Rasmus Peter Hansen
His surname is spelled Hanson in some sources. He was traveled on to Utah with Paul and Lovisa Jacobsen, his adoptive parents and his half sister, Maren Sophia Jorgensen. This was possibly after the death of his parents. We know that his father died en route, but do not have a death date for his mother.
