Shared note
Från Ancestry som berättelse men har numera försvunnit: Geisler Family History Compiled by Frank and Zesta Taylor Geisler in 1945. (One of the sources for this section was Hansine Marie Hansen, Frank's aunt) Karen Nielsen, daughter of Jens Niels Nielsen and Jensine Kirsten Pedersen, was born 29 Sept 1852 at Snegleorop, Denmark. She had three older sisters, Sophie who married a brickmaker, Marie who married a tailor, and Christine whose husband was a farmer, and one younger brother, Peter Nielsen. All had large families except Christine who had no children. This sister was an invalid crippled with rheumatism. All the family lived in the icinity of Po Lyng. In a book titled Studsmaalsbog issued to Karen Nielsen of Gudmendrup, Joiby, a Lutheran, when she was confirmed (took a test before the priest) in the Lutheran Church, 17 April 1867, is written "Karen Nielsen graduated from Lyng school in Illingelyng on 2 April 1867 and was given "A's" in all her classes. Karen Nielsen, daughter of Jens Niels Nielsen and Jensine Kirsten Pedersen from Gudmendrup. Karen Nielsen was born 29 Sept 182 and sprinkled (dubt) in Grevinge Church on the 24th of November 1852 and vaccinated 30 Sept 1853 by Dr. Stanghed, the district doctor, and confirmed in the Covenant in Hoiby Church Palm Sunday, 14 April 1867 and was graduated with honor on Skjertors Day (before Thursday, the first time she was a guest at the table of her Lord, or partook of the Sacrament). Hoiby Pastorate 17 April 1867, Ingot (Pastor)" Translation by Maron Jenson. There is a family picture of Karen and her parents taken when she was fifteen years of age, possibly at the time of her confirmation. This same book indicates Karen worked for various people after her graduation, and since this was a farming section, it is possible that she worked milking cows and helping to cook for farm hands. She married Hans Peterson, who was born in 1849 in Hoiby, the same section as Karen lived. His people were farmers so he and Karen made their home on a small farm. Little is known of him except that he had sister, Christine, whom the family visited once shortly before they left Denmark. Hans and Karen had one daughter, Jensine, born at Gudmendrup. Then about one year later he died quite suddenly of a lung condition - possibly pneumonia. Six weeks later a second daughter, Hansine Marie, was born, 12 July 1874 in Gudmendrup. Conditions must have been rather difficult for them after the death of the father, though Sine and Marie had the opportunity of attending school on alternate days. They first attended school at Po Lyng (possibly the Illinge-lyng referred to in the mother's book as it was the old family school maintained by the Church). This section of the country was very picturesque with its stone fences, occasional groves of trees, and well cultivated farms. The children often went gathering wild berries which grew beside the fences. Their road to school let thru a grove or forest as they called it, and tho they were often frightened the distance around the place was prohibitive of their taking another route. Marie was sent as a child to live with her mother's brother, Peter Nielsen, who because he was the only son inherited the farm of his parents. It was a large, well-cultivated place and since his wife came from a prosperous family, they were quite well-to-do. Marie's job was that of general helper and baby tender. Because her uncle was so unkind, it was difficult for the child there and she became very homesick. The uncle later died while still a young man. Karen was a young woman so naturally remarried soon. Her second husband was Anders Peter Hansen, who was born 9 April 1849 at Naerup, Aalborg, Denmark. He was son of Hans Mauritzen and Sissy Andersen. His people, too, lived in the vicinity of Karen's home. The year of their marriage was about 1875 since their oldest child was born in 1876. To this union were born five children: Sissy Olive, who died in infancy, Peter, Alma, August, and Joseph, the last three being born in America. Some time after this marriage Karen and her husband traded the home at Gudmendrup, where his father lived with them, for one on the outskirts of Nykjobing, Po Sjaelland, a small farm which had belonged to Peter's sister, Marie Carlsen. One reason for this move was that Karen wished her children to be able to attend school. Karen was a beautiful seamstress, also did artistic crocheting. She would leave home in early morning, and take orders for soleklader (sunbonnets) then come home and sew to fill the orders. She was assisted in her sewing by a deaf and dumb friend, Juliana who had been her schoolgirl chum. The sunbonnets would be neatly starched, ironed and stacked in a box, then delivered. In the winter she made and sold hoods. They were made of satin, a layer of cotton, then the lining, and around the face would be fur or a ribbon frill. They were made to fit the head closely, then a small cape was made around the throat. She also crocheted collars and cuffs and sold them. All this work kept her very busy. While her mother was rather of plump build, Karen herself was rather slender and about five feet three inches tall. She was always exquisitely neat and well-dressed, tho not extravagantly so. Her usual outfit for wear at parties, etc., was a neat black dress with white crocheted collars and cuffs. Because her husband was employed at a large estate, Karen and he were privileged to associate with the better class of people at harvesting parties, weddings, funerals, etc. Peter was over six feet tall and handsome and he and Karen were an attractive couple. They were beautiful dancers and because of this were often the center of attraction at social gatherings. The message of the Gospel (LDS aka Mormon Church) was brought to Karen and her family by the missionaries who often stayed in their home. She was a great student of the Bible, and as the Mormon beliefs were explained, she, being extremely intelligent, would understand that here was the most sensible explanation of the scriptures that she had ever found so she was converted and baptized in February 1883. There was a great deal of persecution being instigated by the priests in the Lutheran Church; especially in this section of the country. Because of this, Karen's baptism was performed at night in the small canal which crossed their farm. The stream was covered with ice which had to be chopped away before the ceremony could be performed. Karen bore testimony that tho the stream was frozen over, the water did not feel cold, and after her compete immersion in the icy water she suffered no cold nor other ill effects. She returned to the house and hung her wet clothing in the kitchen to dry. Before long her sister-in-law, Christine, Peter Hansen's sister, came into the kitchen, and seeing her wet clothing immediately knew what had happened. "So you've been baptized, eh?" she sneered. Then she ridiculed Karen and spoke in a very hateful, unkind manner to her. All the family were bitter against the Mormons. While her husband accepted the beliefs of the church, he was not baptized until just before leaving Denmark as he felt that he could not stand the sneers of their family and other relatives. As they were practically outcasts, the family arranged to come to Utah to be with the body of the church. Because of this Karen received no part of her inheritance so it took all the money they could obtain from the sale of their home in Nykjobing to pay for their passage. Heirlooms and keepsakes were given to relatives and friends. Karen's father was dead, but her mother was alive. Peter's father was an old man and he cried bitterly for he knew that he would never see them again. They traveled the first day from Nykjobing to Copenhagen where they embarked for America. They came directly to Five Points in Ogden where Peter's sister, Lena Jensen, lived. When they arrived, they had but 22 cents left so they stayed with the sister a short time, then moved into one room just south of Shaw's Store. Peter obtained work for two months at the Salt Flats near Salt Lake and soon, thru united effort, the family were established. Karen and her husband went to the Logan Temple and were endowed 23 May 1888 at which time she and her children were sealed to Peter Hansen. Tho they were very poor and had many hardships, Karen was ever cheerful and pleasant. She was a gifted accordion player and often played for dances, having brought her accordion from Denmark. As was characteristic of the players of that time, she would dance around the floor while playing. The privations and hardships of life proved too much for Karen to bear and she died while still a comparatively young woman, just eleven months after the birth of her last child, 19 May 1892, and was buried two days afterward in the Ogden City Cemetery. So far as is known, she was the only one of her family to join the church (Mormon) and come to America, the others preferring to enjoy a life of comfort in the Old Country. Note: about one year later Peter Hansen marrried Mrs. Mina Forsman Anderson, a young convert from Sweden, who had three small children. To this union were born 5 children: Charles, David, Niels, Omar, and Mina.
