Peter Olsen and Sarah Julia Hepworth

     What a cute match.  Peter Olsen is twenty three and Sarah Julia is twenty one.  They were married on 23 December 1872 in the St. Marks Episcopal Church in Salt Lake City.
    Sarah Julia was born to Thomas Hepworth and Mary Fletcher in Liverpool, England on 6 March 1851.  She was one year old when she sailed the ocean and crossed the plains; arriving in The Salt Lake Territory in 1852.
   Peter was born on 26 December 1848 in Copenhagen Denmark.  His parents are Soren Christian Olsen and Maren Mortensen.
   I don't have much information on this family.  They had two girls Mary and Katie.
Peter died at the young age of fify nine in Los Angeles California on 29 April 1908 and is buried in Salt Lake City.   Sarah Julia died in Salt Lake City on 1 April 1924.

What I have about Peter was that he crossed the plaines with the Captain Nebekers Handcart Company with his parents at 18 and then went back and did it again. He worked for Kahn Brothers in Salt lake as a financial Clerk. That he took up homesteading in Cottonwood Canyon.
