Seier and Ane Marie worked and lived at the same farm with the family of Niels Pedersen according to 1860 census for Tiset, Ning, Arhus and this is probably where they met.
Ane Marie Jensen was the first child born to Jens Nielsen (farmer at Slet, Tranbjerg parish, Aarhus, Denmark; born November 28, 1790 at Tranbjerg) and, his wife, Maren Sorensdatter (born July16, 1799 at Tranbjerg). Ane Marie Jensen was born May 24, 1832 in Slet, Tranbjerg Parish and christened in the Tranbjerg Church July 1, 1832 (Church Records, Tranbjerg, Aarhus, Denmark, 1738-1873, Film 0043914, Bk 9, page 81, #3 Sleth).
Seier and Annie Marie were married 25 Sep 1861 at Tiset, Aarhus. Denmark.

Information we have indicates that Jens Jensen, the second child of Seier and Annie died of measles on board ship (B S Kimball) on the Atlantic Ocean on June 23, 1865, and was buried at sea. This information comes from Seier's Servant Conduct Book kept by Seier. The ship arrived in New York on June 14, 1865. Maybe the information was recorded later and Jens actually died on May 23 and was the child noted as buried at sea by Per Olaf Holmgren on May 25. It was the custom that will always be remembered, and is very sad to contemplate. Little Jens' corpse was wrapped in a blanket with weights attached and then placed upon a plank out over the ocean. After a short service the plank was lifted and the body dropped into the ocean.
In 1859, Florence, Nebraska (formerly Winter Quarters), was selected as the main outfitting place for the Saints crossing the plains and mountains to Utah, and thus it was continued until 1864, when the village of Wyoming, Nebraska, situated about seven miles north of Nebraska City, on the west bank of the Missouri River, was chosen as the place from which the Church trains and other trains started for the Great Salt Lake Valley. Wyoming was the outfitting place in 1864, 1865 and 1866 and it was from this insignificant little village that the last Church trains making the journey all the way from the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains commenced their travels across the plains.
Our records (Seier"s Servant Conduct Book) indicate that Seier (Cyrus) and Ane Marie's third child Niels or Jens was Born 12 July 1865 in Wyoming. He and his Mother Ane Marie Jensen died on 26 July 1865 in Wyoming. It has been assumed that this was the state of Wyoming, however the Scandinavian Mission History indicates that at this time the Saints were preparing to move on to Utah and were outfitting in Wyoming, Otoe County, Nebraska. It is likely that Niels or Jens and his mother Ane Marie Jensen were buried in the cemetery at Wyoming, Nebraska. Today the town is a deserted hillside and cemetery. (We [Lee and Phyllis Jensen] were at Wyoming, Nebraska in May 2000. The town was marked by an wooden archway with the name Wyoming on it and some old weathered picnic tables. In the short time we were there we did not locate the cemetery. The area is private property.)
