      "Andrew came with his family from Germany when he was 7 years old and settled in Frederick County, Maryland. He bought land from his father and also bought his farm on the edge of what is now Jefferson, Maryland, 12 miles south of Frederick, Maryland. He moved to Donegal Township, in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, in 1796 and until his death occupied the land which he opened out and cultivated, and on which he raised his family."
