Biographical Notes

Hide Details Note: In the 1850 federal census Andrew and Susanna were living in Harrison township where Andrew 70 years was a farmer. He owned his farm which was worth $500.00. His place of birth was Virginia rather than Scotland.

Living with Andrew 70 years, Susanna 60 years and daughter Elizabeth, aged 20, was young Sarah Burnett, 12 years old, who may have been orphaned by the 1848 cholera epidemic.

Andrew died two years later in 1852. In the 1860 census Susanna was living with her son Benson, his wife Martha and their five young children on their farm at Walnut Ridge. She died two years later.

Andrew was one of the founding members of the Baptist society, which was organized in 1833 by the Rev. John Strait, a Baptist minister.

"In 1831 Rev. John Strait, a Baptist minister, preached the Gospel at the houses of different citizens along Clay Lick creek. He was a man who accomplished great good, and was very highly respected in the community. Reverend Strait died at the advanced age of 104 years and 3 months. His habits through life were such that he was quite vigorous in his old age. Upon his one-hundredth birthday he preached a sermon at the McCall school house on Clay Lick, which made a lasting impression on the minds of a large number who assembled to listen to him. His chosen text was, "I am the way." In 1833 he organized a Baptist Society at the residence of John Baster, on Big Bull Skin creek. Among the first members were Abigail Phelps, Ledocia Strait, Martha McCall, Hiram Dewitt, Barney Dewitt, Andrew Kerr...."
