P.B. Andrews Dead

Well Known Colored Man Died At Home Her Sunday Morning.

P.B. Andrews, colored, of 703 North Fourth street, died at the family home early Sunday morning, following a several days illness. The cause of death is given as double pneumonia. Mr. Andrews was one of the best known colored men in this city and he had resided in this vicinity since 1874, at which time he took up a claim in Bolton township. He and his family resided on this farm for many years and later moved to the city. He is survived by the wife who is now ill and three children, and one grandchild and one great grandchild. The children are Mrs. Dora B. Hubbard, of Nowata, Okla., Mrs. Frances Fagan of this city and Bert Andrews of Long Beach, Calif. The granddaughter is Mrs. Junita Martin and the great grandchild is Imogene Martin.

Mr. Andrews was a veteran of the Civil war and was a well known member of the Negro Masons. He came to this city from Dawagiac, Mich., where he was born in August 1842. He was married to Mary M. Purcell, March 6, 1872, at that place. To this union five children were born, two of whom preceded him to the grave.

He was first sergeant in Company G, 42nd regiment, colored infantry, in the Civil War. Dora Hubbard, the oldest child of the family, was the first colored child born in Cowley county. Mr. Andrews was a member of the A.M.E. church of this city. All of the children are here except the son.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 at the A.M.E. church, in charge of Rev. W.E. Smith. Officials of the A.F. & A.M. lodge, No. 132, will have a part in the services also the G.A.R.'s are asked to attend in a body and act as honorary pall bearers. They will meet at the house at 3 o'clock. Interment will be made in Mercer cemetery.
