Biography

Andrew was born June 1, 1878 in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States. His parents were Edward P Connolly and Rosana (Lynch) Connolly.[1]

In 1880 Andrew (age 2) lived in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with his parents (both age 24). His father was an engineer in pottery. The family name is incorrectly shown as Conley and both of Andrew's parents are incorrectly shown as having been born in Ireland.[2]

In 1885 Andrew had three younger brothers, Peter, Edward, and Thomas. They all lived in New Brunswick with their parents. The family name is incorrectly shown as Connoly.[3]

In 1895 Andrew and his six younger brothers, Peter, Edward (shown as Eddie), Thomas, John, Bernard, and William (shown as Willie) all lived in their parents' New Brunswick home. The family name is incorrectly shown as Connelly.[4]

Andrew served in the Third New Jersey Infantry as a musician during the Spanish American War in 1898.[5]

In 1900, Andrew lived with his parents and brothers Peter, Edward, Thomas, John, Bernard, and Connolly-908 in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States.[6]

Andrew married Margaret Connolly, an Irish immigrant, about 1901[7] and they had four children (see Notes). It is not known whether Andrew and Margaret were related, other than by their marriage.

In 1905 Andrew and Margaret lived at 301 Sandford Street in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with their 2 year old daughter Rose. Andrew was employed as a lamplighter. The family name is incorrectly shown as Conaly. An additional member of the household was a 35 year old iron moulder named Peter, whose last name is transcribed as Canoe, but does not appear correct although his correct last name cannot be deciphered on the record. Living next door at 299 Sandford Street were Andrew's brother Edward, his wife Delia, and their newborn son John. Their family name is also incorrectly shown as Conaly. Their household also included 32 year old John Connors (again, likely to be incorrectly transcribed) who was married, but not employed. Finally a 70 year old widow named Sarah Breese (possibly Breeze) lived at the same address, as the only person in her own household.[8]

Andrew, classed as an invalid, began receiving a military pension September 5, 1906.[5]

In 1910, Andrew, Margaret, and their two children were living in in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States. Margaret's brother, James (born about 1882 in Ireland), and Andrew's brother, William also lived in their home.[7]

In 1915 Andrew and Margaret lived at 54 Jersey Avenue with their children Rose, Andrew, and Catherine. Andrew was a railroad usher, Rose attended the Washington Public School, and young Andrew attended the Saint Peter's Parish school.[9]

Andrew died November 25, 1919[10] in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States. He is buried in St John's Plot 3 of the Saint Peters Cemetery in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States.[1] His widow, Margaret applied for a military headsone on November 25, 1929, based on Andrew's service in the Spanish American War.[10]
