Ole Johan Jacobson: Biography taken from Pioneers and Prominent Men of Utah, p. 956:

“Born March 17, 1824 [March 25, 1922], Christiania [Bergen], Norway. Married Osaa, in Norway. Their children: Matilda (married Frank Hanson); Rachel (married William Dennison); Benjamin; Jacob (married Clara Larson); Calaman (died aged 14-17). Family home Ephraim, Utah.
“Married Caroline Frederickson (Christensen) Ephraim, Utah (daughter of Carl and Annie Frederickeson of Sjelland, Denmark), who was born Dec. 5, 1835, and came to Utah with handcart company. Their children: Daniel John (born March 13, 1874[1875]-married Sophia Schwalbe); David Olius (born Nov 27, 1876-married Juliette Stevens, married Agnes Ellen O'Neil) Family Home Ephraim, Utah.”

The above citation, errors withstanding, introduces the parents of Daniel John Jacobson.

The correct date of his birth is March 25, 1822. This record is from the Bergen County, Domkirken Parish records in Norway, and is pretty good evidence of his birthdate. His parents’ names are Jacob Andreassen and Maren Olsen. Ole’s siblings’ records show their father’s name to be Jacob Jacobsen. Such is the confusion of Scandinavian surnames. Maren’s name is sometimes shown as Olsdatter, etc.

On December 12, 1845, Ole married Aasa Iverson, who was christened on November 23, 1823 in Bergen, Norway, and died in December, 1871 in Ephraim, Utah.7 They had the following children:

Members of the family emigrated to the United States arriving in New York on September 18, 1871 aboard the ship SS Nevada.

They sailed from Liverpool, England. Jacob, Jacobine, Rachel, Benjamin and Carl were with their parents on the voyage. They traveled relatively comfortably on the train to Ogden, arriving on September 27, 1871. They then settled in Ephraim where Aase passed away a short time later in December, 1871.

Ole married Caroline Neilsdatter (or Frederickson, Nelson, Nielsen, etc.) in Ephraim, Utah in 1874. She was the widow of Anton Christensen with several children.
