Alice Wenn was born in the state of New York, Sept. 10, 1851. Her parents moved to Osborn Hollow, where she lived until the age of sixteen, when she became acquainted with and was married to Mr. Thomas J. Andrus of Kirkland, Sept. 28, 1867. Ten children were born to this union, of which Willie, the oldest, died at the age of five years, and the youngest, who died in infancy.
