W. S. ANDREWS, farmer, P.O. Adamsville, was born in July, 1816, in this county, and is a son of Joseph and Esther (Snodgrass) Andrews. Joseph Andrews came from the north of Ireland, and settled in East Fallowfield in 1802; had nine children, of whom two are yet living: John, a resident of Wisconsin, and W. S. Our subject was married in 1837, to Jane H., daughter of Hugh B. Andrews, who held the office of Justice of the Peace, under the appointment law, for many years, and which was then the law of the land. His wife was a cousin. Our subject had a family of eight children; the living are: Mary, Margaret, Jane, Esther and James. Mr. Andrews occupies a part of 400 acres of land, which was his father’s or wife’s father’s, near Adamsville. He is of a quiet disposition, and is now retired in good circumstances, having resided here sixty- eight years, and having been one of the leading farmers of the township. His father-in-law was for many years Assessor, and used to make his own returns to Harrisburg on foot, bringing back such things as his friends required. Mr. Andrews has taken a deep interest in education, and has served as School Director.
