      3. Last name of Westergaard appears to have been added to Frederikke's brothers James and Hans and to mother when they emigrated to America. Was Westergaard and then americanized lated to Westergard. Frederikke's obit. shows ...gaard, however brothers burial records in Ogden show ...gard. The cemetery plat records for James and Hans show their father being Christian Westergard and mother is buried in Ogden next to Frederikke with the same plat records showing "Ane Kjerstine Westergard." Birth name ends in Christensen and not Christensdatter on parish birth records. Other names change as well: Lovise or Louise or Louisa, born Lovise but appears to change in USA; Frederikke or Fredricka, Born Frederikke " " " " " ." Emigration 1879. Confirmation poem and translation for Frederrikke in 1854 in possession of Kerry Petersen.

      4. Emigration was on the Anchor Line ship "California" which was built in 1872. They arrived at Castle Garden in New York 19 Jul 1879. Paul Pedersen (49), Frederikke Pedersen (39), Peder Pedersen (9) and Kristina Pedersen (8) were listed as originally from Denmark.

      5. Copy of handwritten poetry in Danish signed by Frederikke in my possession with the following translation by unknown earlier family member:
      Verse 1
      "Would you like to go to heaven to the home of peace,
      Would you like to live in God's new Jerusalem,
      Would you like to go to a wedding, then ready the lamp,
      Hurry as long as you still have mercy.
      Verse 2
      "Remember that your salvation has cost Jesus' blood,
      Therefore shake your laziness with quick-spirited mood,
      Do you want to go to heaven, you may work for it,
      There is no time to waste.
      Verse 3
      "If the world offers you food, don't take it,
      If it offers you rest, then say no,
      You are priced too high to be wasted,
      By being the world's friend.
      Verse 4
      "If the world offers you its hand, don't take it,
      The world's friendship is not fit for you any more,
      Shake everything away,
      Later on you can rest in Jesus' embrace.
      With best regards, Frederikke Lovise Christensen"

      OBITUARY:
      1. "Peterson. - In Lynne Ward, Weber County, Utah, May 9th, 1885, at four o'clock a.m., after a lingering illness of twelve years, Frederikke Louisa Peterson, aged 45 years and 3 months. She has been a resident of Utah for 6 years, and leaves a husband, 5 children, and a host of friends to mourn her loss. Deceased is a sister of our esteemed citizens James and Hans Westergaard, of Harrisville. The wife of our friend James gave birth to a boy baby three weeks ago, since which time she has been confined to her bed, but was on a very fair way of recovery and was considered out of all danger, but the shock of her sister-in-law's death, disturbed her mind, and although, at six o'clock p.m., she ate a hearty supper and nursed her babe, at 6:30 she took a congestive chill and death seized her in a moment. There being no one present but Miss Margaret Fisher, who had been hired to wait on the house during her sickness. Her husband was in Ogden at the time, arranging for the burial of his sister. The screams of the children soon brought in a few neighbors, and some men travelers who were journeying from Payson to Snake River. Deceased, whose name was Mary Westergaard, was born in Haderilew, Denmark. She came to Utah 12 years ago, and was, at the time of her death, 37 years, 1 month and 3 days old. She leaves a husband, five children and legion of friends to mourn her loss. The funeral obsequies were conducted by Biship P.G. Taylor, at the residence of the deceassed, on Monday, May 11, 1885. Singing by the ward choir under the leadership of R.D. Brown, jun. The speakers were Bishop P.G. Taylor, Counselor W.C. Rawson and Elder Peter Later, who spoke of the good qualities of deceased as a kind mother, a dutiful wife, and a peaceable neighbor. The funeral was quite large, and upon arriving at Lynne, a double funeral cortege was found, with the corpse of her deceased sister-in-law and family and friends, the funeral services of which had been conducted by Counselor R. Christopherson, of Lynne. Mr. Peter Thorstead, of Lynne, decorated the graves with wreaths of beautiful flowers. P.L., Harrisville, May 13th, 1885." No newspaper given but published date is given as Thurs., 14 May 1885, vol. V, no. 11 with clipping - probably of Ogden; Harrisville is suburb of Ogden; statement of 5 children for Frederikke appears to be newspaper error.]
