Notes for HANS Christian Andersen:

Notes on Hans' immigration:

 

Hans traveled to Denmark with his mother in 1912, and remained there until his father returned for him in 1914.  He arrived at Ellis Island on April 29, 1914 after crossing on the "Oceanic" of the White Star Line (the same company which built and owned the "Titanic").  The ship departed for America from Southampton, England, and the trip took five days.  Grandpa Hans said there were 3,000 passengers on the boat.  He wore knee pants and button shoes, but had worn wooden shoes in Denmark.  There were cattle and chickens in the bottom of the boat which were butchered on board.  He remembered sailing into the harbor in New York, and he said that it snowed that day.  He arrived in Dillon on May 5, 1914.

 

Grandpa said that the first words he and Jack learned to say in English were "See my hat."

Obituary for Hans Christian Andersen

 

Hans C. Andersen died Friday at St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula.  Hans was born in Dillon on July 26, 1906, son of Hans and Kirstine Andersen.  At age six, he moved to Denmark with his mother.  He returned to Dillon three years later, after the death of his mother and was raised in Bannack by his father and step-mother who were owners of the Ames Ranch.  He attended Beaverhead County High School in Dillon.

 

He married Georgiana Crouse on August 15, 1933, and was manager of the Ames Ranch which was running 10,000 head of sheep at that time.  The Ames Ranch was sold and Hans leased various ranches until 1942 when he bought 30,000 acres up the Blacktail, southeast of Dillon, which he successfully operated until his retirement in 1975.  Because of his expertise in sheep raising, he produced high quality lambs and wool.

 

After his retirement, Hans enjoyed traveling and spending time with his family.  He was a member of  the First Presbyterian Church and of the Masonic and Shrine orders.  He supported Dillon community activities including Barrett Memorial Hospital and Western Montana College.

 

He is survived by his wife and his four children: Elaine Andersen Peterson, sons and daughters-in-law, Keith and Verla Andersen and Dr. Charles (Mick) and Anne Andersen, daughter and son-in-law Sally and John Kreis and fourteen grandchildren: Greg Peterson, Cynthia Peterson Reedstrom, Cheryl Peterson Schurke, Mike Peterson, Julie Andersen Evans, Scott Andersen, Christine Andersen Mitchell, Kyle Andersen, Christopher, Rachelle, Hans Christian, and Bridget Andersen, Jeff and Heather Kreis.  Additional survivors are brothers Jack and Harry Andersen and sisters Olga Schindler and Christine Peterson and ten great grandchildren.

 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to Barrett Hospital Auxiliary, First Presbyterian Church of Dillon or to the donor's choice.

 

Funeral arrangements are in the care of Brundage Funeral Home with Pastor Freeman McCall officiating on Monday, May 13, 1996 at 11:00 a.m.

How Grammie got her name, a conversation on July 17th, 2002, between Grammie and Aunt Sally, (as recorded in the cookbook Sally made for Gram's 90th birthday celebration):

 

"In my baby book, I am Georgia Elizabeth.  Later they dropped the Elizabeth and changed my name to  Georgiana (G'ana) for my Aunt Georgia and Grandmother Anna.  My nickname was 'Sister.'  Everyone called me Sister-even a family I didn't want to be their sister, but they also called me sister."

Hans Andersen Funeral Is Held Today

 

The funeral of Hans Andersen, 77, was held this afternoon from Brundage Chapel with interment being made in Mountain View Cemetery, Rev. Warren Kunkel was in charge of the service.  Pall bearers were Bert Megquier, Clarence Andersen, Nels Lauritsen, Chris Peterson, Ras Hansen, and C.E. Blinn.

 

Mr. Andersen passed away Friday afternoon in a Butte hospital.  He had been a prominent sheepman of Beaverhead County, coming here from Denmark in 1896.  [He went initially to Elk Horn, Iowa, where he worked with his uncle.] He was born in Aero, Denmark, October 31, 1875.  When he arrived in Beaverhead County he was first employed by the Gilbert Livestock ranch north of Dillon.  After a year he returned to Denmark and married, bringing his bride back to Beaverhead County and forming a partnership with the late J. E. Morse known as the Ames Sheep Company.  Later he continued the sheep business alone at which he was very successful.

 

Mr. Andersen had five children by his first marriage.  Following the death of Mrs. Andersen he remarried and to this union one child was born, the second Mrs. Andersen preceding him in death.

 

Surviving are three sons and two daughters who are Jack Andersen of Alder, Harry Andersen  of Wise River, Hans C. Andersen of Dillon, Mrs. Emil (Olga) Schindler of Jackson, and Mrs. Herbert (Christine) Petersen of Oakland, California.  Grandchildren residing in the community are Elaine, Keith, Charles and Sally Andersen of Dillon and Francis and Barbara Schindler of Jackson.  Grandchildren living in California are Marvin and Kenneth Petersen and Gloria, Ralph and Bernice Pedersen.

 

Mr. Andersen is also survived by sisters and brothers, Mrs. Berg Christensen, Peter, Matt and Albert Andersen of Beaverhead County, Mrs. Matt Groth in California, Andrew Andersen of Canada and Thomas Andersen of Denmark.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Remembrances of Christine Andersen (his daughter):

 

Hans Andersen loved to tease, and had a dry wit, "similar to her brother Jack."  Hans was an excellent dancer and he excelled at wrestling.  She remembers that her Dad was well respected and liked by his workers, and they would often stop by just to visit him, even after they left his employment.  She remembers that he was quite sensitive to animals.  As such he built the first lambing sheds in Beaverhead County.  He loved horses and built a "beautiful" barn at Ames for the horses.  

 

She recalls his generosity to those less fortunate.  One day Jack came into Bannack and saw some lambs being slaughtered in another's family's barn.  He reported it to his Dad, thinking that the animals must have been stolen from their herd.  Her Dad told Jack, "If you were as hungry as that family, you would steal lambs, too."  He never reported the loss, nor criticized the family who took the animals.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Notes for KIRSTINE Rasmussen:

Christine Andersen (her daughter) says that Kirstine was the youngest of the family.  She was not allowed to travel to the U.S. with out her older sister as a chaperone (Magdalena), though she had already married in Denmark.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kirstine was about 3 months pregnant with her fifth child when she returned to Denmark.  She had been told by the doctor in Dillon that she should not have any more children.  She died within hours of giving birth to Christine in May, 1912.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Personal notation from Peter Henningsen, from Aero, Denmark

 

And for the historical records: Today I looked in the church book for the parish of Rise and found out, that Kristine Rasmussen, when she died on Aero in 1912 while visiting with her children, had address in the town of Marstal, where she lived in a street called Møllergade (Miller's Street). This means, that she must have rented a house in Marstal instead of staying with her family in Lille Rise. This also means, that her closest living family connection here was my grandfather, who lived just outside this town, and as he was always keen on people coming home from America with news, I am sure he must have visited her quite a lot.

Notes for Christine Hansine Andersen:

Christine was brought to America by Margareth Eriksen, her step-mother's sister.  They traveled on the "Oscar II" and arrived at Ellis Island on July 20, 1920.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a scanning from the parish register of the town of Marstal from 1912. Here you can see, that Kristine Hansine (named after both her parents as none of them were present at the christening) were baptized at home by the vicar and later presented in church on the 8th of september 1912. Godfathers and godmothers were: Worker Klaus Andersen and his wife, Møllevejen (Miller's road) in Marstal (This must be Hans Andersen's oldest brother Claus); Farmer Thomas Hansen Andersen and his wife in Ærøskøbing (Hans Andersen's brother) and bachelor Mads Olsen Andersen from Lille Rise (Hans Andersens's brother. So he had not migrated to the states at that time. Maybe he went along with his brother Hans when he came to Aero to pick up his children in 1914)

Notes for JOHANNE Kroman:

Christine Andersen says that the Kroman name was adopted later.  She can't remember the original surname.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Conversation with Ib Christensen (historian from Aero) says, "You are probably right that they did not use Kroman as family name, since this originally was a nickname.  Also among siblings you may find some that used Kroman and others that did not.  Often the males would use the nickname and females would not - this differs from family to family - as does the spelling of Kroman. (Kroman, Kromann, or Kromand)  The name means innkeeper, since "Kro" = "Inn" and "mand" = "man" or "person".   The first person that had the nickname was called Kroejer (in Danish Krøjer), which is local dialect for Innkeeper.  The different spellings are caused by the different priests who for the major part, were not from the island, and therefore did not know the local dialect all too well, and therefore had different opinions as to the right spelling.  It is not unusual for a nickname which was often related to a persons occupation, to end up as family name."

In the early spring of 1892, he arrived in Dillon and went to work for Mr. Selway on his ranch that bordered Dillon on the north side in the area where the Lion's Den is now.  He later leased the Billy Gilbert Ranch north of Dillon for two years.  Then John and a Danish friend of his, as partners, operated a dairy on the place now owned by Gayle Chaffin on Grasshopper Creek, and sold milk and butter in Bannack.  After selling the dairy business, like all ambitious young men, he tried the life of a cowboy.  John trailed fat steers from the Big Hole Valley to Butte for the Butte Butcher Co.

 

In 1898 John went to work for J.E. Morse, a rancher with extensive properties and a large sheep operation.  John began working with the sheep and that business soon became his way of life.  He was the sheep foreman for Mr. Morse from 1900 to 1908.

 

John, in partnership with his brother Peter H. Anderson, bought their first two bands of sheep in 1905.  John homesteaded on Carter Creek in Beaverhead County, seven miles east of Dillon, and his brother Pete homesteaded on Robb Creek on the Upper Ruby in Madison County.  Pete managed their sheep while John continued to work for J.E. Morse until 1908, when Mr. Morse sold the operation of which John was in charge to the Beaverhead Ranch Co.  After 1908, the Anderson brothers increased their holdings and purchased the Max Lauterbach Ranch and Livestock.

 

In 1915 John married Egedia Jepsen in Dillon.  They had one son, John Jr. and three daughters Edna, Marie, and Clara.

 

During their partnership, John and Pete continued to expand and bought the Beaverhead Ranch Co.'s holdings in 1918, and the Lower Larbee Ranch and Elling Ranch in 1919.  By 1923, the Andersons had put together a large sheep ranch operating approximately 28.000 head of sheep.  In 1925, John and Pete dissolved the partnership, divided the property, and each continued in the sheep business for himself.

 

John lived in Dillon for 28 years, from 1892 to 1920.  In the fall of 1920, he moved his family south of Alder.  John continued to expand his operation during his lifetime and the ranch is still operated today by his son John H. Anderson, Jr., and family.  The ranch where John and Egidia lived in Alder is the home of son-in-law and daughter Karl L. and Edna Sauerbier.  John H. Anderson died January 6, 1950, at the age of 76.  His wife, Egidia, passed away in October of 1954.

Peter H. Anderson, 75, prominent stockman of the Ruby and Beaverhead valleys was found dead in his Sheridan home by neighbors about 7 o'clock Monday night.  Death was attributed to natural causes.

 

Friends, who went to the Anderson home to investigate when they noticed no sign of activity about the house for a long period, found the premises locked and forced entry.  His nephew, Harry Andersen of Dillon, had gone to Sheridan to visit his uncle and found the door locked.  Presuming Mr. Anderson had gone away, Harry left not knowing that his uncle had passed away.

 

Dr. R. H. Dyer, who was summoned to the home, estimated the elderly stockman had been dead for at least 36 hours.  Mr. Anderson returned home recently to Sheridan from a visit with relatives in California.

 

He was a native of Denmark and had resided in the Ruby Valley since early in the century, making his home in Sheridan for a number of years.  He also had extensive holdings in the Beaverhead Valley.

 

Mr. Anderson's wife, the former Edith Schowe, passed away several years ago.  He was also preceded in death by brothers Hans of Dillon and John of Alder.

Peter Anderson Biography, written by John H. Anderson, Jr. in "Pioneer Trails and Trials" the Madison County History book

 

Peter H. Anderson was born in Denmark in 1882.  His father was a custom butcher with a family of eight sons and two daughters.  Peter came to his uncle's farm in Elk Horn, Iowa in early spring of 1900.  He worked for a time in Iowa, then came to Dillon, Montana later that year.  Peter went to work for Mr. J. E. Morse, a rancher with extensive ranch and sheep operations on his Spur ranch.  He later became foreman on the Spur Ranch and worked there until 1905.  That same year, he joined his brother, John as a partner in the sheep business which John had started for himself.  Peter homesteaded on Robb Creek in Madison County, and later acquired extensive holdings in that area, becoming one of Madison County's largest sheep operators.  Pete and John operated as partners in the sheep business from 1905 until 1925.  During this period they acquired extensive holdings in Madsion and Beaverhead Counties.  During the peak of this operation, they ran in excess of 25,000 head of sheep.

 

In 1925, the partnership was dissolved, and the operation was divided.  Both brothers continued operations as individuals and continued to expand their holdings.

 

Peter's home ranch for many years was south of Alder, approximately seven miles, on what was commonly known as the Harding Ranch.  This ranch was sold in 1938 and the Ruby Dam was built.  Peter later sold the range lands adjacent to the Ruby Dam to a group of ranchers for cattle summer range, now known as the Garden Creek Grazing Association.  After the Ruby Dam was built, Peter and his wife lived on a place at Alder, later moving to a home in Sheridan.

 

Peter acquired extensive holdings on the upper Madison above Ennis which is known as the Missouri Flats.  Later in the eraly 1940's, Pete sold his holdings on the Madison and acquired part of the Selway Sheep Company's holdings on Rock Creek, a tributary of Black Tail Creek and adjacent to his holdings on Robb Creek.  Pete operated extensively in the sheep business in the area until his death.

 

The ranch was bought by a group of Ruby Valley Ranchers and operates today as a cattle summer range known as the Robb Creek Cattle Association.  

 

Peter married Edith Schowe in Missoula on October 12, 1934.  She preceded him in death on June 10, 1952.  They had no children.  Peter passed away in 1958, leaving his large estate to his surviving brothers and sisters, along with all the living nephews and nieces.

 

Notes for Anna Marie Jepsen:

Keith Andersen says that "Marie" had an affair with "Mucky" MacDonald.  She was contrite and wanted to restore her marriage with Pete, but he refused to take her back.  He reportedly gave her a large sum of money ($10,000 or $20,000), but would not take her back.  She never remarried.

Dr. R. H. Dyer, who was summoned to the home, estimated the elderly stockman had been dead for at least 36 hours.  Mr. Anderson returned home recently to Sheridan from a visit with relatives in California.

 

He was a native of Denmark and had resided in the Ruby Valley since early in the century, making his home in Sheridan for a number of years.  He also had extensive holdings in the Beaverhead Valley.

 

Mr. Anderson's wife, the former Edith Schowe, passed away several years ago.  He was also preceded in death by brothers Hans of Dillon and John of Alder.

 

Survivors include a sister in Dillon, Mrs. Berg Christensen, and a sister Mrs. Marie Groth of Oakland, California; brothers Albert and Matt of Dillon, Andrew in Canada and Tom in Denmark; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.  His body is in the Marsh Funeral Home.

Peter Anderson Biography, written by John H. Anderson, Jr. in "Pioneer Trails and Trials" the Madison County History book

 

Peter H. Anderson was born in Denmark in 1882.  His father was a custom butcher with a family of eight sons and two daughters.  Peter came to his uncle's farm in Elk Horn, Iowa in early spring of 1900.  He worked for a time in Iowa, then came to Dillon, Montana later that year.  Peter went to work for Mr. J. E. Morse, a rancher with extensive ranch and sheep operations on his Spur ranch.  He later became foreman on the Spur Ranch and worked there until 1905.  That same year, he joined his brother, John as a partner in the sheep business which John had started for himself.  Peter homesteaded on Robb Creek in Madison County, and later acquired extensive holdings in that area, becoming one of Madison County's largest sheep operators.  Pete and John operated as partners in the sheep business from 1905 until 1925.  During this period they acquired extensive holdings in Madsion and Beaverhead Counties.  During the peak of this operation, they ran in excess of 25,000 head of sheep.

 

In 1925, the partnership was dissolved, and the operation was divided.  Both brothers continued operations as individuals and continued to expand their holdings.

 

Peter's home ranch for many years was south of Alder, approximately seven miles, on what was commonly known as the Harding Ranch.  This ranch was sold in 1938 and the Ruby Dam was built.  Peter later sold the range lands adjacent to the Ruby Dam to a group of ranchers for cattle summer range, now known as the Garden Creek Grazing Association.  After the Ruby Dam was built, Peter and his wife lived on a place at Alder, later moving to a home in Sheridan.

 

Peter acquired extensive holdings on the upper Madison above Ennis which is known as the Missouri Flats.  Later in the eraly 1940's, Pete sold his holdings on the Madison and acquired part of the Selway Sheep Company's holdings on Rock Creek, a tributary of Black Tail Creek and adjacent to his holdings on Robb Creek.  Pete operated extensively in the sheep business in the area until his death.

 

The ranch was bought by a group of Ruby Valley Ranchers and operates today as a cattle summer range known as the Robb Creek Cattle Association.  

 

Peter married Edith Schowe in Missoula on October 12, 1934.  She preceded him in death on June 10, 1952.  They had no children.  Peter passed away in 1958, leaving his large estate to his surviving brothers and sisters, along with all the living nephews and nieces.

 

Notes for Anna Marie Jepsen:

Keith Andersen says that "Marie" had an affair with "Mucky" MacDonald.  She was contrite and wanted to restore her marriage with Pete, but he refused to take her back.  He reportedly gave her a large sum of money ($10,000 or $20,000), but would not take her back.  She never remarried.

Notes regarding the name confusion:

 

Christine Andersen says she remembers many cousins who were Henningsens but no aunts or uncles, because the generation before them had a different surname.

 

Ib Christensen (an historian of Aero emigration) says that "the children of Rasmus and Ellen used Rasmussen as their surname, although it ought to be Henningsen.  It happened frequently that people continued to use the old name customs, where Rasmussen would be the correct family name.

I send you a picture of his brother Henning Hansen Henningsen (1833-1910) and his second wife, Kirstine Christensen (1854-1939). They lived close (four or five houses away) from Johan Hansen Andersen and Johanne Andersen (Kromann).  In his youth Henning and his brother Peder Nielsen Henningsen migrated to Australia (1857) to dig gold in Queensland. Peder died down under but Henning went home to Aero and married Maren Kirstine Jepsen in 1867.  She died in 1873, and Henning remarried Kirstine Christensen  in 1877.

from Peter Henningsen in Marstal, Aero, Denmark

Hi Christy

 

You have some odd information about the first wife of Henning Hansen Henningsen. Maren Kirstine Jepsen was not born in Odense and she did not die there either. She was born in the village of Vindeballe, also on Aero, and died in the village of Olde (also on Aero), where she lived with Henning Hansen Henningsen. They only had one child - Rasmus Hansen Henningen born in 1869 who died in Montana in 1936 - the other girl is an error and has nothing to do with Henning and Maren Kirstine.

Notes for CHRISTIAN Ernst:

Christian was a school teacher and court-writer in St. Rise.  He was also an innkeeper.  He did not keep his job as a teacher for very long, as seen in the following:

 

Duke Christian issued a written order, dated Glucksburg Castle, August 1, 1695.  From the document it is learned that the organist in Rise, who was also the court-writer, was unable to conduct the school in a proper manner and neglected the school, with the result that the parents kept their children at home.  He therefore hired Casper Johansen as the new schoolteacher and ordered that each father of a child should pay the teacher 20 mark (old currency) annually for each child from the age of 7 until such time when the child was confirmed, usually at the age of 14.  Further each father should pay 5 mark each quarter of a year, whether the children went to school or not.  Each farmer should further give some firewood to the school.  Parents who kept their children at home, without a good reason, for one week would pay a fine of 5 1/2 mark.

 

The farmers complained about this, and in a new order dated November 6, 1695, the school fees were reduced.

 

Only 3 names of his children have been found, but he is presumed to have more because a child was born in 1680.

I think they had a daughter in 1673 called Sabina Weinstorff. This needs to be checked further. (from Ib Christensen in Aero)

 

Before Duke Christian died he wanted to secure the future for Cathrine Griebels and his daughter, wherefore he wrote his will on November 4, 1629, and left her a house in Aeroskobing with furniture, barn and garden, as well as the small island Dejroe where the Duke raised rabbits.
