Wordless Wednesday -- Hans Christophersen
Hans Christophersen was my great-great grandmother's (Jonette Kristoffersdatter) brother. He was one of three siblings who left Norway for Salt Lake City, Utah, as well as their mother, Ellen Hansdatter. He was born 7 June 1856 in Baerum, Norway, and died in SLC, Utah, on the 30th of January 1938. He was a landscaper and member of the Utah legislature. When I first saw this picture, I was astounded at the resemblance to my grandmother and her family. This picture was sent to me by one of his descendants, and I am so grateful!
