Anderson, John C

From Lane Co Oregon

The year was 1869, and John C. Anderson (1835-1905) was in his thirties when he married sixteen-year old Eliza Campbell, daughter of pioneer Robert E. Campbell. The couple had ten children, including Glen G. Anderson, who as a young man logged with oxen on the McKenzie River and later was mayor of Coburg. The family ran a successful hop yard for many years, which provided area residents with work, even during the Great Depression. Part of the original donation claim is still in the family, on Anderson Lane in Springfield.
