Y., Jan. 8, 1843, and came to Wisconsin with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Andrews, when a small boy and they resided in Columbia and Richland counties for a time, arriving in Stevens Point in 1857, taking up their residence in the town of Linwood. he served in the Union army for three years and four months, having enlisted in Co. E, 18th Wisconsin Inf., and during the service lost one of his eyes. Upon his return home he was married to Miss Sarah Langton of Plover, who died a few years later as did also their two children. Aug. 23, 1870, he married Miss Genevieve LaMere and to them ten children were born, eight of whom, together with the widow, survive him. On son, James, was killed a couple of years ago by being run down by a train near Rudolph. The surviving children are Mrs. Ruth Goodin of Linwood, Mrs. Clara Shepreau of this city, Mrs. Effie Shaurette of Birchwood, Louis Andrews of Sauk Rapids, Minn., David and Mrs. Sadie Dixon of this city, Mrs. Pearl Horst of Hamilton and Frank Andrews of this city.
