I am still seeking information on Niels Christensen details as per subject. I believe his parents were Envold (possibly Enevold) Christensen and Maren Gregersen. At age 14 (1866) he and a lifelong friend Alex Larsen left home to work on a boat sailing to Tronheim, bringing frozen cod south. They reached Able Seaman status and possibly joined the Danish Navy before ending up in Argentina where he may have been a farmer for some time. Although he was born as Niels Christensen he eventually became known as Niels Christian Madsen Christensen because a person known as Christian Madsen gave him some money before he left home. Both Niels and Alex Larsen eventually ended up in Australia (North Queensland) and later in Hervey Bay and Maryborough in Queensland. I cannot locate any of these names in the census data so I can only presume that it has not been copied yet. Can anyone please help?
