Else Catherine Jensen Christensen

She is listed as "Else C. Jensen" on the European Mission records and "Else Lunstrom" on the Deseret News roster.

There is some confusion as to which company she, her husband, and her son traveled in. They are on the Murdock company roster; however, Jens Christian Andersen Weibye notes that this is his half-sister's daughter who traveled with them.
