The Soren Laursen I have was born 11 Mar 1892 and died 31 Mar 1975,at which time he still had a sister living in Westbrook,ME. Her name was Mrs. Pauline Paulsen. Soren was born in New Denmark,New Brunswick,Canada. He came to Geneva,NY about 1912. I should be able to e-mail you his obituary and decendancy list.

Thatis the birth date I have for Soren also. I knew Aunt Pauline quite well. Remember attending a family reunion at their dairy farm when I was a little girl. After months of trying to locate some family, have I finally done so? Amazing.
Thanks so much. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.
Aunt Pauline's son Everett still lives in Westbrook, Maine. Just saw him last November at my Uncle Bob's (Johnson)funeral.

Soren, Pauline, and Jensine

Thank you for all that information. Lots of familly since that. I am the grandaughter of Elias and Celia (Laursen)Johnson. My father was Chester Forrest Johnson. His brothers were Herman Elias and Robert Veiling. Robert, the youngest brother, just passed away last Thanksgiving at the age of 87. My father died April 4, 1986.
Herman and his wife, Dorothea had two daughter, Betty Louise and Ruth Janice. Each of them had four children. My parents, Chester and Dorothy, had two children, me and my brother Chester F. Jr. I have four children and my brother has three. Robert and his wife Pauline had two sons, Robert Veiling, II and Gregory Keith. Bob and his first wife, Sigrid, adopted two children, a boy and a girl. Greg, I have lost track of. Believe he has been married three times and am not sure of his children.
Thank you for answering. Am interested in any and all information.

I have been told that Soren's parents are Laurst Larsen son of Lars Vidricksen
and Jensine Kirstine Stephansdatter daughter of Stephan Jensen.

Kirsten's parents are Morten Christensen son of Christen Mortensen
and Birthe Larsdatter daughter of Lars Vidricksen

Yes, they are first cousins
It looks like your grandmother was named for her grandmothers
