I am a subscriber of the ANDERSON county Texas board, not related.

Chicago IL is in Cook county. Canadian Texas is in Hemphill county. Did you post your query to the ANDERSON surname board ? It is always better to post full birth dates and death dates if known. I find no Anderson in SS death record in Hemphill county who was born in 1921.

28 Jan 1924 - 15 Oct 1987
