History of Henry Malmgren

Contributor: trishkovach Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

HISTORY OF HENRY MALMGREN Compiled by his son, Dean Malmgren Henry was born on July 22, 1871, at Levan, Utah to Swen Peter and Johanna Rosequest Malmgren. He was the fifth child of twelve children. Siblings older than Henry were John Peter (who died as a baby), Swen Edwin, Amanda Josephine and Johanna Cecelia (who died as a baby). Siblings younger than Henry were Rosetta Ingaborg (who died as a child), Emma Ottomena, Mary Rosanell, Herman Albert (who died as a child), Minnie Amelia, Oscar Lawrence, and Jennie V. He attended grade school at Levan. As a boy, he worked on the farm for his Dad. At a very young age, he was required to go out and make a living for himself. He was a hard worker and very dependable. When Henry was 14 or 15 years of age, Luke McCarty and he went into Wyoming and worked on a cattle ranch for a few years. Later, he had a freight outfit to haul freight to the mines in Nevada until the railroad came through with a branch line and put him out of business. He then hired a good horse trader and traveled around to dispose of his horses. At the age of 27, his brother Edwin and he ran a pack train in Opher, Colorado. They had about a dozen burros tied together, one behind another, loaded with boxes and sacks of food. They would take this up to the miners and bring the burros back loaded with ore to take to the railroad cars. They did this for two or three years. A sister was cook and housekeeper for them. After this, he worked in mines at Bingham Canyon, Utah; Eureka, Utah; Telluride, Colorado; and Goldfield, Nevada. Sometimes he was luck and had outside jobs. Later he worked as a foreman. While working in Goldfield, he met his wife, Sophia Jane (Jean) Smith. Jean was cooking for the men at the camp. They were married December 23, 1912 in Salt Lake City at Henry’s sister Minnie’s home. They went to Los Angeles, California for their honeymoon. This included a trip to Catalina Island and a ride in the glass bottom boat. They went back to Goldfield where he continued to work in the mines. Jean went back to Spanish Fork, Utah in September and Henry went in October just before their son Henry Dean was born on October 18, 1913 at Jean’s parents’ home. After the baby was born, they moved back to the mines. Henry worked and saved all he could toward buying a farm. Henry, Jean and baby Dean moved to Ruby Valley, Nevada in 1914 where they purchased a farm. Their outfit consisted of what household articles they could haul on their wagon. They had four good horses and a plow. That first winter they lived in a tent. They were able to keep warm with a good hot fire from sagebrush. The soil was very fertile and the brush grew to six feet tall. They prepared the land and had wheat planted for 1915. When the wheat started to grow, the rabbits moved in and kept it cropped to the ground. They had to build a rabbit proof fence around the 160 acres of land for the next year. Henry worked what time he could spare from the farm in the mines at Ely, Nevada as he had the winter before. DeEtte was born 3 July 1915 at Ruby Valley, Nevada under anything but ideal conditions. The nearest Doctor was at least twenty miles away and traveled by horse and buggy. Jean swore she would never have another baby under such conditions. In 1916, they raised a good crop. They were able to build on to their house. They also purchased a few necessities to make their home more comfortable. Jean went to Spanish Fork in February and Esther was born 23 March 1917 in the Smith home. A late frost that year took their entire crop and again things looked very discouraging. Henry was still working in the mine at Ely when possible to leave the farm. The crop situation looked good in 1918. Henry had already been looking at a farm in the Twin Falls area and liked what he found. They were able to sell the Ruby Valley farm and bought 160 acres at Amsterdam, Idaho. They moved all of their belongings by horse and wagon. On December 26, 1918 a daughter, Ruby LaRue was born in Amsterdam. Then heartbreak struck. On January 29, 1919, twenty-two month old Esther fell into the cistern by the corral and drown. This cistern was used to store water for the livestock to drink. Jean was drawing water for the livestock; her attention was directed to them momentarily. Esther toppled into the cistern while Jean’s back was turned. Jean rescued her as soon as possible, but could not revive her. She was buried in Twin Falls, Idaho on January 31, 1919. They worked hard and were able to pay off the extra money borrowed for a down payment on the farm. This just left the regular payments. Preparing for the spring of 1921, Henry cleared more of the land to plant. Had he lived one more year, he would probably had the whole farm under cultivation. This was not to be. Henry died suddenly, May 30, 1921 in Amsterdam, Idaho of pulmonary tuberculosis. No doubt, the hardships of the last seven years had hurried his death. He was buried June 2, 1921 in the Spanish Fork Cemetery.

Henry Malmgren was 14 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
