GEORGE ANDREWS, farmer, P. O. Georgetown, was born in Devonshire, Eng., in 1844. He was reared in his native country, and, when fourteen years of age, came to America. Upon his arrival at Columbus, Ohio, he was stricken down with the small-pox, probably contracted while coming across the ocean. Upon his recovery, he went to Maysville, Mason Co., Ky., where he went to work at $6.50 per month, remaining there over four years. He was then employed in a saw-mill, and soon rose to be engineer. After twelve years at this business, he had saved enough to go to farming. He now owns forty-two acres of land, and by industrious habits is likely to become a large farmer at no very distant day. He was married, in 1877, to Sally, daughter of Samuel Smith, and a native of Cincinnati. They have two children - Henry S. and Samuel B. Mrs. Andrews is a faithful member of the Catholic Church. Mr. A. is Democratic in politics.
