Elisha Andrews, eldest son of Stephen, of Glastonbury, and his wife, Sarah Gillett ; record of his birth on the Hartford town books. He lived in East Glastonbury, and succeeded his father as clerk of the school society; he was both mechanic and farmer, as was common in our early history. He married the 9th February, 1726, Ruth Loveland. He was the first of four of the name in as many generations, being great-grand-father of Capt. Elisha, of South Manchester, now, 1867, living at the age of 78. Rev. A. B. Chapin. D. D., in his History of Glastonbury, says, Elisha Andrews, as clerk from 1743 to 1749, had few peculiarities of spelling, and wrote a respectable hand. He died the 29th January, 1750, aged 43 years, 7 months. 19 days. He seems to have been a school-teacher, in 1747.
