return to parents' page:  John Andis and Elizabeth Mary "Betsey" Lewis

1) Lilbourne L Andis:

     Note: We highly suspect that this is the first male child of John Andis and Elizabeth Lewis; 

     born c. 1820 Washington Co, VA; 
    died 25 Oct 1886 Lawrence, Douglas, KS; news article regarding Lilbourne's death;
    cause of death: heart disease; cemetery index
    buried Oak Hill Cemetery, Lawrence, Douglas, KS - pauper's field, old section, lot 1180 - unmarked;
    census records for Lilbourne
; 
    married Julia Ann Simpson (likely not her maiden name) on 23 Aug 1838, Rush Co, IN
              (born 1817 KY; 
              died 1880-1885 probably Topeka, Shawnee, KS (in 1880 census, it states she has "consumption of the lungs")
              probably buried Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, KS - no record of Julia in this cemetery)
    marriage record for Lilbourne and Julia;  
    children:  
        1) William Andis - born c. 1840 Johnson Co, IN; 
                died after 1880 census (can't find after 1900);
                census records for William; Civil War draft registration;  

              Note: We have a death record from the Oregon State Hospital located in Portland, OR.  A William Andis (born Indiana) was admitted 26 Dec 1911 for Dementia. He died of apoplexy on 16 Oct 1912 at the age of 72. He was buried in an unknown cemetery in Portland, OR. We believe this is a match, as William's son William (and family) were in Oregon in the 1920 census.

                William married (1) Mary Jane Huff on 24 Jul 1860 Hendricks Co, IN
                            (born 1843 IN;
                            died Mar 1875-Jun 1880 likely Shawnee Co, KS)
               marriage record for William and Mary;  
               children:
                   1) Mary S "Mollie" Andis - born 1862 Johnson Co, IN; 
                            died 04 Jun 1882 Shawnee Co, KS; cause of death: suicide by morphine;
                            news article regarding Mollie's death
; cemetery index; 
                            buried Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, KS - Sec 48, Lot 5, Grave S3; 
                            census records for Mollie 
                           
                   2) Sarah Ann Andis - born 1863 IN;
                            died after 1880 census;
                            census records for Sarah;
                            married Isaac Andis* on 03 Aug 1881 Douglas Co, KS
                                         (born Dec 1852 IN;
                                         died after 1900 census);
                            marriage record for Sarah and Isaac;
                            children?   

                     * Possibilities for this Isaac Andis include Isaac (son of Lilbourne and Julia) - found below under
                        (4) Isaac Andis or Isaac V Andis (son of Simon and Sarah) - found here under (1) Isaac V Andis.
                        We see no sign that Isaac (son of Simon and Sarah) was in Indiana,
                        so it's very likely that this Isaac is the son of Lilbourne and Julia.
