Lucy Jepsen Jacobsen

Members of her family who died en route include: Paul (husband), Rasmus Peter Hansen (adopted nephew/son), and Maren Sophie Jorgensen (adopted niece/daughter). She married Peter Jensen on Aug. 30, 1858, in Utah.

In Denmark she used the name of "Lusie Hansdatter," but it appears that "Lucy Jepsen" is the name she used in the United States.  Her name, birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on her gravestone, in the Find a Grave Index under the name of "Lucy Jepsen Jensen."
