1) Greene Co, Arkansas Marriage Index, Andis:  John William Andis (1872-1952) and his wife, Frances M (Killion) Andis (1873-1952) made their home in Greene Co, AR. We believe the entries below descend from their son Fred Cecil Andis. John is the son of Abraham Fleenor Andis (1848-1924) and Malissa J (Vorris) Andis (1853-1891), who settled in the Martin Co, Indiana area.  

Bride's list:

1984 Andis Marcia   Warren Thomas N.

1) Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Christian Co, Illinois: Andes, Marjorie 1912-1964. Some of the descendants of Henry Andis (c. 1815-1895) and Mary (Napier) Andis (born c. 1815) settled in this area.  Marjorie is most likely connected to Wiley Parker Andis (1858-1939) and his wife, Mary Catherine (Raisner) Andis (1859-1910 to 1920).  Wiley is Henry and Mary's son.

2) Effingham, Illinois:  Elijah Andis married Sarah Bledsoe on January 26, 1889 in Union Township, Effingham Co, IL. Elijah was a farmer living in Jackson Township and was 38 years old (born c. 1851 IN). His parents are listed as William Andes and Sarah Andrews.  Elijah was first married to Martha A Walls in Clark Co, IL on April 18, 1873.  Martha is likely the daughter of Nehemiah Walls, and sister to Mary Jane Walls (born c. 1856), who married James Andis (c. 1847-1882) in Clark Co, Illinois.  This was also Sarah Bledsoe's second marriage.  She was living in Union Twp, and was 25 years of age, born Kentucky, with no other information. 

An Ancestry Tree shows: Sarah's name was Sarah Jane Owens (1865-1943); daughter of Marshall Owens; married to Martin Bledsaw on 07 Feb 1879 Lawrence Co, IN - had 5 children; married to Elijah Andis 26 Jan 1890 Effingham Co, IL - no children listed; married to Peter Cotton 06 Dec 1894 Effingham Co, IL - had 4 children; and then Charles Cotton (Peter's son). She is buried Mt Gilead Cemetery, near Decatur, Macon Co, IL. This information appears to be very well researched, with a death certificate, obituary and tombstone. The tombstone includes Charles A Cotton and Sarah J Cotton (20 Jun 1865 KY-23 Jun 1943 IL).

Elijah's son, David Edward Andes, (by first wife Martha A Walls) was married to Sarah Elizabeth Carter at Brider Point, Effingham Co, IL on June 30, 1896.  Edward was born 07 Feb 1875, died 23 Mar 1954, and is buried Valhalla Gardens of Memory in St Clair Co, IL.  Sarah Elizabeth Carter was 15, born Effingham Co, IL to Henry J. Carter and Martha E. Bangmar Carter.  Consent for the marriage was given by J Carter, father.

There is also a birth in Clark Co, IL to Elijah Andis and Martha Walls:  Andis, male, 27 Oct 1880.

The 1880 Federal census is the only place we find Elijah (spelled Eliga), and he is with his wife, Anna and children, Jane and Edward.  The census states he was born c. 1851 Indiana.  

3) Morgan Co, Illinois: George Lee married Mary Andis 23 Feb 1835.

4) Christian Co, Illinois:  Bassini M Darsh (age 23) married Miss Marie L Andes (age 22) September 25, 1894.  Of the Andis families that we can place in Christian, Co, IL, this could possibly be a daughter of Abel Andis (1838-1892) and Nancy (Juell) Andis (1840-). It would be the right time frame for their children, and we do have two unknown children born during that approximate period of time to Abel and Nancy.

5) Effingham Co, Illinois: Peter Cotton of Watson, 58, born IN, son of Peter Cotton and Susan Neurit (2nd marriage) and Sarah (Older) Andis of Jackson Twp, 39, born KY, daughter of Benjamin Older and Elizabeth Neower (3rd marriage) at the Andis residence on 06 Dec 1894 by A H Pitkin, JP, witnessed by A J Walles and Ed W Wendever.
