1 NOTE Life sketch

"Heart Throbs of the West," Volume 12, “Pioneer Furniture Their Pioneer Homes” reports that “Hans Jorgensen--Accompanied by his wife, Maren Kristina, left Denmark, December 10, 185
2 CONC 2, to join their lot with the Saints in Utah. His wife died (just before the ship got to) New Orleans and he then made preparations to join the company, who under the leadership of John Forsgren, wer
2 CONC e going to the Valley of the Great Salt Lake. While on this journey he met and married Dorthea Christensen, July 4, 1853, at Council Bluffs. They resumed their journey reaching Salt Lake City, October
2 CONC 1, 1853. Here they built a dugout where they lived in Salt Lake for two and a half years, then moved to Brigham City where they lived nine years. On April 18, 1865, the Jorgensen family moved to Loga
2 CONC n.”


1 NOTE Reason:

Maren Kirstine Pedersdatter was born to Peder Larsen (Munch?) and Anne Jorgensen in 1894. Her patronymic name of Maren Kirstine Pedersdatter appears on the parish christening record of son
2 CONC Jorgen Jakobsen born to her while unmarried in 1815 and the father listed as Jakob Jorgensen. A similar name of Maren Kirstine Peders Datter appears on parish marriage record in 1823 to groom Hans Jo
2 CONC rgensen. Their son, Jens Hansen was also born in 1823 and other children came later. The family joined the LDS Church in 1851 and emigrated to America in 1853 with Maren dying en route. “Family S
2 CONC earch” contributed her name as Maren Christine Pedersdatter Munch with many other name variations coming from numerous sources. The personal journal of her son, Jens Hansen, gives her name as Mare
2 CONC n Kirstine Pedersen and the family history of her husband Hans Jorgensen gives it as Maren Kierstine Pedersen. According to parish records and the rules of patronymics, Maren Kirstine Pedersdatter a
2 CONC ppears to have been the name used around the time of her birth regardless of myriad alterations made later by others.

    - Comment:

    Sister Jorgensen is mentioned in paragraphs for March 7 and 8.

    Monday, Mar. 7. In the morning we could see the land of America. We came into the Mississippi River and sailed up it until about 4 o’clock in the afternoon, when we anchored. Shortly after, Elder Forsgren went ashore to put in order the necessary preparations for the rest of our journey. In the evening Brother Jorgensen’s wife died.

    Tuesday, Mar. 8. A casket was made this morning for Sister Jorgensen, and about 12 o’clock noon we went ashore and buried her on an island where there were many tree stumps. The land here was very rich; there was a lighthouse. This is the first land I have trodden on, and I prayed to God, on my face, that He would bless me. We remained in that place the rest of the day.
