The fifth son of Jacob SCHMIDT and Katharina KROEN is ANDREAS, who changed his name to ANDREW when he emigrated to America. Landing in New York on July 6, 1906, he made his way to Chicago, then Tennessee and New Mexico. In 1909, Andrew went to Kansas City to learn drafting and carpentry. He then worked in Texas, Wyoming, and New Mexico. In 1913, he heard that work was plentiful in Canada and was on his way to Vancouver when he stopped for a while to work in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1914, Andrew met NELLIE MAY BANGERTER, and he abandoned his plans of working in Canada. Andrew and Nellie were married in 1915, and they settled in Granger, where Andrew was able to build a nice home. They had twelve children, FRIEDA, ADOLF (ED), NELLIE, JESSIE, ROSA (ROSALYNN), LOUISE, ANDREW, ALMA (ROBERT), ETHA, JOSEPH, LILLIAN, and ELSIE, all born in Granger, which is now West Valley City.
