Andrus, Jared a Congregational minister, was born at Bolton, Conn., in May, 1784. He was converted at the age of thirty. He hesitated to enter the ministry until, appealing to the lot, a favorable indication was given. He was ordained pastor of the Church at Chaplin, Conn., in 1820, where he labored for ten years, when he removed to Bozrah; from thence, in 1832, to North Madison. On the first Sabbath of 1832 he preached with great earnestness from the text "This year thou shalt die," and on Nov. 11 of the same year the text proved a prophecy of his own decease. See Cong. Quart. 1860, p. 178.
