Ralph, I can't believe I posted my message in complete error. What I meant to say was that Han Jurgensen (b. 1826) married Christina Magdelena Jessen. They had son Thomas Jurgensen (1850- 1912, in schleswig-holstein). thomas then married Anna Maria Rathje (1851-1922) and they had something like 14 kids.
There may be a typo with Christina Magdelena Jessen's spelling of her name (this was translated from a 100 year old piece of paper in a very old-German font that is impossible to read, this name is close to the spelling of Catharina Jensen). Can you tell me what town Josias Jurgensen was born? His age was within 2 years Thomas Jurgensen's (b. 1851).
