Description trouble as had been the case in times of the earlier pioneers; however, on one occassion a group of Indians swept down upon the girls, taking Janie, the lovely long, fair-haired girl and riding off with her, Kristina being left unharmed The company travel was delayed and scouts were sent out to search for the missing girl, but she was never found Telling about the incident, Kristina always became tearful-her heart aching for Janie and her family Kristina, with the Sanders company, entered the Salt Lake Valley on September 15, 1863 Kristina lived a few years in Salt Lake City She met and married Neils Clemenson, and two children were born to them Neils had married in polygamy, so when difficulty with the U. S. Government arose, it was necessary for Kristina, who was the second wife, to give him up, and they were divorced. Not long after, she married John Nicholi Christensen To this union were born nine children Kristina and Nicholi settled in various towns in Sanpete County and eventually moved to Centerfield and lived there the last fifty years and raised their family She lived a full and useful life, one of many hardships Faith, courage, hard work and determination were her standards She instilled these gospel virtues into the lives of her posterity.
