Jens Jensen

Evidence from church (Perpetual Emigrating Fund) and genealogical records proves the Jensen family traveled to Utah in 1862.

His birth and death dates are confirmed by his obituary.

A secondary source states that the family came to Utah with the 1862 Madsen Company, but further research is needed to confirm this information.
