About Anton Peter Madsen

Anton Peter Madson was born to Jacob and Dorothea Christine Jensen Madsen in Denmark in 1852. The family joined the LDS church there and immigrated to America in 1957 when Anton was only 4 or 5 years old. He married Elizabeth Mary Jane Nelson, and they had eleven children. Elizabeth Mary Jane Nelson was the daughter of Mary Catherine Welker and her husband Thomas Billington Nelson. Anton's brother, Christian Madsen, was married to Roxana Louisa Welker, the daughter of Mary Catherine Welker's brother, John Welker.

Anton worked as a farmer most of his life. He passed away in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1924 after suffering from prostate cancer for two years. At the time of his death he was living at 511 C. Street, and was a 72 year old widower. His wife, Elizabeth Mary Jane had passed away in 1913. The informant on Anton Peter Madsen's Utah Death Certificate was Heber C. Nelsen, his son-in-law, who was married to his daughter Samantha.

Two sisters of Christian and Anton Peter Madsen also married Welker sons, Eliza Madsen married Alfred Welker and Marie Inger Madsen married James Albert Welker. Both Alfred and James Albert Welker were the sons of James Wilburn Welker, brother of John Welker and Mary Catherine Welker. Another Welker brother, Adam Pugh Welker, married Clara Osmond, the daughter of George and Mary Georgina Huckvale Osmond. George Osmond was the great-grandfather of Donny and Marie Osmond, and the singing group the Osmond Brothers who were popular in the 1970's.
