Is there anyone searching the Paulsens of Missouri? My Grgrandfather was from Dennmark,came to America when about 12 years of age. I'm told, he changed his name to Paulsen,or Poulson,from Astin,Aston.I do not know if any of these spellings,are correct. He married America Adeline Ragsdale, 27th of April 1879in Laclede Co.Mo.Conway. I found them on 1880 census in Laclede Co.Mo. Grgrandmother,America came to Oklahoma in 1900's date am not sure. She had seven children,Paulsen,and one by Thurman.
