About Unknown Andrews

File 2003-060/019 (8) in York University's Sheldon and Judy Godfrey Collection (http://archivesfa.library.yorku.ca/filelist/2003-060.435.htm) is titled "Abraham Andrews, in Halifax 1751-1756, brother-in-law of Israel, Isaac and Emanuel Abrahams." In their book "Search Out the Land: The Jews and the Growth of Equality in British Colonial America, 1740-1867" (Montreal, 1995), the Godfreys state in footnote 35, p. 268, "Either Andrews's first wife was a sister of the Abrahams or Emanuel Abrahams's wife (Bilah) and Abraham Andrews's wife were sisters. Andrews and his first wife had a child named Rachel, b. in Boston, 22 February 1753." In their narrative, the Godfreys write "Israel Abrahams's partner Joseph Jones "was married to Judith, who was Jewish and was likely a sister of the Abrahams," and that Abraham Andrews "was married to a Jewish woman who was probably another sister of the Abrahams. . . ." Stern (American Jewish Archives) does not show any sisters of Emanuel and Isaac in the Abrahams family tree (but then, neither does he show Israel).
