Andrew was the son of Fredrick Iaac and Eleanor Livingston. He was born in Hampshire Co., Virginia, which is now part of West Virginia.

Andrew made a settlement on a tract of 400 acres of land on Buffalo Creek in 1774 near present Fairmont, Monongalia Co. (now Marion Co.), West Virginia.

During the American Revolution, Andrew served as a Private in the Virginia Troops: In 1777, six months under Capt. Owen Davy and Col. Zachus Morgan and Col. John Evans, and was out against the Indians in the northwest. He also served two months under Capt. Jacob Prickett at Scotts Hill; and 2 months under Capt. Warman at Harrison's Fort. (Pension Claim S-32336)

Andrew was married twice. First he wed Mary Bayles in 1783 in Ice's Ferry, Monongalia Co., (W) VA, daughter of Jesse Bayles and Margaret Monraine. She was born November 06, 1763 in Frederick Co., Virginia, and died June 17, 1822 in Monongalia Co., (W) VA. Together they had six children:

Jesse
Abraham
Elizabeth
Frederick
Mary
Andrew, Jr.

After the death of Mary, he wed Sarah Ann (Hudson) Fleming on January 18, 1824 in Monongalia Co., (W) VA. It is unknown where or when Sarah died. Andrew and Sarah had no children together.

In 1838 he went to Morgantown, Morgan Co., Indiana where he served as sheriff for two years.

From Indiana Courier, New Castle, Henry Co., IN March 18, 1848: "Died in Prarie Township on the 14 [of March]., Andrew Ice, Sen. in the 92d year of age. In 1838 he went to Morgantown and was sheriff for two years. He took an active part in one Revolutionary struggle and and lived to enjoy the blessings of a Republican form of government obtained by the Patriots of that day--till nearly all of his compatriots in arms have been called to sleep the sleep of death. At his request he was buried in honors of war."

Andrew was originally buried with military honors in a small graveyard on the farm of his son, Frederick Ice. About 1895, the Paul Revere Chapter of the D.A.R. in Muncie, Indiana, had his body removed to the cemetery at Mt. Summit, Indiana.
