Hi All I am looking for a little bit of help on my 2xGreat Grandmother Elsie (Elsa) Marie Kerstine Petersen (Pedersen) who I believe was born in Thisted in the early 1840's. She married Peder Christian Christiansen in the 1860's and together immigrated to the US, settling in Cass County Iowa, in the 1880s. (See attached photo)
I am trying, failing it seems, to identify her parents.
Anyone have ideas or hints that might point me to who her parents were? Or how to pinpoint it? I've been successful with all my other immigrant ancestors from Denmark, she just is a bit tougher for whatever reason.
Thanks for any help!!
