History of Jens Christian Nielsen
I, Jens Christian Nielsen, was born the 3 June 1852 in Tamstrup Hede Hus Torslev Sogn, Vensysel, Hjorring Amt, Denmark.
My parents were Niels Christian Chrestensen and Maren Jensdatter. In my childhood as now I was very religious in my desires. I always went to church with my parents as well as to the gatherings of other people with other beliefs than ours. My great desire was to be saved in God's Kingdom hereafter. But I had no desire to join any other faith until one day in 1864 a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints held a meeting in my parent's home, and as soon as I heard him sing and speak I understood the voice of the Good Shepherd. It was as if I had heard it before for it had a familiar sound and seemed as home to me.
I was baptized the 20 January 1876 in Aalborg, Denmark by Elder G. Nielsen.
I filled a two year mission, being sent by President K. H. Brown. I was ordained an Elder 26 August 1877 by President N. M. Petersen in the Hjorring Branch.
I also spent two years in the Danish Army.
On the 27 of June 1878, I sailed from Denmark ono the steamship Loland and landed in New Castle, England at sunrise the morning of the 28. I went forth to inquire about the railroad station where I could buy a ticket that would take me across England to the Atlantic Ocean. I arrived in Liverpool at three o' clock in the morning of the 29 and took a cab to the Mormon Mission Headquarters. There the brethren received me kindly and sent a young man (who spoke Danish; having been born in Denmark) to be my escort for the day and show me the town; which he did in a very kindly manner.
When we returned to the office I was informed that it would cost me five pound sterling from there to New York; but in a week a company of Saints were leaving and if I would wait it would only cost four pounds, if I went with them.
I arrived in America on the 16 July. I worked in Chicago on month, and Valpariso three months, leaving there on the 16 November. I arrived in Salt Lake City on the 22 November 1878. I remained in Salt Lake only four days leaving on the 26 arriving in Gunnison, Sanpete County on the 16 December.
I was married to Ane Marie Christensen on the 16 October 1883, in Levan, Juab County, Utah.
We soon moved to Manti where I helped in building the Temple, after which we moved to Mayfield on the 7 April 1884. Here our daughter Mary was born on the 30 August 1884 and our son Eyner on the 21 August, two years later. We moved to Scipio, Millard County on the 19 April 1888, and here our daughter Lorena was born on the 29 January 1889. From here we moved to Redmond, Sevier County on the 31 May 1890. Here I made adobes and boiled salt. We hauled the brine from salt springs and boiled it down in a large vat and produced salt. I also sold fish taken from Utah Lake and hauled them to customers as far North as Farmington, Davis County, Utah, sometimes. Here three of our children were born, Jens Sylvester on the 31 of October 1890 and he died on Christmas Day, the same year. Arthur was born the 31 May 1893 and Ruby on the 9 August 1895. Mary was baptized on the 30 July 1893 and Eyner 16 August 1896.
We left there and moved to Salt Lake City on the 16 September 1891. On the 15 June 1897 we bought ten acres of land on Sandy Bench. On the 11 September we moved to this location. Here we resolved to build us a home and serve the Lord as best we could in accordance with the wisdom and strength that the Lord in His mercy would bestow upon us.
Then in 1905 the Ute Indian Reservation comprising part of the Uintah and Wasatch Counties was thrown open for settlement and we decided to make our home in that part of the country. Consequently, on the 20 May 1906 we left Sandy and arrived a short distance North of what is now Duchesne where we took up a homestead of 160 acres. As time went on we built us a home in town.
24. Niels C. CHRISTENSEN was born 8 Apr 1815 in Sulbeck, Denmark. He died 18 Jul 1882 in Tamstrup, Torslev, Hjorring, Amt. He was sealed to his parents on 25 Mar 1966 in the Salt Lake temple. Niels was baptized 1878. He was endowed 18 Dec 1912. Niels married Maren JENSEN on 27 Dec 1851 in Denmark. They were sealed 19 Dec 1912. [Parents] [Notes]
25. Maren JENSEN was born 28 Feb 1818 in Terslev, Sovgan, Denmark and was christened 28 Feb 1818 in Oustrup Molle, Jerslev, Hjorr, Denm. She died 1895 in Torslev, Sogn, Denmark. She was sealed to her parents on 16 Jun 1927. Maren was baptized about 1890. She was endowed 18 Dec 1912. [Parents] [Child]
