Title Life Story of Soren Andersen and Daughter
Description Nine Mile with his daughter, Diantha a, the eldest daughter, and Erastus, Joseph, and Peter, homes leading 160 acres. The Highland Reservoir now covers his original homestead. This was aboui two miles south of Sterling. Fort Ephraim was settled in 1854 by members of the Allred Settlement by immigrants from Scandinavia. Thus our fathers who grubbed the first brush, broke Ihe soil, raised the first crops, and prayed in the first Church were pitting their courage and endurance against a raw and forbidding land. About 1885 Soren Andersen located permanently in Centerfield, Utah, where he resided until the time of his death, February 18, 1901, then making him nearly 100 years old. His long Jife was due lo some extent to his great care of diet, and leading a clean, exemplary life. His daughter, Ana Kjerstena, passed away on October 27, 1914, at Ephraim, Utah at the age of seventy-seven years. She was a faithful Latter-Day Saint, and a good wife and mother to her husband and children. Source: Taken from the Record Book of Katie C. Olsen. Soren Anderson.
