Title Neils Rasmus Petersen
Description the blessings of the Lord for your sacrifice and all you have done .... Donations were in various sums which ran from five cents up to $1300.00. Quite a wide range between donors, but we cannot judge who has done the most. Each gave according to their means and the Lord knows. I have never seen a meeting house reared by the Latter-Day Saints where people have responded more willingly or more cheerfully and more promptly than have ours.* The financial statement was then read, seconded, and accepted unanimously by all those present. On February 6, 1914, Annie E Petersen, age 31, wife of Neils C. Petersen, died leaving three small children, four-year-old Rachel, Ralph N.,age 2, and a new-bom son, Hatton. It was only a few hours until Jeosine had them. She moved Neils C. and his children into a room in their home for their belongings and to sleep in. She took care of them as if they were her own. Hatton was a frail baby and be died on July 17, when he was six months old. Rachel and Ralph lived with their grandparents until Neils C. moved to Sterling to work on a farm after he remarried. On August 11, 1917, Neils R. purchased a lot eater-cornered from the home they were living in, described as Lot 4 of Block 63. It appears that Neils R. began to build their new home on Block 63 in February, 1919. When Neils C. moved his family to Sterling, there was no construction started. What they returned to Manti in 1922-23, Neils R. and Jensine were settled in their new home. A letter dated August 30, 1923, to Bishop Neils R. Petersen reads: "Dear Brother: The Stake Clerk has notified this office of your release as Bishop of the Manti North Ward. You have presided in die neighborhood for nineteen years, serving die ward faithfully as its Bishop. Yours has been a labor of love, kindness and mercy, and your name no doubt, will be held in affectionate remembrance by all with whom you have labored: your kindness and helpfulness to all classes has been felt, particularly the poor and needy. Your brethren in the Gospel, THE PRESIDING BISHOPRIC, CW. Nibley. * The people of his ward loved him very much, and to show their appreciation, they presented him with a gold watch. The inscription read: "E. Howard Watch Co. presented to Bishop N.R. Petersen by the members of Manti North Ward, Dec. 18, 1911.* 46
