Andrew was born in Missouri and married first Dorothea Ann Stoy on Oct. 8,1871. After her death he married Martha Washington White on Dec. 8, 1891. Andrew died in Chehalis and was buried in the Greenwood Cemetery. There was only a stick marker on the grave and it is long gone. The records for this cemetery burned.
My mother remembered walking out to the graveyard with her father on Sundays, but when I was looking for him it was overgrown some and we never found a marker. The cemetery had grown also from when she was a child and the edge was not the same.
