Andrews, Steven M. (History - 1828)




1891 Bio. Hist. Of Clark Jackson Counties, WI
pg. 156

STEVEN M. ANDREWS, Justice of the Peace and School Clerk of Greenwood, was born near Ottawa, Ontario, June 14, 1828, the son of Elkanah Anderson (deceased), who was born near Oswego, New York, of English and Welsh ancestry. His father, John Anderson, came from the latter country, and his mother, nee, Hannah Baker, from England. Our subject's mother, formerly Elizabeth Hutton, was born near Lake Champlain, New York. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson had eight children, six of whom still survive, viz: John, Jane, Elkanah, Joseph, Stephen and George C. The father had two children by a former marriage: Rubie and Lorena. The parents both died in Canada.

Stephen M. Andrews, the subject of this sketch, was reared on a farm, and received a limited education. He came to Juneau County, Wisconsin, in July, 1868, where he remained until 1870, and in that year came to this county, locating in what is now Greenwood. It was then heavy woods, there being but three houses on the present village site, and he is the eldest settler now living here. There were deer, bear and Indians all around him, where are now fine farms. He cleared a fine farm of eighty acres, which joins the village.

Mr. Andrews was married September 2, 1851, to Harriet Campbell, a native of Canada, and they have ten children, eight of whom still survive, namely: Mary J., George D., Ann E., Franklin H., Victoria I., Roderick M., William C. and Hattie M. Mary J. married Robert Robinson, of St. Paul. Ann E. was married to William Johnson, of Eaton Township, and has one child, Rawlin B. Mr. Andrews is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and holds the offices of steward and trustee. He is devoted to the cause, and gives liberally to the support of the gospel. He has been chairman of the Town Board, and assessed the county the first time, when Eaton Township contained fourteen Congressional townships. He is also Town Treasurer and School Clerk, and has been Justice of the Peace eight years. Socially he is a member of the I. O. O. F., and politically a Republican.
