If anyone has the ability and willingness to look up information about my g. grandmother, I would greatly appreciate it! I know a few things about her, mainly stuff after she immigrated, not so much about her parents.
Magda Kathrine Knudsen, b. Dec 5, 1889 in Swendborg, Denmark. She emigrated in 1915, leaving Copenhagen, arriving in New York May 15, 1915 on the ship Frederik VIII. My father says she talked a lot about growing up in Swendborg, so I'm assuming she spent most, if not all of her time there. She eventually marries Peter Rasmussen,(also a Dane), b. 1864 (Denmark) in Wisconsin in 1920.
Her father is Lauritz Knudsen b. about 1865(?) in Denmark and her mother's name was Catherine Kaas, b. about 1867(?) in Swendborg, Denmark. Catherine died of TB when Magda was 2, so that would be about 1891. According to an inscription on a wedding ring, I think Lauritz and Catherin's marriage date is Dec. 27, 1886. I was told Lauritz remarried after Catherine died.
Any help or insight would be very much appreciated!
