Hello,

Thank you so much for checking! It's so hard when family history doesn't match what one can find in the records. I used the online Denmark census site - http://www.ddd.dda.dk/asp/vis_husstand_uk.asp and found him here in the 1880 census:

Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Lars Jørgensen 39 Gift skomagersvend Klodskov, Falster
Marie Christensen 39 Gift hans hustru Brarup Sogn, Maribo Amt
Johan Jørgensen 10 Ugift deres søn Nykøbing Falster
Rasmus Jørgensen 7 Ugift deres søn Nykøbing Falster
Edmund Jørgensen 3 Ugift deres søn Nykøbing Falster
Agnes Jørgensen 2 Ugift deres datter Nykøbing Falster

By 1890 he's not listed in the family:

Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Lars Jørgensen 49 Gift husfader skomagersvend Klodskov, Falster
Karen Marie Christensen 49 Gift husmoder Brarup Sogn, Maribo Amt
Edmund August Jørgensen 13 Ugift barn Nykøbing Falster
Agnes Marie Magdalene Christensen 12 Ugift barn Kjøbenhavn
Dagmar Rosa Jørgensen 8 Ugift barn Nykøbing Falster
Agnes Magdalene Jensen 7 Ugift plejebarn Kjøbenhavn

Johan was the son of Lars Jørgensen and Marie Christensen and was born between 1870 - 1874. My great grandma was Rosa Dagmar Jørgensen but she died before I was born. My grandma said that Johan became a minister in Roskilde, but never said which church he ministered in. Now according to the census, he was not with his family in 1890 when he would have been about 20 years old, but he didn't marry until 1900, so I'm not sure where he was during that time. School perhaps? I don't know.

I don't have any idea why they all had different last names, but I know that they had either some foster children, or the children of a relative...but I'm not really clear on all of that.

Anyway, I do appreciate you searching the census records for me...I'll be so glad when they eventually get them all posted online!

If you have any other ideas about how to go about finding him, I'd love to have them!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much!
