RE:Danish Ancestors
May we continue our conversation via e-mail? There are several possibilities for our interconnectedness. I have been compiling information, off and on for 12 years, for the Olsen family. There were 13 children in the family of Ole and Else Marie Kristensen, of Asdal, Hjorring, Denmark. Eleven of those children came to America in the mid to late 1800's and all but two settled in Nuckolls County, Nebr. We have relatives all over the county. In 2013, we held a family reunion for the descendants of Ole and Else Marie (back 4 generations). It was fun to hear people say, "I've known you my whole life and I never knew we were related." The family surnames for these include: Olsen, Olesen, Oleson, Knudsen, Johnson, Petersen, Fredriksen, Klitten, Jeppesen and Nielsen/Iversen.

Current generation surnames include: Petersen, Simonsen, Christensen, Larsen, Knudsen, Jorgensen, Wagensen, Andersen,... :-0

It would be fun to keep in contact with you.

RE: Your bio
What part of Denmark do the Olen(s), Petersen(s) and Fredriksen(s) come from?

RE: Your bio
OK, my curiosity is up. Is there a chance all these Danish surnames you mention had folks living in Nuckolls County, Nebraska?

Thank you VERY much for the photos. I thought that if someone was in the area that it would be easier to take all the photos at one time.
Happy Spring to you!

Abigail Davis
Thank you for finding Abigail's headstone and taking a photograph.

I'd like to make a couple suggestions: Can you crop the grass away from the stone; making the stone more prominent and readable. If it works on your computer program, maybe turn the photo around so the wording is right side up.

You would have to make the corrections on your computer; delete the photo that is there; add the new photo.

Thank you for your time and attention to providing a photo of Abigail's headstone.

Don--I appreciate you taking the photo for me of Louis Max Bergelt, and I hate to even ask it--but would you mind taking the photo again? There was some glare on the stone that made it difficult to see the birth date. Thank you. --Matt
