Heroes of Albany - Andrew W. Kellogg

From Helderberg Hilltowns of Albany County, NY

ANDREW W. KELLOGG, of Knox, a private in the Havelock Battery, son of Amos and Lucy Kellogg, was born in Florida, Schenectady county, New York, on June 12, 1822. He experienced religion at Northampton, Fulton county, New York, in 1848 and united with the Presbyterian Church of that place. He was, up to the time of his death, a useful and active member. Pure patriotism induced him to leave faily and friends, and unite with the many brave defenders of his country; and he enlisted in the Havelock Battery, November 11, 1861. His battery was in the battle of Manassas Junction, but his health was too poor to admit of his participating in the same. He died at the Marine hospital, of small pox, June 1, 1863, and to the last moment, was constantly urging those around him, to prepare for death. He was buried near the hospital.
