Contributed by Karen Mitchell.

Colonel Thomas J. Anderson, of Pueblo, was born in Fulton county, Illinois, March 4, 1837, and moved to Iowa at the age of 16 years.  He commenced the practice of law in 1860, and in 1862 entered the United States volunteer army as a first lieutenant.  After the war Colonel Anderson continued the practice of law in Iowa until 1880, when he was attracted to Colorado by the mining excitements, and for several years engaged in the latter business at Leadville and Pitkin.  In May, 1883, he settled in Pueblo and formed a law partnership with ex-Governor W. M. Stone.  Colonel Anderson is a pleasant gentleman, a forcible speaker and a good lawyer.  He is a Democrat in politics. Rocky Mountain News 5-16-1884 - Prominent Men of Pueblo
