Funeral services for Edgar E. Andrews of R. 1, Gilman, Wis., were held Thursday at 2 p.m. at the Gilman Funeral Home, Rev. John Koch of Cornell, officiating. Graveside services were conducted by the American Legion at Riverside Cemetery (near the Black River), Withee, Wis., where he was laid to rest.

He was a veteran of World War I. Mr. Andrews was born Oct. 14, 1889 at Wheeler, Wis., and died Feb. 13, 1965 of exposure and exhaustion at Deer Lake in Sawyer Co., Wis.

When a small boy, the family moved to Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), where he spent his boyhood days and attended Thorp Public Schools.

He liked the sport of fishing and hunting, so in 1930 they returned to Wisconsin and bought a 120 acre farm 6 1/2 miles west of Gilman where he spent the rest of his life.
