  • Notes 
    • Jens Peter Andersen, son of Andrew and Catherine Jensen, was born in Gamelstrop, Velborg County, Denmark, January 4, 1826. During the early part of his life he served an apprenticeship and learned the trade of a miller. In his early manhood, he served nineteen months in the army in his native land. For this service he received a pension during the latter part of his life of $18 per month.
      In 1852 he married May Jacobson, also a native of Denmark. Together they joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on November 5, 1852. While crossing the North Sea, en route to Utah, their only child, Wilhelemine, died and was buried in at sea. They crossed the plains with ox teams in Captain Olsen’s Company, and soon after arriving in Salt Lake City his wife died.
      Jens met with a serious accident while working on a canal that was being constructed for irrigation purposes. A landslide came down upon him and he was completely buried. The fast work of his comrades with pick and shovel was the only means of saving his life. His hip was crushed and he was compelled to walk on crutches for two years. He never completely recovered from this accident but was lame for the rest of his life.
      On February 23, 1855, Jens married Rebecca Christiana Friis Svenssen (widow of Johannes Svenssen). She had one child, a daughter, when they were married. November 28, 1855, their son James Peter Andersen was born and in 1856 they moved to Ephraim where Jens built a home and was engaged in farming for a number of years. He was then called to assist in settling Sevier County and accordingly moved to the small town of Glenwood where he built another home and again took up farming as a means of livelihood.
      After living in Glenwood for two years, he, together with all the residents of this small town was driven out by the Indians, being compelled to leave everything. He again returned to Ephraim where he assisted in building the old Ephraim Fort as a means of protection from the Indians. He served as guard during the Black Hawk War and also assisted by herding horses and cattle during this trouble.
      He was left a widower for the second time when Rebecca died on November 24, 1866, at Ephraim. He then married his third wife, Maria Jenson Peterson (widow of Peter Peterson) and they had eight children born to them in Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah.
      Throughout his life in Utah, Jens followed the occupation of farming and in this work he was one of the most successful in his town. He was always a very active member in the church, striving at all times to live up to his church duties. In public affairs he was always ready to do his share, never shirking any duty, which he considered legitimate. His moral standards were high, having never indulged in any bad habits or in but that which was praiseworthy. He was always a good provider and worked hard throughout his life that his family might enjoy the best that was to be had. He had good sight and at the age of eighty-four could read the paper without glasses.
      After a long and useful life he died at the age of eight-five, December 11, 1910, in Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah.
