I collected some information from the Danish census records.

1880 Cecilie was living with her foster parents in Oerum Parish near Vejle:
Vejle, Nørvang, Sindbjerg, Ørum By, Et hus, 11, FT-1880, A2332
Name: Age: Status: Position in Household: Occup.: Place of Birth:
Ane Kristensen 56 Widow Head Kollerup sogn
Niels Andersen 21 Her child Sindbjerg sogn
Abbelone Andersen 19 Her child Sindbjerg sogn
Secilie Johansen 13 Foster child Vejle

1870 the family looked like this:
Vejle, Nørvang, Sindbjerg, Vester Ørum, Et hus, 4, FT-1870, a2333
Name: Age: Status: Position in Household: Occup.: Place of Birth:
Anders Nielsen 38 Married Head Worker Grejs
Ane Christensen 46 Married Housewife Vindelev
Mads Andersen 11 Son Sindbjerg
Abelone Andersen 9 Daughter Sindbjerg
Sessilie Dortea Magdalene Johansen 3 Foster child Vejle

Note that Niels Andersen is not mentioned here.

But he belongs to the family as can be seen in the 1860 census:
vejle, Nørvang, Sindbjerg, Ørum, Et hus, 56, FT-1860, A2334
Name: Age: Status: Position in Household: Occup: Place of Birth:
Anders Nielsen 29 married Head Smallholder and worker Sindbjerg sogn
Ane Christensdatter 36 married Housewife Vindelev sogn
Niels Andersen 2 Son Sindbjerg sogn

So in the 1870 census Mads could be a mistake for Niels or, Niels was already at age 12 working at some other place (quite common).

Now for the emigration. Four family members left Denmark together April 1881:

Note that Niels Andersen and Abelone are listed as man and wife, so this Niels Andersen must be another. Also this Niels is 4 years older that Abelone, where the census records only have two years between brother and sister.
And note that Ane Christensen suddenly is much younger!

(Hint: The contract no. shows who are travelling together.)

I'll check the parish birth, confirmation and marriage records if I find the time. Or someone else might volunteer:-))
