“Samuel Anderson was another one of our seniors who had no relatives in Jonestown. I barely remember this handsome man being in our services, but I do note his downcast eyes in a photo taken in Jonestown. This is something I came to interpret as a sign that people were not happy there, and were showing it the only way they could. I hope I'm not reading too much into that. To me his look is significant. In Jonestown, he is noted only as "senior" on the Jobs list, and is absent from Edith Roller's journals. ” - Kathryn Barbour
