In 1850, came to the new village George W. and Julius C. Andrews, moving from Portage County, Ohio, whither the family had emigrated from Vermont. They opened the first hardware and tinning establishment in Dowagiac, occupying at the start the basement of the old American (now the Commercial) House. Julius C. Andrews removed in 1853, to California. George W. Andrews, who brought with him to the village his wife, Sarah A. (Jones), and two children, has ever since resided in Dowagiac and been one of its leading citizens. Soon after coming to the place, he was elected Justice of the Peace and has served most of the time since in that capacity. His brother, Luman, came to the State also in 1850, and to Dowagiac three or four years later.
