    Obituary- Andrews, Joseph
    Joseph Anderson [sic Andrews], a well known and former resident of Silver Lake passed away at Parsons, Kan., May 11, 1918, at the age of 72 years, 4 months, and 11 days.

    He was born December 30, 1845, near Mt. Pleasant, Somerset Co., Pa.

    When he was about a year old he moved to a farm near Loudenville, O., with his parents. His father died in 1865, and in April, 1879, he, with his mother, two brothers, and three sisters, moved to a farm near Rossville, Kan., where they resided for 4 years, then moved to a farm near Silver Lake, Kan. Some years later they moved to Silver Lake, living there until the death of his mother, which occurred March 21, 1909.

    He was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Andrews and is survived by five sisters and three brothers, as follows: Mrs. Margaret Howenstine, Lawton, Okla.; Mrs. Sarah Hammitt, Waynesville, Ill.; Mrs. Jemima Weltmer, Lawtonville, Ohio; Mrs. Belle Bridgeford and Mrs. Joanna Reinhardt of Silver Lake; J. C. Andrews, Lawtonville, Ohio; T. W. Andrews, Los Angeles, Cal.; J. K. Andrews, Topeka.

    He was well liked by all those who knew him, and if he had any enemies, we did not know it.

    The funeral services were held at the home of his sister, Mrs. Belle Bridgeford, at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 15. Mr. Shellabarger had charge of the funeral, and Rev. Adel of Topeka preached the sermon. He read the 90th Psalm and preached a very fine sermon. He admonished all present to be prepared for the time when their last day would come, or rather to so live that each day would have a little bit of heaven in it.

    The singing was very appropriate and was rendered by Mrs. Edith Goodno, Mrs. Mina Wentworth, Mr. Carl French, and Abe Mowers, with Vera Hook at the organ. The large crowd present and beautiful floral offerings spoke volumes of affection. Interment was made at Rossville Cemetery.
