Alexander Anderson of Fredericton, labourer, bought land in 1845 on the new Needham Street “as laid out by Mark Needham,” and evidently was strong and prosperous until residing in his new abode, where he and three of his children died within a few years.
His wife was Maria Saunders, and the family attended the Kirk. She and her only surviving child, Alexander, remained at their new address adjacent to the famous garden of William Watts. Charles Mills, her second husband, was a gardener.
