Descendants of Andrew Bierwirth
(1821-1902)
Rensselaer County, NY

Andreas W. Bierwirth (b. 1/18/1821, d. 1902) was a descendant of George Beroward, an officer in Sweden's King Gustav Adolph's army who settled in the area of "Germany" about 1630 following the Swedish conquest of "German" (Prussian) territory. Andreas (Andrew) himself was an immigrant, coming to America from "Germany" with his first wife Antoinette (Rudolph) Bierwirth and their six children in 1861. Settling in Petersburgh, NY, in eastern Rensselaer County, his homestead is listed on an 1876 map of Petersburgh. (Scroll down to bottom of map, see "A. Bierwirth" beneath "Dist. No. 2".) It appears that Andrew and Antoinette divorced at some point (date unknown) and he travelled back to Germany for a visit. Soon after he returned, his second wife, Rena Cordes, also from Germany, arrived with his son, Alec. She, it is told, then became homesick for her homeland; consequently, he agreed to let her return to Germany, but she could not take the child with her. He married his third wife Florence Myrtle Cook (see photo below) about 1894, he being in his mid-70's and she around fourteen, and had three more sons by her, Charles, Otto, and Joseph. Andrew died in 1902, and is buried in a small family cemetery near the original Bierwirth farm property now listed as the "Petersburgh -Amos Babcock" cemetery.

"Lydia (Vincent) LaMere whose mother was Theresa (Bierwirth) Vincent Freund, told me many years ago that her Bierwirth ancestor came from Germany in the mid-nineteenth century. He was a musician and became a member of Doring's Band of Troy, NY. She said his brother was a stowaway on the same ship. Like many other German families who settled in rural Renssealer County, they soon intermarried with families already there. Other related names are Church, O'Dell and Nugent." - excerpt from "The Families of Petersburgh, NY," ©1991 by Hilda M. Allen, p. 4.
