Title Early History-Business-Industries in Our Town
Description succeed. A city where other fine people would like to live . . . thus a growing, thriving community. It is said, "Necessity is the Mother of Inventions!" How true! For as the city population grew, many things were needed: more homes to be built, church buildings, school, place for entertainment, food to be raised, clothing to be made. All these things were brought about by these industrious people . . . wilh talents of helpfulness, cooperation, loyalty, desire to improve . . . thus, industries and businesses thrived as did the people. Soon there were sawmills, flour mills, store, brick-making, dairies, yes, and hotels . . . many people going through needed a place to stay ovemighl, and meals. Whatever was needed was begun, and done well. SHEEP INDUSTRY: One of the earliest industries was that of sheep and wool . . . naturally needed for food and clothing as well as a livelihood. The sheep industry in Utah was started from the small bands of sheep brought across the plains by the early pioneers, and gave both the men, women and even children opportunity lo work and to do their best. Sheep had to be shorn of their wool. Women washed, carded and spun the wool . . . many activities to be engaged in. One of the first to raise sheep here in this new community was Anders Jensen Aagard, known as Andrew James Aagard, bom January 15, 1844, in Denmark. When he was 16, the family joined the Church and came to Utah in I860, and in 1863, to Fountain Green. Mr. Aagard married Anne (Ane) Jensen who was also bom in Denmark.
