I do not see Andrew in the 1900 census. In 1910 he's a ward in Dallas Co., TX. Below him is the name T. B. Thornell, 8 years old. This could be his brother. I find no match for T. B. in any other census.

It looks like William had a daughter named Melissa Ann. The last I find of her is that she's married to Timothy H. Romero. The last child I see born to them was in Jefferson County. The below person lives in Port Neches, which is in Jefferson County. You might want to try & contact her.
If you're desperate to find his parents, you could get a copy of his SS application to see what it says. The fee is $27.00. If you're interested, here's the site for ordering.
