Individual Note

Name Source: Utah, State, Death Certificates, Department of Health - Utah, State Department of Health, Certificate of Deathdeath certificate (1924), Peter MogensenDeath Certificate names his wife as Dorthy Mogensen.
Dorthea's parents were wealthy and they offered her all of the riches they possessed if she would not join the Mormon Church. She was the only daughter and they didn't want her to leave them to go to Zion. But no material offer could dissuade Dorthea and Peter. They left Svendstrup on 24 November 1855 as recorded in Landsarkivet, Jagtveg 10-1-20-39 (Archives in Copenhagen).

Her last name is variously recorded as Neilson after her father's last name and Christensen after her father's first name.
