Mart Andrews

Mart, the second son of Melvin and Flossie Andrews, was born Jan 20, 1908. He met his first wife Veronica Dechnick while studying art in the Philadelphia area, and they married in 1937. Mart got his start in the lumber business by working with his brother Dale, who claimed Mart was the best buyer east of the Mississippi. Soon Mart opened his own lumber business in Ellwood City. Sadly, Veronica died at age 29, not long after their son John was born in 1939. In 1944, Mart married Maxine Craig. They bought the old Major Patterson farmhouse on Paden Road, which they furnished handsomely with antiques, and where they raised four children: John, Melvin, Mark, and Mary Beth. A good businessman and farmer, Mart had the looks of a movie star and the temperament of an artist. He was also a reader and philosopher who believed in fairies and loved a good debate.
