Ole Anderson (1852-1932) 1

Ole Anderson

Ole Anderson converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He and his wife and children immigrated to the United States and settled in Utah. He was one of the early settlers of the city of Pleasant Grove which is north of Provo and Orem in Utah Valley, Utah County, south of Salt Lake Valley.

He and his wife had several children, many of whom grew up to have children of their own.

He had been a baker back in Europe, and by some accounts a successful, well liked, and prosperous one. After arriving in Utah, however, he went to Salt Lake for a time to learn the leatherworking trade. He opened up a leather shop in Utah Valley (probably in Pleasant Grove) and made saddles and harnesses and other leather goods.

Apparently his shop was a popular place for the men in town to gather.

He is remembered as being very kind and jovial. His family held gatherings in Pleasant Grove for many years.
