Angeline, as she was known by her family and friends, was born to Rasmus and Hanna Persson Petersen, 21 May 1869 in Pleasant Grove, Utah County, Territory of Utah. The eldest of a family of five children, her parents were of Scandinavian descent. Records of the Pleasant Grove Ward indicate that Angeline received her name and a blessing under the hands of Lewis Harvey 1 July 1869. Contemporary with these family dates, other events of historical significance were transpiring. The Indian uprisings and embattlements were gradually coming to a close in the Utah Territory. The driving of the "Golden Spike" at Promontory Point, north of Great Salt Lake, took place eleven days before Angeline's birth date. It symbolized the closing of the so-called "pioneer period", as the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific joined to complete the first transcontinental railroad on 10 May 1869. The local mineral industry was beginning to boom extending from Tooele Valley and Bingham to Tintic and American Fork Canyon. This was to contribute much to the economic success of the region, supplementing the farming, fruit growing and livestock industries which were basic to the early settlements, the nearby mountains being good grazing lands for the cattle and sheep. to be continued

Son of Swen and Kerstin Olson, was born in the parish of Ifvetofta, Christianstad lan. Sweden, Jan. 4, 1850. He received a good education, graduated with honors from the University of Lund in 1875 and attended a seminary for teachers in Skane in 1882-1883. In 1873 he married Thilda Pehrson, daughter of Pehr Poulson and Maria Sophia Hennig; ten children were born to them. Elder Swenson taught school for fifteen years. Becoming a convert to the gospel, he and his family were baptized June 5, 1892, and in April, 1895 he was called to Copenhagen to labor as a writer for “Nordstjernan.” In 1896 he emigrated and joined his family, who, one by one, as opportunity offered had preceded him to Utah and were located in Pleasant Grove, Utah Co. In 1905 he was called on a mission to Scandinavia to write again for “Nordstjernan.” On the division of the Scandinavian Mission in 1905 the office of the magazine was moved to Stockholm, the headquarters of the new mission. Elder Swenson returned home in 1908, but in November, 1911, he was, for the third time called to edit “Nordstjernan,” in Stockholm, succeeding his son, D.A. Swenson, in that position. While in Sweden he also translated the “Pearl of Great Price” into the Swedish language and returned home in January, 1916. Soon afterwards he became almost blind, but partially regained his sight and again went to Stockholm as writer for “Nordstjernan.” He was, however, released in January, 1920, on account of failing eyesight. After his return from this last mission he devoted himself to Temple work and lived to have ordinances performed for every name on his record. The last two years of his life were spent in total blindness. Brother Swenson died in Salt Lake City, Aug 21, 1925.

Funeral talk for Larsine(Sine)Larsen Radmall

Contributor: Chynna67 Created: 4 years ago Updated: 4 years ago

Funeral Talk for Larsine (Sine) Larsen Radmall January 16, 1944 Pleasant Grove, Utah, Utah, USA We have met together this afternoon to do honor to Sister Sine Radmall and to show our sympathy and respect to her splendid family. Sister Radmall was a lovely woman. She has lived a long and successful life and has now been advanced to the next stage of action to meet her husband, her son and daughter and many other relatives and friends who have preceded her there. I can imagine this will be a happy meeting. How anxiously they will gather around her to greet her and to inquire about conditions and family here upon the earth. Sister Radmall is the mother of 11 children, 7 sons and 4 daughters. Ten of them she raised to maturity. I have known their family well. They are all an honor to their parents, their church, and community. Bro. Alma Radmall Sr. and I were presidents of 44th quorum of seventy together. Vilace is now senior president of this same quorum. In those horse and buggy days we had a great opportunity to become acquainted on our way to and from meetings and visiting our brethren. Later he served in the manila ward bishopric and I was ward clerk. He was a fluent speaker having filled a mission, and had a shining testimony of the gospel. Millan has been our stake clerk ever since our Stake was organized. The beautiful records he is keeping will be a monument to him long after his work here is finished. Vilace is one of our most successful quorum presidents. If there were time I would tell of more of the activities of this splendid family. They are all worthy members of the church and deserve our honor and respect. Bro and Sister Radmall gave one of their choice sons to the service of our country in world war one. Reuben, an outstanding young man was killed in action. This must have been a hard blow for these fond parents and loving brothers and sisters. He lived worthily and died gloriously and will receive his reward. Sister Radmall has four grandsons in the service today; Dr. Dean Anderson, son of Albert and Anne Radmall Anderson, Reed Radmall, son of Alma, and Marvin and Vernon, sons of Nephi. These are all splendid young men, clean in their lives and faithful L.D.S. But the greatest war is not the war fought in Russia or Italy or the isles of the sea. The greatest war is the battle between righteousness and sin. It began before the world was and is fought in the hearts of men. It seems we must learn the folly of sin and the joy of righteousness these experiences we are place here on earth surrounded by all manner of wickedness, murder, war, stealing, selfishness, drunkenness, and disrespect for parents and for God, immorality and all manner of evil. We can see the sorrow and suffering that comes from these things. If we are able to overcome those evils and live the gospel of love and service no matter what are the condition around us, our hearts will be full of joy because we will be at peace with our own conscious. Many have gone to a martyr’s death gloriously happy because they had overcome sin. Having tasted of the bitter, how happy and satisfied we will be when God establishes His kingdom of peace on earth and good will to men. May God bless every member of this choice family. May they appreciate the great blessing that is theirs in coming to earth thru this choice lineage. May they be able to the latest generation to maintain the ideals of their parents is my prayer and I ask it in the mane of Jesus, Amen. Author and speaker unknown.

Life timeline of Christen Larsen

1825
Christen Larsen was born on 1 Sep 1825
Christen Larsen was 6 years old when Charles Darwin embarks on his journey aboard HMS Beagle, during which he will begin to formulate his theory of evolution. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Christen Larsen was 15 years old when Samuel Morse receives the patent for the telegraph. Samuel Finley Breese Morse was an American painter and inventor. After having established his reputation as a portrait painter, in his middle age Morse contributed to the invention of a single-wire telegraph system based on European telegraphs. He was a co-developer of the Morse code and helped to develop the commercial use of telegraphy.
Christen Larsen was 34 years old when Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species. Charles Robert Darwin, was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.
Christen Larsen was 37 years old when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory by January 1, 1863. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
Christen Larsen was 54 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Christen Larsen died on 12 Dec 1881 at the age of 56
