Title Andrew
Description been stolen from Johnston's Army and sold all over the territory, some hapless settlers having traded all their cattle in exchange In September of 1868 President Brigham Young and a number of other church dignitaries visited Mt. Pleasant A suitable wagon, drawn by four of the finest horses available, was prepared and driven by Andrew and his brother-in-law Rasmus Frandsen. They took the Mt. Pleasant Brass Band to Fountain Green where they met the President's party, then led the procession back to town, via Moroni, while the band, under the direction of James Hansen, furnished the music. Over the ensuing years Andrew and his brothers worked tirelessly for the common good of the community, some even being called to help settle other towns, one brother paid another pioneer to accept the call from him so he could remain in Mt. Pleasant. The Madsens were investors in the first steam-powered saw mill, mowing machine, hay bailer, threshing machine, binder and reaper, molasses mill, and piano brought to their valley. Andrew was co-founder and later owner of several mercantile establishments, one of which was the Union Mercantile Company, organized in 1903 by Andrew and his three sons, C W Anderson (Andrew's brother-in-law), and Olaf E. Olson. Andrew served on the city council continuously from 1870 through 1892, was the first city treasurer and, in 1877, was elected selectman from the north end of Sanpete County. In 1874, about nineteen years after he left, Andrew wrote to a cousin in Denmark: Mount Pleasant, Sanpete County. Utah Territory, January 21, 1874 Dearly Beloved Cousin: I feel like writing a few lines to you and your family inasmuch as it is too distant for me to visit 86
