I am needing help finding the ancestors of Anne Margrethe Thomsen.
According to parish marriage records from her husband parish where they were married in 1875, she is listed as being born on 2 different dates, 10 Mar 1846 and the other is 17 Mar 1846, so either one could be correct.

I have no other Danish information on her other than that.....I have her marriage info to Soren Pedersen, the names and aprx dates of the births of 2 of their children born in Hoptrup parish where I suppose Soren worked....and then their emigration to the US.

Soren and Anne had 2 children in Denmark, Peter N and Andrew C. Peter was born sometime in Jan 1876 and Andrew was born 21 Jul 1878. They left not too long afterward for America, showing them living in Sabula Iowa in 1880.

I do not know what Anne Margrethe's parents names were or anything further back than what I have listed.
A troubling thing is that on the Vejle parish records, she is listed both ways : Anne Margrethe and just Margrethe. I am not certain which one is the correct first name.

I have managed to get quite a bit of info about her husband, Soren Pedersen, but nothing on her. The tree is looking lopsided !

Ideally, I would love to find a living relative. I was so lucky this year with my genealogy in many ways, but the best was in finding a living relative in Sweden on my Jansson/Wilson side. I found her from her website on which she posted her family tree !

Thank you in advance,

Lori Callaway
