Soren Jensen, born August 3, 1842, in Vejle, Denmark, was an orphan who emigrated to America in 1864 at the age of 22. The first winter he worked in New York City for a mere $8.00 per month. From there he went to the Sullivan farm in Illinois and in 1864, moved to Omaha, Nebraska where he was employed by the Union Pacific Railroad Company.

Soren Jenson boarded at the Empire House where he met Anne Sine Peterson, who worked there. She had also emigrated from Denmark earlier in 1860 with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jens Petersen. Sine was born January 12, 1848 in Aalburg, Denmark.

On August 27, 1866, Soren Jenson and Anne Sine Petersen were married in Omaha, Nebraska where they lived until after their first child, Anna, was born.

In 1867, they decided to take a homestead and with their covered wagons, their belongings, and the family cow, came to the Lincoln Township in Washington County, Nebraska. They took up their claim where they lived for 35 years.

During this period ten of the children were born, Emma, Jens (James H), Jens (James Peter), Nels, Mary, Andrew, Ester, Edward, Henry, and Albert.

In 1901, Soren and Sine moved to Blair where Sorena and Myrtle were born.
