Biography of George Anderson
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Anderson, Hon. George, was born in Albany county, December 11, 1839, and after learning the carpenter's trade and pursuing it for a few years he embarked in the manufacture of rakes for three years. He then returned to farming for two years when he went into the meat business under the firm name of Anderson & Co. This firm did a large trade and continued for eighteen years, when Mr. Anderson purchased the fine farm he now owns and to which he gives his entire attention outside of his political duties. He is a prominent Republican and was three times president of the village of Castleton and has been supervisor of Schodack for four years. In the fall of 1894 he was elected to the Assembly where a still wider field of usefulness awaits him. His popularity and the confidence of the people in his executive abilities are well illustrated by the fact that he was the first Republican supervisor in Schodack in nineteen years. Mr. Anderson married Elizabeth Requa. They have three children; Frank Anderson, William Anderson, and Etta, now Mrs. Thomas Timmons of Peekskill. Mr. Anderson's parents were Gilbert and Julia (Lawrence) Anderson.
