Carl H Anderson is associated with his brother, Clarence R Anderson, in the conduct of a general merchantile establishment at Ogden and has won gratifying and merited success in this conection. His birth occurred in Marcy township, Boone county, Iowa, on January 1,1874, his parents being Charles and Sarah ( Carlson) Anderson, who are mentioned at greater length on another page of this work in connection with the sketch of Clarence R Anderson.
Carl H Anderson was reared and educated in this county, pursuing his studies in the district schools. He remained on the home farm with his parents until twenty-five years of age and then came to Ogden, where he was employed as clerk for three years. On the expiration of that period he went ot Boone and there clerked for a year in the service of H T Cook, a clothing merchant. Subsequently he returned to Ogden and embarked in the mercantile business of his own account, having thus remained a factor in the commercial circles of the town to the present time. In August 1913, he was joined by his brother, Clarence R Anderson and the firm has since been known as Anderson Brothers. They erected a modern two story brick building on the main street and occupy nearly all of the structure, carrying an extensive stock of merchandise. A liberal patronage is accorded them for they have won an envialble reputation as reliable, up to date merchants and enjoy the confidence of the public in unusual degree.
In October 1901, Mr Anderson was united in marriage to Miss Hannah Bergstrom, a daughter of John and Hannah Bergstrom, natives of Sweden, who emigraed to America and located in Boone county, Iowa in 1868. The father operated a farm here until about 1911 and has since lived retired in Ogden. Mr and Mrs Anderson have six children as follows: Luella, eleven years old, Bessemer and Donald, who are nine and seven years of age respectively, Melvin, five years old, Helen who is four yeras old and Russell who is two years of age. Mr Anderson is a republican in his political views, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Swedish Mission. He has always remained within the borders of Boone county and that his life has ever been upright and honorable is indicated in the fact that the associates of his boyhood and youth are still numbered among his stanch friends and admirers.
