    Notes 
    • Thomas Tallman Anderson was in the gold fields in California during the gold rush. Frequent epidemics of sickness generally infested these camps sometimes resulting in fatalities.

      During one of these calamities, the entire camp seemed to be affected resulting in great losses by death. During a trip of the burial squad in picking up the dead, hauling them off to a burial trench like so many animals, Thomas Anderson was pitched into the wagon and started on what was supposed to be his last ride.

      However, when they were unloading the carcasses for burial and bumping their heads over the rough boards in the wagon box and tailgate, the bumping stirred William enough to exhibit some signs of consciousness. This was noticed by some of those in charge and they laid his body aside for further examination. He was taken back to camp for another chance and by such pioneer treatment as they had in camp, was finally restored to life and health.

      This remarkable incident resulted in a treasured family story for his descendants. [3]
