  • History of Andrews

    Thomas Andrews was born on December 29, 1852, in Tylertown, Mississippi. He was the fifth child born to Thompson and Lizzie Pearson Andrews. At age 14, his mother passed away. That same year he migrated to Texas with relatives. During his early years in Texas he worked as a clerk in a dry goods store and also on a farm near Plano. In 1886, Tom married Susan Ora Forman, daughter of William Forman, who gave the couple 300 acres of farmland as a wedding gift. Tom purchased another 200 acres where he and Ora raised their family. The farm was located where the Huffines Chevrolet dealership stands today. In addition to farming, Tom was an original stockholder in Farmers and Merchants National Bank. In 1913, he and three other men applied for a charter for The Farmers Gin Company of Plano of which he became a stockholder and board of directors member. He was also a member of the First Christian Church of Plano and served on their board of elders.
