Re: Ane Gregersen/Gregersdatter - Brejning Beach Dmk
I am researching a Gregerson family that is located in Hojbjerg, V,Denmark. It consists of several name switches of Soren Gregerson and Gregers Sorenson (this due to the Scandinavian custom of taking fathers' first name as last name.)
A more recent part of the family includes a Soren Gregerson (19 Mar 1811-23 Mar 1905) marrying a Karen Marie Jensen (28 Jan 1822-26 Sep 1895) on 21 Oct 1843.
They had eight children: Johan Marie Gregerson, Kirsten Marie Gregerson, Jens Christen Gregerson, Elsie Christine Gregerson, Margarethe Gregerson, Maren Gregerson, Simine Gregerson, and Hans Kobber Gregerson.
Their last name differs between Sorenson and Gregerson. This is because some continued the tradition of taking their father's first name, and others just took his last name.
I am specifically researching Elsie Christine Sorenson/Gregerson's daughter Serine Caroline Gregersen(25 Jan 1874-29 Dec 1940), who was raised by her grandparents. She moved to Utah in the 1870s and married William Frank Christensen 14 May 1890 in Redmond, Sevier, Utah.
If any would like any information, or if they have any to add, please respond.
