ANDREW C. PAIST

 

 ANDREW C. PAIST, of Buckingham, was born and reared on the farm he now owns and which had been the property of both his father and grandfather, on February 14, 1855.  He is the oldest son of J. Monroe and Elizabeth (CONNARD) PAIST, and grandson of Jonathan and Sidney (BRADSHAW) PAIST, of Buckingham.  He remained on the farm with his parents until 1889, when he went to Illinois, where he spent two and a half years on a farm in McHenry county, returning to Buckingham in October, 1892.  The next six years he spent on the home farm with his parents, until after the death of his mother in 1898, when he entered the employ of William WATSON, of Buckingham, for one year.  On December 25, 1899, he married Mary RINIKER, daughter of Jacob and Elizabeth RINIKER, of Buckingham, both natives of Switzerland.  Having purchased their present home, they removed thereon the following spring, and have since resided there, devoting their attention to agricultural pursuits.  In the spring of 1903, he purchased the homestead farm where he was born and reared.  He is a member of Kittatinning Lodge, No. 88, I. O. R. M., of Danboro, and in politics is a Republican.  Mr. and Mrs. PAIST have no children.
