Hej Steve, I'm sure if Flemming had found Johan's birth place he would post it. FYI usually if a genealogy trail leads to Germany, experts in Danish genealogy pass the baton. That region has a different set of tools for research.

You might try probate records for Johan in Nørup sogn to see if any siblings in Germany/Prussia are mentioned.

In 1834 Johan was living at Lihme Mark, Nørup sogn, Tørrild herred, Vejle. His wife is Sidsel (sometimes spelled Zidsel) Hansdatter. A lodger and her daughter are living at the same address or in their household. This lodger must be Johan's daughter. Based on the records below, her name would be
Ane Marie Lovise Johannesdatter Dehnhardt born about 1811 in Nørup sogn. She continues to live with Sidsel after Johan's death.

Another clue to Johan's origins could be Johan's occupation. This could be related to his reasons for migrating.

Danish Census 1834
Vejle, Tørrild, Nørup, Udbygger paa Lihme Mark, et Huus, 39, FT-1834, C0679
Johan Fredrik Deenhart 48 Gift Fæstehuusmand og Papiiermager
Sidsel Hansdatter 51 Gift Hans Kone (born about 1783)
Ane Marie Lovise Johannesdatter 23 Gift Indsidder
Laurits Johansen Hendes Søn

The next earlier census as you no doubt know is 1801.

We know Sidsel would be a widow in 1840 census. This is likely her:

Vejle, Tørrild, Nørup, Lihme Mark, et Huus, 81, FT-1840, C2641
Sidsel Hansdatter 58 Enke/widow Lever af sni huuslod
Johan Lauritsen 30 Gift Daglejer
Lovise Johannesdatter 29 Gift Hans Kone
Laurits Johansen 7 Ugift Deres Børn
Sidsel Marie Johansen 5 Ugift Deres Børn
Johanne Frederikke Johansen 3 Ugift Deres Børn
Christian Johansen 1 Ugift Deres Børn

In 1845 Sidsel has adopted the modern-day practice of a woman taking her husband's surname (or at least the census taker thinks so):

Vejle, Tørrild, Nørup, Lihme Mark, et huus, 118, FT-1845, c1578
Ane Marie Lovise Dehnhardt 35 Ugift Indsidder ernærer sig med lidt haandarbejde (birthplace) Her i sognet
Laust Johansen 12 Ugift Hendes børn Her i sognet
Sidsel Marie Johansen 10 Ugift Hendes børn Her i sognet
Joh Frederik Johansen 8 Ugift Hendes børn Her i sognet
Henrik Johansen 3 Ugift Hendes børn Her i sognet
en datter (udøbt) 1 Ugift Hendes børn Her i sognet
Sidsel Dehnhart 66 Enke Huuskone ernærer sig med lidt haandarbejde Her i sognet <------------

Since Sidesel was born in Nørup sogn, her marriage no doubt took place in Nørup sogn. Look up (or ask for a look up) of this marriage record because it may mention Johan's birthplace.


Possibly the same Sidsel in 1787 in the village of Lihme:

Vejle, Tørrild, Nørup, Nørup Sogn, Lihme Bye, 68, FT-1787, C2110
Karen Madsdatter!! 27 Enke Madmoder Bonde Kone og Gaard Beboerske
Terkild Hansen 5 - Hendes Børn af 1ste Ægteskab
Sidsel Hansdatter 4 - Hendes Børn af 1ste Ægteskab
Maren Hansdatter 2 - Hendes Børn af 1ste Ægteskab
Marthe Madsdaatter 15 Ugift Hendes Søster Som Tienestepige
