Narrative:

     Andrew Jackson Street was born on 25 Feb 1835 in Highland Co., Ohio.7,8,9 He moved to Missouri with his parents, John M. Street, and Mariah Brady about 1839. He was probably the male under age 5 listed in the household of his father, John M. Street, in the 1840 Federal Census of Wakenda, Carroll Co., Missouri.15 He appeared on the 1850 Federal Census of Carroll Co., Missouri, in the household of his parents.16 He married Lucinda Caroline Isom, daughter of Jonathan Isom and Martha Miles, on 19 Apr 1853 in Carroll Co., Missouri, with Rev. Aeron Baker officiating. She was a sister of the man his sister Sarah had married two years before.10,11,12
     On 1 Dec 1858 Andrew was granted a patent for an 80-acre parcel of land about eight miles northwest of Bogard, Carroll Co., Missouri, under the 1820 "Sale-Cash Entry" act. The same day he obtained a grant for a 160- acre parcel about a mile west of the first, under the same act. That act set the minimum price of public land at $1.25 per acre, with a minimum purchase to 80 acres, and required payment in cash, not on credit.17,18
     Andrew and Lucinda Caroline Isom appeared on the 1860 Federal Census of Morris Twp., Carroll Co., Missouri, enumerated 26 Jul 1860, reporting real estate valued at $4,000 and personal estate of $1,100. Their children Mary, Mariah, Tabitha and Dorsey were listed as living with them, as where her children by her two prior marriages, William and Sarah Martha Thomas, and Elisha Rudolph Fawks.19

Civil War Service --- Text Stolen from ReigelRidge.com !! ---


     The Enrolled Missouri Militia was created in Jul 1862 in response to a Confederate recruiting program begun that summer behind Federal lines in northeast Missouri. The previously established Missouri State Militia did not have the resources to address the growing guerrilla attacks. The new militia composed of part-time citizen soldiers was established to free the State Militia and Federal troops for field action. Most men in this militia served only a few weeks of active duty over the course of the next two and a half years.20
     The organization of the militia in Carroll Co., Missouri began in early late summer of 1862. The 65th Enrolled Missouri Militia was organized under Col. John B. Hale, with ten companies composed of men from Carroll and Livingston counties.21 Andrew and his younger brother James enrolled in Co. A, as privates under Capt. Minnis, on 28 Jul 1862. They entered active service the same day, and were released 6 Dec 1862, after 168 days in active service. The older brother, Andrew, was promoted to 1st lieutenant, though just when has not been found. John Wesley Isom, husband of their eldest sister, Sarah Jane, enrolled in the same unit on 9 Aug and served with them. Andrew was called to active service again from 30 Apr to 31 Oct 1864.22,23,24 Their younger brother John enrolled in the unit 30 Apr 1864.25
     Andrew and John transferred to Company B, 65th Regiment, Enrolled Missouri Militia, commanded by Capt. William A. Beaty, on 1 Aug 1864 at Carrollton, Missouri. Andrew continued at the rank of 1st. lieutenant, and John was enrolled as a corporal. They were ordered into active service 21 Sep.26,27,28
     The Provisional Enrolled Missouri Militia began organizing in May 1863 to replace the part-time Enrolled Missouri Militia. The new militia was composed of full-time troops, selected from the earlier militia. They were to be those "who could most easily be spared from their ordinary avocations, having but few if any others dependent upon their labor for support." They would become eligible for Federal pensions after the war.20 Capt. Beaty's company was reorganized as a unit of the P. E. M. M. At first it was known as Beaty's Carroll County Citizen Guards. The Citizen Guards were an unpaid organization, even though his company was paid under the authorization of the P. E. M. M. It was later known as Beaty's Carroll County Provisional Enrolled Missouri Militia.
     Andrew and John continued to serve in the company with their existing ranks and shown with their 1 Aug 1864 enrollment date. Their brother James was also listed as enrolling in the unit 1 Aug 1864 even though he is not shown as released from his previous unit until the next month.29,30,31 Andrew was credited with furnishing a horse and gear for 111 days. Andrew was captured 17 Oct 1864 with his brothers when his unit was surrendered. He was paroled the next day. He was never formally discharged.32,33,28

Supporting a Growing Family --- Text Stolen from ReigelRidge.com !! ---


     Andrew and Lucinda appeared on the 1870 Federal Census of Morris Twp., Carroll Co., Missouri, enumerated 30 Jun 1870, reporting real estate valued at $8,000 and personal estate of $2,362. Their children Mary, Mariah, Tabitha, Dorsey, Julia and Cornelia were listed as living with them, as was E. R. Fox, age 20, who was listed as a farm laborer. It seems likely that he was a relative of hers by her second marriage, as Fawks was commonly misspelled as Fox. Sarah and John Wesley Isom, his sister and her brother, and their family were evidently living close by as they were listed as the second preceding household in the census record.34
     Andrew and Lucinda appeared on the 1880 Federal Census of Morris Twp., Carroll Co., Missouri, enumerated 22 Jun 1880. Their children Dorsey and Cornelia were listed as living with them. His sister and her brother and their family were apparently still living nearby, as they were listed as the third following household in the census record.35
     In the final distribution of his father's estate in Aug 1889, Andrew and each of his living siblings received $602.17 9/11.36
     Andrew applied for an invalid pension based on his Civil War service 11 Oct 1893. His application was rejected, most likely because his service in the part-time state militia did not qualify for a Federal pension.37
     Andrew and Lucinda appeared on the 1900 Federal Census of Bogard, Carroll Co., Missouri, enumerated 1 Jun 1900, reporting that they owned their home, free of mortgage.38
     His wife died on 11 Jun 1902.39
     He was a farmer.19,34,35 He was reported in 1881 to own 940 acres of land, 500 acres of that cultivated.5 By 1900 he had apparently retired from farming and was living on the income from his properties. He reported his occupation as landlord.38
     Andrew died on 4 Jan 1908 at age 72, at his home.9,13 He was buried in Streets Family Cemetery, Carrollton, Carroll Co., Missouri.14

A Substantial Estate --- Text Stolen from ReigelRidge.com !! ---


     Andrew died intestate (without leaving a will) and letters of administration for his estate were issued on 6 Feb 1908 in Probate Court, Carroll Co., Missouri, to Julia Ellen Street, his daughter. She posted a bond for $30,000, with her sisters Dorsey, Mary and Mariah and niece Estella Liller acting as securities.40
     An inventory of his estate was filed the same day. It listed seven parcels of land in Carroll Co. totaling 420 acres. Two of those made up 60 acres of the 180-acre parcel he had purchased from the government in 1858, so he had disposed of the rest of that parcel. The 80-acre parcel he had purchased at the same time was included, but noted that it had been sold in 1907, the deed to be delivered the next month. There were also three lots in Carrollton listed, and 320 acres in Las Animas Co., Colorado. Four notes were listed, with face value of $4,366. There was $801 on deposit in the local bank.41
     The first settlement of the estate was filed on 16 Feb 1909. The administratrix reported assets collected of $19,950, composed of the notes and interest collected on them, $1,600 from the sale of land that was in progress when Andrew died, $13,280 from the sale of other land, and rent from the farm. Expenses totaled $463, including $100 for his tombstone. Partial distributions of $1,000 had been made to his daughters Mariah, Julia and Dorsey, and of $500 to Estella and Elizabeth Liller, daughters of his late daughter Cornelia. His daughter Mary was shown having made the payment for the pending land sale and as receiving $1,600, apparently offsetting transactions.42
     The final settlement of the estate was filed on 2 Apr 1910. The administratrix reported an additional inventory of $226. She reported expenses of $470, including her own fee of $350. Partial distributions of $1,000 had been made to his daughters Mariah, Julia and Dorsey, and of $500 to his granddaughters Estella and Elizabeth Liller, and $400 to his daughter Mary. This left a balance in the estate of $4,870, which was to be distributed as $1,848 to each surviving daughter and $924 to the two granddaughters.42
