In the Spring of 1866, another call was made by the Church for men to go to the east for Emigrants and this year Hans Brotherson, Charley Hampshire, George Tuft, Christian Peterson (Peel), Neils Jensen, Hans Scholf, Frederick Peterson, Neils Lund and August Manier, with Laman Pete as Night Guard. They were fitted out by us and at once went to Salt Lake City and
They managed to keep at a safe distance from the troops and enjoyed the
fruit of their many exploits during the winter months and made their

July 15th, 1866 my wife gave birth to a girl. We gave her the name of Emma.
She, however, only lived a few hours and died the same day and was buried
in our City Cemetery.
