Niels Pedersen Bertelsen

Niels, his wife Maren and their youngest daughter Christiana crossed the Atlantic on the ship "Consignment" in 1863. This fact, plus evidence from Perpetual Emigrating Fund records and Niels' obituary proves that the Bertelsens crossed the plains in 1863 but these records do not name the pioneer company with which they traveled.  Additional research is needed.
