Looking for parents of Joseph Henry Harrison Andrews of AL
My grandfather was Joseph Henry Harrison Andrews. I know his mother's name was Elizabeth but maiden name is unknown. I got this from 1870 census of Mobile, AL. I have no idea what Joseph's father's name was. Joseph was born in 1864 supposedly in AL, even though 2 of his sisters stated on 2 different census records, that they were born in La.
I feel that Joseph's father might have been in the Civil War and was killed, since the 1870 census states that Elizabeth (the mother) was head of household. Also, one of Joseph's sisters married in 1872 at age 14 and Elizabeth, the mother, stated that she was the only surviving parent.
Any help would be appreciated. Joseph's sisters were named Martha, Sarah and Emma. Martha married a Cambell 1st, then a Miles 2nd., Sarah married a Mobley, and Emma married a Sorenson.
