See specific sources cited at giving this information about the Ebson family:

Christian Ludolf Ebsen Sr. was a Danish choreographer, who once owned a dance studio and was also a physical fitness advocate, before operating a natatorium for the local school district. Buddy Ebson's mother, Frances (née Wendt) Ebsen was a Baltic German (specifically, Latvian) painter.

Buddy Ebsen was born as Christian Ludolf Ebsen Jr., on April 2, 1908, in Belleville, Illinois.

Buddy Ebsen was raised in Belleville. IL until the age of 10, when his family moved to Palm Beach County, Florida.

In 1920, Ebsen and his family relocated to Orlando, Florida. Buddy and his sisters learned to dance at a dance studio his father operated in Orlando, Florida.

Family financial problems caused by the collapse of the Florida land boom forced Buddy Ebsen to leave college at age 20.

Parts of southern Dennmark and Germany changed hands and many Danes lived in Germany so that might account for how Christian was originally listed on this memorial as born in Germany.
