Their home address in 1917 was 155 Mangels Avenue in San Francisco. George A. Anderson was a "motorman" on the "Street Railroad". Mary Clark Anderson was a Housewife. The attending physician was Joseph Butler, M.D., 435 Mission Street.

From Jim Dalby

"Andy was killed on 11/28/44 shortly after being checked out. I don't believe that he was married as I have a copy of a letter CNAC wrote to his mother after his death. At the time of his death he had been with us only a short time." (NOTE: Jim uses November 28th, but because the following letter says November 30th, we will use November 30th when referring to this accident.)

Here is a copy of that letter to Mrs. Anderson.
(Anybody out there have a better copy they could loan me?)
