ANDERSON, BOYD, FLAGO, MECHLIN Name of Newspaper is Daily News, Springfield, OH on Thursday, March 11, 1915

The funeral of Mrs Jane ANDERSON, aged 90 years, who died at her home, 527 South Fountain Ave, Wednesday morning following a short illness, will be held at the residence Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The services will be conducted by the Rev Willis A Cooper, pastor of the St Paul Methodist Church of which Mrs Anderson was a life long and the oldest member. The burial will be made in Ferncliff Cemetery.
She was born in 1824 in New York City of English Irish parentage and came to Clark County ten years later with her family and watched the growth of Springfield from a tiny village to its present size.
Mrs Anderson's mother was born in Manchester, England, and her father, John Anderson, in Armah County, Ireland. Her maternal grandfather came to this country with his oldest daughter and her husband, the son-in-law and daughter taking up a residence in Dayton, Ohio. After accompanying them to that place, the grandfather returned for the others of a large family. Mrs Andersons's mother was three months in crossing the water. Part of the family found homes and business in Paterson, NJ, where descendants of that branch are still living, and others settled in New York. Mrs Andersons parents were married in St George's Church, New York City, and to that union were born seven children. Mrs Anderson was the oldest born and all are now deceased.
In 1844, at the age of twenty years, she was married to James Anderson, born in Greenfield, who died twenty-two years ago this coming April. Mrs Andersons family name and that of her husband are the same, although the two families were not related. Mr Anderson came to Springfield with his family when he was about seven years of age, and in those early days knew every one in the "village". He died, he declared, "a stranger". Of the eight children born to Jane M and James Anderson, there are four still living -- O.H. ANDERSON, Mrs M.H. BOYD, Mrs Elizabeth FLAGO, and Mrs J.C. MECHLIN. On the four adjoining lots owned by Mr Anderson, three facing on South Fountain Avenue and one on Clark Street, houses were built and in these the four children now have homes. The houses have been remodeled since that time, but are still the same structures put up by Mr Anderson years ago, when there were practically no other houses in that vicinity. So added to the list of changes which Mrs Anderson had seen in the city and county, is that of witnessing Fountain Avenue grow into the handsome residence district is now is.
Mrs Anderson, the oldest member of St Paul Methodist Episcopal Church, had always in her earlier years, been prominently identified with the city's work in that denomination. From the very inception of the Crusade work in this vicinity, she had been actively connected with that work, and took a very great interest in the 1914 "wet and dry" campaign, the progress of which she watched with close attention. She was one of the founders of the local YMCA which she had seen grow to the splendid influential institution of the present day.
Mrs Anderson was a member of the original board of trustees of the Clark Memorial Home. In 1912, Mrs Anderson, as the oldest member of St Paul Church, burned the mortgage in the presence of a large congregation, when the church was relieved of that incumbrance. Her husband was a member of the first Methodist Chuch ever founded in Springfield. Mrs Anderson had eight grandchildren and six great grandchildren, in whom she took more than the ordinary interest and pride.
