ANDREW MCCARTNEY, Born 1804, In Virginia, Came first to Jay County in 1837. He has been married several times, Once and the last time , to John Key's sister. He had had a large family, was a rough, harsh, cruel man, with whom no one could live in peace. He would boast of his scrapes and exploits, and in fact, would readily find and plunge into enough of them to answer to any five ordinary men.
HISTORY OF RANDOLPH COUNTY "By Tucker" 1882 Pg. 419
ANDREW McCARTNEY was born in Virginia of Tennessee, of Irish descent. He is said ( how truly we do not know) to have been the father of twenty-seven children; was in the war of the rebellion, though old enough to have been exempt years before, belonging to the Eighty-Fourth Indiana Regiment, and serving from August 21,1862, to Febuary 27,1863.
Mr. McCartney is said to be a jovial and eccentric old man, and to have a strange and eventful history, having resided in many places and been married several times. His last marriage was in Ward Township, to a lady who is the daughter of Andrew Key, an early pioneer of the Mississinewa region from the state of Tennessee, and a sister to John Key, a prominent resident of that township.
Old Mr Key and his wife ar both dead, and Mr McCartney and his wife occupy the old Key homestead. Andrew Key and his wife were both burried at the Prospect Graveyard, but no tombstones have been place at their graves.
Mr. McCartney, true to his life-long adventurous instinct, has left his last wife, who is said not to be grieved above measure at her loss, and found for himself a residence in some other locality.
