the tite Sidney S. Kobinson. Mr. and
Mrs. Anthony never had any child
ren, hut have reared and educated
eleven clildrcn of others. From 18515
to 18151 Mr. Anthony was a clerk in
the house of represenlatives during
the sessions of the legislature, and i:s
the fall of the last meutionea ycui,
he joined Gen. Pierce's command

camned on Sac river, in St. Clair
county. AImiU December 22, 1S(1,

last mentioned place, Mr. Anthony,
at the solicitation of Colonel Ajiplc

maincd a short time, after which he
went north of the Missouri river. Af
ter experiencing many vicissitudes he
came Iiack to Versailles. February (5,
18G5. To put it in hiown language,
he"weutout in 1mI worthaboutgl-v

cents." He always took an active
part in all public enterprises, and in
political affairs of the state. He was

ture in 1870, was a delegate to the
National convention at St. Louis that
