|Birth: ||Sep. 17, 1734|
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Immigrant son of Johannes "Hans" and Christine (Schug) Gerberich, married Barbara Babb, 1758, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
He was born in Altfeld bei Marktheidenfeld, County of Lowenstein-Wertheim, Bavaria, Germany.
At the very beginning of the Revolution Captain Timothy Green's celebrated Battalion of Hanover Rifles was organized in this section (East Hanover Township, PA), and Andrew enlisted. The Pennsylvania Archives record that he and most of his comrades were captured by the British at the surrender of Fort Washington on the Hudson, Nov. 16, 1776, but were exchanged not long afterward and returned home. During the winter of 1778-1779 he again served in the Revolutionary Army. In the Lancaster County militia rolls occurs the following entry: "Sixth Battalion, Third Company, First Class--Andreas Carvery--served at Middletown." He was in all probability on frontier duty, to guard against possible Indian attacks. An old history of Pennsylvania informs us that a commissary department was established at Middletown during the Revolution, "where the small boats for General Sullivan's army were built, and his troops supplied with provisions and military stores for his expedition against the Six Nations."
