This will make your head spin more.

Parents of Hans Madsen Kok were Else Lorentsdatter and Mads Hansen [per Flemming's finding in the churchbook].

From that I found a website that discusses this family and includes photographs of their home.

Most of the information is in Danish - I'm not the best person to translate for you.

Here's a long description (in Danish) of the farm where Else Lorentzdatter and Mads Hansen (Kok) lived, LINK:

You can see that the Else Lorentzdatter first lived here with her second husband, and then when he died, she lived here with her third husband Mads Hansen Kok.

I hope Google translate will work, or someone who speaks Danish can help. Also try GramTrans (
