Andrew Laman, they called him Andy.
born Oct 21 1843 two miles northeast of Terre Haute, Henderson Co, IL
died Sep 24 1930 Clarinda, Page Co, IA
Andy was a son of Stephen Laman and Sidna Marilda Smith. He lived in Illinois and married Margaret Ann Jolliff, Aug 28 1873 in Baldwin Mill, Ill (town no longer exists or name is wrong- their daughter, in elderly years, said that's where they married). He moved the family to Kerwin Kansas not long after the 1880 census enumeration (this town no longer exists either but my mom has the old land title to their land in Kerwin). They didn't stay long and nearly "starved to death". They settled in or near Clarinda, Iowa and remained- some cousins still live there today.
Andy was my 2nd ggrandfather.
