Dorthea Johanna Clausen (1835 - 1909) Profile

Dorthea Johanna Clausen

She was married to Hans Peter Jensen in 1855. Her sister, Sarah Josephine Dinah Catherine Jensen, was also a wife to Hans Peter Jensen. Dorthea married Hans after arriving to Utah. It is unclear whether or not Dorthea traveled from Denmark to Utah with Hans and Sarah. She may have come at a different time. More research is required to determine when and how she arrived to Utah. She arrived in Utah before October 1855.

Her name is "Dora Jensen" on the 1860 census, "Dora C. Jensen" on the burial and death certificate and "Dorthea Johann Clawsen Jensen" on Find A Grave website.  Her birth date is confirmed by her death certificate.
