John Demostinie Anders (Andrews) was born about 1823, the second child of John A. Andrews, Sr. and Martha Formby. He immigrated from Alabama to the Republic of Texas in Dec 1840 and was therefore a citizen of the Republic of Texas. He married Nancy Gilleland on 21 Jan 1845 in Montgomery County, Texas. John and Nancy had 13 children. John was seriously wounded in Battle of Val Verde, New Mexico in the Civil War (his brother-in-law Daniel Gilleland, Jr. was killed in the battle). He suffered with arthritis and pain from those injuries later in life (he used morphine and other drugs to deal with the pain). He was Second Sergeant, Company D, Regimental Artillery of Milam and Williamson counties (first called San Andres Light Horse Company and later Texas Mounted Volunteers).

It is believed John died about 1889 either in his son's home near Davilla, Milam, Texas or while on a trip to see relatives in Montgomery County, Texas. A cemetery called Old Caney Cemetery has been mentioned as has Mt. Pleasant Cemetery. The former is an unknown cemetery (in Milam or Montgomery County), and there is no marker for John at the latter.
