Charles F. Anderson was reared on the farm in Spring Creek Township, and received a good common school education. He has always engaged in agricultural pursuits, and for thirteen years rented the farm across the road from the property he now owns in Washington Township. He purchased his farm in 1906 and has converted it into one of the best improved places in the vicinity. He erected a fine frame house, which he has equipped with a furnace and other modern improvements which tend to add comfort to rural life. Mr. Anderson was united in marriage with Miss Ella Blood, who was born and reared in Piqua and is a daughter of Jeremiah Blood. They have three children, namely: Carrie May, a graduate of Piqua High School and a teacher in the public schools of that city; Walter P.; and Frances L. Religiously, they are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
