ANDREWS, Timothy Patrick, soldier, born in Ireland in 1794; died 11 March 1868. During the war of 1812, when Barney's flotilla, in Patuxent River, was confronting the enemy, he tendered his services without the knowledge of his father, was employed by the commodore as his aide, and rendered important services. He subsequently was in active service in the field, and in 1822 appointed paymaster in the army. In 1847 he resigned to take command of the regiment of voltigeurs raised for the Mexican war. He was distinguished in the battle of Molino del Rey, and brevetted a Brigadier-General for gallant and meritorious conduct in the battle of Chapultepec. On the close of the war and the disbandment of the voltigeurs, he was reinstated, by act of congress, as paymaster, and in 1851 was made deputy paymaster-general. During the civil war, on the death of General Lamed, Colonel Andrews succeeded him as paymaster-general of the army. He was retired 20 November 1864.
