PETER M. JENSEN

Peter “M” Jensen was born December 6, 1842 in Raadved. Denmark to Anders Jensen (23 Dec. 1803) and Ane Kristine Rasmussen (30 Oct. 1807), the sixth of eleven children. He joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at the age of 14 years .. After joining the Church, he came to this country alone from the town of Roiva in Denmark. After joining the saints here, he drove a team belonging to one of the brethren across the plains to Salt Lake City in the early 1850’s.

He married Mary or Maria Pedersen (Mortensen) on October 3, 1868 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City.. They had five children: Joseph, Millie, Caroline, Nora, and Evelyn. They lived in Parowan, Utah where he farmed . Their family was almost raised when Peter met Sarah Ann Elsena Mortensen, a relative of his first wife. In 1884, Peter married his second wife, Sarah Ann Elsena Mortensen in the St. George Temple. She was only about 17 years old at the time. To this union were born seven children: Glen Alpine, Una, Orell, Roiva, Udell, Virgil, and Truman, whose twin brother was stillborn. While living in Parowan, the Jensens were among those who practiced the United Order for a time.

All the facts about his other family are not known, but they moved up to Union, just southeast of Salt Lake City where Sarah and her family lived the rest of her life.

From what is known about Peter Jensen, it is believed that he may have had the occupation of a miller at one time, and therefore added the”M” to his name. Peter M. Jensen died March 29, 1930. Glen’s grandfather Jensen died when Glen was not yet two years old, so he doesn’t remember his grandfather.

SARAH ANN ELSENA MORTENSEN

Sarah Ann Elsena Mortensen was born March 12, 1866 in Parowan, Utah. She was the fifth of eleven children born to Anders Jorgen Mortensen (21 Sept. 1833) and Christine Andersen (25 Dec. 1833). On the Church records Anders Jorgen Mortensen is Anders Jorgen Pedersen Mortensen. Some of the children show the surname of Pedersen and some Mortensen Anders Jorgen Mortensen had other wives. Christine Andersen was wife #1.

Sarah married Peter M. Jensen in the St. George Temple on February 20, 1884. She and her family lived in Parowan until her oldest child, Glen A. was about six years old when they moved to Union, Utah, about ten miles south of Salt Lake City. Here she raised her six children, Glen Alpine, Una, Orell, Roiva, Udell, Virgil and Truman, whose twin brother was stillborn. Truman was killed in an accident when he was a very young man. Sarah lived in the same house on about 72 South and 13 East for the remainder of her life Because she was so much younger than Peter, she spent many years alone..

From what we know of her, she was a quiet, industrious, hard-working woman who loved the Church and her family very much. Most of them lived close by (children and grandchildren) and they were a source of great joy to her.

Though she didn’t have great material possessions, she seems to be remembered fondly by those who knew her as a very kind, gentle, and loving individual. She died February 24, 1955 in Union at the home of her daughter Una.

Glen doesn’t remember too much about his grandmother, though he did know her as they lived by her for a time. He remembers her as so giving of anything that she had and that she was very good to him. Glen’s mother, Estella, said that grandma Jensen was one of the most kind and patient women she had ever known, though she was lonesome at times and may have felt a bit
inferior to grandpa’s first family. Perhaps that was only her impression, but I never heard her say anything negative about her mother-in-law. Glen and I both recall the many nice tributes paid to her at her funeral. She must have led a very good life of caring and service to others.

Though there are possibly more complete histories written about Glen’s grandfather and grandmother Jensen, these are some of the things we know about them as they have been told to us and that we have been able to compile from records.

From Familysearch

Peter Jensen, the sixth of eleven children, was born on December 6, 1842 in Raadved, Denmark to Anders Jensen and Ane Kirstine Rasmussen. Peter’s parents owned and operated a large successful farm near Raadved. The Jensens were devout Lutherans and Anders often read the bible to his family.

Peter was apprenticed to a miller to learn the trade and, while thus engaged, he heard the Mormon missionaries and accepted their message. He was baptized by Jens E. Knapp in 1860. He returned home to tell his parents the news, but they heard beforehand that he had been talking to the missionaries and they forbade Peter from coming onto their property. For the next two years Peter helped the missionaries spread the gospel in Denmark. Then they encouraged him to sail to America to avoid being forced to join the Danish army. Peter left his homeland behind him and headed for the American West, where he joined the saints gathering in Utah. He arrived with no money, no friends or family, and little understanding of the english language. Some people from his hometown lived in Manti, so Peter settled there with them. When he first arrived, he was given a blanket and was told he could sleep in the chaff pen. It was not the warm welcome he had hoped for. He said, “I actually shed tears when I thought of my comfortable home and family back in Denmark.”

While living in Manti, Peter dreamed that he kept journeying south and found a lovely girl named Mary who became his wife. This dream so affected him that he decided to go south and look for her. Mary Mortensen was participating in a spinning bee at a neighbor’s home in Parowan when Peter met her. He recognized her as the girl in his dreams and courted her. They were married on December 6, 1867 and set up house in Parowan. Peter, being a miller by trade, operated the town gristmill. Because there were so many Peter Jensens living in town, Peter took on the middle name of “Miller” to distinguish himself from the others.
On New Year’s Eve of 1869, Indians raided Parowan and stole a span of mules from William Dame’s stable. Many men from town, including Peter, chased after the Indians. Arriving home thoroughly exhausted that night, he learned that his first child – a son – had been born in his absence. In 1877 Peter was called to work at the Manti Temple construction site. He and five other men from Parowan spent three months in Manti excavating for the temple. His wife Mary cooked for the men.
About this time, Peter learned that his family had joined the church in Denmark and were immigrating to Utah. It was one of the happiest days of his life. He met his family at the nearest train station and took them to Parowan. His parents settled in Parowan, but died not too long after their arrival. Peter’s siblings grew up and moved to the Manti area.

Peter participated actively in the church during his lifetime. He served as a member of the bishopbric in his ward, and also as the Sunday school superintendent. He also was a member of the high council for many years. He sang in the church choir and played in the town band. Peter and Mary attended the dedications of the St. George, Manti, and Salt Lake Temples.

Peter and Mary Jensen had five children – one boy and four girls. Peter’s daughter Amelia said that during her childhood, the family spent winter evenings singing hymns, reading biographies of Joseph Smith, Parley P. Pratt, and others, and reading the scriptures. They cracked pinenuts and ate apples that they had gathered. Peter was known for his clean language and the worst phrase he ever used was, “You dough head.”
On November 20, 1884 Peter took Sarah Ann Elsena Mortensen, a cousin of his wife Mary, as a second wife. They had seven children together. After the passage of the Edmunds-Tucker Act in 1887, U.S. Marshals were sent to Utah to arrest and imprison polygamists. Peter and his family were having a picnic on the front lawn one afternoon when several marshals rode up. They chased Peter through an orchard and arrested him. He went to court and the judge threw the case out because he said it lacked sufficient evidence for a conviction.

Just after the turn of the century, Peter and Mary packed up their belongings and moved to Salt Lake Valley. Mary died there on July 13, 1903 at age 56. At the age of eighty, Peter broke his leg. When the doctor went to set it, he said the bones were pulled two inches apart and would not heal correctly. He told Peter that he would probably never walk again. When the doctor removed the cast a month later, Peter could walk as well as he ever had.

Peter lived to be eighty-seven years old. A few days before he died he called his family together and said, “My work is finished. I am going home. I don’t want anyone to grieve or worry. I want to leave you my blessing and this leaf from my book of life: always be cheerful and keep the commandments.” Some of his family wanted to stay with him but he told them to go about their work. A few days later, on March 29, 1930, Peter did his daily chores, bathed, shaved, and retired for the night. He died in his sleep and was buried in Murray City Cemetery on April 2, 1930.

The name Peter Jensen, age 22, appears on the passenger list for the ship, Monarch of the Sea, leaving Liverpool 26 April 1864, and arriving in the United States 3 June 1864. The name, birthplace, and age fit our ancestor.

According to the book, Our Pioneer Heritage, Vol. 8:

Scandinavian Immigration-1864

On April 10th, 1864, at 5 p.m. the Swedish steamer L. L Bager sailed from Copenhagen, carrying 350 emigrants from Sweden and Norway and some from the Fredericia Conference, Denmark, in charge of Johan P. R. Johansen. This company of Saints went by steamer to Lubeck, thence by rail to Hamburg, thence by steamer to Hull, in England, and thence by rail to Liverpool, where the emigrants joined another company of emigrating Saints which sailed from Copenhagen three days later.

On April 13, 1864, the English steamer Sultana sailed from Copenhagen, Denmark, with 353 emigrants from the different conferences in Denmark, excepting a few from Fredericia, who, on account of the war, went directly to Hamburg. This company was in charge of President Jesse N. Smith, a returning missionary. Elder John Smith, who because of poor health had labored in the mission office in Copenhagen, and Christoffer Holberg, who had labored in Sweden, also sailed on the Sultana, returning to their homes in Zion. The following elders were among the emigrants: Niels C. Edlefsen, Peter C. Geertsen, Peter C. Carstensen, Nels C. Flygare, Anders Swedlund, Jens Hansen, Lars Nilsson, Anders Pontus Soderborg and Jens C. Olsen. A number of traveling elders also emigrated with this company, which, like the preceding one, went by way of Lubeck, Hamburg and Grimsby to Liverpool, where they were joined by the company that sailed from Copenhagen, April 10th.

On Tuesday, April 26th, the ship Monarch of the Sea cleared for sailing, and on Thursday, April 28th, sailed from Liverpool, England, with 973 souls on board. Patriarch John Smith was chosen president of the company with Elders John D. Chase, Johan P. R. Johansen and Parley P. Pratt, Jun., as his counselors. Elders were also appointed to take charge of the different divisions of the company. During the voyage there was considerable sickness and some deaths, mostly children. In the morning of June 3rd the Monarch of the Sea arrived at New York where the landing of the emigrants at Castle Garden at once took place. In the evening they boarded a steamer for Albany, N.Y., and from there they traveled by train to St. Joseph, Missouri; thence by steamer up the Missouri River to Wyoming, Nebraska, from which place most of the Scandinavian Saints were taken to the Valley by Church teams, of which 170 were sent out by the Church that season. Thus about four hundred emigrating Scandinavian Saints crossed the plains in Captain William P. Preston’s company of about fifty Church teams, that left Wyoming, Nebraska, in the beginning of June, and arrived in Salt Lake City, September 15, 1864.

Various accounts of the voyage

This more specific account was given by J. C. L. Breinholt:

Autobiography of J. C. L. Breinholt

More Sharing Services
. . . On the fourth of April I said goodbye to my parents and brothers and sisters in Nebsager Mark.

On the 6th of April, 1864 I bid adieu to my native land, Jutland. I left the city of Horsens on that day in company with Elder Peder Jensen of Raodred per. Horsens. This young man now lives in Parowan, Iron County. We were companions all the way from Horsen to Manti, San Pete, Utah.

We traveled by wagon from Horsen to Aarhus where we took steamer for Korsoer. We landed here in the afternoon and as we were wending our way from the harbor to the railroad station some urchins yelled at us calling us, “Mormon priests”. This we thought singular as neither of us had ever been on the island before (Sjaelland). We arrived in Copenhagen late in the evening of the eighth and I think we stayed in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, one week. We took the steamer from here to Altona; from there we traveled by rail to Hamburg where we stopped two or three days. While here, I had a spell of sickness but not serious. From Hamburg we went by steamer to Grimsby via Hull. From Grimsby by rail to Liverpool where we again laid over about a week waiting for our ship to get ready to take us on board. The ship that took us from Liverpool to New York was a large [p.9] sail ship and was called, Monarch of the Sea. There was on board about 1,000 Latter-day Saints; so, notwithstanding the size of the vessel we found ourselves pretty well crowded. Especially did we experience a great deal of inconvenience in the cooking department and it was chance work for many of us to get our meals cooked. I, for my part, however, did not suffer any as I had good health all the way. The trip across the Atlantic took us about 35 days. Having lost my notes which I pencilled down while on my journey here, I am unable to give exact dates. But I think we landed at Castle Garden, New York on the 1st or 2nd of June, where we stayed but a day and then continued our journey toward our destination by taking steamer up the Hudson River to the city of Albany, from which place we went by rail to St. Joseph in the State of Missouri. From there we embarked on a steamer which landed us on the west banks of the Missouri River at a place called Wyoming, [Nebraska] where we laid in waiting about three weeks before the ox trains from Utah arrived which were to take us across the dreary plains.

Instead of going with the Church teams, I and four other young men; namely, my partner and friend Peder Jensen, Niels L. Lund, Soren Thomsen and Charles Rovar, engaged ourselves as teamsters to a man from Manti by the name of Soren Christoffersen. . . . [p.10]

. . . We entered the valleys of the mountains by the way of Provo Canyon about the twelfth or thirteenth of October. We proceeded right on to Manti, the home of Soren Christoffersen, arriving there on the 10th of October, 1864. . . . [p.12]
