The "Andrus Family Tree" is probably "Genealogical History of John and Mary
Andrews who settled in Farmington, Conn. 1640..." by Alfred Andrews, 1872.
It's expensive - c. $100-120 - through Higginson Books (they have a website).
It's often available in genealogical libraries; I'm not sure if LDS has a
On p. 287:
"Grove Andrews [the author pretty much uses ANDREWS for everyone, even if
ANDRUS seems to be what the subjects used/preferred], fifth son of Jonathan,
Sr. of Simsbury, Conn., and his wife Sophia Lawrence, of the same town; born
21st September, 1800, at Simsbury; married 14 October, 1832, Sarah Gearhart,
born 26th April, 1809, at Allegany County, N. Y. He lives at Nunda, McHenry
County, Ill., and is a farmer. He removed from Simsbury, Conn., to Livingston
County, N. Y., in 1831.

I have found a BLM record in Adams County, Wisconsin for Lucy Andrews, Sect Nr: 19, Township 17N, Range 7E, signed 1858. Another for Adin J. Aldrich Sect Nr: 20, Township 17N, Range 7E, signed 1856
Calvin Andrews/Andrus was the son of Hiram and Lucy (Pratt) Andrews/Andrus. Sally Ann Aldrich was the daughter of Adin/Aden and Hannah (Rifle) Aldrich. Calvin and Sally married at Adams County, WI March 4, 1862.
Could anyone possibly do an 1860 census lookup or cemetery lookup for me to verify if this is the right Andrews/Andrus family? Especially Hiram and Lucy.
I would really appreciate any help I can get. Thanks very much.
