Title Neils Rasmus Petersen
Description After her husband's death, Jensine lived with Erastus and Ruth. Erastus had trouble with his heart and had to sell his store. On February 26,1883, a Warranty Deed had been recorded from Soren P. Petersen to Neils R. Petersen, containing 1.56 acres, designated as Parcel 2, located at the South end of Manti City limits, with a home located thereon. Jensine C. Petersen deeded to Grace P. Christensen on August 9, 1936, 1.56 acres known as Parcel 2 of the Manti City Survey. Grace P. Christensen then deeded to Ruth M. Petersen, that property known as Parcel 2, on December 9, 1937. Jensine lived with Erastus and Ruth the rest of her life. One night Jensine couldn't sleep. She wandered around the house and then woke Erastus and asked him to sing to her. After a few hymns, she asked him to sing "Myn Little Grimer Lamb" (My Little Pet Lamb), he sang it in Norwegian, which was very much tike Danish. While he was singing she slipped quietly from this life on August 31, 1937. Neils R. could not have accomplished all that he was called to do without the support and hard work of his helpmate, Jensine Caroline. For 1 was hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger and ye took me in: Therefore, ye have done it unto ME. Most of this information was taken from Neils Rasmus and Jensine Caroline's History. Dedication of the North Ward was found in the History of Manti North Ward Chapel, 1908-1973. Records recorded of property located in Manti City were found in the Recorder's Office, Sanpete County Court House. Cause of death for their two young children is in the Manti City Cemetery records. Information about the Center Ward was in Mormon Tabernacle, Manti, Utah 1879-1979. M
