    Notes 
    • 1910 US Census, Illinois, Lake, Benton, Clarissa Anderson, 35, single, born UT, father born WI, mother born UT, caretaker rooming house

      In 1910 we find Clarissa Anderson living in Benton Lake, Illinois. Actually she is a "sister" and member of Alexander Dowie's Christian Catholic Appostolic Church of Zion, Illinois. It is a product of the turn of the century ideas of health and religion. The sect did not believe in Doctors and modern medicine but had ideas of purging and eating a good diet. That year Clarissa joined the church and served as a volunteer for quite some time. At her death she was still involved in the church in Portland Oregon and was probably part of a rescue mussion on Burnside street in Portland, Oregon.  She was visited in 1910 by her father Albert who took the train to see her in Zion, Illinois.
