Herman Nielsen was born in 1791 to Niels Hermansen and Maren Sorensdatter. His son, Thomas, was born in 1819 in Grimstrup, I believe. Thomas was a school teacher and married my gr-gr grandmother, Sophie Jepsen (Jeppesen). I have no other information on Herman Nielsen. Thank you for responding to my query.

Yes, this is my Thomas Hermansen!! I wasn't sure if Thomas Nielsen Hermansen and Thomas Auctrup were the same person. Was it common for the middle name to change? That is what made me unsure it was the same person at first. Thank you for taking the time to find this for me. I very much appreciate your time and help.

Do you have any information on Sophie's arrival to America in 1881. I found the families tickets, but they are indirect meaning they were out of a different port or something from what I was told. The only info i am missing on them is the ship they came over on.

Thomas and Sohpie would be my 4th great grandmother. I have found the census from 1845-1880, but it's not in English. Do you know what they did for a living in Denmark before they came over here or any other information about them. I would deeply appreciate.

Look at my tree and you can see the Hermansen relation.

Brooke- Please email me. I wasn't able to access your tree but would be interested in giving you whatever information I can. Sophie would have been my 3rd great-grandmother. I don't have a tree but I do have information on Sophie's son Karl's family. Excited to hear from you! Connie Hermansen-Eleshuk

I found the Census from Denmark from 1834 and is has Herman Nielson on there as widow male pensioner and it has Thomas Hermansen listed as foster child. I do not believe Herman Nielsen was Thomas Hermansen's real father. I am going to upload those hopefully tomorrow, so if you go on my tree maybe you can see them. I don't have time today though. Oh wait, I can attach it....let me try!
