Andrus, James F. (1842? - 1935)
The remains of James F. Andrus, 93 years old veteran of the Civil War, were brought here from Ladysmith last Saturday afternoon for burial in the family lot besides his wife, who passed away nine years ago.
Death came to Mr. Andrus last Thursday, a short time before noon, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nate Hand, in Ladysmith. He was not ill, but merely succumbed to old age. For the past two years he has made his home with his daughter, and until ten years before his passing away, was as active as usual.
Deceased saw active service during the duration of the civil war. He had four honorable discharges from the union army. During the early part of the war he was a tent mate of Geo. W. Peck, and the friendship formed in the service lasted until the death of the governor years later. Mr. Andrus was enrolled as a member of Eagle Post of the G. A. R. in Eau Claire.
Immediate survivors are three daughters, Mrs. Nate Hand, Ladysmith, Mrs. Elizabeth Tubbs, and Mrs. Ida Royer, of Niles, Mich.; and one son, Earl Andrus, of Iron Mountain, Mich.
