      John was a merchant of East India and was in India at the time of the Mutiny [The Indian Mutiny was in 1857/8, Joseph died in 1850]

      John is buried in Simla, India. The Andersons had four children.

      A grandson, Sir George Anderson, graduated from Oxford with honours in Modern History. He went to India as Professor of History at Elphinstone College, Bombay, and was associated with Indian educational affairs.

      However, marriage record found in 2015 indicates his name was JOSEPH and not John
