High priest. Assisted Bishop Seeley in bringing emigrants to Utah. Indian war veteran in the various troubles with the unruly redskins. Settled at Spanish Fork 1857, moved to Fairview 1860.

Warning

Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah characterizes Anderson’s involvment in the Indian wars as dealing with “unruly redskins”. Certainly many native American Indians displaced by both Mormon and non-Mormon settlers throughout the western USA could as easily characterize these settlers as “unruly white-men”.
