Orson Larsen (infant)

Born:  10 October 1863; Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah

Died:  20 October 1863, Ephraim, Sanpete County, Utah, (the cause of death is unknown as all seemed well with the baby, but he died in Oluf's arms unexpectantly).  Sealed to parents:  5 January 1999.

Buried:  Oluf says in his journal that Orson Larsen was buried in the same grave with his mother in the Ephraim City Cemetery.

Baby Orson died at twenty days old.  His mother, Emelia died five days prior on 15 Oct 1863.  Information on Orson Larsen seemed to be long lost.  However, research by Robert C. Larsen found information on Orson Larsen on the Ephraim Ward records, Microfilm number 20435.  It is believed that Orson was named after the LDS Apostle Orson Hyde, a friend of Oluf Christian Larsen.
