The 1862 Humboldt ship manifest includes the names of the family members. However, we know that they actually sailed to America on the ship Athenia because the New York Passenger List of arrivals includes the names of Mads and Mattie as arriving on that ship. A daughter, Karen Marie, died while crossing the ocean.
A secondary source states that the Hansen family may have come with the 1862 Ola N. Liljenquist pioneer company, but an emigration report printed in the Deseret News indicates that those who traveled on the Humboldt were in the charge of H. C. Hansen. H. C. Hansen traveled to Utah as a member of the Christian A. Madsen company. Further research is needed to confirm their travel with that company.
In 1866, the family lived in the Providence, Utah ward.
