The following is from the privately-published, widely-respected work, "Adrian Hegeman and Some of His Descendants," compiled by two of Andrew Brown and Sarah C. (Ross) Hageman's great-granddaughters, sisters Ora Elizabeth Hageman Burnett and Ethel Marie Hageman Mellies. Unfortunately, Ethel has since passed on; Elizabeth survives and has generously given permission to your webmaster to extensively quote their 450+ page "Hageman-Pendleton Genealogy,"1 of which this is one part. We owe these two cousins a great deal for their efforts, and will strive to continue their exemplary work, inspired by their dedication and disciplined labor on behalf of their family.

Andrew Brown Hageman, the youngest child of Isaac Hageman and Maria Vanderveer, was born, 4 April 1824, at Hillsborough, Somerset County, New Jersey. His mother died in 1832, when he was only eight years old. After her death, he moved with his father to Fulton Co., Illinois, where he grew up, and married there, 13 November 1845, Miss Sarah C. Ross, the daughter of Thomas Jefferson Ross, and his wife, Annie Hovey. [p.48] Sarah was born, 29 November 1827, at Olmsted, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio. Andrew, like his father and brother, was a carpenter and a farmer. Andrew and Sarah raised a large family, and moved around quite a bit too! The 1850 and 1860 census finds them in Pike Co., Ill., in '60, Derry Twp., P.O. Eldora; 1870, 1880, and 1900, in Logan Co., Ill., Chester Twp. Sarah made carpets, and was "never without a carpet on the floor." Sometime in her life, probably her later years, she wrote -- "Russell B. Hageman, His Book," "Presented to him by his Father and Mother in 1900." A copy of this book was given to us by our cousin, Lola Hills Titus, to whom we are most grateful. It contains family records of birth, death, marriages, and a delightful story of her life. We, lovingly refer to this book as "Sarah's Book."
Andrew died, 5 March 1903, at the age of 78 yrs. 11 mo. 1 day.
Sarah died, 1 August 1906, at the age of 78 yrs. 8 mo. 3 days.
They are both buried in the Bowers-Templeman Cemetery, in Logan County, Illinois.
