Surnames: Neilson, Gron, Green, Rasmussen
I am looking for the family of Niels Nielson Gron out of Aabybro, Denmark. He Married Kristine Rasmussen in the late 1880's in Denmark.
Their children were Maire (1889) (m. Christian Kalsen), Johanne (1892)(m. Christain Berg), Marius (1894) (m. Virginia Kerr), Neils Jenson (1889) (m. Anna ?), Aage (1900) (m. Inger Tranum (1901) & m. Mae Sobstad), Mary (1904) & Anna (Twin who died early), Eldna (1906), and Santo (1908) (m. Mary).
In 1894 They changed their name from Nielson to Gron for Business reasons. (The goverment wouldn't buy thier horses unless their last name ended in something besides "...sen".) They chose Gron because Niels & his brothers (Jennson, :Lars & Sorren) had visisted Greenland in their youth & were known in Aabybro as the boys who returned from Greenland. I don't know if the Brothers changed their surnames to Gron as well or not.
When a few of Niels & Kristine's sons immigrated to the USA, their name was Anglicized to Green.
Any infromaion on this family would be helpfull!!! I am looking for information on Neils & Kristine's parents & thier children in particular, but any information partaining to this family would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Corrie
