Karen Marie Sorensen Hansen

Survival was a constant struggle for the peasants of Denmark in the 1850s. At ten years of age, Great-grandmother Karen Marie was sent begging to neighboring villages to put food on her family’s table. But she was able to attend school and was intelligent and resourceful. As a young woman she worked long hours as a dairymaid. She saw no immediate way to change her future until two Danes returned to their native land and taught her family the restored gospel. Her mother and siblings immigrated to Utah in 1862. When their finances were not enough to make the trip together, her boyfriend sent her on to “the promise land” alone. In 1868 she survived a very unpleasant passage on the last “sailing” ship commissioned by the Church. Then she traveled with the last Church-commissioned wagontrain into the Utah Territory. But life does not always go as planned. When she arrived in Utah, she found he mother had remarried and their was now place for her in the small home. She felt compelled to accepted a proposal of marriage from Niels Christian Christensen, giving up the boyfriend who arrived over a year later. Through the years Karen Marie and Niels Christian Christensen developed a fine dairy and farm. Niels worked the land and handled the livestock; Karen Marie helped milk the cows, until the children were old enough to take over, and tended to the house chores and her flower garden. She grew a beautiful garden full of irises, pansies, and hollyhocks. She Niels Christian had eleven children—six of whom made it to adulthood. Great-grandmother went by the first name of Carolyn during her life in Hyrum. In her later life, a series of strokes took their toll on Karen Marie’s mind as well as her body. And in this state, it was at the gate that Karen Marie often stood and looked longingly down the empty road.

Niels Christian Christensen & Karen Marie Sorenson

KAREN MARIE SORENSON: On March 25, 1868, Niels Christian Christensen, then 24 years old, married Karen Marie Sorenson, who came to America as a convert to the Church at a time after the arrival of those in the large company who left May 2, 1860. Karen Marie had come to Hyrum, Utah, to be with her mother, Karen Sorenson, who had left Denmark earlier. Niels Christian and Karen Marie were the parents of 11 children: Christian H. and a twin brother or sister who died at birth — were born November 17, 1869; Caroline Marie — born March 8, 1871; Ana Christine — born July 27, 1873; Emma Hedevigd — born January 16, 1875; Peter — born December 28, 1876; Henry — born May 18, 1878; Nephi — born December 9, 1880; Willard Richard — born January 26, 1883; James 0. — born March 20, 1884; John —born February 18, 1886. Niels Christian was a man of great faith. He seemed to be especially gifted with the power of healing and was called upon to administer to the sick often. Night or day, he was ready to give this service. He maintained a small home and a small farm, as well as purchased land in Hyrum College Ward which was about 15 miles to the northwest of Hyrum. He was always grateful for his condition in life and felt he had plenty for his own and some to share with widows who were in need. Each time he exchanged wheat for flour at the mill, he always found a place for a few sacks before he reached home with his share. His desire was always to be a devoted member of the Church. He was one who wanted praise, he was just a quiet, humble servant. He was considerate of everyone’s needs, even driving along the road he would pull of for others to pass in safety. He was a hard worker who spent long hours on the farm; not always doing his own work, hut helping anyone he met who was in need. Ever since he joined the Church, he worked with zeal and energy for the advancement of truth among his fellowmen. He would often walk several miles out of Hyrum to work on the church farm. He would take a lunch, and at noon, he would wash his face and hands and ask blessing on the food and then eat. His life span was 61 years. He underwent an operation for a hernia and did not survive the anesthesia. In those days, doctors were not as skilled, nor did they have favorable conditions for their patients. The operation was performed in the home. He died April 1, 1905 in Hyrum, Utah. This was a great shock to the family as he had always been so active. At the time of his demise, he held the office of High Priest. (The picture of Niels Christian Christensen seated with his family is super imposed. Irven Christensen said that if it were true to life he would be much larger.)

Karen Marie Christensen (Sorensen) was 18 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Karen Marie Christensen (Sorensen) was 28 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Karen Marie Christensen (Sorensen) was 36 years old when Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a machine that can record and play sound. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Karen Marie Christensen (Sorensen) was 42 years old when Eruption of Krakatoa: Four enormous explosions destroy the island of Krakatoa and cause years of climate change. The 1883 eruption of Krakatoa in the Dutch East Indies began in the afternoon of Sunday, 26 August 1883, and peaked in the late morning of Monday, 27 August when over 70% of the island and its surrounding archipelago were destroyed as it collapsed into a caldera. Additional seismic activity was reported to have continued until February 1884, though reports of seismic activity after October 1883 were later dismissed by Rogier Verbeek's investigation into the eruption. The 1883 eruption was one of the deadliest and most destructive volcanic events in recorded history. At least 36,417 deaths are attributed to the eruption and the tsunamis it created. Significant additional effects were also felt around the world in the days and weeks after the volcano's eruption.
