Andrew was born in Middlesex County, NJ in either 1744, which agrees with his tombstone, or 1748 based on a record that he was baptized in Christ Church, Shrewsbury, Monmouth County, NJ, 3 Jan 1749, age seven months. He was the son of James and Sarah Dye.

His first wife was Sarah Minor, a daughter of Stephen and Athaliah (Updyke) Minor, who died in PA. Their children were: James, Stephen, John M., Andrew A., Frances, Benjamin, Samuel, Vincent, Rachel, William, and Jany.

His second wife was Ann Lamb Evans, who was born 11 April 1767, and died 7 Jan 1843.

Andrew and his family came to PA in 1771. On 28 March 1780 he was recommended as first lieutenant in the Yohogania Co. militia, but there is no further mention of his position, since by the fall of 1780, Andrew had resettled across the Monongahela on Big Whitely Creek where, where in May 1785, he had warranted to him a tract of land under the title "Sparrows Nest."

During the Revolution he was soldier in the Pennsylvania Line (Penna. Arch. Series VI Vol 3, pp 1367) for which service he received a pension.
