About 6:30 he had another attack and he completely collapsed and from that time he continued to fail. Dr. McCray was summoned as also was Dr. Parker of Ida Grove, but it was very evident to them that the end was not far off. He rallied some but relapsed again and the end came at 4 o’clock yesterday morning. Thomas Jefferson Andre was born on May 10, 1857, in Columbiana County, Ohio, near the village of Hanover. In 1865 he came with his parents to Iowa, the family locating in Scott County on a farm. Dr. Andre remained with his folks on the farm for several years,...
