About Dorthea Christine Madsen (Jensen)

Her headstone reads, "We've said goodbye to Mother Dear. She's gone to dwell above. She left a noble record here, but took with her our love." Thanks to Leslie Ann Ballou for sending this to me. She volunteers for Find A Grave Dot Com and has her own blog entitled, Ancestors Live Here. Dorthea was our third great grandmother. The following excerpt from a diary kept by my great grandmother, Dortha Roxanna Madsen Rollins McKinney talks about her grandmother, Dorthea Christine Jensen Madsen: ".....My grandmother on father's side was an expert seamstress and tailor. She made mens suits out of cloth she wove on her own loom which was as fine as any sold from stores. Another thing my grandmother did was make beer to serve to the farm hands in summer time. I have watched her take the sprouted grain, brown it in the oven, add water and yeast and put in the wooden kegs."
