I am trying to find possible relatives of Julia Denmark b. 15 May 1817 in New York, d. 6 Feb 1889, Michigan. She married Myndert Bovee (b. 6 Dec 1818, New York, d. 8 Jan 1894, Michigan), and their first child was born in Michigan in 1838.

I was able to find two John Denmarks who would have been the right age. The 1860 census has one born in 1793 in New York and living in 1860 in the Schoharie (NY) poor house, blind. Myndert Bovee's father was born in Schoharie.

The 1850 census lists a John in New York City, born in Sweden in 1790 and a "performer" with several children and grandchildren living with him.

Did you ever find any info? I'm looking for the same - Julia Denmark is my 3rd great grandmother and I'd love to be able to expand on her bit of my family tree but I have no idea of her parents names.
