Andrew Darwin Caswell was born in Lake county, Ohio, July 21, 1836 and died at Fremont, Indiana, Dec 6, 1899. The immediate cause of his death was acute congestion of the right lung, complicated with disease of the left lung, which was contracted during his service in the army.
He came to Steuben county in 1840. At the breaking out of the war of the Rebellion he quit school and enlisted in Co. B, 4th Mich. Vols., serving in that and other commands until the close of the war. Dec. 25, 1863, he married Sarah Jane Hall. To their union was born eleven children, eight of whom, with his widow, survive him.
As a citizen, Andrew D. Caswell enbodied fully those qualities
go to make up an exemplary life. In his family he was a kind
effectionate husband and father. In his business relations
honest and upright. In his associations with the people where he lived, he was careful not to say nor do aught that would reflect upon the reputation of any one. It can truly be said of him that he lived an honest and manly life and though reaching the "three score year and ten", he had by a well spent life fully rounded out his life work on earth. He has gone to join the unnumbered hosts on high. Few men have been better prepared for the invitation, "Come up higher". Peace be with him.
