      =================================

      He may have married a second wife, Mary, about 1870 (the 1880 census, Mendon, Cache County, Utah shows a James SORENSEN of about the right age, with wife Mary and several children under age 10, but uncertain if he is the same individual. His first wife, Thomina, was living in Fillmore, Millard Co., Utah in 1880 with her children and was listed as married, but her husband wasn't in the household).
