Christina Danielsson Asklund

Christina was a widow. Her birth and death dates are confirmed by the inscription on her gravestone. An infant, Oscar F. Asklund, is listed with the family on the 1864 Monarch of the Sea ship manifest, but we have not been able to confirm that he survived and arrived in Utah with his mother.
