Colonel Joseph A Andrews

Cincinnati Enquirer, 27 January 1909, page 9


Colonel J A Andrews, head of the Newport Rolling Mill Company and the Newport Steel Company, died yesterday morning, shortly after 4 o'clock at his residence, Fifth and park avenue, Newport Ky.  All of the members of his family were present at his beside when the end came.  He had been ailing for some time and his death was no unexpected.  He was compelled to take to his bed several weeks ago as a result of kidney trouble, with which he had suffered slightly for some time.  Toward the latter part of his illness his heart became affected and despite herculean efforts on the part of his attending physicians, he sank slowly and the end came peacefully.

As stated in yesterdays Enquirer, Colonel Andrews was in his seventieth year and was a veteran of the Civil War.  He was one of Newport's honored citizens and the city will feel his loss keenly.  In commercial life he was well and favorably known in the three cities.  He was probably the largest single employer of labor in Newport.  Some time ago he built the Andrews Building at Fifth and Race streets, that is one of the finest buildings in Cincinnati.  His son, W N Andrews is a member of the Board of Council of Newport.

The funeral services will be held tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock at the family residence, Fifth and Park avenue, Newport and Rev Clingman, pastor of St Paul's Episcopal Church, will officiate.  The remains will be interred in the family lot at Evergreen Cemetery.

The members of the local lodge of Amalgamated Association Iron, Steel and Tin Workers will meet this afternoon at 2 o'clock at their headquarters in Red Men's Hall to take suitable action on Mr. Andrew's death.
