I've traced that story many years ago too. The Joseph you mention is my line but he was born much earlier than Andrew. So I'm not so sure the story is true. I alson hired a lady to check in the christening records in Scotland & she could not locate a record of any Andrew's born in 1753.

LDS temple records listed Joseph living to be 115 yrs old so I don't believe that. Many others have copied this info into their family trees.

Andrew was buried in Bloomingdale, Jefferson co, OHio & died 11 Sep 1827 wife Sophia Waltemyer died 19 Dec 1828. There is a nice stone rock on his grave with a sign on it. The stone was taken from your parents land in eastern York Co. Pa & brought out to Ohio to place on their graves. 11 children. how are you related?

This story of Andrew and Joseph surviving are not actually true.
According to the Ohio Valley Genealogies:
Andrew Ralston born in Adams Co., PA 1753, of Scotch-Irish descent, his father, mother, sister and brother were killed by Indians in Adams Co, in 1761, ONE SISTER (who afterwards married and settled at Pittsburg) and himself escaping the massacre, served in the Revolutionary War: m. in Adams county, Sophia Waltermeyer, a native of that county; Andrew removed to Jefferson Co., Ohio, in 1814, etc, etc. Also lists his children.
