INTERVIEW WITH William Lafayette Andrews, Jr.:

Son John R. Andrews, Jr. was with the fire department or sheriff's department for awhile. His father was in the plumbing business. Eddie Derryberry's father was too.

John R. Andrews, Sr. and this is John R., Jr. The one my age is John R., Jr. They were probably one of Nicholas' brothers. John R., Jr. and I went to school together at Price-Webb for awhile and he worked for the fire department. Price-Webb was the only time I went to school over here. I remember walking to school, we started throwing rocks at something. One of the rocks skipped off something and hit one of us. I'm not sure whether it was I or John R. At the time I was staying up at the Staceys. I guess they were related some way. Margaret Stacey. Those houses are all gone now. My mother was up there visiting I guess. We were walking home together. It hit me and I started bleeding and John R. ran home afraid he'd be in trouble.

Margaret Stacey's brother became pretty wealthy. He lived up in Kentucky. He'd give us a lot of money for the cemetery [Andrews-Liggett]. All of his family is buried up there [Ligette-Andrews] and we never could get another road up there. His parents are…

WLA – Margaret Cannon's son was in law school with me. He was interested in aviation law. He graduated after I did. And that's Elizabeth Derryberry's [Eddy Derryberry's mother] and John R. Andrews; that's the one I played with, and that's her children. She had 4 children.

Margaret Andrews (Cannon):

William L. Andrews, Jr. called her "Cousin Jose May." She had several children, one of whom was J. R. [actually, it appears that J.R. Andrews was her brother, John R. Andrews, Sr's son rather than Margaret's son] William L. Andrews and John R. were close in age and one time while they were walking home from school together in Lewisburg, they were throwing rocks at each other and one went astray and hit John R. and he started crying a little bit. They were close in age, but John'R.'s sister Elizabeth was a little older. Ross Beckham built the septic tank at William L. Andrews' farm in 1950 or so, someone from Murphreesboro come out to help with the septic tank and he had dated Elizabeth. When William L. Andrews was in law school, another boy in law school at Tennessee was a member of their family. He was going into aviation law in Knoxville.

Margaret Stacy is somehow related to William L. Andrews.


The last time W. J. was heard of he was in the State of Arizona. His brother, J. R. Andrews, said that he received letters from W. J. every few years always from some different part of the United States.

There is a W.J.Andrews buried near William Varney Andrews whose wife Lizzie E. Cunningham was born September 28, 1850.
