    • Notes from James Burren BROWN III
      Nelly Flinn's birth name (surname) was AMIE--- a scots family i believe---but she was adopted out of the family with the entire of her 3 or 4 sisters and brothers at age 4 at the death of her mother. Her adoptive family surname was SMITH. Her adopted mother died after reaching 100 yrs.

      My sister tells me that my mother, Josephine--who never mentioned anything about this to me or my brother--told my sister that John Harvey Kellogg(the older brother of WK Kellogg who formed the Kellogg cereal company in Battle Creek) and about whom the "Road to Wellness" book and movie were biographical sketches---was a regular guest at the Anderson house for many years. Claude, my grandfather was responsible for some of the maintenance at the Kellogg Sanitarium--which later became Percy Jones Hospital during WWII, a place for rehabilitation for injured GIs---including Bob Dole.
