Bertie Katrina Christiansen

Evidence from genealogical sources and an autobiographical history proves that the Christensen family came to Utah in 1868. The mother died September 1868 in Utah; the history written by the daughter, Kirstine, indicates they came in 1868; died en route. Ship's roster lists her as Nielsen.
