Hans Jensen

Evidence from emigration and genealogy records proves that the Jensen family traveled to Utah in 1857. He died en route. A biographical source stated he was in Captain Morton's handcart company in 1857. If he came in a handcart company in 1857, it likely would have been the Christiansen company composed of Scandinavian emigrants, but there is no one in the company with a name like Morton.
