After Mourning died, John was living with Thomas in 1850 and with Warner in 1860 and 1870.

Mouring is buried with her daughters, Julia Ann and Permelia, along with Permelia's husband, Lorenzso Rathbone,  in Rathbone Cemetery in Hamilton County.  Julia's stone is not dated and broken - the lower portion illegible.

Two biographical sketches about John are available on the Yesteryears of Hamilton County, Illinois website (http: www.carolyar.com/Illinois/HamiltonCounty.htm).  One is by Patrick Anderson and another by Harry Ward.  They detail the following:

John Anderson was born May 10, 1780 on the Little Marrowbone Creek in Henry County, Virginia, and died March 19, 1873 in Hamilton County, Illinois.  His birth date is recorded in the Bible of his youngest sister, Urshula Kief (nee Anderson) now held by the Anderson family of Morganfield, Kentucky.  By 1789 his father, Armstead Anderson, and mother, Urshula Farris Anderson started moving their family west, settling first in Tennessee and then in Kentucky. John and Mourning then went on to Illinois about 1819, followed much of both of their families.  

After settling on lands to the west of McLeansboro, obtained by a warrant of his wife's brother's service in the Black Hawk War,  John continued in the tradition of his carpenter ancestors by building a credible home on land now the fairgrounds west of McLeansboro.  His home was chosen to host the first Hamilton County, Illinois Court meeting.

John died on March 19, 1873.  He had outlived the availability of the old Rathbone family cemetery where Mourning and two of their daughters were buried and was therefore buried in Union Hill/Shedd Cemetery west of McLeansboro.
