I am trying to determine if a particular Andrews ever existed. In 1902 there appeared in Chicago an individual who published a book under the pen name of S.W. Erdnase, which is E.S. Andrews spelled backwards. This person's identity has always been a mystery, although some claim him to have been Milton Franklin Andrews. Unfortunately, the physical descriptions of the two men vary greatly, so the matter is by no means settled. I would like to know if there ever was an E.S. Andrews. He would have been born circ. 1860 since "Erdnase" was described as "about 40 or 45" in 1902. He would have been well educated for his day and from a well-to-do family, since the description was of a man whose hands did not exhibit the effects of manual labor. Since he apparently mixed with others of education in gentlemen's clubs, he would have to have had the manners of that class. There is no information as to his death or other family details. I would greatly appreciate any info you might have.  David Alexander (

Hi I'm trying to find William Edward Andrews and his brother Joel, in and about Jersey Co.,ILL around the 1900s William E. b.3-3-1864 don't know where. Joel's death memorial pamphlet has Joel born 1867. Unknown where. Died in Rosedale (Jersey Co.) 1936 William married Caroline W. Franz 11-22-97. Had a son Charles William 09-24-1899. Caroline died in child birth 09-24-1899 AND then William was killed. The family story goes his brother Joel killed William over a woman. Now Joel to my knowledge never went to jail as he was always showing up "checking on the Boy." I have custodial papers dated 1906 which makes me think the incident happen prior. Charles W. was raised by his FRANZ grandparents, in Rosedale. I don't know a thing more other than the fact that both Joel and William had property in what is now Pere Marquette State Park.
