The following article from an unknown source was found in the Local History Files at the Lowell Public Library (LH--Vital Statistics, vol. 4, page 29):
Andrew Henderson was born in Juniata county, Pennsylvania, June 2, 1836, and died after a short illness Friday, May 3, 1907, at the home of his daughter Mrs. William Sheets, aged 70 years, 11 months, 1 day. When a mere boy he, with his parents, moved to Indiana, where he has since made his home. He leaned the carpenter trade in early life, which occupation he has since followed most of the time. He was an undertaker in the town of Binghurst, Ind., for about fifteen years. He was united in marriage to Martha Baker, October 14, 1859. To this union four children were born, two of whom died in infancy, Jenny Blanche, who died when she was sixteen, and Mrs. Anna Sheets, of Lowell, with whom he has resided since the death of his wife. He belonged to the 72nd Indiana Volunteer Mounted Infantry, Wilder's Brigade, in which he served for more than two years. He was a member of the Methodist church since boyhood and has served in every official capacity open to laymen. He was kind-hearted, jovial and sympathetic in disposition.
