I believe he is in this family tree. Only I would say judging from the census records thats he's born abt. 1753.

From the census records:

Thisted, Morsø Sønder, Mollerup, Mollerup Bye, , 6, FT-1787, B2691
Navn: Alder: Civilstand: Stilling i husstanden: Erhverv: Fødested:

Else Sørensdatter 1 datter
Kiersten Christensdatter 16 Ugift tjenestepige

Thisted, Morsø Sønder, Mollerup, Mollerup Bye, , 8, FT-1801, B5833
Navn: Alder: Civilstand: Stilling i husstanden: Erhverv: Fødested:

His death was on August 7th 1834 in Mollerup; his age is listed as 83, which takes us back to 1751 again.

Thank you very much for the information. According to the information that I have then....Christen Andersen Bach would be my husband's GGGGG grandfather. We are travelling to Denmark/Norway/Sweden in June for a month and would like to visit the family farm. All of his ancestors have the name Bach after then except for his grandfather, who was called Soren Christen Christensen Mydummollegaard (1873-1950). We would love to meet some relatives if possible, if there are any. I do not understand this grandfather's last name. What farm do we need to be looking for....Bach or Mydummollegaard? Are there maps on the internet that we can find these farms? Thanks so much for all your help.

About Mydummollegaard:
Mydum Møllegaard (Mydum Mill Farm). Located west of Øster Assels village.
On Google Earth search for the exact address “Møllebjerget 16, 7990 Øster Assels, Denmark “.
The wind mill was placed south of the road, but is long gone.

About the name Bach:
Derived from “Bakke” =Hill. Likely used to identify a family from a farm on a hill. Variations are Bakke, Bak, Bach (the last form origins from 17/18th century artificial name germanization by pastors). No proof that this name has a common offspring in Denmark.
So forget about finding a specific Bach-farm.

Seeking relatives. How do you define “relatives”? Descendants of Søren Christian Christensen (1873-1950) or descendants of his siblings/half-siblings?
Going back far enough we are all related:-)
Anyway this is a very time consuming project, and based on experience I’ll not support you in that.

Just in case anyone else should be interested in supporting your search for living relatives I post the family from the 1880 census:
Thisted, Morsø Sønder, Øster Assels, Øster Assels, Mydummøllegaard, 97, FT-1880, C5262

Søren Mydum Chrestensen 2 Ugift Søn Øster Assels

One more child Else Maria Nielsine Sørine Dusine Christensen, born 8. Aug 1882.
The name "Dusine" of the last born girl indicates that she was child no. 12. of Jensine.

3 known children in 1st marriage (surname Sørensen or Pedersen)

Thank you for all your information. I have sent a letter to the farm on Google Earth. I hope they reply, but not too optimistic. I will be reposting another inquiry in regards to Jensine Jacobsen Krog within the next day or two. I appreciate all your help.
