         Council Robert Anderson was the second child of Joe J. Anderson and Laura L. Shepard. He was born near Hawkinsville, Georgia. He was a farmer and large land owner by what accounts I have and is also supposed to have operated a general store in town. He is mostly remembered for having a vicious temper. He was supposed to be a crack shot as well. He was most certainly an intimidating individual. My grandfather, his son, left home at only 14 to get away from him. Pictures in my Georgia cousins' possession show him with dark, sunken eyes, which I'm sure added to the intimidation factor.

         I believe he lost a great deal in the Depression. Shortly after Council's death, Elizabeth Anderson sent my grandfather, her brother, a letter stating that they needed his share of funds to settle the estate or she might find herself in jail.

         Council must have had some redeeming virtues as two minor roads (Anderson Road and Anderson Drive), are supposed to be named for him in Hawkinsville. Anderson Drive intersects with Watson Street, a road named for Council's father-in-law.
