M. Dale Andrews

Dale Andrews, the oldest son of Melvin and Flossie Andrews, lived the American dream. He started out a carpenter and ended up with his own lumber business with several stores, the main one in Mt. Jackson, plus a yard, mill, and cabinet shop in Bessemer. Dale also designed and built homes and was the developer of Mt. Jackson Knolls and of another housing development in Butler. His brother Ralph use to say Dale could sell you the shirt off his back.

Dale married Elizabeth Dennison on Aug 28, 1929, and they first lived in the apartment over his mother Flossie’s garage near the corner in Mt. Jackson. Elizabeth used to say they were lucky when the Depression hit because they had nothing to lose. Elizabeth and Dale had three children: David, Mary Alice, and Jean. Soon after David was born, they moved to a house Dale built across from the Mt. Jackson School. Later, in 1951, they moved to Elizabeth’s ancestral family farm near Jamestown PA.
