    Text: This story was related by Amelia Jenson Topham:
    Peter and Lane [Lena] Sanders Mortenson joined the church in Denmark and were anxious to come to Utah. It was a tremendous undertaking with a large family and a crippled father. Peter was so crippled with rheumatism that he couldn’t walk and had to be pushed in a wheel chair. Their oldest son was called to do missionary work in Denmark and one child had died.
    Peter and Lena started out from Denmark with their eight children. The trip across the plains, in Willies Hand Cart Company, started just two weeks before the ill fated Martin Hand Cart Company, and suffered many hardships. Peter Mortenson, no being able to walk was pulled across the plains to Salt Lake in an old hand-cart by his family and on to Parowan in the winter of 1856. They arrived in Salt Lake City about November 9, 1856. They were immediately sent to Parowan, arriving here sometime in December, 1856. They were wonderfully blessed and made the trip without any serious trouble, being on the road a whole year.
    Upon arriving at Parowan there was no place to house them so the Bishop very graciously opened the doors of the Log Council House to the weary travelers. The spacious fireplace afforded warmth and cheer as well as a place to cook their food. The good people weren’t long in bringing in the straw ticks to sleep on and soon they were comfortably lodged in the meeting house. How thankful they were to be at their journey’s end. Here they lived until a log cabin was ready for them but the nights were so cold that it froze the sack of potatoes that had been given in to them.
    Peter Mortenson was a cooper and shoemaker by trade and although he was unable to walk he could still work with his hands. He helped to make many wooden tubs and buckets and was one of the main ones to help start and operate the wooden tub and bucket factory.
    He managed to keep the little feet of his loved ones covered, making little slippers out of the tops of worn out boots. He’d tack them onto wooden soles made from scraps of lumber that he’d dress down with the grease from bacon rinds to make them hard and irresistible to water and wear; then he’d paint them. The children were Martin, Hans, Anders, Lars—who married Cornelia Decker, Stena—who married Yorgen Hanson, Mettie—who married Christian Rasmussen, Mary—who married Peter M. Jenson, and Caroline—who married Thomas Durham.
    So the Log Council House was not only a church and recreation center, but a haven of rest to those weary feet that had trudged across a continent. As long as Peter Mortenson lived he was pushed and pulled to Church in the old handcart every Sabbath Day.
