Photograph Showcase: Folkman Family

FOLKMAN, Jens Peter, Maren Katrine Thomasen, & Jane Zina Petrina Folkman

Jens Peter Folkman, Maren Katrine Thomasen, & Jane Zina Petrina Folkman

Jens Peter Folkman & Maren Katrine Thomasen are my 3rd great-grandparents.  They were both born in Denmark and immigrated to America as Mormon Pioneers who made their way west to Utah.  They met and married in Utah.  Here they are pictured with their youngest daughter Jane Zina Petrina Folkman, who went by Petrina.  Petrina was born in 1876 and is my 2nd great-grandmother.

I am very familiar with part of this photo.  You see, at some point, someone cropped it down to just Maren’s head.  That cropped photo can be found on FamilySearch and other places online.  Until recently, I had never seen the full image.  What a wonderful find in my Grandmother’s boxes!

 

 

Happy Thursday, I hope you make a fantastic photo discovery very, very soon!  xoxo
