Samuel Andrews Family History

Contributor: Pat Created: 2 months ago Updated: 2 months ago

The Samuel Andrews family moved to Rome, North Carolina District, Floyd County, Georgia, in 1851 or early 1852. They had lived in Troup, Butte (Butts) and Macon Counties, Georgia and in Chambers County, Alabama, prior to their move to Floyd County. In 1869 the Andrews relocated to Provo, Utah. The family was comprised of: Samuel Andrews, father, (born: 30 October, 1807 in Burke County, Georgia. Died: October 20, 1882 in Provo, Utah). His father was William Andrews, born 1770 in South Carolina and his mother was Anna Howell, born 1772 in Virginia and she died June, 1861 in Rome, Floyd County, Georgia. The mother was Elizabeth McDeed Andrews, born 24 January, 1811 in Laurens County, South Carolina. She died 9 January, 1891 in Provo, Utah. Her father was Jonathan McDeed, born 1785 in South Carolina and her mother was Rachel Potts, born 1789. Samuel and Elizabeth were married on 30 October 1834 in Troup County, Georgia by R.F. McGehee, Justice of the Peace. Their children were William Jefferson, born on 23 September, 1835 in Troup County, Georgia; Amanda Elizabeth born 6 June, 1838 in Chambers County, Alabama; Martha Frances born 14 January, 1841 in Chambers County, Alabama; James Canada born 28 January, 1844 in Macon County, Georgia; Marietta born 19 November, 1846 in Butts County, Georgia and died 29 February 1848; Lovonia Louisa born 19 January, 1849 in Butts County, Georgia and Edney born 13 October, 1852 in Rome, Floyd County, Georgia. Prior to the outbreak of the War for Southern Independence, the Andrews family lived on a 296 acre farm at the southwest end of Horseleg Mountain about 5 miles outside of downtown Rome. Samuel Andrews was listed as the owner of Lot 264 (160 acres) and part of Lot 263 (136 acres). The Andrews had sold 41-1/2 acres of lot 263 to T.S. Price on June 20, 1859 and 80 acres of lot 290 to Raymond Sanford on January 12, 1854. The 1860 U.S. Census indicates that Samuel Andrews' real estate was valued at $2,100 and the value of his personal estate was $1,500. Samuel Andrews was also listed as the owner of 10 slaves in 1860. Samuel Andrews, is probably the Confederate soldier identified in Kinney's Floyd County Confederate book as a member of Company D, 29th Georgia Infantry. He, then aged 55, is last listed as “on sick list July 29, 1863, in camp near Morton, Mississippi.” However, family history research has not been able to verify Samuel Andrews' Confederate Army service. William Jefferson Andrews mustered in as a private with the “Miller Rifles” Company E (Captain Towers' Company) of the 8th Georgia Infantry, on May 14, 1861. Military records show that he was present at First Manassas in July, 1861 and at the siege of Yorktown in April and May, 1862. He was detailed as a nurse to the General Hospital, Camp Winder (Division 4), Richmond, from May 24, 1862 through February 9, 1863. He participated in the siege of Suffolk, Virginia in April and May 1863 and then was part of the Gettysburg Campaign. William was wounded on July 2, 1863 in the Rose Woods near the Wheatfield at Gettysburg. He took a mini ball in the left leg, fracturing the tibia, and was “captured” by the Union Army on July 5. William stayed at Camp Letterman General Hospital in Gettysburg until October, then transferred to Baltimore, Maryland. He was paroled and sent to City Point, Virginia, and returned to Camp Winder, Richmond, this time as a patient. He was furloughed on December 24, 1863 and did not return to active duty. Although the doctors saved the leg, it caused him pain and trouble the rest of his life. William later married Elizabeth Dianah Smith, on May 29, 1876 in Salt Lake City, Utah. William died on February 19, 1896 in Provo, Utah. In 1855, Amanda Elizabeth Andrews married Henry Hall, who was from St. Clair, Alabama. They had two children, Elizabeth (born: July 4, 1856 in Floyd County), and Martha Frances (born: June 24, 1858 in Shelby, Alabama). According to family records, Henry Hall, a private in Company F, 10th Alabama Infantry, was killed on June 30, 1862, while defending the Confederate capitol of Richmond. Amanda was a hospital nurse for the Confederacy. Martha Frances Andrews married John F. Beasley of Tennessee on November 29, 1861. John Beasley mustered into Company A of the 8th Georgia Infantry in May of 1861. He contracted measles and was on sick leave in Virginia in the summer of 1861, then later joined Company H, 3rd Georgia Cavalry, part of General Joseph Wheeler's forces. John and Martha had three children while living in Floyd County, Georgia and they relocated to Utah in 1869 with the rest of the Andrews family. Family 'rumors' indicate that James Canada Andrews left home and fought with the Union army during the war. His death is listed as either June 22, 1862 or September 22, 1862 at the age of 18. Further research has not been able to identify in which Union regiment he fought. Lovonia Andrews Lott, age 12 at the outbreak of the war, later wrote in a journal: “All the young men from sixteen years of age up to thirty were drafted to go to fight. The women and girls had to help with the farm work. After the crops were gathered, we would have to weave the cloth and make clothes to wear. One time I had made clothes enough for the coming year and the Negro boy that lived at our home stole all my clothes except the ones that I was wearing and sold them. I had to weave more cloth and color it. When I hung it out to dry a whirl wind came and took it out of sight.” The following account is by Joella Lott Baum, a descendant of Lovonia Andrews Lott: “Samuel Andrews was a farmer in Floyd County, Georgia and raised cotton for a livelihood. The people had to weave their own cloth and make their own clothes, as there were no factories. There were all kinds of choice nuts that grew wild, also blackberries and different kinds of small fruit. Tomatoes grew wild. They were called love apples, people thought they were poison. There were plenty of wild turkeys and possums. Grandpa Andrews (Samuel) would make turkey traps and would catch from 1 to 4 turkeys at one time. There was a large river close by their home (the Coosa), it would only take a short time to catch an eel. They were fish, but looked like a large snake. There were many other kinds of choice fish. After the Andrews moved to Utah in 1869, there came a tornado in December, 1869 and blew their old home in Georgia away, took big posts out of the ground and destroyed the place. It turned a neighbor's house around. Samuel Andrews sold the 296-acre farm to J.P. Stevens on September 10, 1869. The Andrews, Hall, and Beasley families moved to Utah via an immigrant wagon train in 1869.” Sources of Information: Family Records Family Bible, in possession of Geraldine Miller, formerly owned by William J.

They are descendants of Lavonia Andrews.. Lavonia Andrews was born 19 January, 1849 in Rome, Georgia. Her father, Samuel Andrews and her mother, Elizabeth McDeed were cotton growers. They owned a large cotton plantation and two negro slaves; a negro boy to help with the farm work and a negro woman to help with the housework and cooking. Samuel Andrews was paid to fight in the Civil War for another man but when the north won, the Confederate money was of no value. In October, 1869, the Mormon Elders came to Rome and converted the Andrews family. They came to Utah the same year with an immigration train. The following year, Lavonia and Isaiah were married. They moved to the River Bottoms where they lived until their deaths; Isaiah in 1923 and Lavonia in 1924.

Life timeline of Elizabeth Andrews

Elizabeth Andrews was born on 24 Jan 1811
Elizabeth Andrews was 15 years old when The Erie Canal opens: Passage from Albany, New York to Lake Erie. The Erie Canal is a canal in New York, United States that is part of the east–west, cross-state route of the New York State Canal System. Originally, it ran 363 miles (584 km) from where Albany meets the Hudson River to where Buffalo meets Lake Erie. It was built to create a navigable water route from New York City and the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. When completed in 1825, it was the second longest canal in the world and greatly affected the development and economy of New York, New York City, and the United States.
Elizabeth Andrews was 21 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Elizabeth Andrews was 29 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Elizabeth Andrews was 49 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Elizabeth Andrews was 58 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Elizabeth Andrews was 67 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Elizabeth Andrews was 77 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
Elizabeth Andrews died on 9 Jan 1891 at the age of 80
