      Thomas Wangsgaard told this story to Arvilla Rae Sanders Moore in April,
      1961. "Great, Great Grandfather, Christen W., and Great Grandfather Peter,
      walked across the plains from Omaha, Nebrasks, to Salt Lake City, Utah.
      Great Grandmother Ingaborg Neilson came six years later with a family. She
      was nineteen. She helped the family care for the children. They left from
      Grand Island, Nebraska. She carried a baby or pushed a handcart all the way
      across the plains.
      When she arrived in Salt Lake the husband of the family she came with
      wanted to take her as a second wife, but she wouldn't do it.
      She met Peter, a widower with two children, and married in the Endowment
      House.
      Peter quit the church.
      Ingaborg had thirteen children and raised twelve besides Peter's two
      children.
      The youngest of Peter's two children died and left two boys for her to
      raise.
