Lars and Martha Maria Johansen Fratzen traveled to the Salt Lake Valley with their children John and Karen, and her husband, in the Christian Christiansen Company in 1857. The Frandzen family sailed from Liverpool on the "Westmoreland" on 25 April 1857. They arrived in Philadelphia on 31 May 1857. Her death date was located on an online personal family history without any accompanying documentation. Further research is necessary in order to provide adequate evidence.
