Jens Christian Hansen b. 15 Oct 1835 Sevel, Ringkjobling, Denmark d.8 May 1914 Spring Glen, Carbon, Utah m 21 Aug 1866 in Denmark

Karen Hansen Sonberg b. 30 Jun 1845 Vejle, Vejle, Denmark d. 14 Jun 1912 Spring Glen, Carbon, Utah.

In Denmark the last name was Hansen but after arriving in the Sevier Valley many of the Scandinavians had the same given names as well as surnames and it was difficult to keep people straight. They often took names of places of their hometown. JCH's great grandfather on his father's side, lived in Sondbjerg Parish Thyholm, Per Thisted, Denmark. His grandmother Birgitte Pedersen was born in Sondbjerb. He left off the "D: and the silent "J" of Sondbjerb and his new name became Sonberg.

JCH and Karen were very dedicated members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
