HISTORY OF ANDREW THOMSON, JR.

Colaborador: Annetta Dansie Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Andrew Thomson, Jr. son of Andrew and Christiana Jensen Thomson was born in Ephraim, Sanpete, County, Utah on November 4, 1858 in a log cabin. It was inside the Fort which was built as a protection against the attacks of the Indians. Later, when the city of Ephraim was laid out, the Andrew Thomson, Sr. home was located on Second East and Center Street. Years later the house was torn down. The land was used by the Snow College and the Crane Theater stands there now. Andrew attended the schools in Ephraim and one winter at BYU Academy at Provo. He was always a good student and interested in education. When Anton H. Lund was his teacher, he received the prize for being the best in geography. The prize was a tin type picture taken of himself. The picture has always been a prize in our family. He was baptized when about eight years of age and ordained successively to the offices of Teacher, Elder and High Priest. He served as a member of the High Council, and was chosen to act as first counselor to Bishop Beal Dec. 9, 1901 with whom he served for several years. Andrew was a tall handsome man with dark brown hair and dark grey eyes. He and Mary Louise made a handsome couple. In 1882-83, he labored as a missionary in the St.George Temple. While in St. George, he met Mary Louise Eyring and after a fine courtship they were married in the St.George Temple, December 20, 1883. The ceremony was performed by Wilford Woodruff. Their first son, Henry Eyring, was born December 7, 1884. They lived in St.George for two and one half years where Andrew worked in the Co-op store that his father-in-law managed and at Silver Reef. He made enough money to buy a little home when they moved to Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah. Their first home was a two-room adobe house located in the Southeastern part of Ephraim. Andrew, being very handy, remodeled their house, putting on a new roof, tearing out the old fireplace and plastering the walls, building a kitchen on the back and digging a cellar going down from the kitchen. They were very comfortable with their three sons, Eyring, Andrew and Wells. Then Andrew bought a lot across from the Snow College where he himself was born. He bought it from Brother William Bowden for $700 which was a high price at that time. There was a cedar tree out in front which Brother Bowden made him promise not to cut down. (It still stands today in front of the LOS Institute Building) Andrew built a nice two story yellow brick home on the property. Lincolm, Maiben, Mary Christiana (May Anna), and Fern were all born in this home. At that time there were no modern conveniences, but as soon as water was piped to town and there electric lights, Andrew had them installed in the house. Sometime later, Andrew modernized the big kitchen to make a bathroom, closets, and smaller kitchen with buffeting, etc. In 1896-97, Andrew was called on a mission to Germany, laboring in the Hamburg conference. Louise with her five boys and help from Andrew 's father and brothers, kept the farm going while he was gone. Mary Christiana, their first girl , was born eight months after Andrew left for his mission and Fern was born two years later. Andrew's mission was cut a little short of two years on account of a serious illness, a ruptured appendix from which he suffered the rest of his life. Andrew worked as the counselor in the Manti Temple to three presidents. He drove over from Ephraim to Manti each morning with his horse and buggy no matter what kind of weather it was. He performed the marriages of all his children in the Manti Temple except for Fern. He officiated in the Temple clear up to his last sickness. Andrew was ordained a Patriarch of the South Sanpete Stake by President Anthon H. Lund on May 13 , 1918 at Ephraim, but because of poor health, was not able to give many blessings . Andrew was a good prov-ider. The family never lacked for anything they needed. He was always busy getting up early in the mornings and working until late at night if need be. In winter he always mended his horses harnesses , repaired machinery and fences. He was always prepared for spring to put in his crops. He always planted a good garden and took care of it. There was always all the good vegetables the family needed. Behind the house was a washhouse and under it was a root cellar where they could store their vegetables. He was particular in keeping the city lot clean of weeds and keeping the lawn watered and cut. The yard was very large with beautiful bushes and flowers. Although Andrew's health was never good after his sickness in Germany, he would never give up, but worked as if he was well and strong. Andrew was good to the widows and those who needed help. He was able to speak Danish and German. He was a man who studied the gospel and lived its principles. He was also an excellent speaker. The last Spring of his life he had raked and cleaned the lot, but the work and stormy weather was too much for him. He took pneumonia and died shortly afterwards on May 1, 1922 at age of 64 years.
