"...We recently made a visit to the comfortable home of Andy Rossmussen, near Heavely Branch. Mr. Rassmussen came from Denmark a few years ago, a poor boy without a dollar. He soon married Miss Tullie McGee, a very intelligent and domestic lady. Mr. Rassmussen went to work and through industry and economy has bought and settled one of the most desirable farms in the county. He does his own work with exception of a little day labor. Last year he made more than enough meat and corn to go him and one hundred and forty gallons of the best syrup, having one barrel of last year's crop on hand. He made forage plenty of all kinds. He made thirty-three bales of cotton. Mr. and Mrs. Rassmussen have a peculiar way of making one free and welcome, but the most enjoyable feature of the occasion was a delicious dinner, a table so laden with good things and so varied in its make-up that we only took a partial course, but we cut a big slice as far as we went."

He married first to Isadore "Tella" Marcella McGee, daughter of Drury C. McGee and Sarah J. Haynes. Andy and Tella Rasmussen had 8 children, including Lucille J., Bennie, William, and Charles

Andy and Tella divorced before 1910. Ander/Andrew/Andy/Andrues Rasmussen married second "Grandy" Amanda Wells
Grandchildren called second Grandma "Grandy-Mandy"
