Caroline Wilhelmine Johnson was born January 15, 1836 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her father was Mangus Johnson and her mother Kirsteen Ipson. She joined the church and migrated to Fairview, Sanpete, Utah where she met Lindsey Anderson Brady and married him on October 17, 1863 in the Endowment House in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The next few years were busy, productive and happy years for Caroline. they lived humbly in a small farming community, building, planting crops, raising their children and living active full lives close to the earth. here close to the mountains and valleys they made their first home.
Caroline was a small dainty woman, an immaculate housekeeper and a good cook, a daughter of good pioneer hardworking people. My great-grand-father, Lindsay Anderson Brady was also a humble hard working man.
To this union four children were born;
1. Lindsena Christine Brady who married Charles Cuillard
2. Elizabeth Rebecca Brady who married George Thompson
3. Milton Steven Brady who married first Georgana Hamilton and second, Katrinka Maria Eriksen.
4. Caroline Brady who married first George Alma Atkin and second, William James Roach.
Caroline W. and Lindsay A. Brady worked diligently in the different organizations of the church taking their family with them. Caroline worked in the Manti temple many years and especially in the Relief Society.
Lindsay Anderson Brady died June 26, 1885 and was buried in Fairview, Sanpete, Utah. Caroline Wilhelmine continued to live in Fairview until 1904, when she went to live with her daughter, Caroline B. and William James Roach and children in Spanish Fork, Utah. she was a member of the Second Ward church and continued to be active for the last ten years of her life in the ward.
I was often told about my great-grandmother, by my father, that she was a small dainty little woman and pleasant person she was to be around.
on December 1914 Caroline W. Johnson Brady died. She was survived by her four children, Lindsena Christina Brady Cuillard, Elizabeth Rebecca Brady Thompson, Milton Steven Brady and Caroline Brady Roach.
