Clayton County Register, Thur., 11 July 1935.
Andrew J. Nading was born in Littleport, Iowa, on January 31, 1865. He was the son of John Nading and his wife, Margaret, who were early pioneers, being among the first settlers in Clayton county. They came from Carolina in that early day by flat boat and ox team. He was married to Julia Hines at Elkader, Iowa, on January 14, 1892. There were no children born to this union but he proved a loving father to the two children of his wife by a former marriage. The greatest share of his life was spent in Clayton county until 25 years ago when he moved to Dubuque and secured work with the Milwaukee railroad. Eight years ago he was forced to retire due to ill heath. Several months ago he was taken ill and taken to the hospital. It was while there he was baptized by the Rev. Frankhauser, confessing his faith in Christ and receiving the communion shortly after Easter. As weeks passed he gave witness to the fact that he was ready to die. After a long and painful illness he departed this life on July 2, 1935, at his home in Dubuque at the age of 70 years, six months and two days.
