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,” a labourer.
The obituary of her son states that he came to America and Utah in 1861. As she 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.
The inscription on her gravestone shows her name as "Inger Nielsen," and it confirms her birth and death dates.
