Looking for family of Hans Simon Nielsen and wife, Ane Nielsen (daughter of Niels Christian Knudsen). Wedded Nov 22, 1879, lived at Norregade 26, Odense Kobstad, Odense, Fyn, Dansk in 1880. Emmigrated to Iowa in 1883 w/ daughter Agnes Theodora Kirstine age 2. Records indicate they traveled w/ Fred Nielsen, another family member who was headed for Chicago. Upon arrival in US they changed last name to Nelson and lived in Nebraska and Iowa areas. Do not know what happened to Fred.
Had 5 other children in US, Agnes Elisabeth b 1885, Frank Howard b 1887, William Theodor b 1889, George Christian b 1892 and Samuel Lee b 1894.
Would love to contact any Danish family as well as US family. Ane's maiden name was Nielsen as well. Both families were from Marslev parish, Fyn. Please email me direct if you suspect you know of any of these persons. Other family first names are Valdemar Nielsen, Soren Nielsen, Karen Nielsen & Peder Hansen (married & stayed in Egelund), and Niels Christian Nielsen.
I have alot more information to help identify them if you need. Thank you kindly.
