Andrews, Josiah an English Congregational minister, was born at Lichfield, Dec. 27, 1821, of earnest Christian parents. At a very early age he gave his heart to God, and became an active Christian. He preached his first sermon in a barn when he was about fifteen years old. At the age of seventeen he went to Georgetown, Demerara; and after laboring some time he returned to England, and became pastor of the Church at Long Stratton, Norfolk. Soon after he sailed for Jamaica, under the auspices of the London Missionary Society, and, at the close of seven years, returned to England, and became the pastor successively of several churches, the last of which was that of Shanklin, where he labored four years. He died April 8, 1878. See (Lond.) Cong.. Year-book, 1879, p. 296.
