History in a Pecan Shell

Originally named Stapp for a settler who built a log school/ church building in 1857, the next big event occured in 1876 when store owner Andrew Jackson, was appointed postmaster of the Berry's Creek post office ( which closed after 3 years).

The Reverend Wm. Isaac Newton, applied for a new post office in 1899, submitting the application for his son Audice. The name was misread and the approval came back for Andice.

In 1929 Andice had a population estimated at 150. It reached its zenith in 1931 with about 200 Andicians, then fell to a mere 50 by 1933. In 1941 it was back up to 190, but from 1970 until 1990 it was reported at on 25.
