Hans Petur Ellingsgaard in Faeroe Islands

Hans Petur Ellingsgaard also known as Hans Petur Olsen left the Faeroe Islands for Brooklyn NY in America. He was indeed a sea captain and married the daughter of Jogvan Djonesen, a grocer in Tvoroyri (this is mentioned in the article) I have not been able to find Hans Petur ELLINGSGAARD in any of the US Census.

Jogvan Djonesen (in 1870 Danish or Faeroe Census) had a daughter Ellen Maria who we believe to be the Maria Ellingsgaard that left Kobenhavn on Oct 1 1872 with her three daughters and son John age 9.

This was my elusive link to the Faeroe Islands. We are the only ELLINGSGARD's in the USA. I did not know til recently that my ggf John H had three sisters - Elisabeth, Oluffa and Anna. I am now looking for links to them in the USA.
