Milo Andrus

In the Spring of 1848, Milo was called on a mission to England, and his wife, Sarah Ann Miles accompanied him on his mission.  At the end of that mission Milo and Sarah traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the Milo Andrus company in 1850, with their young son, Milo Jr.  Milo was the captain of the company.

In 1855, at the end of a mission to St. Louis where he presided over the stake there as the first president, Milo returned home with the Milo Andrus Company, again acting as Captain.

In the fall of 1859 Milo was called on another mission to England.  At the end this mission, Milo returned home, first sailing on The Underwriter and then traveled again as Captain of the Milo Andrus Company in 1861.
