PETERSEN-ERICKSEN----Frederiksborg-----SS Hector

Classification: Query
I am looking for Martha PETERSEN and Lewis ERICKSEN who are both in Ohio, USA, in 1910. Martha had siblings Russell, Sam, and Tilda (married a Bureaguard?). Lewis had siblings Joe and Agnes. Martha's parents stayed in Denmark. Lewis' mother came to America, I believe. Family stories say both were born in Copenhagen, however, I have found a Martha born 1 Sep 1884 (right year) in Horsholm, Frederiksborg, Denmark, daughter of Hans Lauritz PETERSEN and Marie Sophie ERIKSEN (coincidence in name!). Also, Lewis served on the SS Hector from age 14-21 (approx 1989-1905) traveling back and forth to Philadelphia with animal hides, bones, and skulls for a fertilizer plant. According to family lore, he "jumped ship," thus there is no immigration record. I also cannot find any record for Martha's immigration. Help?
