The Andrews family moved to Rome, North Carolina District, Floyd County, Georgia, in 1851 or early 1852. They had lived in Troup, Butte (Butts), and Macon Counties, Georgia, and in Chambers County, Alabama, prior to their move to Floyd County.

Samuel Andrews was a farmer in Floyd County, Georgia and raised cotton for a livelihood. There were plenty of wild turkeys and possums. The people had to weave their own cloth and make their own clothes as there were no factories. Grandpa Andrews [Samuel] would make turkey traps and would catch from 1 to 4 turkeys at one time. There was a large river close by their home [the Coosa], it would only take a short time to catch an eel. They were fish, but looked like a large snake. There were many other kinds of choice fish. Samuel Andrews sold the 296-acre farm to J.P. Stevens on Sept. 10, 1869. The Andrews, Hall, and Beasley families moved to Utah via an immigrant wagon train in 1869.

Prior to the outbreak of the War for Southern Independence the Andrews family lived on a 296-acre farm at the southwest end of Horseleg Mountain about 5 miles outside of downtown Rome. Samuel Andrews was listed as the owner of Lot 264 (160 acres) and part of Lot 263 (136 acres). The Andrews had sold 41-1/2 acres of lot 263 to T. S. Price on June 20, 1859 and 80 acres of lot 290 to Raymond Sanford on Jan 12, 1854.

The 1860 U.S. Census indicates that Samuel Andrews' real estate was valued at $2,100, and the value of his personal estate was $1,500. Samuel Andrews was also listed as the owner of 10 slaves in 1860.
