Thuesens from Osby, Haderslev, Denmark to USA
Looking for Danish relatives and information on ancestry of Jes Fallesen Thuesen and his wife Mette Marie Neilsdatter who married in Osby, Haderslev, Denmark on February 8, 1845. The couple had five children born at Osby as follows:
1. Marien Thuesen b. October 9, 1844
2. Bertel Jessen Thuesen b. January 11, 1847; m. Lina
Bodesen on November 1870 at Osby; d. 1930s or 1940s in
3. Neils Jessen Thuesen b. November 30, 1849; m. Sarah
Elizabeth McKee in Jefferson Co., MO; d. February 12,
1902 at Silica, Jefferson Co., MO
4. Jes (Jesse) Fallessen Thuesen b. December 1851; d. March
4, 1922 at Zion, Jefferson Co., MO (never married).
5. Vilhelm (William) Jessen Thuesen b. June 9, 1854; m.
April 8, 1881 at Osby to Dorothea Bertelsen Vogensen; d.
January 28, 1946 at Turtleville, Rock Co., WI.
Neils and Jesse Thuesen both emigrated to the United States in 1870 and settled in MO.Jesse Thuesen went west to the Dakotas and returned to MO after Neils Thuesens death.Most Thuesens in the USA live in MO and are descended from him.William Thuesen initially settled in MO in 1881, but sufferred heat stroke and moved to WI as a result.
Am very hopeful to hear from relations in Denmark and more than happy to swap/share what I have with anyone.My g-g-grandfather William Thuesen corresponded often with his brother Bertel Thuesen who remained behind in Denmark and the two swapped photographs which we still have.
