NOTICE:  a matrilineal descendant of Mette Kristine Christenen is participating in the Danish Demes Regional DNA Project.  Anyone who suspects they descend from her on a direct female line can support that connection with an mtDNA test.
Husband:  Lars / Lauritz Christen Larsen DOMGAARD
Birth:  19 Sep 1802, Hals, Hals Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK
Adult Baptism (into Mormonism):  1 Jan 1851, Ålborg, Ålborg Sogn, Fleskum Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK
Death:  4 Oct 1854, Salt Lake Co., UT
Father:  Lars Christensen _____ of Domgaard
Mother:  Elizabeth Larsen _____

A good deal of confusion about our subject's "surname" has resulted from the failure to distinguish between his patronymic (Larsen) and his efternavn (DOMGAARD), and the same problem applies to his children.  Because DOMGAARD was not a "true" surname, it could be dropped at any time in preference to the patronymic because to a Dane (prior to the mid-19th Century) the patronymic was the more important name.  However, if you want to be consistent about his name (and when using computerized databases, this is a must), his full name would be the one I've used above, and only DOMGAARD should be considered a surname.  To more clearly distinguish between patronymics and surnames, I recommend always putting the former in Initial Caps, while always placing the latter in ALL-CAPPS.  Please see this discussion of patroymics and this one on Danish naming practices.

Lars and Lauritz are Danish variations of the Latin name, Laurentius.  Laurtz is a misspelling (apparently someone dropped the "i" and the error has been repeated ever since).

Marriage:  1 Jun 1834, Hals, Hals Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK
Wife:  Mette Kristine Christensen _____
Birth:  4 Feb 1812, Ulsted, Ulsted Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK
Death:  4 Oct 1855, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., UT
Father:  Christen Christensen _____ (1785-1848)
Mother:  Maren Andersen _____ (c1780- ), of Aaby, Åby Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK
Children:
— born in Ulsted, Ulsted Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK:
1.  Elizabeth Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 2 Nov 1834; d. 10 Mar 1921, Mt. Pleasant, Sanpete Co., UT
2.  Laura Jensine Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 12 Nov 1836; d. Nov 1853

— born in Hals, Hals Sogn, Kær Herred, Aalborg Amt, DK:
3.  Johanne Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 22 Sep 1838; d. 22 Dec 1928, St. Anthony, Fremont Co., ID
4.  Anceselie / Ane Cicilia Larsine Larsen DOMGAARD b. 20 Sep 1840
5.  Stine Petrine Frances Marie Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 5 Apr 1843
6.  Lauritz Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 9 Mar 1846; d. 21 Jun 1848
7.  Lauritz Larsen DOMGAARD, b. 2 Aug 1850

The source for the Ulsted location is secondary, so may not be accurate.  Stine is said to have been born in Longesminde, but I can find no such place, at least not officially.  Like Domgaard, it may be a very local name or farm name.

Some secondary sources show Elizabeth as having married Jens (James) HANSEN (JENSEN), and some show Johanne as having married him, each on 9 Nov 1854 in Salt Lake City.  It may very well have been a polygamous marriage with both sisters marrying the same man on the same day (I've seen other such cases among Mormons), or it may be that two men are being mixed up here, as the name certainly suggests.  That is, that the husbands are Jens HANSEN and James JENSEN and they married sisters on the same day in a "double wedding" (a wide-spread custom).

Anceselie and Ane Cicilia (both born in 1840) are surely the same person; the two given names must simply have been run together (as when Mary Ann becomes Maryann).

I can find no such place as "Longesminde."  Was it the name of a farm?
