BY B.K. UPTAGRAFFT, 6/5/1994: ANDREW UPTAGRAFFT WAS THE BROTHER TO MY GREAT
GRANDFATHER, LATHRUP WILLIAM (BILL) UPTAGRAFFT. ACCORDING TO UNION ARMY
RECORDS, ANDREW DESERTED THE UNION ARMY ON NOVEMBER 10, 1865. THESE RECORDS
SHOW THAT THE ANDREW WHO DESERTED WAS A NATIVE OF INDIANA, THAT HE ENROLLED IN THE (ARMY) MINNESOTA CALVARY, ON FEBRUARY 27, 1864, THAT HE WAS "MUSTERED IN" AT ROCHESTER, MINN., THE SAME DATE.

FROM HERE, WE FIND A TOURIST ATTRACTION LOCATED CURRENTLY (1994) IN THE
COLVILLE NATIONAL FOREST, NEWPORT RANGER DISTRICT, ON THE BATEY-BOULD OFF ROAD VEHICLE TRAIL SYSTEM, A "UPTAGRAFFT HOMESTEAD." FOREST SERVICE RECORDS REFLECT THAT THIS HOMESTEAD WAS CLAIMED, IMPROVED AND SOLD TO THE U.S. GOVERNMENT BY ONE ANDREW UPTAGRAFFT. (BELIEVED TO BE ANDREW UPTAGRAFFT, JR., SON OF ANDREW J. UPTAGRAFFT.)

ANDREW UPTAGRAFFT,(BELIEVED TO BE ANDREW JR.,) NEXT SHOWS UP AT (SMALL WORLD DEPT.) SPIRIT LAKE, IDAHO. THIS BRINGS US TO WHY THERE ARE SO MANY UPTAGRAFFTS, TODAY, IN SPOKANE, WA. THEY ARE THE DECENDANTS OF ANDREW J. UPTAGRAFFT. I WALKED THE CEMETERY AT SPIRIT LAKE, IDAHO, BUT FOUND NO TOMBSTONE BEARING THE NAME UPTAGRAFFT. I HAVE SINCE RECEIVED CORRESPONDENCE FROM MARY E. UPTAGRAFFT, 12005 E. BOONE AVE., SPOKANE, WA., 99206. MARY SENT A COPY OF A PAGE FROM THE UPTAGRAFFT FAMILY BIBLE ALONG WITH OTHER INFORMATION.

ANDREW JR. MARRIED MAE CLARK AND THEY HAD A DAUGHTER NAMED KATE AND TWO BOYS NAMED GLEN AND WILLIAM. ALL ARE BURIED AT SPIRIT LAKE, IDAHO.

NOTE: 1880 AND 1900 FAMILY IS ENUMERATED IN CENSUS, ST. LOUIS, GRATIOT, MICH. IN 1910 ANDREW J. ENUMERATED IN CENSUS IN GRAND RAPIDS TWP., KENT, MICH., WHERE HE IS AN INMATE IN THE MICHIGAN SOLDSIERS HOME. IN 1920, ANDREW JR., 42, AND HIS WIFE AND SON ARE ENUMERATED IN SOUNDEX FOR IDAHO, KOOTENAI, SPIRIT LAKE. ALSO ENUMERATED THERE WE MARGERY, 77, WILLIAM 34, AND GLENN 37. MARGERY CLAIMS TO HAVE EMIGRATED FROM CANADA TO U.S. IN 1879.
