Hi, this is Jill JESSEN I have copied a message from my uncle Norman JESSEN posted several years ago to see IF we get any hits on the information listed.
My father Richard Leroy JESSEN was born in Council Bluffs Iowa where his grandfather migrated from Denmark in the 1880's.
When you are looking for DANISH relations do not discount that they may have been born in Denmark WHEN it WAS GERMANY, the borders changed very often, for decades!
anyone realted to these Jessen's please reply: Jessen, Jes 1859 Abenra, Denmark by Norman Jacob Jessenof 135
I discovered Jes Jessen as having imigrated from Denmark to Council Bluffs, Iowa. He died there 14 July 1938 and his wife, Anna Regina Andersen Jessen died there on 14 Nov. 1949. I now wish to find his children, Anna, Jakob, Maria, and Vilhelm Jessen and their descendents.
