Worley H. Andrews


Came to this county in 1873, filed on the land that now contains the town site of Lyle and although but 18 years old he succeeded in holding the land until old enough to put his homestead on it and after living on the land seven years longer the government thinking he had earned it gave him a title. He hauled bones, trapped and freighted for a living, people in those days not expecting to raise very much were not particular whether they planted anything or not. Mr. Andrews served eight years as county clerk and deputy and made an excellent officer. He lives on a farm northeast of the city and at present is erecting one of the largest barns in the county. As one of the old timers he has always taken the HERALD and is prompt in paying for it.
