Published in Richfield Reaper Newspaper 1916-12-02

She was married to Jens Christian Andersen in Denmark when they were both farmer workers on the Hammelmose farm.

They married in the Lutheran church in 1849. Jens became a shoemaker. Around 1855 they heard the Mormon missionaries and joined the LDS church 5 March 1855.

By 3 April 1857, they left Denmark to join the body of the Church in America. They traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark and on 18 April 1857 boarded a steamship which landed at Grimsby, England on the 21st.

Margrethe and Caroline (Jens 2nd wife) each had ten children with Jens. The two families lived on either side of Koosharem, Utah in Grass Valley.

Family tradition has it that Caroline's home is where the Anderson children liked to play the most. Reportedly, Caroline was a small woman, loved by everyone because she was kind and friendly with a happy personality.

Caroline died in Koosharem 11 February 1900 and is buried in the Koosharem Cemetery.

Jens and Margrethe later moved to Richfield where he died 15 August 1910. He and Margrethe are buried in the Richfield City Cemetery.
