|Birth: ||Nov. 28, 1853|
Ella appears to have been the youngest of seven children born to Amos and Lydia (Hawkes) Varney. Her father was a brick mason, who lived in Brunswick, Maine. Ella's parents are buried at the Friend's cemetery in Durham, Maine, along many members of the Varney family. The Leeds Quaker church was a mission church of the Durham church. The Leeds church disbanded in the mid 1800s, and the building was torn down in 1869. Some members went back to the Durham church, including Ella's father-in-law Freeman Andrews.
Ella married Charles F. Andrews in Lewiston on May 4, 1872. Charles's father Freeman was in business with Ella's older brother John in a venture called "Varney & Andrews," and operated a large boarding house with more than 60 residents. In 1880 Charles and Ella lived in the boarding house, and his profession was listed as "boarding master."
It does not appear that Charles and Ella had any children.
Charles's widowed mother Elvira died in Boston in 1892. Her death record listed her residence as 211 Brighton Ave. City directories showed that Charles lived at that residence that year. Ella's death record was not found, but presumably she died in Massachusetts.
Charles remarried to Bertha S. Adams in New Hampshire in 1901. He subsequently lived in Rhode Island and Connecticut where he worked as a farmer. Charles and Bertha had a daughter they named Ella Bertha Andrews.
