Margaret Olsen Christensen
Margaret and her family (including husband, Jens Peter, and daughters Maren K., Hannah, and Sena) initially arrived in New York on 3 June 1864 via the ship Monarch of the Seas. On ship records, they are listed under the surname of Jensen. First documentation to place them in Utah is the birth of their son, Niels Peter Jenson on 17 July 1865, as documented at the time of his blessing on 7 September 1865 in the Logan Ward. It is likely that the family first arrived in Utah in 1864, but further research is needed to confirm that.
It is also uncertain exactly how many of the children that came overseas with them actually made the overland journey.
Death records list her under the surname of "Jenson."
