ANDERSON, ALBERT A. (1836~1915) Albert A. Anderson, a shoemaker for the Confederate Army, was born in Shelby County, Alabama in 1836. Not much is known about his early life. He enlisted in Company C, of the 2nd Arkansas Infantry Battalion, at El Dorado Arkansas, September 23, 1861, and was appointed fourth sergeant. He transferred to Company E of the 3rd Arkansas Infantry, July 18, 1862 and was detailed as shoemaker at Richmond, Virginia on November 21, 1862. At the expiration of his term of service he re-enlisted at Little Rock, Arkansas, March 13, 1863, where he was also again detailed as shoemaker. Albert Anderson was captured at Helena, Arkansas July 4, 1863. There are no military records after this date, but Anderson wrote on his Confederate Pension Application that he was surrendered at the end of the war in Texas.

Although Anderson may have surrendered in Texas, he didn‘t take up residence here until 1867. It‘s uncertain where he lived until 1890 when he moved to Denton, Texas. Albert Anderson was married and we know he had a least one daughter, a Mrs. Anna Wallace, living in Temple, Texas and possibly a son, an S.E. Anderson who lived in Denison, Texas. Anderson made his living as a harness and shoemaker after the war. When he entered the Confederate Men‘s Home on March 22, 1915 he was a widower. His religious preference on the Confederate Home Roster was Presbyterian. Albert Anderson died May 11, 1915 and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery.
