Hatie was a brunette with gray eyes and coal black hair. Being overweight, her brothers nicknamed her ‘Dump’, which she hated; but she remained ‘Dump’ to her brothers until she died. Addie and Hatie rented a little house in Lusk near Harriet's family, on top of a hill. She kept the house spotless and every spring she moved the furniture outside and cleaned and aired the house. Hatie planted and tended a huge garden to can food for the winter. She kept a cow, which she milked to make butter to sell, and they always seemed to have a little money from the butter and eggs. She raised hundreds of chickens for eating and selling. Every Saturday they would load the wagon and drive seven miles to Golconda where Hatie exchanged her butter and eggs for other food or a due bill in exchange. Addie was five feet nine inches tall, blue eyes and brown hair with a pleasant personality. He loved people and had many friends. He farmed and doctored sick cows and horses in the community. He enjoyed trading horses and had a fine reputation as a natural veterinarian, without license to practice. He raised just enough hay to feed their animals, usually keeping a cow and two horses. They kept the horses to pull the wagon when they went to town. After Addie's mother died, they decided to move to Stonefort IL where his sister, Rosnia Wilson, lived with her family. Soon after their daughter, Mabel, married, Addie and Hatie moved to Carrier Mills, where Addie set up a blacksmith shop in the barn behind their house. There was a worldwide epidemic of Spanish influenza in 1918-19 when 500,000 people died in the U. S. Hatie had gone to East St. Louis, in 1919, to nurse Mabel’s family through the epidemic. Then the following year, she contacted the flu and died. Born to them were:

( MABEL CLAIR ANDERSON born January 27, 1894 Lusk, Pope, IL; was raised as an only child, since her brother, Elmer, had died in infancy.

Pleasant Valley School was down in the valley about a mile from Mabel's house and she walked down the hill over huge rocks and through dense trees, which they called the bluff. The school was one room with double seats, heated by a large stove in winter, with grades one through eight. An older Bonnel neighbor girl took a ‘fancy’ to Mabel and begged permission from the teacher to bring Mabel to school when she was only four years old. No one could keep her away from school after that and she always cried on the last day. Mabel was about 12 years old when her parents moved to Stonefort IL; she went through high school in Stonefort and graduated, 1910, as valedictorian in her class of seven. Mabel taught first and second grades in Big Muddy IL school for three years before she married March 22, 1914 at Stonefort IL, Floyd H.

( CHLOE (CLOE) CANFIELD (BNNS-L6) born December 20, 1748 Ridgefield, Fairfield, CT and died after 1800 Ontario, Canada; married c1766 at Arlington/Manchester VT, Samuel Rose, Jr. (2869-B6) [son of Samuel & Sarah] born February 17, 1744/45 Amenia, Dutchess, NY and died 1789 St John, Quebec, Canada. Samuel was a United Empire Loyalist (or traitor, or maybe, an English Sympathizer, depending on your point of view) and fled to Canada. He was an Army storekeeper and spy for the British Army during the Revolution. All of the children after 1777 were born in a refugee camp, probably in Quebec. All of his property was lost to the rebels in the US. In the area that was then known as the New Hampshire Grants, but is now in Vermont, Samuel Rose, formerly of Amenia (Nine Partners) NY, built the first log house in 1764, in the southwestern corner of the Township of Bennington. In 1769, he also built the first framed house in the settlement. This was a very turbulent period as, at the time, the area was claimed by two Royal Provinces - New Hampshire and New York. The Governor of New York declared all New Hampshire grants null and void and began regranting of a reign of influential land-grabbers, which included some of the officials of the province. New Hampshire declined to defend the titles it had granted. In 1767, the Bennington settlers sent an envoy to London. The King ordered a stay of proceedings until he could determine the rights of the matter. New York ignored the decree. The first rumbling of the storm were heard in October of 1769, when officers from Albany attempted to survey new lines near Bennington. There followed various events - such as confiscation of lands - leading to the formation of the ‘Green Mountain Boys’ and the events leading to the American Revolution. A notable confiscation was that of the Rose Family in the southwestern part of town. Samuel had led the original group of settlers. Some of his sons turned Loyalist. According to local legend, Samuel had organized the Tory party just before the Bennington Campaign (August, 1777). This estate was confiscated in September 1777. The family left Bennington in 1778. Family was refugee camp in Quebec until they received a land grant of 200 acres at Edwardsburg on the St. Lawrence River. Born to them were:
