Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen 24 Dec 1903 Campbellsville "Scribbler"
Although the sad death of Cornelius Anderson has already been noted in the Citizen, yet it is my duty as correspondent to say something regard to this shocking accident and the sudden death of this good man. He and his two sons were getting wood on a steep hillside. The tree after being cut down gave a sudden bound and a limb struck Mr. Anderson on the back of the head. He was carried to his home on a litter and medical aid immediately summoned but nothing could be done. About 24 hours after the accident he expired. His remains were carried to Moriah for interment where Revs. Rice and Rabman officiated in the funeral services. He leaves a wife, four daughters and two sons besides a number of other relatives to mourn his loss. Another member of the Salem church and Sunday School is gone to his reward.
