Jens Christian Jensen/Ane Cathrine Hansdatter Denmark-Nebraska
Seeking any information on ancestors and descendants of Jens Christian Jensen, born 21 Oct 1821 in Bolle, Nordjylland, Denmark and his wife Ane Cathrine Hansdatter, born about 1830 in Nordjyllands, Denmark.Around 1866 or 1867 they moved to Hov (Hou) in the Hals parish.They may have been dairy farmers.They emigrated to the United States around 1880 with at least 8 children. (They had 12 in all.)They were probably in Nebraska by 1885.
Jens Christian's parents were apparently Jens Hansen Smed and Christiane Jensdatter.Is "Smed" his occupation?
Ane Cathrine's parents were apparently Hans Pedersen Hollet and Mette Kirstine Christensdatter.Is Hollet the name of his town?
My direct line comes through Jens C. & Ane's daughter Marie (Mary) B. Jensen, b. 5 Mar 1854 in Asaa, Nordjyllands, who married John Jacob Johnson, born in Bov, Aabenraa, Denmark 15 Aug 1854.
