  • Notes 
    • "Burke's Presidential Families" says that Andrew only had two sons. His first wife was Frances Garnett (or Garrett). Ref 2 says Andrew and Frances had two sons.

      Andrew attended William and Mary College in Williamsburg, Virginia.

      Andrew is believed to have purchased a farm near Batesville in 1781, where he lived for four years.

      He served in the Navy during the American Revolutionary War, and moved to Scott County, Kentucky from Albemarle County, Virginia about 1793.

      In 1816 he was living on a farm which his brother, President James Monroe, purchased on Limestone, below Milton.

      The Johnson reference says he may have been born in 1764 and may have died in 1826. Ref 4 says he died in 1828.

      Several references give Andrew's death place as Milton County, Virginia, but there has never been a Milton County, Virginia. Other references say he died in Fauquier County, Virginia.

      There is much confusion and probably a lot of error in this family record. There is another Andrew Monroe [529] married to another Ann Bell in a completely different family line. Is this an error or just an interesting coincidence? Care must be taken here because of the many similar names at about the same time and place.
