Anders Nielsen's Trip to America

Contributor: AmyCrow Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Anders Nielsen* a son Alfred and a daughter Elna (#515-517 below) left from Denmark on the steam ship Milo. Then they joined other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to immigrate to Utah. On June 2, 1888 they left Liverpool England on the steamer SS Wisconsin traveling to New York. *Anders Nielsen was the correct Danish patronymic name (meaning ‘son of Niels’) as used during this time period. Anders eventually changed his name to Anders Nielsen Andersen when he came to Utah. Thus beginning the stability to the Andersen name. This is a narrative of the trip to Utah on the same trip that Anders Nielsen Andersen and his 2 children took in 1888. Record made for Church History records. Reading this you can see what Anders and his 2 children went through. Liverpool to New York Ship: Wisconsin Departure: 2 Jun 1888 Arrival: 13 Jun 1888 Church Leader: C.A.

R. Dorius - June 12, 1888 A Compilation of General Voyage Notes "Saturday, June 2nd, 202 of our emigrants from Scandinavia, and eight missionaries, sailed in the Guion S. S. Wisconsin, in charge of Elder C. A. Dorius. We pray that the preserving care of God may be manifest towards these his children, in their journey Zionward, as it has hitherto been mercifully rendered to the many companies who have preceded them." "Sat. 2. [June 1888] ... The steamship Wisconsin sailed from Liverpool, England, with a company of Saints, in charge of Charles R. Dorius. The company arrived at New York June 13th, and part of the emigrants in Salt Lake City June 19th." ". . . The season's first emigrating company of Latter-day Saints from Scandinavia sailed from Copenhagen, May 24, 1888, with the steamship 'Milo,' under the leadership of Elder Peter C. Geertsen. The company numbered 102 souls, Danish and Swedish Saints. Six elders from Zion, who had labored faithfully and successfully in the Scandinavian Mission, returned to their homes with this company, namely: Peter C. Geertsen (who had labored as a writer for 'Skandinaviens Stjerne'), Jens Hansen, Pehr Hakanson, Svante J. Koeven and Charles R. Dorius. After a pleasant voyage the emigrants arrived at the harbor of Hull, England, on the 27th in the afternoon. They landed the following morning (May 28th) and proceeded by rail to Liverpool, where they, an hour after their arrival, were joined by a small company of emigrating Saints from Norway. The Norwegian contingent of the company (24 souls) sailed from Christiania, Norway, May 25, 1888, in charge of Louis J. Holther, who returned from a mission to Scandinavia. The little company had a safe passage across the North Sea to England. Together with the other emigrants and returning elders from the British Mission, the Scandinavians went on board the steamship 'Wisconsin,' sailed from Liverpool, June 2nd, and, after a safe voyage, arrived in New York, June 13th. From New York the westward journey was continued and part of the company arrived in Salt Lake City, June 19th. One death occured on the voyage, that of an infant daughter of a Swedish lady named Anderson. From New York the company proceeded by coast steamer to Norfolk, Virginia , on the 8th, and arrived in Salt Lake City, August 15th, having traveled by rail from Norfolk, Virginia. . . . " Back to Top Journal of Peter Christian Geertsen . . . Friday, June 1st - Early in the morning [C. R.] Dorius and I went to Islington and were directed to the Guion Line office by President Teasdale who introduced us to Mr. Ramsden. In the afternoon [p. 25] the Saints were taken to the ship S. S. Wisconsin. When we got to steamer it was discovered that a child belonging to a widow had the measles. She was taken back to the hotel. Missionaries arrived from Utah. Saturday, 2nd - I went to a hotel where I found Louis Shurtlef from Ogden. Afterwards I went to the office and attended to some business connected with the emigration, after which Elder Dorius and I left for the steamer. We came on board about 12 a.m. just as the emigrants was passing the doctor. [p. 26] President Teasdale came in at 2 p.m. and bid us goodbye. Mr. Ramsden introduced me to the captain as being one of the leaders of the company of Saints. Soon after 2 p.m. we started on our journey. The weather was fine and we commenced our voyage under favorable circumstances. We affected an organization dividing the Saints into three wards with three presidents and two assistants. This gave good satisfaction. We also imparted some instructions as to the way in which to receive their provisions. Sunday, 3rd - I wrote a letter to [President] Flygare, which was mailed at our arrival at Queenstown. [p. 27] 11 a.m. we laid still about an hour and took on more passengers and some landed. About night we were out at sea and left land out of sight. Monday, 4th - Was a day for general [p. 28] seasickness. I was a little sick too, but ate at every meal. Some of our people being sick, was through the kindness of the purser removed to second cabin rooms. We administered to them and they felt better. I had a good night's rest. Tuesday, 5th - Was a very fine day, the sea being entirely calm and we made a good run. Wednesday, 6th - We had a heavy head wind which hindrance [p. 29] ******** our progress and we made nearly 40 miles less than the day before. At night we had a meeting in which I spoke encouraging to the Saints and gave them some instructions. Thursday, 7th - The weather came out very fine and calm and all felt to rejoice. Friday, 8th - This was also a very fine day and it passed very agreeable with all passengers. I visited the sick and administered to some. [p. 30] Saturday, 9th - When I woke up I found the ship standing still, something being wrong with the air pump. It was foggy. At 7 a.m. we again started to sail. I took a trip round to the sick and found they was all better. Sunday, 10th - We had two meetings with the Saints and the Spirit of God was richly poured out upon us. Monday, 11th - We made a collection for the stewards and [p. 31] imparted some instructions privately to the Saints concerning our landing in Castle Garden. Tuesday, 12th - I was engaged in writing some testimonies also to the good treatment of the captain, purser, chief steward, & doctor. I also wrote a letter to President Flygare. Wednesday, 13th - At daybreak as I woke I found we were in the mouth of the river going in towards New York. [p. 32] We soon got the quarantine doctor on board and passed. After we had went a little farther the customs officers came and passed upon our names, each giving up what good he hand. We then were landed in the dock and when the goods had been examined we were sent to Castle Garden and with little difficulty got off onto the steamer that should take us to the city of Norfolk, Virginia. On this trip the elders had good treatment. [p. 33] Thursday, 14th - At five p.m. we landed in Norfolk and was immediately put on the cars and started off in fast time. Friday, 15th - We got to Bristol about 9 a.m. where we changed cars. The conductor on the last division before we got to Chattanooga was very cross and ugly and run the train with fire in two of the cars blazing so that the Saints got much frightened, but fortunately there was nobody hurt. When we got to Chattanooga, an agent [p. 34] accompanied us to Memphis. Saturday, 16th - We landed in Memphis about 8 a.m. and had to change cars again. We got another agent along and in a short time we were off again. We went over the Mississippi River and passed through a part of Arkansas State, which was very fine. Sunday, 17th - Early in the morning we came to Kansas City, changed cars, and was divided, a part going on the [p. 35] D & R G [Denver & RioGrande] line and the other over the Union Pacific. I took charge over those going over the first mentioned and Elder Dorius went with the others accompanied by J. Hansen, J. L. Kavin, and Steel. Monday, 18th - We reached Pueblo at 9 a.m., changed cars, and left at 11 having supplied us with bread and other eatables. We now passed through two very remarkable places, the Grand Canyon and Marshall Pass where we arrived about night. [p. 36] Tuesday, 19th - When I woke up we found ourselves in the desert with a desolate looking appearance which continued till we reached the Mormon settlements, but not altogether till we got in Southern Utah County. Here appeared life and thrift. We reached Salt Lake City at half past 7, being met by brethren from the tithing office. I went and stayed by Wiesbergs. . . . [p. 37] BIB: Geertsen, Peter Christian.

The day we left Queenstown, and the day following, the vessel rolled considerably, causing much sickness, but it did not last long. Take it all through, we have had a fine voyage and been much blessed of the Lord, [p.429] who has heard and answered our prayers and blessed us in our administrations. We have great reason to rejoice and feel thankful to our Heavenly Father for all his goodness. The captain, purser and officers have been exceedingly kind to us and considerate to the sick. We held several meetings with the Saints, enjoying the good influence of the Spirit of God. When we passed the doctor we had to show certificates of vaccination. Some had none to show, so they had to be vaccinated on board. New York, June 13th. We have passed through the Custom House and Castle Garden. Mr. Gibson was very kind, giving us all the information needed. We are very grateful and everything is satisfactory.

Story of Grandpa Andersen's temple and family history record book.

Contributor: AmyCrow Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

January 28, 2011 To: Anders Nielsen Andersen Ancestors: Richard L. Andersen (grandson of Anders and Trine Andersen); Linda Smith Bennett (great granddaughter or Anders and Louise Andersen); Richard Ambrose (great grandson of Anders and Louise Andersen) From: Robert Smith (Great Grandson if Anders and Louise Andersen) All: Many decades ago I received a book from my mother, Louise Mary Wade, which book I believe she received from her mother, Adeline Andersen. It is a journal like book titled: L.D.S. Family And Individual Record, published in 1921 by Deseret Book Company. This book was written in by Anders Nielsen Andersen or as he records: “This book belongs to AN Andersen and what here in recorded is done by him.” At the time this book was handed down to Adeline she was the only active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints among Anders’ children. He had a strong testimony of the Gospel and we can assume passed this record to the person who it would mean the most to. When I received this book I spend many hours, days, years trying to figure it out. It was helpful in establishing early PAF family tree records for me. Then with the online Family Search and New Family Search we have a whole new world opened to us. It is also time to have others see this book and then between us we can figure out what is accurate or not. Problems: For example on page 26B it is recorded: “Louise Vade married to William Clover” Which is not right as her name was Wade and she was married to my father LeRoy F Smith. Further, Evelyn Hill was married to Floyd Clover… She is also listed on the same page, but no marriage note. So there are errors in his records. Much of what he did was from memory I am sure. Add that to his Danish-English spellings and we have a fun record to work on. So this book is now preserved in a jpg file that can be copied and passed on to you and other family members. Let us be careful on what “we” do from this point on in changing the records in the New Family Search. We should look to this as a starting point and not an exact record. Let’s share findings and let’s keep building on the Andersen family and its history. This disk also includes the Church News story that Richard Andersen had printed back in Sept 2005. That is how he and I first connected. Enjoy the book! Robert B. Smith 610-269-4009
