Andrew Dodge Edwards, the son of John S. Edwards and Mary Ann Dodge was born in New Boston, New Hampshire on 29 Dec 1858. A machinist by trade he worked all of his adult life for the railroad. He married Lillian Pickering on 11 May 1885 in Lake Village, New Hampshire. Lillian gave birth to a son, John D. born 9 March 1886. Sadly, she died on 22 May 1890 of “uremic convulsions of childbirth” after delivering her daughter Pearl.

Andrew married for a second time on 6 June 1894. His new wife was Lizzie Merrill and it was a second marriage for both of them. Although they were both in their middle 30’s, it does not appear that they had any children together. The couple moved to Northampton, Massachusetts by 1900 and then to Springfield, Massachusetts by 1910 where Andrew died on 15 May 1943. He was 84 years old.
