WILLIAM H. ANDREWS
|William H. Andrews, one of Bonne Terre's live
general merchants, has spent his life in his native county, where he was born September
27, 1857. The Andrews name is one that is found among the earliest pioneers of this
region. His parents were both worthy people of Missouri--namely, William R. and Eliza N.
(McHenry) Andrews. Our subject, William H., had the sturdy training that comes from a life
of labor on the farm, but his inclinations afterward led him to commerical life, and he
finally settled on that branch known as general merchandise. In 1882 a firm in that line
was established under the name of W. H. Andrews & Co., and the same business is now
the flourishing trade conductd by the subject of this sketch. Mr. Andrews holds democratic
opinions, and in religious affairs has identified himself with the Methodist Episcopal
