George A. Anderson Sworn In (1926)
The Bee (Danville, Virginia) 6 December 1926 (Page 12)
Col. Anderson Is Sworn In As Clerk of Caswell Court
(Special to the Bee)
Yanceyville, N. C. Dec. 6 (1926) The Caswell county Superior court opened this morning with a heavy docket and with three homicide cases expected to be called. There are a number of other cases and witnesses, defendants and attorneys made up a substantial crowd to attend the court session.
This morning marked the induction into office of George Anderson, as clerk of the court, following his victory at the polls last fall. Mr. Anderson is widely known throughout Caswell county for his administration of the schools during an earlier day. He was at one time in the newspaper business in Danville and is probably one of the best known citizens of Caswell county. Col. Anderson qualified for his new duties this morning and it is expected will make an efficient and business-like clerk of the court.
George Andrew Anderson (1869-1945) was the son of Dr. John Quenton Anderson, M.D. (1820-1893) and Minerva Isabella Rice (1836-1903). On 26 May 1897 he married Mary Elizabeth Slade (1873-1939).
