Andrew Lytle died on July 21, 1856, and he is buried in Oakland Cemetery. His stone has a chain with three links, which is an emblem associated with the International Order of Odd Fellows and symbolizes friendship, love, and truth. The nine pointed star on Andrew Lytle's tombstone may be a reference to the 8th degree of the Scottish Rite, a Masonic organization. Andrew Lytle appears in the Erie County 1850 Census, and his occupation was listed as a bookkeeper. His wife's name was Amanda. FamilySearch pulls up a marriage between Andrew Lytle and Amanda Blakster in Lorain County, Ohio on August 15, 1838.
