John Y. Andrews
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 15, 1830
Death: Jan. 22, 1843

Note: When I began researching this young man, my only clue was that he was buried beside Sarah H. Bailey, whose stone gave the initials of her husband, her maiden name Andrews, and the initials of her two parents. Piece by piece I was able to put together this bio for John.

John was the second of at least five children born to Lyman H. (b.1806 NY) and Mary J. (b.1803 NY) Andrews who married circa 1827 in New York. John's siblings were Sarah H. (b.1828 NY), Milton (b.1835 NY), Charles (b.1838 NY) and Ellen (b.1842 IN).

The 1930 Census had a Lyman H. Andrews living in Perry, Genesee, New York which seems to fit. Sometime between 1838 and 1842, when daughter Ellen was born, Lyman moved the family to Marshall County, Indiana, where John died the following year at age twelve.

I found the family on the 1850 Census, living in My Division (today the Plymouth area), Marshall Co. where Lyman was making a living as a wagon maker.

On 20 Feb. 1851, John's older sister Sarah H. married Jacob Bailey in Marshall County. They settled in the Plymouth area.

By the 1860 Census, My Division had become West Twp. Lyman was still making wagons, and son Charles had also become a wagon maker. Besides Lyman, Mary J. and their children, there was a 21-year-old girl named Sarah Locum living with the family and making a living as a seamstress.

In 1866, John's younger brother Charles married wife Ellen J., they got a farm in Center Twp.(also part of Plymouth), and started their family. They had four children--Frank M. (b.1868), Mary A. (b.1878), Edith E. (1883), and an unidentified child who was alive but not living at home in 1900.

In 1869, John's younger brother Milton married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Jenkins (b.1849 WI) on 16 Jun. 1869 in Waukesha, Wisconsin. They had at least two children together--Mary (b.1870) and Frank (b.1871). I found them on the 1880 Census living in Oconomowoc, Waukesha Co., WI, where Milton was carrying on the family tradition of wagon making.

I do not know the fate of John's sister Ellen.
