Niels Andersen Jeppsen
Inger and her son Niels sailed to America in 1861 on the ship Monarch of the Sea. The ship manifest shows Inger’s name as “Inger Larsen,” a widow. However, her husband Anders Jeppesen remained in Denmark and died there in 1882. Niel’s name is shown as “Niels Andersen.”
His travel to Utah in 1861 is confirmed by his obituary. As his mother was on the ship with him and died in Utah, it is assumed that they came on to Utah together. Further research is needed to determine the name of the pioneer company with which they traveled.
His death certificate shows his name as "Nels Anderson Jeppsen."
