      Bendt Nielsen was born 6 August 1802 in Taarnhy, Copenhagen, Denmark, t h e son of Niels Bendtsen and Marchen Mogensen. Ane Swendsen was born 8 J an uary 1801 in Taarny, Copenhagen, Denmark, the daughter of Svend Svends e n and Elm Tonnesen. They were descendents of those Holland Colonist bro ug ht to Denmark by the King’s request to do gardening for the royalty an d w ere given the island of Amager which is now part of Copenhagen. Bend t an d Ane became the parents of seven children .
      Bendt served as night watchman for forty years in his own village of Ta a rnby on Amager island. He must have been an honored officer to have he l d this important position for so many years. His duty was to call out e ac h hour, “Two o’clock and all is well.” He also called out conditions o f t he weather. His only weapon of defense was a stick armed on one end w it h spikes. At dawn he retired to his home to rest and sleep for a few h our s. Then he went fishing in a boat and seined a red spotted fish calle d “r od spetter.” His wife Ane would dress and carry the fish to market w ith v egetables and fruits in season. They only had one cherry tree on th e hom e plot but the children never had a cherry, all had to go to marke t to he lp buy the essentials.
      The island of Amager is connected with Copenhagen by a little causewa y o ver which Marchen, the eldest daughter, went to visit her parents an d bro thers and sisters each week. March, also known as Martha was the fi rst t o accept the gospel, hearing it in the early years of it’s introduc tion i nto Denmark under Apostle Erastus Snow. She was baptized in wate r from wh ich two feet of ice had to be cut in order to perform the ordin ance. Sh e hastened to carry the good tidings to her loved ones. Her moth er all bu t disowned her crying, “Our Martha is lost, she has joined thos e awful Mo rmons!” Martha left to go back to Conpenhagen and little Peder , her broth er, ran after her crying, “Marta, come back!” She turned an d said to him , “Never mind, Peder, you will come to America also.” All o f the family i n due time came to America, except the parents, who remain ed until death . Bendt died 6 May 1857 and Ane died 27 June 1862.
