I've identified their father as Loyal B. Andrus, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church who was born in Cornwall, Vermont in 1809. Their mother was an Ann Palmer according to most sources consulted. The Catherine listed as John E.'s mother appears to be a second wife for their father or John E.'s stepmother. I will post a fuller report with complete documentation after I've assembled all the sources into a good narrative. It may be the weekend before I have time to do that though!
