Jens J. DAHL

Mirage Flats Cemetery
Sheridan County,


“The community had barely adjusted to these deaths when Jens Dahl was stricken with Brights’ disease and kidney failure. He died on May 2. Sofie grieved that she could not bury him beside his infant son in Nysted, instead agreed to lay him in the cemetery four graves down from Carl Smith and the three Andersen graves. Her five children, the oldest 14, the youngest only six, helped Sofie with the farm work until they were grown.”
