James Christensen

James Christensen died Saturday November 13 in the home of his daughter Mrs. Inga Peterson. He has been in poor health for the past two years.

Mr. Christensen was born in Norway June 13, 1853. He embraced the gospel when a young man and came to Utah. As soon as he was able financially he sent back to Norway for his parents and four sisters.

They were among the first settlers in Oasis. He was a lover of music and song and played the accordion for all dances and led the choir for many years. He was a devoted church worker and a good neighbor and friends to all who knew him. He was familiarly known to the people of Oasis as "Depo Chris".

Impressive funeral services were held Monday in the Oasis Ward chapel.
He married Matilda Iverson on October 10th, 1886 in the Endowment house. To them were born ten children four of whom survive.

His wife died three months ago and a daughter Nora Hatton died Nov 8. He leaves the following children: Mrs. Inga Peterson, Mrs. Laura Nichols, Edwin Christensen and Norvel Christensen, all of Oasis, two sisters, Mrs. Josephine Anderson, Provo and Mrs. Korn Thompson, California.
