Sorry, hit the wrong key.
There is an Ellen Margrethe Hansen, widow of Peder Pedersen in my family tree.

My Ellen was the 2nd wife of Jens Pedersen Marcher (spelled Marker in America) and accompanied him to Utah from Bornholm Denmark in 1852/53. The information that I have is:
Ellen Margrethe Hansen was born in 1802 in Bornholm, Denmark. Ellen married Jens Pedersen Marcher on 7 April 1849. She was a widow with 9 children by Pedersen. After converting and joining the Mormon church, Jens and Ellen Marcher left Ostermarie, Bornhold, Denmark in 1852, with his son Peter Marcher and her daughter Helene Kirstine Pedersen and sailed to America to settle in Utah. Ellen died January 12, 1879 and is buried in Manti, Utah. I'm not sure but I don't believe she and Jens had children.

The info I have is from a non-published family history and it includes more about the emigration, Bornholm, and family charts but oriented to the ancestry of Jens Pedersen Marker. The account was put together some time before 1980 by a cousin named Adda Deem Wells and was sent to my grandmother. If you want a copy I can xerox it.
