I am looking for information about my great grand uncles Christian, Peter, and Andreas Thomsen. They were brothers of my great grandfather, Jens Laurtiz Julius Thomsen (Thompson). They lived in or around Hjorring, Denmark. Any help is appreciated.

Jens Laurits Julius Thomsen b. 18 July 1867

Fredrik Christian Theodor Thomsen b. 3 January 1870

Poul Peter August Thomsen b. 25 July 1872

Andreas Thomsen b. 10 April 1876

Finding later info of Jens' brothers will be difficult, as Christian, and Peter were confirmed at Tornby, but Andreas was not, so the family probably left the parish before 1890-91.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jens arrived Philadelphia from Liverpool 25 April 1904 on the S. S. Haverford.

Anne and the children arrived New York from Christiansgård 25 July 1904.

I see that Flemming had found births of Hans and Axel in an earlier post. Another son was born 1901 but died two weeks later:

Hans Henrik Thomsen b. 6 September 1901, died 20 September
(Hjørring, Vennebjerg, Hjørring 1900-1910, opslag 30 no 97)

The US censuses list Germany as birthplace of the mother and oldest daughter, so Jens and Anne probably married there:

1910 census, Livingston County, Illinois
Jens L Thompson 42 Denmark, married 18 years, to US 1904
Anna S Thompson 44 Germany, 10 children, 4 living, to US 1904
Marie Thompson 16 Germany
Christ Thompson 13 Denmark
Axel Thompson 6 Denmark
Annie Thompson 3 Illinois

My great grandfather Jens Thomsen was born July 18, 1867 in Hjorring, and he emigrated to the US in 1904. He settled in Livingston County, IL. He changed his last name to Thompson.
