Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg History - Part 1

Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg Part 1 of 2
Born 22 January 1889 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah and Died 11 October 1985 in Arco, Idaho

Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg's birth mother was Hilda Jensen Jensen (1862-1954 - maiden name the same as her married name) and Hazel's birth father was Hans Peter Jensen (1858-1937). Hilda was 27 years old when Hazel was born in Mt. Pleasant, Utah. Hazel was their 4th born child. Photos of her birth parents.
At birth, Hazel was adopted by her great-aunt and uncle, Hanna (Perrson) Jensen Anderson (b 1841, d 13 May 1925) and Claus Anderson (b 1838 in Sweden, d 6 Jan 1923). Hanna was Hilda's father's, Andrew Peter Jensen (1837-1921) sister. Claus Wilhelm Anderson (born 1 Apr 1838 in Sweden and died 6 Jan 1923 in Mount Pleasant, Sanpete, Utah. Claus immigrated in 1867 from Sweden and Hanna immigrated in 1871. Claus and Hanna were married  25 June 1873 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah. Photos of her adoptive parents followed by their genogram.

Claus W. Anderson immigrated to Utah with his parents, Joseph Anderson and Marie Christena Lundberg Anderson in 1861. They settled in Mt. Pleasant, Utah. 

Claus Anderson took part in the Black Hawk Indian War and was awarded a $12/month pension as a result.

Hanna Jensen Anderson immigrated  to Utah after her first marriage in Sweden in 1871. Hannah’s father was Per Jensen (b 22 Feb 1801 in Sweden) and her mother was Hannah Hansen (b 12 May 1811 in Sweden).

Hanna was 48 years old when she and Claus adopted Hazel.

Hanna had been married in Sweden prior to 1871 and had four children there. It was said that her husband and all four children died in Sweden, however, this may not be completely accurate as a record from the John Heber Stansfield History (married to Elvina Elvira or Mina Jensen) that Hanna left her first husband, Hans Andersson, in Sweden to immigrate with the Mormon Saints to Utah in 1871 leaving behind at least one daughter, Kjersinta, and bringing one daughter with her, Hanna. Her two other children with Hans Andersson had died in Sweden - a daughter name unknown and a son, Anders who died at age 1 year.

Hanna Perrson (Jensen) Anderrson Anderson came to Mt. Pleasant, Utah in 1871 where she was married to Claus W. Anderson (alternate name Clas Wilhelm Josephsson or Anderson, son of Joseph and Marie Hogenson Anderson) on 25 June 1873. Claus had a sister, Matilda Josephine Anderson (b Mar 1853 and d 1936) aka Mrs. James Burns, Rodolphus N. Bennett. Matilda Josephine Burns Bennett first married Sheriff James Burns in 1869. Sheriff Burns was killed by outlaws in Spring City. Matilida  married a second time to Rodolphus N. Bennett in 1902. Five children survived Matilda Anderson Burns Bennett.
    • Mrs. Lydia Williams, Willow Creek
    • A. A. Burns, Willow Creek
    • Mrs. Beatrice Olson, Mt. Pleasant
    • J.H. Burns, Marysvale
    • Reed Burns, Manhattan Beach, California
Claus also had a brother, Oscar Anderson (1849 -1936), of Mt. Pleasant, Utah married to Chastie N Anderson (1860-1939). They had a son, Gerald L. Anderson born 6 Aug 1891 and died 23 Apr 1912 at the age of 20 years.

Hannah and Claus Anderson had five children and only two survived to adulthood, William Clarence Anderson (1874-1965) and adopted great-niece, Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg (1889-1985).

Hence, Hazel's adoptive mother was really her Great-Aunt on the paternal side. She probably did not learn of her adoption until she was in her mid-thirties.

Hazel's adoptive mother, Hanna Perrson (Jensen) Anderson was a twin with Anna Jensen Fredricksen (1841-1929). Twin Anna was married to Lars Peter Fredricksen (1840-1914) on 11 March 1964. Anna Jensen Fredricksen came to Mt. Pleasant, Utah in 1862 with her brother, Neils (or Nils) Jensen after the death of her father, Neils (or Nils) Jensen (same name as son). Anna Jensen and Lars Peter Fredricksen had eleven children.

Hazel's adoptive father, Claus W. Anderson (1838-1923) was really her Great Uncle by marriage and he was one of the pioneer founding fathers of Mt. Pleasant, Sanpete, Utah immigrating from Sweden in 1866, as was her Grandfather (by birth) Andrew Peter Jensen (1837-1921).

Hazel listed with her birth siblings:
Alvin Peter Jensen (Wife May Woodward) (1884-1946)
Aldeva Hilda Jensen (1886-1957)
Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg (husband Maple H. Lundberg) (1889-1985)
Percy Clifford Jensen (1891-1981)
May Chrystal Anna Jensen Phillips (husband Douglas B. Phillips) (1892-1974)
Alta Lavon Jensen Turner (husband William Turner; husband Gilbert Rhees) (1895-1977)
Nora Marston Jensen Newton (husband Edgar Leon Newton) (1897-1992)

Hazel listed with her adoptive siblings:
William Clarence Anderson (1874-1965). William aka Will was really Hazel's great-cousin since his mother, Hannah Perrson (Jensen) Anderson was Hazel's adoptive mother and Hannah was the Aunt to Hilda Jensen Jensen, Hazel's birth mother.
William Clarence Anderson (b 17 Mar 1874, d 22 Sept 1965) married Bertha Elizabeth Young Anderson (b 20 Sept 1878, d 11 Feb 1970) on 7 Nov 1898. They had 5 children:

  • Nathella Mary Anderson Hughes (b 22 Sept 1899, ), Melba, Idaho
  • Donald Edward Anderson (b 15 May 1903, d 26 May 1989)
  • Dorothea Constance Anderson Simmons (b 22 Aug 1908, d 2 Dec 1971) Salt Lake City, Utah
  • Clarence William Anderson (b  8 Sept 1912, d Sept 1981); Los Angeles, California
  •  ?
Hanna and Claus had four other unknown children who did not survive to adulthood included twin sons. Hanna had one son and one daughter with first husband, Hans Anderrson and they appeared to have died in Sweden and twin sons with Claus Anderson in Mt. Pleasant, Utah that also died early.

Hazel’s Childhood in Mt. Pleasant, Utah:
Hazel lived at home in Mt. Pleasant, Utah with her adoptive parents Claus Anderson and Hanna Jensen Anderson and her older brother, William Clarence Anderson (born 17 March 1874 and died 22 September 1965) who was 15 years old when Hazel was adopted. Here is their family home in Mt. Pleasant, Utah which still stands today in 2013 located at 308 Douth West, Mt. Pleasant, Utah Plat A Block 66 Lot 1.
