Today we have a photograph of my 3rd (and 4th) great granduncle Jacob Anders. Jacob was a brother of my 4th great-grandfather John Demostinie Anders and my 3rd great-grandfather James A. Anders, Jr. Jacob and his wife Cyrintha E. Rankin never had any children, so there are no descendants of Jacob to enjoy this photograph. But, the extended family still remembers them.
Jacob Anders was born 14 Feb 1827 in Greene County, Alabama . He married Cyrintha Rankin on 02 Dec 1851 in Montgomery County, Texas . He died on 11 Jun 1909 in Montgomery County, Texas  and was buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, Montgomery County, Texas .
Jacob and Cyrintha were both Citizens of the Republic of Texas.
