My gggrandfather was Oren Sylvester Andrews. (O.S.) b.17 Oct 1835 in Sandusky County, OH,
d.14 Aug 1903 in Mitchell County, TX. He is buried in Spade Cemetery and has a Masonic symbol on his grave marker.
He married Susan Ann Hope in Colorado County, TX 06 May 1858.
Susan b. 27 Jan 1844 in Colorado County, TX. d. 02 Oct 1873 in Colorado County, TX.
He married Sarah Elizabeth Bean bet. 1873-1876
Family records state he was an only child. I have tried everything I can think of to find name of his father and mother.
I wondered if any records might show father's name. I believe his father died before Oren was 5 years old, and think his mother moved to Colorado County, TX from Ohio and remarried.
Because of some info in the 1850 and 1860 census, I am wondering if his mother's name may have been Catherine who married a Joseph Tinkler.
I would really appreciate any help or any little tidbit of info. Thanks. Kaye
