My grandfather,Louis Nels Ottosen. who immigrated at age 18 with older brother Chris Ottosen to NYC. They lived with Aunt, who was also from Copenhagen after arrival. Louis Nels joined the U.S. Cavalry at approximately 20 years of age, and eventually settled in Minnesota. Does anyone have knowledge of parents or relatives in Denmark?

Nice old photos.

Starting with the family tree listed in your Ancestry profile, I traced him to Swift County, Minnesota 1900 and his widow and children in Idaho 1910, and found his Find a Grave site that lists him as Niels L. Ottosen born 30 Dec 1870:

Ancestry also lists his enlistment in 10th Infantry 1893 at Chicago as Niels L. Ottosen age 22 born Copenhagen, and discharge 1896 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory.

In the 1900 census, he listed 1890 immigration year, but I don't find him in passenger lists.

Do you have a birth date or other info for the brother Chris, and the aunt's name?

Thank you for you prompt reply, it has been helpful.
I don't have a birtdate for his brother, but believe he is a couple of years older and full name is probably Christian.

I believe the Aunt to be Anna Rheins
