Landon Chronicles (1850-1929): Laurids Jurgen Moeller Mortenson (hour 9, clip 1)
Margaret tells about her family and describes their physical characteristics. She begins with her grandfather, Laurids Jurgen Moeller Mortenson, from Danemark. He managed to come to the US and attended Garrett Biblical Institute. Upon graduation he ministered in a small scandinavian church. Raised in a Lutheran church and now served in a Methodist church, he became so revolted by the political side he discovered in the church that he left and never attended church thereafter.
