†††††† The above records of the Andrews family are far from complete.We would welcome accurate, additional information and shall be glad to publish it from time to time.


†††††† We believe that our readers will appreciate knowing something of their line of descent and that every person ought to have pride enough in his or her ancestry to be able to trace the descent of the family back through at least three or four generations.
