Cibola County

Son of August Henry Tietjen and Ida Fredericka Krueger. Ernst Albert Tietjen was born on 14 September 1849 to German parents in Saken, Sweden. As a boy he was with his father when he rescued two Mormon missionaries from a mob. The Tietjens joined the Church and emigrated to Utah in 1859–60, spending their fortune to bring other members of the Church with them. Ernst made several out-and-back trips as a teenager to help other Saints cross the plains. In 1877 he was called to be a missionary to the Navajos, and he spent the rest of his life in New Mexico. He pioneered Savoya, then Ramah, then Bluewater. Ernst had three wives, Emma O. Erickson, Emma C. Pedersen, and Amanda Hatch, and has numerous descendants throughout the United States. He died 22 February 1925.
