Andrew J. Sutherland, section 17, Salem Township, was born in Syracuse, N. Y., in 1829, a son of Justice Sutherland, who came with his family to Steuben County in the fall of 1844 and settled on section 16, Salem Township, on a tract of unimproved land. Justice Sutherland built a house, and set out an orchard, and cleared about twenty-five acres of his land, living on the place till 1858, when he moved to Fillmore County, Minn., where he lived till his death. Of a family of seven children, five accompanied their parents to Steuben County, of whom only Andrew J. now resides here. He followed farming till the breaking out of the Rebellion, and in 1862 enlisted in Company B, One Hundredth Indiana Infantry, and served three years; was absent from his regiment but thirty days during his term of enlistment, participating in all the important engagements of the regiment. In 1865 he went to Minnesota and thence to Michigan, returning to Steuben County in 1870.
