Ellen Marie JENSEN had a few brothers and sisters who also came to the USA and probably Iowa. They might have last names of JESSEN. One of her sister's descendants are still living on Aero, Denmark.
I have a lot of information on Ellen Marie JENSEN's ancestors and descendants but need much more on this family. I have hardly any info on Hans J. NIELSEN before he immigrated. If you are related to either one please don't hesitate to contact me.
