All,

I have run into a dead end with both of my great grandparents on my paternal grandfathers side. Here is what I know...

Marius Jensen

Born- 27 Sept 1887- Herring, Denmark

Arrival to US in 15 Nov 1910
Was 23 when he came to America from Silkeborg, Denmark on Oscar II. Port of Departure was Copenhagen. Manifest Line Number: 0022

Mary Jensen
Born: 28 Sept 1896- Copenhagen
Dad: Neils Jensen

Arrival: 28 Aug 1910
At 14, she came from Kobiuham, Denmark via Liverpool. The Ship was the Baltic.

Please help, if you can.

Hi Chris and Tanya, we need to clarify your info:

What is your source of Herring as Marius' birthplace? (possibly Hjørring County)

In 1917 Marius Jensen born 27 Sep 1887 registered for the draft in Chicago and listed birthplace as "Windend" Denmark
but I can find no place with a similar name in Denmark.

There were two different Marius Jensen's who arrived 1910 on the Oscar II:

The one who arrived 15 Nov was 24 and listed last residence as Graulund, Denmark and his father as Jens Møller Jensen

The one who listed Silkeborg as last residence was 23 and arrived 13 April, his father listed as Henry Vilh? Jensen.

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

Mary Jensen came from København (Copenhagen) and listed her nearest relative as mother Hanna Eriksson.

I think you've found him Flemming! The father's name doesn't match either of those I listed on 1910 passenger lists, but I suspect neither of them were the correct Marius:

Marius Jensen born 27 Sept 1887 was naturalized 1917 in Chicago and listed 11 June 1910 arrival in USA.

I don't find them in Vinding 1890 census, or Marius' confirmation, so they must have moved.

Marius' birthplace was on his passport. His father is stated as Ole Jensen. I know nothing from this point forward.

The passport application (attached) reads HERNING, in Ringkøbing and maybe that's where they moved from Vinding, Skanderborg.

Great job Flemming!

And I have found Mary:

Marius and Mary probably met on shipboard returning from separate trips to their homes in Denmark, and on the attached 1922 manifest Marius Jensen of Chicago is listed next after Mary Jensen and her brother Alfred from Tulsa, Oklahoma (passengers 17, 18, 19).

Jens Peter Alfred Jensen born 5 Aug 1898 registered for the draft 1917 in Tulsa.

JPAJ registered with the Copenhagen police in 1912-1914 and listed birthplace as Frederiksberg, and his birth is recorded there, parents Niels Jensen and Karen Marie Henriksen (Frederiksberg 1896-1899 opslag 278 no. 319)

Mary Ingeborg Elly Jensen born 28 Sep 1896, same parents (Frederiksberg 1894-1896 opslag 357 no. 528, attached)

Niels Jensen born 10 July 1869, son of Jens Jensen and Inger Nielsen

Karen Marie Henriksen born 22 Mar 1872, daughter of Anders Henriksen and Maren Olsdatter

Married 27 October 1895 (Frederiksberg 1894-1897 opslag 70, attached)
