ANDRUS Sat Dec 28 16:09:05 1996
I am trying to find the birthplace of my g-g grandfather, Stephen W. Andrus. He wrote in his family Bible that he was born in 1828 in Seneca Co., N.Y., but I have never been able to confirm this. I wonder if he might have been born elsewhere in N.Y., and lived as a young boy in Seneca Co. His parents were Samuel Andrus & Eliza Miller; Samuel was born about 1806 and was later a carpenter & farmer and probably a Baptist. Other children of Samuel & Eliza born in N.Y. were Cornelia, George, Emugene, and Francis. Any help gratefully received !
