Re: Niels and Bodel Christoffersen - Tostenes, Denmark
Hans Peter Christoffersen was my granfather. He left Tostenes, Mon, Denmark in the late 1880's by himself to join a sister living in or near Dannebrog, Nebraska. His parents were Niels and Bodel Christoffersen. I have pictures of them and their thatched roof home in Tostenes. He married Anna Sorensen in Nystad (or Dannebrog?), Nebraska. My father, Edgar, was the eldest son, and was born in 1903. The family moved to a rented farm south of Hay Springs, Nebraska in the early 1920's. I was born in 1931. I am a retired pharmacist and owned a drug store in Gordon, Nebraska for many years. My address is 626 Fairview Drive, Gordon, NE, 69343.
