About this title


This is a transcription of the autobiography of Mormon pioneer Peter Madsen (1818-1910), who emigrated from Denmark to Utah in 1853 with the first company of Danish pioneers. The transcription is fully annotated and is accompanied by photos and other supplemental material, including a list of Madsen's descendants, obituaries, and profiles of some of his children. Originally published by EveryWare Books in 2004.

About the Author:

Peter Madsen was born in Torslunde ("Thor's Grove"), Denmark (42 miles west of Copenhagen), in 1818. He was trained as a wagon maker and carpenter, and he converted to the LDS Church in 1851. He married Ellen Nielsen in 1852, and in 1853 they emigrated to Utah with the first group of Danish pioneers. Peter and Ellen were sent to help settle Utah's Sanpete Valley, and in 1854, Peter helped found (and is credited with naming) the settlement at Ephraim. Begun in 1898, Peter's autobiography describes his life in Denmark, his religious conversion, and his journey and adventures in the Utah territory. He recounts his service in the Black Hawk War with native Americans, his polygamous marriages, his carpentry work on the Mormon temples at Manti and St. George, his visits to Salt Lake City, and many other stories. He also describes his family. Peter died in 1910 at age 91, survived by his second wife, Trine, and six children. He is buried with his two wives in Ephraim's old pioneer cemetery. His autobiography also includes a poem he wrote in Danish.
