Otto J.H. Nielsen was born on the 22nd of May 1886 in Fredriksborg, Randers amt, son of unmarried Augusta Olsen (from Sweden) and Niels Peter Nielsen. Otto was later adopted by his stepfather Jens Christian Yde b.1867. Jens Christian Yde married Augusta Olsen in 1891, but I don't know where.
I know Jens Christian Yde spent time in America.
Otto Yde also went to America, I can find him on Ancestry, he lived in Brooklyn, New York in 1920 census. I've also found that he got married on the 3rd of April 1920, but I've I'm not able to order a copy of that certificat. I find them as a couple on Ancestry.com on the way back from Denmark to New York in 1923. His wife, with the name Grete is born in 1882, in Trondheim, Norway, she can be the relative I've been looking for for years, I just need to get hold of her maiden name to be sure.
In 1925 census for Nørrebrogade 22 in Århus (opslag 55), I find Otto's stepfather and mother living with a grandchild born 22nd of February 1922 in Brooklyn, New York, with the name Jens Christian Yde, but no sign of his parents.
Can anyone help me here???
