The Arthur Andrew mystery has finally broken. Arthur Andrews descendants have sold his farm. Although the courthouse in Boone Indiana burned down, a copy of the original deed was made, and on the copy of the deed, Arthur listed the name and date of birth of his father....his father's name was also Arthur Andrews, and he was born in 1762 in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, and was married to Christiana Huggins born in 1765.
HIS father was not Lt. Arthur Andrews born 1753 as some people on ancestry.com claim. Lt. Arthur Andrews was born in 1753 and would have had to have been an 11 year old father for that to be the case...so that shoots holes in the ancestry.com line of descent, which would lead one to believe that ultimately the family originated in Ulster, Ireland.
However, we are one step closer to solving the mystery of Arthur Andrews.
