In Reply to: Who was General Andrews? by Lee Nichols of 409

My father was born in Andrews in 1916 and lived there until the 1930's. As I remember the story from him, a group wanted to turn Antioch into a major rail center. Andrews was either one of the promoters/developers of the idea or a railroad official (possibly division superintendant) The town was renamed for him.

That's all of the story I remember. Hope it helps
