Benthes barnebarn, Elsie Parker, født Esler, skriver om Benthe og hendes familie i Amerika:
"Benth came here with her brother Hans Andersen and his wife Berth,or Birth, Olsen. They had 3 children, Lars, Anders and Gertrud. They all went to Pennsylvania. There was a Larsen family and Nielsens, two women. All came from the same area and on the same boat. I don't know if they were related. Benth married Soren Nielsen.I think they got married in Wisconsin. Soren came from Kollerup, Thisted. He came here in 1886. First to Michigan. I think. I know there was family in Iowa also. I don't know what became of Hans.
It's so good to find some part of the family from where gramma and grampa came from. I remember when gramma died, I wasn't 3 yet but I remember her. Some of her flowers are still growing and blooming each year. Mama lived here too.
Soren and Benth had 8 children, one died as a baby. Frank was born in 1890 in Nebraska. Since Benth came in 1889 I think they knew each other before they left Denmark. I sorta thought maybe Benth lived with her older brother or sister. Her mother died while she was a child. Their second child, a girl, died young. Another girl was born a year later. In Wyoming. Then they went to South Dakota where 2 more children were born. They came here to Victor in 1902. It's on the Puget Sound in Washington State. The northwest corner of America. Here there were 3 more daughters born".
"Viborg, South Dakota must be very cold in the winter. In 1898 the USA had the worst winter ever. They had planned on staying there, making it their home. They came west after that winter. I think they had to replenish their supplies etc. Mom always said they couldn't take the weather there".
"I have often wondered what the grandparents thought when they saw the Sound? There were no roads here, everything was by boat. It was such a hard life for them. Somehow they made it and saw the first cars make it here. They were amongst the early pioneers here, Søren was postmaster at Allyn and Justice of the Peace ( dommer i mindre civile sager) from 1915 until his death in 1930. His picture hangs in the post office now".
