Timaru Herald, 29 August 1911
... ANDERSON - At Napier, on August 16th, 1911, at his son's residence, David Anderson, the dearly beloved father of Mrs George Saunders and Mrs W. B. Andrew, of Pleasant Point; in his 80th years.
...... Not lost, but gone before

Timaru Herald, 29 August 1911
... Old residents of Pleasant Point will remember Mr David Anderson, who carried on business as blacksmith and coachbuilder in the township from some time in the sixties till 1886, when he moved to Napier and later to Dannevirke. News has been received of the death of Mr Anderson a few days ago.
He was a native of Clatt, Aberdeenshire, and had reached the age of 80 years. The local paper states that the late Mr Anderson was a popular townsman. He possessed a fund of humour, and was always ready with a smart retort or witty reply. He took a keen and intelligent interest in all local and political matters, and his death removes a very familiar figure among the old identities of the place.
Deceased is survived by four sons and five daughters. Two of the latter are Mrs G. SAUNDERS and Mrs W. B. ANDREW of Pleasant Point.
The interment took place at Napier on Saturday, where the remains of deceased's wife, who died some years ago, were interred
