Elizabeth Mortensen

Her given name is spelled "Elisabeth" on the ship passenger list. Local church financial records noted that Karen Mortensen traveled in the William Preston company. We have chosen to rely on Morten Mortensen's memory of the company his family traveled in, but lacking rosters for both companies, it is possible they traveled in the Preston company.
