Ane Laursen Swensen
Ane Laursen Nielsen
The Swenson family arrived in New York on 24 July 1866 via the ship Kenilworth. As head of household, only Morgan's name is listed on the overland company roster. However, the record shows that he purchased four and a half adult food rations for that portion of the journey, which indicates that the family members who were with him on the ship, continued with him across the plains in the Scott company.
Her travel to Utah is also mentioned in the obituary of her daughter, Augusta.
