NORWAY:Madsen, Andrew - Chicago, IL 1881

I'm looking for my Andrew Madsen who immigrated from Norway in 1881, married my great grandmom, Ada Beck in March of 1883, and died in Harvey, Cook Co., IL May 2, 1904. He was naturalized in Cook Co., and worked for Whiting Shops, an iron forging company that still exists to this day in Harvey, IL. He was a charter member of the Hyde Park Odd Fellows. He and Ada had 12 children, though only 5 lived to adulthood . . . they were:
First four children stillborn
Anna Mathilda Madsen
Arthur Madsen (died at 10)
Oscar Theodore Madsen
Charles William Madsen
Frank Martin Madsen
Herbert Madsen
Walter Madsen (died in late teens)
Henry John Madsen (died in late teens)

Ada's sister, Anna Marie Beck married a Johnson in the Harvey area, I believe. Would love to connect with anyone who might know anything about this Madsen family, particularly Andrews ancestors. Can't find any information about his family.
