Patrick Andrews

Patrick E. Andrews was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma in 1936.  He is descended from people who pioneered in that area during the transition to statehood from the Indian and Oklahoma Territories. His forebears, veterans of both the Union and Confederate armies of the Civil War, moved west from Pennsylvania and Mississippi to make new lives in the state.  As the generations rolled by, they became homesteaders, ranchers, merchants, lawmen, bootleggers, writers, poets, and musicians.
