Death of A. J. Andrews

Hon. A.J. Andrews, of Neosho Rapids, this county, died Saturday at his home in that place at 1 o’clock, after a protracted illness, in the seventy-third year of his age. Rev. W. H. Manary, of this city, will preach the funeral sermon tomorrow at 1 o’clock, after which the remains will be buried in Neosho Rapids cemetery under the auspices of the G.A.R., and W.R.C. The deceased was one of Lyon county’s oldest and most highly esteemed citizens, having served his district in the legislature and his country during the war for the Union. He attended the reunion anniversary of the 11th Kansas at this place on the 7th of December last, and felt conscious at the time that it would be the last reunion he would ever attend, except upon the shining shores of the spirit land. He leaves a wife and four children with a limitless circle of friends to mourn his death. All the children are grown and all reside here except on son who is a railroad engineer in Virginia. A kind, indulgent husband and father, a brave soldier and a good citizen has passed away.



Andrew Jackson Andrews was born October 10, 1825, in Richland County, Ohio where he received a common-school education and where he married Julia A. Biggs, December 30, 1855. He came to Kansas in 1858 and settled at Neosho Rapids, in Lyon County, his family joining him in 1859. He enlisted as a member of company C, Eleventh Kansas, in August 1852, and served until the end of the civil war being mustered out August 7, 1865. He was elected to the house of representatives of the legislature of 1868. Mr. Andrews died January 9, 1897. (Transactions of the Kansas State Historical Society 1907-1908, Vol. X, edited by Geo. W.
