    • (Research):1877 page 97
    • !Ordinances: Was rebaptized 3 Aug 1883.
      !NAME: Was married under the name of Bollette Maria CHRISTENSEN.

      She was the daughter of Rasmus CHRISTENSEN and Dorthea Marie JENSEN (JENSDATTER).

      Her name is pronounced "Boletta Maria". Before her marriage, she was known as either Bolette Marie RASMUSSEN or Bolette Marie CHRISTENSEN (her father was Rasmus Christensen; sometimes his children used the patronymic name, Rasmussen, and sometimes their father's surname, Christensen).

      Niels Aagard was an L.D.S. Bishop (local church leader, at that time responsible for both religious and civil matters) in Levan, Juab County, Utah. His first wife Sorene (pronounced "Serina") was unable to have children, so at the urging of Church leaders, he married a second (plural) wife, Bolette Marie Rasmussen, a young immigrant girl from Denmark, on 29 Dec 1877. Bolette was required to give up her first two children to Niels's first wife, Sorene, to raise. When Boletta's firstborn child died; she was told that one didn't count. Her second child, Mary, and third child, Niels, were given to Sorene. She had five children in all.

      Sorene frequently became jealous and made life miserable for Bolette. On one occasion when Bolette was sick in bed, Sorene crossed the street to her house and began to beat Bolette and drag her out of bed, breaking Bolette's arm in the process. Although Sorene was given two of Bolette's children to raise, the oldest son, Niels, later returned to his own mother (see 1900 census, below). Sorene was living alone at the time of the 1900 census.
