Karen Jensen Nielsen
Birth: May 13, 1837, Denmark
Death: Feb. 14, 1904

Daughter of boelsmand Jens Pedersen Nordensgaard and Maren Nielsdatter. Married Peder K. Nielsen on Jan. 19, 1859. Peder passed away in May of 1881 and Karen and her children slowly immigrated to America. Karen and two of her children left about 1890. Karen lived with the Christen Nielsen family South of Cedar Falls, Iowa in Black Hawk township of Black Hawk County. She often visited her other children and lent a helping hand where needed. She brought her feathertick along with her and slept under it even in Iowa's hot August weather! Her lst vist was in Nov. of 1902 when she went to Petrines for her grandaughter Mables birth and stayed one month. On Valentines Day in 1904, she passed away and the funeral was on a very snowy, bitter cold day. She was "laid to rest" just inside the gates of Elmwood Cemetery in Waterloo, Iowa. My great great grandmother.
