Administrative/Biographical History
Paraphrased from Beers' Biographical Annals of Lebanon County (1904), p. 328-330: Andrew Kreider was president of the Annville National Bank.  Son of David Kreider, Andrew grew up on a South Annville farm and attended country schools and Annville Academy (now Lebanon Valley College).  Andrew began a career in lumber and real estate before helping to establish the Annville Savings Bank, which became the Annville National Bank.  On May 29, 1866, he married Emma L. Miller of North Annville.  He was heavily involved in nurturing the growth of Lebanon Valley College, which all of his children (Sallie, Raymond, Edwin, Anna E.) attended.  He was "very justly regarded as the town's leading and most useful citizen."
