Andrew Shirk1

M, b. 7 September 1753, d. 14 January 1829
FatherRev. Casper Shirk1 b. 1705, d. Jul 1770
MotherMagdalena Barbara Foulck1 b. 1710, d. 1796
     Andrew Shirk was born on 7 September 1753 at Canton Bern, Switzerland.1 Andrew Shirk was also known as Andrew Scheirch. He married Martha Hamilton circa 1780 at Georgia.1 Andrew Shirk lived; Switzerland, PA (prob Lancaster County), GA, KY, OH, IN.1 He is included in the biography of Wendle (Wintle) Sherk; TAS H1 Born Chestnut Hill, Lancaster Co. Moved to Sherksville as a child. In the Bethel Twp., tax list for 1771 he is shown as having 80 acres. In the 1772 list he is not shown but his brother Andrew is shown as having 30 acres. Moved to Franklin Co. in 1775 with his brother Joseph and their families. Located near Chambersburg on land that later adjoined the land of Martin Wenger, G18.2
He made a will at Springfield Township, Frankllin County, Indiana, on 31 December 1828.3 Andrew Shirk died on 14 January 1829 at Springfield Township, Franklin County, Indiana, at age 75.1 He was buried at Franklin County, Indiana; Big Cedar Grove Cemetery.1 Served in Revolutionary War - enlisted in the Pennsylvania Riflemen under Col. Wm. Thompson and his company was commanded by Capt Geo Nagel. This company was formed at Reading, Berks County, PA, and that zone as no doubt the home of that family of Shirks. Andrew joined the army against his father's will, as the latter was a Mennonite, opposed to all war. After the War, Andrew never went home again, and lost all track of his family. He was at Yorktown, the last battle of the War where Cornwalis was defeated in Virginia, and Andrew went home to his wife and first child, John (b July 7, 1781). Rebecca Shirk Winn, daughter of Andrew's son Samuel, said that all of her grandfather's family were born in Augusta, Georgia, where the family lived for a while, then went to Kentucky in a big caravan for safety against the Indians. Andrew had 12 horses, but lost all but one of them in Kentucky where he did not want to live because of slavery. They went on to Ohio and when they reached Cincinnati it had only a population of about 20 people. There Andrew was offered ten acres of land in what is now the heart of Cincinnait for his one precious horse. He would not trade and went on north and made a home on the Big Miami River, near what is now Hamilton, Ohio in Butler County. he settled near Cold Rain Fort, so called by the Soldiers who suffered there from the cold rains and sleet. While living in Ohio, Simon Gerty, a dangerous renegade white man, who fought in company with the Indians and was worse than they were, came more than once to Andrew Shirk's home. The latter finally had to fight him in defense of himself, family and home. In about 1810 Andrew decided to move one county to the west in a zone that later became Franklin County, Indiana, when Indiana was almost entire wilderness, except places along the Ohio River and up the Wabash in the Vincennes zone. Andrew filed on land and made a comfortable home and raised his family there, when some of them were partly grown. His old homestead is owned by a descendant now. Several of his descendants, mainly those descended from his son Samuel, became very prominent wealthy people, some being in the millionaire class. Central PA Marriages 1700-1886.

Those are records of service in the Rifle Regiment and the 10th PA Regiment. Andrew Shirk (Sherrick) Biographical Data , compiled by Lyle R. Sherk, in 1732-Sherk-Shirk Freundschaft-1982, by Lyle Ronald Sherk, ed by Mary L. Shirk (Denver; Dingerson Press, 1982?), p. 17, has some inaccuracies but may contain valuable data - 'Andrew Shirk was the youngest child of Casper and Magdalena Sherrick. He was born at Sherksville 7 Sep 1753 and was 16 when his father died. He lived with his older brother, Casper Sherk, Jr., until he was of adult age. he enlisted in the Revolut onary War on 5 Jan 1776, much to the chagrin of his mother. He served with various groups in the war, seeing his final service as Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown. At that time he was a soldier under Gen. Nathaniel Greene. After the war Andrew went south and settled near Augusta, GA, where he met and married Martha Hamilton, of Irish heritage. They remained in GA for several years and their eight children were born there. Prior to 1806 the family with a caravan numbering 100 people, decided to move north. They went first to Kentucky, but, as Andrew was opposed to slavery, did not remain there long. After losing 11 horses to Indian raids in Kentucky, Andre rode his remaining horse to Cincinnati, then a small trading post of twenty inhabitants. he journeyed north from Cincinnati, following the Whitewater River and in 1806 entered land in now Franklin County, Indiana. During their journey from Georgia the older children rode on horseback and the younger ones were carried in baskets over pack saddles. The land Andrew settled in Indiana was located about six miles east of Brookville, FRanklin County, IN. Andrew again was called into military service in the War of 1812, with the rank of major, from territorial governor Jennings. Andrew and members of his family were highly respected members of their community and many of his descendants became succesful land owners, businessmen and attorneys. Andrew suffered for many years from a gunshot wound in his leg, sustained during the war. he died on 14 Jan 1829 and is buried at Big Cedar Grove Baptist Church, Franklin County, IN, which he and his family helped build. 1732-Sherk-Shirk Freundschaft-1982, by Lyle Ronald Sherk, ed by Mary L.
