Andrew Jackson Aistrop (22 Jan. 1832-1863)

A. J. Aistrop was a son of Lorenzo D. Aistrop (1812-1838), a slave trader of Nelson County, Virginia, and his wife, Sarah E. Woody (b. ca. 1810). Lorenzo, the father, died at the age of 26 while on a trading trip to Mississippi. (Nelson County Chancery Records)

A. J. attended the University of Virginia in session 29 (1852-1853) and studied law. (While at U.Va. his guardian was his older brother, Edward P. Aistrop.) He established a law practice in the Nelson county seat, Lovingston. In 1856, he married Nicy Digges. They had three children, Andrew, Lorenzo Dow, and Bettie E. Aistrop.

When the Civil War broke out, A. J. enlisted in Capt. Spencer’s Company, Col. Porter’s Brigade, Genl. J. R. Anderson’s Division, CSA. He “died in Nelson Co. in Spring of 1863 from Typhoid Fever contracted while mail carrier for the camp at Richmond.” (Nicey A. Aistrop, Act of 1888 Pension Applications)

[Note: A. J. Aistrop’s birth date is from the U.Va. Matriculation Books. I should also note that there is another Andrew Jackson Aistrop living in Washington County, Va. about this same time, and the two men are sometimes confused in the records. —JLC]
