    Notes 

    • (1) Source: The Parent-Frost Families Organization website <http://parentfrost.netfirms.com>. According to this website:

      The Frost and J??rgensen lines are among the earliest Danish converts to Mormonism (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). They gathered in Copenhagen, emigrating via Kiel, Altona, and Hamburg to England, completing a rail crossing, then by sea to America via the Liverpool to New Orleans Route, transferring to a paddle-wheeler up the Mississippi River to Council Bluffs in Iowa, and finally making the arduous wagon trek across the vast plains and Rocky Mountain continental divide to Utah-all prior to the construction of the transcontinental railroad.

      [Note by compiler: The compiler is uncertain how much of the immediately preceding paragraph is applicable to Peter FROST, since he did not emigrate to the U.S. until 1879, or about 10 years after the transcontinental railroad was ceremonially completed on May 10, 1869, at the famous "golden spike" event at Promontory Summit, UT.]
