He came with his parents to Oregon in 1864, via the Isthmus, and lost his father by death soon after reaching the Pacific Ocean, and saw him buried from the ship in a watery grave. He located with the family near Brownsville, and here received his education, completing the same at Philomath College. He made his home near Brownsville until 1882. In that year he went over to Seattle, where he accepted a position as mailing clerk, filing it eight months. In 1883, he came to Heppner, and has made this enterprising place his permanent home. In 1886, he was elected clerk of the county, and was re-elected to this position in 1888, at the instance and by the support of the Republican party. Mr. Andrews is one of the men of growing influence in the Inland Empire; and it is to him and such as he that his community will look for its development and further progress.
