This is my great-great-grandfather, Andrew Jackson Godfrey, better known as A.J. or Jack. He was a druggist and grocer born in 1840 in Kent County, Michigan. Andrew was one of the first settlers in the town of Burr Oak, Kansas and he built the first house there.Â He enlisted in the Civil War in the Union Army, Company B, Seventeenth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He was elected the first County Commissioner from his district in 1871, the First Justice of the Peace in Burr Oak in 1870, and was an active member of the Masonic Order.
