ANDREW B. KERR, miller and millwright, P.O. Titusville, was born Aug. 16th, 1855, in Kerr's Hill, Oil Creek Township, this county. His father, William Kerr, one of the oldest pioneers of the township, and as on of Andrew Kerr, is also a native of this township.

They have two sons: Arthur N. Kerr and Stanley A. Kerr. In Feb, 1884, a partnership was formed consisting of Albert B. Kerr, Garrett B. Kerr, Hugh Jamison and James W. Crawford, for the purpose of carrying on a mill near Titusville on the Buffalo, New York & Philadelphia Railroad. They erected a new building and fitted it up with machinery. The mill was opened in May, and by strict attention to business principles they are building up a large and flourishing custom. Mr. and Mrs. Kerr are consistant members of the Presbyterian Church. He is an earnest supporter of the Prohibition party, and at the County Convention in April, 1884, was nominated as their candidate for Prothonotary. Garrett B.
