Lars Peter Simonson -> Hoxeyville, MI as Peter Simerson
My GG Grandfather Lars Peter Simonsen left Nykobing Denmark on 4/11/1891 with his wife Johannah Maria Lasnionson and 5 children: Walter, Chris, Fred (hans), William (bill), Henry (Harry), and Hans Leroy. They passed through Ellis Island where Lars Peter Simonsen became known as "Peter Simerson," the name he was buries as 4 years later at the age of 32.
Henry died as a child in 1906. Walter died of "the flu" in 1918, almost certainly a victim of the "Great Flu pandemic of 1918" that killed over 20 million people. The rest of the children lived good long lives and I have much of their family documented at http://www.simerson.org/http://www.simerson.org/
Anyone with more info about my family and particularly about ties in Denmark and finding more info there is welcome to contact me.
