David P. Anderson, the well known tombstone man, died at his residence about town, last Sunday, and was buried at Woodland on Tuesday. Mr. Anderson has been in the tombstone business in Ironton for thirty years, and during all that time has been an industrious, honored citizen. The death of such men as David Anderson is a loss to any community. He was 53 years old.
