      Andrew Smith Laswell was born in 1808 in Cumberland County, Kentucky, and is buried in Union Chapel Cemetery near Grantsburg, Indiana. It appears that Andrew Laswell died mysteriously and was buried in the old part of Union Chapel Cemetery near Grantsburg, Indiana. At that time, the cemetery was known as "Yates Chapel Cemetery." Since there were no headstones erected and only flagstone was used to mark the grave, no one presently knows where the grave is located in the Cemetery.

      In June 2013, Ron Yates and Elmer Leon Laswell (Andy) visited in the Union Chapel Yates Cemetery. Andy confirmed that his father and his grandfather both certified that Andrew Smith Laswell was found in an isolated location in a field, dead with a shotgun next to him. He was then buried in an unmarked grave at the Yates Family Graveyard aka Union Chapel Yates Cemetery after 1889. Andrew Smith Laswell is the common ancestor grandfather of both Ron Yates and Andy Laswell. 6/8/2013 by Ron Yates

      Andrew married Mary E. (Polly) Crews, about 1836. She was born in 1817 in Monroe County, Kentucky. Andrew was a farmer. After the death of Andrew, Mary E. (Polly) Crews Laswell married Russel King on 23 May 1864 in Crawford County, Indiana. Russel King was born about 1814. Mary was known to her grandchildren as "Granny King." She also went by the name of "Polly."

      Hi Ron hope this finds you ok, this is the tax list of Andrew Smith Laswell in Crawford County, he was here in 1856-1857 no record of any land, have not found any 1858 tax book, Polly shows up in 1859 taxes no land. So…. Andrew may have been alive in 1858, this looks like he died between 1857-59; Just a little info. Buck Laswell10/27/2012
