I tried to reply to Knud Rasmussen and received my email back mailer daemon...undeliverable.
My great grandmother: Maren Hansine "Sena" Jeppesen came through Ellis Island in 1893 on the ship Itala listing place of residence as Gjedsteleo at age of 19.
Grandma told me that her grandparents (parents of Sena) were Bodil "Bertha" Hansen and Jorgen Jeppesen, they never came to America.
She married Anders Jorgensen (also from Fyn, Heden Parish) in Nebraska before settling in Exira, Audubon County, IA.
Her brother Anders Julius Jeppesen was born 1870 listed residence as Palkhaus, Gjestev, Sogn (?) of Palleshave, Svendborg and came to America in 1892 and married
Jacobine Christensen in 1894. They also settled in/near Exira, Audubon County, IA and were farmers.
I do not know anything of their parents or siblings.
