Dorthe Sophie Nielsen Jensen

  • Birth 24 Feb 1837 Denmark
  • Death 16 May 1920 Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
  • Burial Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
  • Plot Sec-17 Lot-246 Sp-1
  • Memorial ID 14440523

Although her grave indicates her name is Sophie, her death certificate lists her given first name as Dorotheia. Either way, Sophie was what she was called. She came with her three daughters from Denmark, and lived with relatives in Lincoln until she died. It is not known why her husband did not come with them.

Update: Parish records confirm that her given name in Denmark was "Dorthe Sophie Nielsen." Her husband was Morten Jensen, and he remained in Denmark, probably deceased before they left.
