J M Anderson
Born in Earlsferry in 1882, James McKay Anderson began his career as a mason and came to professional golf relatively late. Sadly his career and life were snuffed out by the war.
He first married, 1 Nov 1901, Helen Gerard Dunn from St Monans at his family home (Glencoe Villa) and was described as a journeyman mason. By the time of his second marriage, after Helenís death, to Elizabeth Paterson Paisley in Perth in 1916 he was still described as journeyman mason although he had enlisted and was serving as a private in the 2/6th Bn Black Watch. In between the two marriages he is listed in the 1911 census as a golf professional living with Helen and a ten year old son at the Lanark Golf Club House. From Lanark he played in the 1913 Scottish Professional £400 Tournament, a qualifier for the News of the World final.
He died from his wounds on the Somme on 12 August 1918 and is buried in Roisel Communal Cemetery Extension in the Somme. He is also commemorated on the Elie War Memorial
