His grandfather, Johan Philip Bossert, immigrated from Alsace, Germany, in 1729 and settled at Bossardsville, Monroe county, immediately below the Delaware Water Gap, in 1745, where he purchased a tract of land from the sons of William Penn. Andrew there grew to manhood, and learned the trade of cabinet-making. On February 22, 1804, he married Nancy Hammond, a sister of the late John Hammond, of Elkland, and settled upon a farm about two miles from Bossardsville, where he remained until 1809, when he removed to Chemung county, New York, locating near Elmira. In 1813 he came to the Cowanesque valley and settled on the Bosard homestead, in Osceola, where he practiced the arts of husbandry for many years. In 1814, during the War of 1812, he enlisted in the army, but was never mustered into actual service. He died in Osceola on August 20, 1858. His wife, Nancy Hammond, was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, April 4, 1784, and died in Osceola on November 24, 1839. Their children were as follows: James Huntington, Alvers, Emma, Maria, Arthur F., Andrew Keller, Melchior De Pui, Nancy and Peter. Alvers Bosard succeeded to the homestead, and his widow and daughter now occupy the same. James Huntington, Emma and Nancy died in 1834, 1831 and 1836, respectively. Maria married Henry C. Bosworth, in 1843, and lived for some time at Smithfield, Pennsylvania, but removed to Osceola about 1852, and resided there until her death, in 1870.
