M A Andis


Note: A family member saw this stone in the 1970s,
but even at that time it appeared to be partially buried and in poor condition. 
We found no evidence of the stone in the summer of 2007.  
Our understanding is that the tombstone was a flat one and is/was in the 
northwest area of the cemetery - near the cluster of various crude native stones.  

Matthias A Andis

Matthias Andis's place of birth is unknown to us, although we know 
he lived in Frederick Co, MD and served in the militia during the Revolutionary War. 
He first appears in the records of Washington County, VA when he 
purchased 199 acres in Rich Valley, Washington County, VA from
John Young for 80 pounds on September 07, 1788. 
He was enumerated in the 1790 census in Frederick County, MD with 
2 females in his household. However, this census may have been taken 
as early as 1788. The next reference to Matthias is his marriage to 
Susanna THOMAS on January 03, 1792 in Washington County, VA.
 Matthias died c. 1810. Matthias and Susanna had eleven children: 
Sarah "Sally" (married Henry Shutters), Andrew (married Mary Shutters), 
Christiana (married John Shutters), 
Susannah (married Isaac B "Blackhawk" Fleenor), 
John (married Elizabeth Mary "Betsey" Lewis), 
Elizabeth (married Solomon Fleenor), Isaac (married Susannah ____), 
Abraham (married Mary A "Polly" ____), 
James (married Nancy Fleenor), Nancy V (married Sampson Fleenor),
 and Mary Ann (married William Rush).
