David K. Andrews


DAVID K. ANDREWS, the owner of 107 acres of fine land in Cross Creek Township, was born in Salem Township, Jefferson County, Ohio, May 5, 1848 and is a son of William and Jane (McCullough) Andrew.

William Andrews was born in Washington County, Pa., and was a son of John and Nancy Andrews. He followed farming all through his active years and died in Jefferson County. He married Jane McCullough, who was born in Cross Creek Township, this county, a daughter of John and Nancy McCullough. She died also in Cross Creek Township and both she and husband were interred in the cemetery connected with the United Presbyterian Church at Richmond, of which they were members. They were esteemed by all who knew them. They had the following children: Mary, deceased, who was the wife of Stephen Hobson; Margaret, who is now deceased; Kate, who is the wife of Edward Hagen; John, who died in the army during the Civil War; David K.; James, who lives on the old homestead; Anna, who is the widow of William Hause; and Thomas, who lives at Topeka, Kansas.

David K. Andrews attended the common schools near his home and later spent four terms at Richmond College, at Richmond, Ohio. Since he was twenty-two years old he has been engaged in farming, at first with his father, and after the latter's death he operated the home farm until 1884, when he bought his present place from the William Ramsey heirs. He takes much interest in his estate, on which he has spent considerable money in the way of improvements, including the erection of one of the most substantial barns in the township. He carries on general farming, which has brought him very satisfactory financial returns.

In 1882, Mr. Andrews was married to Miss Frances Margaret McCausland, a daughter of George and Mary Jane (Cavitt) McCausland. The parents of Mrs. Andrews came to Jefferson County from Washington County, Pa., and were farming people. Both deceased, they are survived by three children: Theresa Jane, who is the wife of Samuel Kane; Frances Margaret, and George B. To Mr. and Mrs. Andrews seven children have been born--Cora, Mary, Lee, Irma, William, Roy and Laura Eveline. The angel of Death has twice invaded this little circle, Mary and William both being deceased. Mr. Andrews and family are members of the United Presbyterian Church at Richmond. He is a Republican in his political affiliation and has served two terms as road superintendent of his township.
