Re: Broder Dinnsen and Andres "Andrew" Dinnsen

Classification: Query
Surnames: Dinnsen
Through my research so far, I have found x3 separate family groups of surname "Dinnsen" that came to the United States between 1850 and 1920. This is not counting alternative surname spellings of "Denson" or "Dinsen".
The group I am a descendant of came in two waves. Broder Dinnsen the oldest arrive in the USA in 1888 at age 55 with his wife and most of his children. His oldest son Andreas "Andrew" Dinnsen followed in about 1893. Broder's family concentrated in Nebraska and Colorado, while Andrews family concentrated in New York and then onto Colorado.
In the 1899-1900 time frames there is a family surname group of "Dinnsen" that immigrated into the Chicago, Illinois area. This group seemed to come from Germany via Liverpool England.
In the 1900 -1920 time frame there is another family surname group of "Dinnsen" that immigrated into the Washington State Area.
There are a couple of Dinnsen surnames I see immigrating into the USA identified as "Irish" and not Danish.
Of the x3 surname Dinnsen groups, many have the same names, and it is difficult to know for sure on lineage. I am trying to sort out information on which "Dinnsen" people are related and which are not, or maybe they all are?
I am looking for "Obits" on any of the below, any information back in Germany or Denmark, pictures, family stories, etc..
I am also trying to figure out how and when the rest of Broders children and his Brother Carsten arrived in the USA.
Thank you,
A. Gray
