Andrew was 17 yrs old at the time of his death. He and his brother John were digging a well. He went down the well and was overcome by the gasses that had built up overnight. His brother John jumped in to save him and also died from the fumes in the well.

Because his father Nicholas had spent nine years as a stonemason in Germany, Nicholas made the headstone for his four boys - John, Andrew, Henry, and Simon. At one time it was the largest headstone in the West Union Cemetery.
